MADISON COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- Madison County High School may be a far cry from the Wild West, but there's no doubt the Cowboys are all set to giddy up this weekend as they look to claim back-to-back state championships in football for the first time in school history.
On Wednesday, the school gave the Cowboys a proper sendoff: band members, cheerleaders and the student body all saw the team off as they made the trek down to Orlando.
"There's nothing like Madison County, close knit community," said Cowboys head coach Mike Coe. "They love our kids, no matter if it's football, baseball, band, it doesn't matter. Our community and our county is about young people. This is really good for our school."
The Cowboys kick off against undefeated Baker at 1 p.m. Thursday for the 1A state title.
