AS HANK SEMLER STOOD IN FRONT OF HIS TEAM PRIOR TO THE SEASON, IT WAS SPECIAL FOR HIM.
Looking at the Class of 2021, the first group of seniors he has seen from freshman through this year, is one that means a little extra to him. "When I first got here, these guys were at Stovall Middle School and five other schools," Semler said. "We had more as freshmen and over the years you have the battle of attrition where you'll lose some, but we have 20 seniors that have made it there. They have invested four year of their lives in Mustang football. I couldn't be prouder of them."
