IMG_0316The Dripping Springs junior varsity and freshman teams had an explosive start to the new season Thursday, August 27, winning all four opening games against Del Valle.

The Tigers were predicted to do well against the Cardinals by head coach Galen Zimmerman, along with the rest of the coaching staff.

“The first JV game started off a little slow,” said Zimmerman. “But the last three quarters were really good.”

While the game may have started off slow, JV Gold, led by quarterback Trevor Greenman, was determined to win this important game.

“I expected us to play well,” sophomore Greenman said.

Even though the team’s personal goals had been surpassed, the coaching staff agreed that there are always things that can be further improved upon.

“Everything,” said Zimmerman. “I hope we’re not anywhere close to as good as we’re going to be.”

Improvement is a given – as well as a necessity – for these young teams, but freshman Tanner Prewitt didn’t let this fact deflate his confidence.

“It was exciting when the competition was a lot harder,” said Prewitt.

The students within this organization were all able to come together as one under this immense pressure and prove why they deserved to win these starting games.

“Anytime you win as big as they did, it’s a team effort”, Zimmerman said.
