When we won the 4A Division 1 State Championship, the feeling was unforgettable. It did not feel real. Our reaction as a team when we won state was priceless. We had worked so hard all year and it finally paid off when we won our last game which was the state championship. Seeing Coach Williams’ speechless reaction to us winning state was incredible. When we were interviewed after the game he said we deserved this because we had been working toward a state title since last year when we had lost in the first round of the playoffs to Fischer Canyon Lake. This year however was a different story because we blew them out in the first round. The game coverage going into the game was unbelievable. We had news crews and media at our practices and school almost every day. The game coverage at the state game was astonishing. We played on national TV, and we even had commercial breaks. It felt like I was actually playing in the NFL. After we won state, the UIL gave plaques to the offensive and defensive players of the game. Additionally, they gave the whole team and coaches a gold medal, state t-shirt, and a state hat. We also ordered state rings to always remind us of the long journey we took and of the victories we accomplished. After we won state, the team celebrated it by going to Golden Corral. Afterwards, our hometown of Bellmead hosted a parade, pep rally, and banquet for the team. Overall, it was a fun exciting time on the road to state.
