Gainesville v Giddings: Message of family at TJJD schools

Postby staff » Sun Dec 02, 2018 9:25 am

Good read: Our news-side staff went out to the Gainesville-Giddings TAPPS Div. I semifinal game in Waco, which we featured as our lead front-page story in Saturday's newspaper.

Message of family outweighs score in rare football matchup between Juvenile Justice schools

Trailing by 17 points after the first half, Giddings Indians lineman, jersey number 17, rallied his fellow players with a speech of family and brotherhood.

“We family. We got each other. We stick together and we family,” he said in the locker room at Paul Tyson Field on Friday night. “No matter what, we got each other.”

That message of togetherness overpowered the Friday night lights on the six-man football playoff field. For the first time in the history of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools’ six-man Division 1 football, the Gainesville Tornadoes of Lone Star High School North and the Giddings Indians of Lone Star High School Southeast squared off in the football division semifinals. ... 675b7.html staff

Thank you to the Waco Tribue for sharing this well written and expansive article on these young men, their coaching staff, and what football (6-man) has given them. By “given” I am referring to focus, discipline, resilience and selflessness: four qualities that are at the foundation of Football and Life. I wish Gainsville best of health and motivation this Thursday.
