“Again, every win is a good win and this one is no different,” Kaufman Head Football Coach Jeramy Burleson said. “This team wasn’t as strong as the teams we played in the preseason and that is why we choose to play tough teams in the preseason. We believe it gets us ready to win the games we are supposed to win. The guys played with heart as always and executed the game plan about as well as they could have. We are proud of the guys for their effort and I am proud of the coaching staff for preparing them for victory. We are 2-0 in district, and that is the only thing that matters right now. We have a big one this week with the Terrell Tigers just up the road. It doesn’t matter how good each team is or what the records are for each team heading into this rivalry game. It is always a tough four quarters battle and we expect it to be no different this time around. We will prepare them as best we can. Our goal is to go 3-0 in District Play. Go Lions!!!
