History Making Cardinals
Southside 29-5A District Champs!
(Floresville, TX)- After coming back from a 21-0 deficit at the end of the first quarter against Floresville HS on Friday, November 10th, the Southside HS Cardinals rallied for one of their biggest wins in Southside history. Head Coach Ricky Lock says, “It’s a huge win for us, to be outright district champs for the first time. We were co-champs in 1992. Feels good not to share the title with anyone this time.
Head Coach Ricky Lock credits the win to the players fighting through adversity. “And believing they could win.” Lock says, “I just told them, ‘one play at a time.’ And, we just fought our way back in.”
Congratulations to Southside HS for the 36-28 win.
