John Tyler Looks To Continue Playoff-Winning Ways

John Tyler won last Saturday to advance to the second round of the playoffs.

With JT's defeat of Killeen Shoemaker, the Lions won their first playoff game in eight years.

Part of this team's motivation is knowing they were in the off season this time last year. Most players had not been in the post season.

After Saturday's win, confidence is building. 

"They always say teams still playing in November are the cream of the crop," running back Ky'Ordric Black said. "(Coach Rush) just says that everyday. So we're still playing. It feels good to keep putting the pads on day to day."

"Right now it's a do or die situation, if you lose you go home," Coach Dereck Rush said. "So there's a little more concentration in practice."

John Tyler plays Lake Highlands this Saturday at 6 p.m. in Lake Highlands.

    Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F. Austin men's basketball team fell victim to a season ago. Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.
