Hundreds Cheer On Bulldogs At Community Pep Rally

It was cold outside Thursday night, but even that didn't put a chill on Bulldog fans burning desire to see their team become champions.
Hundreds turned out for a community pep rally at R.E. St. John Stadium in Kilgore to cheer on the Bulldogs.
"It is cold out here, " said Ginny Anderson, "it's very cold but it's worth it, they've worked very hard they won 15 games."
"I'm confident because the players are confident," said Robert Morgan. "These boys have worked all season for this and they're going to bring it home."
"I think it's cool, I think they work hard," said 10-year-old Shelby White.
"Oh man I'm happy," cheered Mark Jackson. "I hope they make it. I think it's going to be like 30 to nothing. I know Kilgore. They're good."
Kilgore's Dog Pound gained a few thousand members Thursday night, that vow they'll be sharing in every play this Saturday.
"I've been to every game this season," said Rona Kay Cole, a 1996 graduate of Kilgore High. "You need to come out this Saturday afternoon to Waco Texas to support the Bulldogs!"
Players were overwhelmed at the support.
"It makes us feel special," said Keith Gilliam, running back, "knowing the whole community like this is going to support us Saturday."
