FOX, OK -- The Fox Foxes not only have a really cool nickname but also a darn good football team. They're coming off a 10-0 regular season, a state semi-final run and a district championship.
But that's not good enough for a program that sets the bar as high as Fox.
"What good is a district championship if you don't win the final game?" head coach Brent Phelps said.
They'll use the experience to get better for this year, with six seniors, they're going back to basics and trying to be the first team in town to win gold since 1985.
Despite making it to the final four they're not satisfied.
"The loss last year in the semis really got to us and made us work our butts off this year," senior quarterback/safety Taylor Townsend said.
Pond Creek Hunter did get the best of them, but they still made sure the Sooner State knew how good their team is. That will make their trek to December even more complicated.
"Big pressure for us. We want to leave something for the younger classmen something they can come up to. It's a big, big pressure on us," senior linebacker/guard Jerry Mitchell added.
When looking forward to making a run this year Phelps wants to make sure his players get rid of the rear view mirror looking back on 2012 and focus on what's to come.
"Let me put it this way, last year is over. These guys are built for this year and everything they do is for that first game. We're going to win that first game, plan on winning that. We're going to practice to win it and that's what we plan on and we're going to do this week by week. Last year is done and over. We can't live in the past we're living for the future and that's what they're working hard for," Phelps concluded.
