Currently standing at 2-1, the Fighting Farmers believe they’re showing great improvement from last year’s disappointing final record of 2-8. The drastic improvement from last year’s scores has pleasantly surprised fans of the team along with the players themselves.

“Last year, nobody thought we would be this team,” junior Lester Thigpen said. “They thought we would be a 2-8 team again, but we actually got better this year.”

With a current winning streak of two, the Farmers have enjoyed their success as they move closer to the more crucial district games. They aim to continue the winning streak through the home game against Flower Mound High School on Friday, Sept. 28 at 7 p.m.

“The first loss was tough, but we won a close game the second week and we won an easy game the third week,” assistant head coach Ross Hasten said. “We played well. We’re off to a good start going into district.”

The Farmers have grown as a team in numerous ways throughout the summer, including tightening their bond off the field. This increase in chemistry among the teammates from last year’s season is evident and shines through in the way the players work together on the field.

“This year’s team has had the best bond together as one,” senior Kevin Anderson said. “We’re more united than the past years. I think that’s reflecting on our record.”

Despite the positive outlook the record has given so far, the coaching staff and players are still looking to improve even further in order to do well in district and potentially at the playoffs.

“There’s always room for improvement,” Hasten said. “We’re always trying to improve; that’s the thing about football, [we see] the little things and we try to get better at them.”
