"Definately, that's our motto this year. Every time we clap or break it down we say "PLAYOFFS!!!" cause that's our goal." Says Joe Striplin
The Warriors have good reason for such a lofty goal considering that returning quarterback Matt Dobson was second team all state last season and, believe it or not, he's only going into 8th grade.
"He stepped up becoming a leader. He gained about twenty pounds, got about two inches taller so we're excited about having him back this year especially after his year last year." Says Joe Striplin
"I think most people were surprised. Everyone said the numbers showed it, but it was still quite a surprise. A lot of critics out there say a 7th grader can't be that good." Says Matt Dobson
Dobson is set to continue his success in 2007 because he's got his go-to guy and 2nd team all-state wide receiver Kyle Barnwell back. Also, he has wide out Reggie walker back whose not only a threat at wide receiver, but quite dangerous at linebacker.
"I'm loving it. I like to be physical on offense. I like to be physical on defense. I feel like coach put me in a perfect position." Says Reggie Walker
Warrior fans are looking for big things from coach Striplin in his 2nd year.
