They say losing isn't really losing if you learn something from it.
And for Harris County Football, that's exactly what they're doing.
"Well you know as a team, and as a coaching staff, we've grown," said Coach Tommy Parks.
"We've kind of shyed away from that team worried about individual stats, and we've come full circle with what it takes to be a team."
"I think we've bounced back really well," said Senior Linebacker Hunter Paddock. "We started out 0-4 against some tough teams, and came in against Douglas Co, had a big win, the team came together a lot better."
"You know I think that those losses humble you," said Coach Parks. "And our kids have been humbled a little bit, our coaches have been humbled, and we've worked back through some adversity. And it's paid off for us so far."
After that rough 0-4 start, the Tigers bouncing back with two straight wins.
But the pressure's still on. The remainder of Harris County's games are all region games.
"It's real crucial," said Senior Defensive End Jay Ellison. "We're trying to win every game. We want to be the top seed if we can, and try to make it."
"Every game is crucial at this point," said Coach Parks. "I mean with the parity in this region, there's a lot of good football teams, lot of good coaches lot of good players."
"They're very crucial," said Paddock. "We have to win a few games to make the playoffs, and we're really depending on that this year. The Seniors mad the playoffs our Freshman year, so it's a big deal for us. "
