With an 0-2 record, the football team is going into Thursday’s game looking to hit hard and get the win against Sherman (1-1) starting at 7 p.m. at the The Ford Center.

“I think we are going to do pretty good,” senior Nicholas Poole said. “I feel like we need to lock in, motivate, on whatever side the football we are on.”

Looking to end the team’s 13 game losing streak, the team is keeping their heads up.

“I think we are going to do alright,” senior Ethan Qualls said. “We need to encourage everybody, and everybody needs to do their jobs. We need to keep the faith.”

Whether it’s going over plays in practice, or lifting weights, winning or losing is now a mental game according to first-year head coach Matt Swinnea. 

“Physically we have done what we needed to do,” Swinnea said in an earlier interview with Wingspan. “It is now all about the mental. Nothing about last season should influence this season because no one should be the same person or player that they were.”
