At 0-3, the football team is looking for its first win against South Garland Thursday night at Toyota Stadium at 7:00 p.m. in the school’s homecoming game.

“I think there’s going to be a lot more people and since the stands are fuller, the football players are going to be a lot more energized,” sophomore Gillian Bryant said. “I think we have a better chance of winning the homecoming game because the district games are against harder teams.”

Homecoming can put pressure on a team to come away with a win, but head football coach Chris Burtch says that’s not the case.

“Homecoming’s great,” Burtch said. “I like the atmosphere and I like the spirit our student section always brings to the games. I love hearing those guys and turning around in pregame and seeing all those guys and girls up there. As far as pressure, I feel like there’s pressure to win every game. I think there is less pressure to win a homecoming game than there is to win a district game. I guess there is a little bit of pressure, but not anymore than any other. I think it’s going to be a great time.”
