With the season more than halfway completed, the football team looks to gain a winning record and have their first playoff game at home. Currently standing with a 2-3 record, the Jags play a non-conference away game at Great Bend on October 5. After coming off a 1 point loss to Maize South at home, the Jags hope to bounce back.
Senior linebacker, Sam Thomas, hopes the tough games can push the team forward.
“It makes us want to win more,” Thomas said. “I’ve seen the drive definitely kick up in everyone.”
Head coach Tom Audley thinks that practicing hard can give the team an edge.
“We’re probably ahead where we’ve been in the past as far as putting stuff in, and executing it,” Audley said.
Thomas agrees, thinking practicing hard is the best way to get better.
“Better reps during the week, more reps at practice is really the best way,” Thomas said.
The team plans to make the best of the players they have this year and make as far of a run as possible in the postseason.
“Each year tends to deal with the talent we have as far as what we run. That’s why some years you do the same thing and some years you have to find something else to do to give your kids a chance to do something good,” Audley said.
The Jags got their only win, to this point, at home against Valley Center on September 21. Currently, the team is at a .400 win percentage. They hope to win the next league game against the rival, Andover, at the Andover District Stadium on October 12.
