Football Playoffs 2014

Our mighty Trinity Tigers finished as 3A Division II District 12 tri-district champions for the first time since 1988!  Words cannot express how proud I am of Coach Smith, his coaching staff and the wonderful athletes and all the time, sweat, blood and tears {literally!} they have put in this season.  We really enjoyed following them each Friday night to cheer them on loud and proud!

Our bi district playoff game was on Friday Nov 14.  The day started with a pep rally - Owen was coaxed into talking into the microphone for the team captains!  His short and sweet message was "Go Tigers"!

Owen is fortunate to have so many great young men to look up to.  They are kind enough to let him walk through the tunnel and sit with them during pep rallies!

Manuel{#77} even lets the coaches' kids sleep on him on the bus ride after the game :)

Some of the team moms made spirit signs and displayed them so that the team could see on their way out of town.  Three of the cutest coaches' kids I know:

The team was escorted out of town by the police and fire department.  The community supported the Tigers!


My handsome coach husband pre game :)

Out of the tunnel and ready to play!

Our boys of Fall - ready to take on the Crockett Bulldogs

Jaxon, D'Andre and Owen - their coaching daddies' biggest fans!  {Notice the hats - it was freezing!!}

Head sets on, ready to roll...

The Tigers came out strong and well prepared to play.  The game was back and forth until the Bulldogs pulled ahead at the very end of the fourth quarter.

"The game of life is a lot like football.  
You have to tackle your problems, block your fears 
and score your points when you get the opportunity. "
