2015 Lions football team making school history
Advancing further than any other Lion team
Wednesday, November 25, 2015 - BY STEVE MASSEY
LION MYRON BUSBY would not be denied a touchdown on this second quarter play to give the Lions an early 13-3 lead in the second quarter of last Friday night’s Area play-off game against Rockdale. The Lions won the game 60-24 and are one of sixteen remaining 3A Division 1 teams in the hunt for a state championship.
The 2015 Teague Lion football team has gone further in the state play-offs this year than any other Teague Lion football team before them, and there’s been a bunch of them.
The Lions will step onto the field this Friday night in Midlothian as the Number 1 ranked team in 3A Division I Texas football and what they do once the game begins is simply fantastic.
This far into the play-offs all the teams are good and the Lions will be playing the #7 ranked West Trojans (11-1), who also play some pretty good football. So if you want to see something really special, make the trip to Midlothian for a great game.
Teague and West are two of sixteen teams remaining in 3A Division 1 seeking a state championship and my money is on the Lions!
“We’ve just got to do what we do,” says second year THS Athletic Director/Head Coach Donnie Osborn about his upcoming game. “If we play well on the offensive and defensive line of scrimmage, win the line of scrimmage and keep taking care of the football, everything else falls into place and we can play with anybody.”
Osborn says there wasn’t a lot of hype this year about the Lions like there was last year. “But the cool thing is that the coaches and this group of young men knew that we had a chance to be better than last year’s team. We knew it, nobody else did”...More →
