It was obvious from the sidelines that West Point is happy where they are right now.
After a perfect 4-0 start in district play, who wouldnâ€™t be?
The Green Wave scored 47 unanswered points Friday night, on their way to convincing 47-7 win over Saltillo to remain atop the district standings and move to 5-3 on the season.
â€śWe played hard, weâ€™re improving everyday,â€ť West Point head coach Chris Chambless said after the Green Wave earned their fourth consecutive win. â€śWe just go to get to that point where we make zero mistakes, we donâ€™t miss any blocks or any tackles.â€ť
A 4-3 record may not seem like much to most on paper, but for Hebron Christian, Friday nightâ€™s 24-6 win over Calhoun Academy made a clear statement the Eagles football program is headed in the right direction.
Head coach Tri Nason talked all week about the importance in having a winning season, and the players bought into it.
â€śOne hundred percent,â€ť he said. â€śI count this season as a success even though we are 4-3. We could easily be 6-1. And on top of that we did what most people said what we wouldnâ€™t do and that was win more than a couple of games.â€ť
