The cream continues to rise to the top in the high school football playoffs, as the state's best teams continue their march towards a state championship. One area high school football team is already playing for a spot in the state semifinals. The TK Gorman Crusaders charged into the post season with a win over Arlington Pantego last week. They're out to prove they are much better than their 5-5 regular season record. They'll get that chance Friday in regionals, taking on defending state champ Waco Reicher.
"They are a pretty good team," said TK Gorman head coach John Nashe. "Offensively, they like to run the ball in running formations and pass the ball in passing formations, so as long as we be true to our keys, play good and wrap up, anything can happen."
"They're good," added senior captain David Stenklyft. "They're fast. They're strong. But, we are too. We feel like we can beat anybody. We can hang with anyone."
The Crusaders play Waco Reicher Friday at Bruce Field in Athens at 7:30.
