ROCKDALE TIGER HEAD COACH JEFF MILLER SAYS

THE TIGERS ARE IN A STRONG POSITION HEADED INTO THIS

3 GAME STRETCH…

“OBVIOUSLY, OUR GOAL RIGHT NOW IS TO GO

3 AND 0 OVER THE NEXT 3 WEEKS. I THINK 2 AND 1 WOULD

BE PRETTY DARN GOOD. BUT I THINK ON PAPER, WE’RE

AS GOOD AS ANYBODY IN OUR DISTRICT, AND WE’RE

REALLY PLAYING WELL RIGHT NOW. WE’RE PLAYING WITH

A LOT OF CONFIDENCE.”

EASTSIDE IS CURRENTLY WINLESS ON THE SEASON.

TAYLOR DUCK HEAD COACH RUSTY PURSER SAYS

EASTSIDE HAS TALENT AND THEY’RE HUNGRY, SO THE DUCKS

HAVE TO BE ON TOP OF THEIR GAME…

“THEY’VE GOT A GROUP OF KIDS THAT ARE REALLY

YOUNG, AGAIN. THEY’VE GOT FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES

THAT ARE PLAYING FOR THEM FOR THE MOST PART, THAT

YOU CAN TELL WANT TO HAVE SOME SUCCESS. SO, YOU

KNOW FOR US, IT’S NOT FALLING INTO THE TRAP OF

BEING UNFOCUSED. AND THAT’S SOMETHING WE’VE TALKED
