CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The countdown continues as the high school football regular season starts two weeks from tonight for the majority of Coastal Bend teams.

Over at Tuloso-Midway, despite recent struggles the Warriors are always optimistic.

Coach Wade Miller is beginning his third season at T-M.

And after throwing the ball a lot during his first two seasons, he’s bringing back the run game this fall. Miller says he has some great offensive lineman who can help open up some big holes for the running backs.

Again, the Warriors have struggled to win games, but the players are hoping this is finally the year they turn it around.

“There's multiple different reasons why every team struggles,” Tuloso-Midway running back/defensive back Brendan Baham said. “Downfalls and rises, you never really know but I can't pinpoint exactly regarding our recent struggles. But, I know me personally, I have a better feeling going into this season due to leadership and character that we have on the team.”

Miller says experience is the biggest reason he has confidence this team will improve in 2019.

“We gotta improve,” he said. “We were only in one game my first year and we were behind double digits at halftime and last year we were in a a lot of games at halftime but it seemed like the second half is when we had our issues.

“So, we are hoping our conditioning level and strength along with maturity helps. We have 34 seniors so hopefully, we can stay in ballgames in the second half and win some of them.”

We wish Coach Miller and his team the very best this season.

They will open their season two weeks from tonight on the road at Kingsville.
