After last weeks emotional regional final win over West Orange Stark 35-28, the Silsbee Tigers are, for the second straight year, playing for the state finals in Dallas. With last years 29-24 semifinal loss to Cuero, Silsbee has yet to make the big dance but Friday night's game against Wimberly could be a program defining win for Randy Smith's squad.
"All year we've been talking to our kids about finishing what you do," said Silsbee head coach Randy Smith.
"We're a little bit more focused this year on what it is we need to do."
