Football Coach Terry Pirtle has experience in the state playoffs and hopes to secure a win with the Second Baptist School Eagles.
When Pirtle was coaching at The Brook Hill School, the program had competed in back-to-back state title games but had fallen short. At their third state title game, they won it all.
As Second Baptist School eyes its third straight TAPPS Division II State Semifinal appearance this weekend, Pirtle relives his past experiences in the hopes that SBS can pull off the state title this year.
"Now there's a sense of urgency to get it done," Pirtle said in a phone interview. "It's a different feeling this year. We deserve to be here, we're good enough to be here and we want to compete well in this game."
Welcome to the 2020 football season. What a weird offseason it was for everyone. There was not a summer camp circuit for player to go showcase their talents at. In-person recruiting came to a screeching halt and the COVID-19 Pandemic has affected everyone.
