Varsity yes, but these games are the youth games and the Eagles are undefeated.

Yep he was a good one.

IMO, the 1993 Goldthwaite state championship team was the best of our four state championship teams.
They lost to San Saba at the graveyard 13-6.
San Saba didn’t even make the playoffs that year.

Just read the San Angelo's paper's report on game.


'The three latest San Saba wins -- 78-0 in 2018, 60-0 in 2019, and 64-6 this year -- represent the three most lopsided victories in the 103 games played."

OUCH!!!

San Saba’s successful season is beating Goldthwaite.
Our standards are a little higher.
