From The ECHO (Spring 2010):
"With two tough losses at the beginning of the season, the [2009 Varsity Football] Team managed to come out on top of their Region once again. After beating Hillgrove in overtime, the Jackets were ranked pretty high.
'If we take care of the little things, the big things will take care of themselves,' [Head] Coach Shakelford stated when asked how he will lead our team to victory. 'Our coaching staff is great, and our players work hard all the time,' he replied.
This year's team is filled with tremendous talent and they all have the heart to succeed and go far this year."
