Gobblers head to Bi-District playoff round
By Jacob Cuellar

“We’ve come a long way but we can’t be satisfied with this season because it’s the next one that means the most. We’re looking forward the making it all the way this year,” stated starting quarterback Jerry Rossett.
Finishing up the regular season, the Cuero Gobblers walked away with another victory against the Gonzales Apaches, 51-6, bringing their record to 9-1.
Scoring four touchdowns in the first quarter, this team shows no complacency especially after being labeled district champions.
Adding to Friday night’s win is Athletic Director and head coach Jack Alvarez, “We got to go forward, and we just got to keep playing our game. We’ve earned another season; I’m proud of the kids, I’m proud of defense, and I’m proud of the offense. To me our defense played lights out tonight and I thought we played a good game overall. We did get a little sloppy but sometimes when you’ve got a good team, they get ahead, they get sloppy, then they find the little things and try to fix them every week. Like I said, I’m proud of the kid’s overall offense, defense, and special teams. I think we have grown by leaps and bounds every week. Hopefully we keep growing.”
As always there is room for improvement and beginning playoffs it is crucial for the gobblers to dial in correcting any mistakes from previous games. Failure to correct these errors could result in the end of Cuero’s football season. That is exactly what quarter back Jerry Rossett had to say as well, “We’re doing great right now, the line is doing great, but we can improve and get better. We need to take that next step to just improve and get ready.”
