TVCC The Favorite In Southwest JuCo Football

Flashing cameras and a slew of microphones greeted coaches in Athens Thursday for the Southwest Junior College Conference media day.

But the spotlight shined extra bright on Trinity Valley.

The preseason rankings put the Cardinals at second in the nation and the favorite in the conference.

"The way they responded to the success last year, I didn't have to tell them what was at stake," said Cardinals Head Coach Mike Sartain. "I don't have to remind them of their opportunities. They have been working very hard, we had a great spring. First spring that I can remember in my coaching career that I didn't have to coach effort."

Cardinals open their season against Garden City at home August 26th.
