Gobblers learn from non-district schedule

The Cuero Record
For the first time since 2015, Cuero lost a regular season game, yet that is not the takeaway of the non-district schedule. Though it was the Gobblers’ first loss to longtime rival Yoakum since the 2014 playoffs, Cuero went 4-1 despite several key injuries.
“Our team’s made a lot of progress since we’ve started,” coach Travis Reeve said. “This team has had to overcome a lot of adversity with injuries and different lineups each week and tough opponents. When you go through adversity as a team, it inevitably either makes you stronger and closer as a team or it does the opposite. This team has gotten better every week. We’re a lot closer as a team than when we started. We certainly have a long way to go to be the team that we want to be, but from day one until now, we certainly are a better football team.”
Learning from their lone loss has already taken place over the last month leading into district, something Reeve hopes will prevent another defeat.
“Hopefully, you learn what those reasons are and do everything that you can to try to avoid putting yourself in that situation again,” he said. “There’s a lot of factors that go into winning a football game. Our team learned a lot from that loss. Like I told our kids after that game, “Let’s at least make something positive out of this loss in terms of how we move forward from here.” We can’t do anything about it now but learn from it and make sure that we use it to make us better, and I think our kids have done that.”
