After a 6 and 5 season and a first round playoff loss the goal is simple for the Haughton football team.
We want to make the playoffs. That's a big deal, but we want to advance in the playoffs too. Try to advance in our league. Our league is real good.
Real good is an understatement. The Buccaneers play in a district with two teams who played for state championships last season.
Every week is a battle
We enjoy that it's a fun district, big games every week.
The plan is for those big games to translate into success in the playoffs.
You come out of the toughest district you're used to the tough games every week.
The key to this seasons success will come on the offensive side of the ball, as the Buccaneers sport a high octane offense.
Explosive would definitely be a word I would use to describe it.
We like to do a little bit of everything. Will is a very good dual threat quarterback. He can do it all.
The offense is led by two division one commits Quarterback Will Haines and Wide Receiver Jevonte Woods. They've been playing together for nearly 10 years now.
We've been best friends since preschool. We always had a great relationship.
Those relationships run deeper than just between the players. The players feel a bond that can't be broken with coach Guin.
He treats us like we're his sons, all 90 of us. It's a great feeling having such a great coach. You look up to him kind of like a dad.
It's this family mentality that could push this team to the top of the district standings.
