Augusta, Ga-- Cross Creek has been playing football since 1999. Not the longest tenure by any stretch of the imagination. This year though, is unlike anyother for the all the right reasons on the gridiron.
For the first time ever, the Razorbacks have been razor sharpe having won four straight to start the year. Impressive, well consider this, the team record for wins is six. With second year head coach Scott Tate on the sidelines, he's been reminding the guys, don't take anything for granted.
"One thing he tells us is to have discipline." said senior Mike Lee. "Everything is all about discipline, talent an discipline always wins games and we're keeping that mindset. At practice we bring 150 percent all the time, non stop."
"All the time, after games, before games, practice, Saturday practices, all the time, never overlook a team." added junior Keenan Grissett.
This past week, Cross Creek scored 21 fourth quarter points to knock off previously unbeaten South Effingham. These guys know there is no "I" in team.
"We're just playing as a team." added Grisseett. "Everybody's doing their job and making things work. Executing plays, the defense is playing good and flying to the ball and that's what we have to do."
Cross Creek squares off with Richmond Hill this week. Games with Washington County, Glenn Hills and Thomson are on the horizon.
