The Tom Bean Tomcats are back on the playoff field and are ready to try and improve on last season's four and six record in head coach Allen Cross's second year at the helm.
"It was little disappointing last season, so we're coming out here intense and looking for a better record than last year," said Wide Receiver Tanner Ellis.
The Tomcats bring back 6 starters an both sides of the ball and they'll face a tough district schedule. Even so, they believe they have a the leadership on and off the field they need to be successful.
"We have a great group of seniors that have really bought into everything we've asked them to do. They're doing a lot stuff on their own, extra time, team dinners and team meetings. It's like we have to make them go home," said head coach Allen Cross.
The Tomcats are hoping they can take the steps necessary to play that eleventh game.
"We've been waiting for this chance our entire life in high school, we're ready to get out there and play," said Nose guard Colby McKay.
