Two-a-Days Kick Off For Many Local Texas High Schools

GRAYSON, CO ---- The sounds of Fall could be heard throughout much of Grayson County today; from hands clapping to helmets hitting, it's officially football season.

"I couldn't sleep last night. I was just ready to get up and come out here with all of my friends and just fly around," Whitewright senior linebacker/offensive lineman Ruben Cano said.

"It's always exciting. I always say, other than some big wins during the season if you have any, the first day of practice is always the most exciting," Van Alstyne head coach Mikeal Miller said.

Even though it is only the first day, expectations for this upcoming season are already set.

"Our goal is to make history here. The furthest we've gotten is fourth round, were going for fifth round, going to State. That's our goal, is to go to State and win," Gunter senior, running back/safety Garrett Hunter said.

"I hope we win that State championship. We haven't had one and it would be great to leave Howe with a State Championship," Howe senior quarterback/linebacker, Joaquin Lopez said.

With gold ball trophies and championship banners on their minds, these teams are counting down to week one.

"I'm just ready to get out on the field and start playing football again," Tom Bean senior right tackle/defensive end Bret Shields said.
