The Longhorns haven't won a District game in over a decade, this week they look to change that statistic.

With the Longhorns winning their final home and regular season game, they take a lot of momentum going into friday’s game, the first round of districts. The Longhorns now 4-5, play Fort Zumwalt South, 6-3 who are coming off a big loss against Vianney, 63-27.

“Zumwalt South is down right now after getting pummeled by Vianney, who has a very good team this year. With that being said, Zumwalt is still a good team and we are going to have to play our best football to keep up with them,” senior Brandyn McMurry said.

The Longhorns have not won a district game in over a decade.

“With our school not winning a district football game in such a long time, this gives us motivation to go through all of our drills with extra intensity this week in practice and get the win our school is so thirsty for,” senior Bobby Connor said.

If the Longhorns are able to get the win this week they will go on to play either Parkway North 6-3 or Holt 0-9. Then from there they will play their rival Parkway Central.

“Playing Parkway Central in the final game of districts is definitely the thing this team needs to push them forward and motivate us. If we can get the two wins we need to rematch Central, I think it will be an amazing game,” senior Landon Cremeens said.

This week’s game is being play on Friday, Oct. 23, at Fort Zumwalt South, at 7 p.m.
