Both the eighth grade football teams battled Bailey in the fight for the City Championship.

“It is all about winning, bro,” eighth grade A-team football coach DJ Johnson said.

Eighth grade A-team finished 4-2 in regular season and 1-0 in the playoffs, beating Garcia to play in the city champs.

“We lost the first two games but we worked it out,” eighth grade football player Domingo Cervantes said.

Eighth grade B-team finished 4-1, losing to Dripping Springs in the playoffs 1-0.

“It felt pretty good,” eighth grade football player Gordon Twedt said.

Eighth grade football team switched to Austin High’s playbook.

“Hardest thing is adapting to the new playbook,” eighth grade B-team coach Bill Kernan said.

The eighth grade B-team won their first City Championship this year.

“It was a pretty good game,” eighth grade football player Andrew Garcia said.

Kernan won his first ever City Championship here at Small.

“It felt really good; I was proud of my team,” Kernan said.

The eighth grade B-team also brought home the City Championship.

“It felt pretty good after A-team lost it last year,” eighth grader Tevin Wooten said.
