For the Gunter Tigers, getting to the playoffs is a yearly thing, but last year's season was cut short when they fell to Scurry-Rosser in the second round.
"It definitely puts us in a place where we don't ant to be again, and the coaches they motivate us with it, and it pushes us more to not fall in the second round again," said Running Back Garrett Hunter.
The tigers are back out on the field with a team that has plenty experience.
"We've got more seniors than we normally do, I believe we have eighteen seniors. It's nice having that many guys that have played a varsity game and been through it and know what it takes to play in big games. Those are things that are definitely going to help us hopefully have a good team this year," said Gunter Head Coach Jake Fieszel.
And as always, the Tigers have set some lofty goals.
"State Championship," said Offensive Lineman Nate Yansky, when asked what those goals were.
