First of all, I would like to thank all of you for being such great fans the other night. I thought we had a great home-field advantage, that helped us win the football game. Obviously, it was a great game, and we were so proud of our guys. I’ve been told by several people it was the greatest football game they have ever seen, and people watched it on TV in New York, Virginia, Alabama, etc. It was a great night for our entire school and program. We had a lot of adversity but our guys fought through it all, and just found a way to win. They have come a long way in a year. Evangel actually had more starters back than we did this year so we were mostly the same teams from last year. Our program has taken some hits over the last few months, but what I keep telling people is that our kids work extremely hard and they are very committed. That starts at home with you and I want to thank you for that. Our program would not be successful without support from the home. It is an honor to coach your sons, and I think they are learning a lot about life with all that has gone on.
Remember that we have a coaches TV show that comes on every Tuesday night. You can watch it tonight @ 9:00 p.m. on Family 45, which is channel 21 on Cox cable. Also, all of our games will be replayed on Thursday nights @ 9:00 p.m. on the Jones channel, which is channel 22 on Cox cable. Supposedly, our game with Evangel is going to be replayed on Fox Sports Southwest, so we will let you know if that is going to happen.
We are playing Tulsa Lincoln Christian this Friday in another huge game. They are currently ranked #1 in Oklahoma, and are a very well-coached team. Last year, we beat them 14-7 and they went on to have a 12-2 season, losing in the state semi-finals. They have a great team and it's going to be a tough game. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Be here early for another great night of football.
