With a rich history of winning games, including five TAPPS 1-A six-man titles since 2004, the Heritage School football team is approaching the upcoming season with “a lot of excitement,” according to head coach Tim Shipman.
And it’s easy to understand such enthusiasm. After all, returning are four of six Eagle starters from last year’s squad that finished second in the state, dropping the title to District 4 rival Seguin Lifegate in December 2012.
“We are hungry for more,” Shipman said, adding, “We are bringing in a strong experienced freshman class.”
Also, with the addition of permanent stadium lights on the field this year, the Heritage mentor added that “no pun intended, but the future looks bright.”
Despite the rosy outlook on paper, the Eagles are taking nothing for granted this year and realize that they must earn every victory in 2013, Shipman said.
