The best 5A football teams in the state put their rivalry aside at the Milk Bowl to pay tribute to Boise's finest. During the biggest game of the season, Mountain View High School and Capital High School fought tooth and nail. Not only for the chance to win state, but also to show support for the Boise Police Department Both team paying tribute with a decal of Boise's finest on their helmet. This after two officers were injured and police K9 Jardo was killed after a shootout with a wanted felon on the Boise Bench last week,
"It's really I think something cool for the two football teams to honor the Boise PD and those who were injured and the K9 that was killed," Said Boise School District Superintendent Don Coberly.
For Mountain View High School, the tragic shooting hit home. Corporal Chris Davis's son is a student at the Meridian School. School administrators say they paid close attention to the grieving student as well as their student body after the shooting.
"It's scary anytime one of our students are close to someone like a parent who is involved something like this we always have great concern for parents and our students," said Mountain View High School Principal Aaron Maybon.
Mountain View High School won the game 42 to 25. A memorial service for Jardo is planned for this coming Tuesday at Taco Bell Area at 3pm.
