The Atlantic City High School football team has waited seven years for this week.
The fifth-seeded Vikings will play at fourth-seeded Rancocas Valley in a Central Jersey Group V quarterfinal Friday. It is Atlantic City’s first playoff appearance since 2016.
“This is huge,” Atlantic City coach Keenan Wright said. “It shows hard work and perseverance pay off. I’m so happy for our kids and our community that can celebrate with us.”
