CLARENDON, TX (KFDA) - After posting an 11-2 record last season, the Clarendon Broncos are looking to get over the hump this year and take the town of Clarendon to state.
This year's team lacks the experience bolstered by last year's squad but senior offensive line Issac Dunham has stepped up to be the leader this team will need throughout their season.
"Its going to take more effort, we have to keep fighting and pushing all four quarters.", said Dunham. "We've got small number this year and hopefully we have more people come out than last year and be able to achieve more."
Playing in a small town like Clarendon benefits the Broncos who know every Friday night they can depend on their 12th man bringing the noise from the stands.
"I love Clarendon, its a small town where everybody knows each other and everybody's good friends.",said Dunham. "Last year this whole community showed effort and everything else. I like how all the building and shops shut down Friday night to come support us."
Coach Clint Conkin and his staff do their best to ensure their players are successful both on the gridiron and in life as young men.
"I love the coaches, if we're failing they make us go into the classroom and study to make sure we're on top of our grades.", said Dunham. "On the field and in the community they're always there supporting and helping us with whatever we need."
The Broncos have one goal this year and that's to make everyone in the town of Clarendon proud to be a Bronco.
"They're expecting us to go further tan we did last year and I'm expecting to go all the way to state and win it.", said Dunham.
The Broncos kick off their 2018 campaign on the road against the Lockney Longhorns.
