Head Coach Monty Stumbaugh said his team is not the bigger team, but they will be the team that lines up properly and stays focused throughout the game.
“We can’t emulate their size in practice, but we can focus on our assignments to be the more disciplined team,” Stumbaugh said.
Superintendent Lisa Garcia said she could not be more proud of the team and their efforts. She said the town has been painted blue and the light house was illuminated with a blue hue in support of the team.
“We have Tarpon fever all throughout the area,” Garcia said.
A pep-rally will be held at Tarpon Stadium Friday at 7 p.m. and the Tarpon send-off will be Saturday at 11 a.m. with car decorating at 10:30 a.m.
The team has also been named grand marshal for the South Padre Island Christmas Parade on December 13, honoring them for their hard work this season.
