I am so proud of our Mustangs. They have worked and played their best all season long. As I am sure that the Copperas Cove's player have. I guess the one thing that separates the Mustangs at this point is respect. Copperas Cove has respect. They are a force. They have been to the big game last year. Lamar has had to fight to earn the respect of other teams, and other coaches with every play of every game. They deserve to be in this game. We Mustangs fans will drive the 3 hours to Round Rock, many of us with their young kids in tow, and by the sound of it, we will be surrounded by the other teams fans. That's ok with us. It's going to be a David verses Goliath game.....and what a game it will be! It's too bad that no one could settle on a neutral field.
Finally a sane LC poster.
Most of us Cove fans expected to play LC last year in the championship game. It surprised us that Alamo Heights won. Of course, they beat us also, but we still feel we should have won that game.
Believe me, we have nothing but respect for LC and Rodgers. Probably one of the best running backs in the history of Texas HS football.
This is a neutral field - all 4 coaches of the teams in the semis agreed to it before the semis were even played. Granted, it's closer to Copperas Cove than Rosenberg, but last year the Alamodome was 2-1/2 hrs from Cove and 10 minutes from Alamo Heights.
