Daingerfield playing for magnificent 7

Posted: Updated:
DAINGERFIELD, TX (KLTV) -

Talk about a sign of the times. It's a sign of dominance in Daingerfield.

"Winning is expected," said Daingerfield senior Donovan Dublin.

"The crowd is hard to please down here," said Daingerfield senior Edwin Mims.  "If we don't make it to state, they are mad."

There is plenty of reason to smile this year. One of the state's dominant programs, it playing in their ninth championship game.

"Our kids know that when they go home, they may have a dad or an uncle that played in a state championship game and anytime you have those types of bloodlines, it is going to help your community," said Daingerfield head coach Aric Sardinea.

"I had an uncle that started at corner on the 1983 team and a cousin on the 2008 team," said Mims.  "So we all have a ring and show it off, it is a lot of fun."

This year's team will do something none of the others have.  They will play for school's seventh championship at Cowboys Stadium.

"It is gynormous, a pretty big stadium," said Dublin. "Biggest I've played in for sure and getting to play state there will be a great thing."

The Tigers aren't satisfied with a trip to Jerry's World.

"It is fun to get there to get to experience it and get to play on TV, but, we still have a goal we are still going to win it," said Mims.

If they do, it will just be another chapter in one of the best high school programs in Texas.

"Sometimes I just sit there, and I'm like. 'Man, I have two rings, trying to get three,' we just have to keep that tradition up and alive," said Mims.

Daingerfield plays Cameron Yoe, Friday at Noon at Cowboys Stadium.
