"We didn't rush for a ton of yards but we did have some success running the ball. It's been our running game going," said head coach Bob Shipley.
"But probably the brightest not was the way Chris Keesse came out and played. Over three hundred yards and five touchdowns. Four of those touchdowns to Cooper Howie; who had almost 200 yards receiving himself. When you have big games like that it's easy to put points on the board." continue Shipley.
"Winning that game really helped our confidence offensively. The game before that we didn't have much going. We only scored 14 points, and scoring 49 points helps us out a lot," said Braxton Kilgo.
"There's no doubt that after a big win like that you can work the kids a little harder, and everybody's in a little better spirits. [The players] are in a little better mood, and more optimistic. If we had lost the game we would have lost the game it would have been tough coming into a game like Wylie. Having a win just makes everything go a little bit better," says Shipley.
One of the things the Brownwood Lions are gaining from that first victory is confidence. Something they'll need to keep going against their next opponent, and perhaps the toughest of the year, Abilene Wylie.
