2...4...6...8... Big Sandy Fans Want Two More Straight!

The message is clear. Whether it's on store front windows or even on moving cars, the whole town of Big Sandy is behind their beloved football team. "Watching those boys is a dream. It's like living all over again... I love going!" says Monica Decuir who's known in the community as one of Wildcat Football's biggest fans. Decuir was a student at Big Sandy High when they took the crown in the 70's and she's hoping history will repeat itself. So with her lucky T-shirt on and her custom blue and yellow manicure, she says she's just one of many in Big Sandy backing the cats. "You're adrenaline's rushing. You can't stop jumping and hollering and screaming, your adrenaline's just flowing because you think so much of those kids!"

"Go Wildcats!" says Ken Lowery holding up the number one sign. He really needs a band-aid because as he told us: "I bleed blue and yellow!". This fan secured his passes into the semi-final game in Waco. But he says you don't have to go very far to feel the community's support. "The fans, they're crazy right now. All the people are excited. They're backing the boys and everybody's hoping for the best."

So are the Big Sandy High School students. Their school is filled with signs and spirit chains and the town's support, they say, is not going un-noticed. "So like before the guys leave off everyone meets at the red light in Big Sandy," says Wildcat Cheerleader Lara Stephens, "and we do cheers and stuff and a lot of the football guys pass and everybody's like, you know, screaming and doing cheers for them." Senior Jerry Simcisk adds, "We've got the horns, they bring duck calls, cow calls, anything to make noise and get the guys pumped up!" Pumped up for semi's and hopefully for a state final berth.

As Wildcat Mascot Claressa Davis predicts, "Oh for sure, we're definitely gonna win this... Definitely!"

The school spirit continues Friday night with a bonfire and pep rally on tap. The Wildcats play Saturday night at 7 o'clock in Waco. They take on the number one team in the state, undefeated Shriner.

    Don't shoot the messenger, argue with Jason Stark. The ESPN reporter released a reason for each MLB team on Tuesday explaining why they won't win the World Series. You might argue with Stark, but his point is pretty valid when it comes to the Rangers.
