Today, was the first day since Hurricane Harvey that the Aransas Pass football team was able to practice.
Not every player was there, some are not back since evacuating.
But, even with the devastation of this humble coastal bend town, it's not a feel sorry for me attitude for panther football.
"Life if hard life its tough life is going to know you down but then its your reaction to that are you going to pick yourself back up or are you going to feel sorry for yourself. In regards to wins and losses is were full steam ahead were not going to feel sorry for ourselves about the hurricane were going to be back and get after it," said Head Football Coach Ryan Knostman.
And, while the players are practicing with the glaring reminder that Hurricane Harvey still haunts, for Jordan Martin, a senior wide receiver, who lost his home in the hurricane, his senior year will be special.
"It's all how you look at it. The lord was trying to tell me something cause there was a lot of things I took for granted and everything the hurricane took from me I took for granted. So, I'm taking this as a lesson in trying no tot take anything else for granted," said Martin.
