While the varsity football team has not won a game yet, the team pushes the losses aside to make sure they are learning and growing from those experiences.
“I am looking forward to our team growing and mentally maturing to the point where success is a product of doing the little things the right way,” coach Kyle Mullins said.
As with every year, the team sets its goals on winning the first sectional game in program history. However, this year, the team added to the list of goals with trusting the process, winning its first homecoming game since the restart of the program in 2014, treating every game like a five-star match-up and accomplishing a team GPA more than 3.0.
The varsity team came close to its first win in the first game against Clarksville. So far, the JV football team has won two out of four games this year.
“I make new goals every week. My goals for the entirety of the season would be to push myself to the best I can,” sophomore running back Hunter Richart said.
Most of the players have about the same goals — to give their all no matter what.
“I don’t care how many yards I get at the end of the day. Yeah sure, there are some perks to it, but I’d rather make the memories that last forever than worry about a simple little stat,” junior running back Traven Crawford said.
