TAFT - In a district overshadowed by the Defending State Champion Refugio Bobcats, Taft expects to make plenty of noise. Head Coach Pete Guajardo returns 13-starters with playoff experience all grown up and expecting to pile on the victories.
"We gotta work hard and take it to them and do it best we can and we do what we gotta do and can't take no days off," said Lineman Joe Castillo.
Jestin Flores will assume quarterbacking duties, and will be joined in the backfield by running backs David Sturgeon and Trent Selby.
"Everybody is working harder than we usually have and if everybody gives it their hundred percent I think we will be ready to go," said Flores.
The Greyhounds know they won't be the biggest team in their league, but they do plan to be in the best shape, counting on their work ethic to carry them into the postseason.
"We're a little undersized compared to most teams in district but everybody gets after it and we are all on the same page trying to reach the same goal out here," said Receiver James Mendez.
