“They are successful for a reason and have been doing it for a long time. We have some tough kids and I am proud of them as always.

“Our football program has made tremendous strides in a relatively short amount of time. We still are climbing that mountain though. We still have some work to do.

“We have another chance this week to go out and prove ourselves next week against a quality opponent in Hico.”
