Now both teams will be playing for more than just a win. The district title is on the line, and the Bulldogs say they are ready to bring the district crown to Clyde.
Coach Rocky Smart said, "Every week this year, I've tried to make it and let the guys know it's a big game. That way in case we got in this position later in the season it would just be business as usual, and that's just what we've tried to emphasize the process of trying to win, and that's doing your best you can on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Just clawing and scratching to get better."
Austin Rain said, "We came into this season being the underdog. It's just something we've gone through week to week. We've worked for this, we've worked up to it, it's something that we've wanted and kept in our sights, but I mean it's just another game. We're preparing just like we would for any other game. There's a little extra pressure just because of the big title of the game. Practice we work hard every day, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday we work hard to win on Friday so it's just another week for us."
Now both Clyde and Eastland will be looking to cap off district play with an undefeated district record Friday night as they clash for the district crown.
