RUTLAND — The key to the Otter Valley Union High School team’s Division III football team’s 2015 championship, won on Saturday at Rutland High School, 33-14 over U-32, was, in fact, a key.
That key, in the possession of OV Athletic Director Steven Keith, opens the school’s weight room. Two days after last year’s heartbreaking loss to BFA-Fairfax in the 2014 D-III final, 15 Otters asked Keith for that key.
They wanted to make sure a team like Fairfax didn’t push them around again. This year, no one did.
