Hats off to coach Roy Burns and the Gainseville Lone Star North staff. It was apparent that the two best teams in TAPPS D1 were competing in the state finals. For a first year 6-man program, they were well versed in the game with what I imagine was limited 6-man experience for both players and staff. They had the perennial finalists' and 6-man power house, Veritas' number in the 1st half. Most of all the players were not only explosive and fundamentally sound, but exhibited the best sportsmanship I have witnessed all season. They played a clean game exhibiting tremendous technique and discipline.

I have heard grumblings that this team was dirty, THEY WERE NOT. They merely hit hard and hit through the whistle (like any football player should). If that's not your cup of tea, sign your student athletes up for a flag league. I am so happy that the state grants these young men this opportunity as they certainly made the most of it competitively and morally. Whatever mistakes they made to bring them to Gainseville, it appears that they have overcome. Again, I imagine much of that has to do with Coach Roy and his staff. WHAT A PROGRAM!

I have also heard grumblings that both Gainseville and Giddings should not be alowed to participate in TAPPS...that is garbage! They play the game the way it supposed to be played and do so with the upmost sportsmanship and competitiveness. We have teams in TAPPS (6man) that have 40+ players on their roster. Those are the teams that should not be in our Division; not these young men who are doing the right things right now, and working to get better every day. Once again, bravo to the Gainseville Staff, Players, and everyone involved in these young mens' lives. I hope everyone on the Gainesville squad gets a chance to play football again in their lives and that they do so with the same sportsmanship, determination, and grit that they did last night.

Very Respectfully,

-Coach P

Agree with you KCMA Warrior 100%. Those young men came out and played their hearts out. They played the game with a lot more respect and class than some of the other teams that I have seen play this year. Hats off to those young men and their coaches!
