    JMO I would hate losing the championship game more than the week before. Personal experience when Kilgore was getting their runners up medals the year they lost to Carthage nothing feels worse than getting congratulated for getting second place 

    Exactly, you just want to get home as quick as you can and forget the whole thing for a while, but you can’t forget it.  You keep replaying that one assignment you missed or tackle you missed or catch you dropped or bad read.  You replay those negative plays over and over and over in your mind.   You don’t sleep at night because of it.  After a few weeks you start to move on, then over the years you begin to appreciate the experience and the accomplishment of what you DID do, but the loss hurts forever and will never go away.

    To be fair, it is easy to say that now.  If he goes for it, doesn’t get it, and CH scores off a turnover would you feel the same way?

    Well Kilgore couldn't break the trend of losing to CH in the 4th round hopefully CH can break theirs of losing in the 5th round. JMO I think losing the championship game would hurt more than losing the week before 

    Every kid that puts on pads in August thinks about a SC.  By the end of district many kids have resigned themselves to the fact that they will not hoist the trophy in Jerry World.  In the playoffs every week half the teams are eliminated and half the teams get closer to realizing that dream.  As you advance in each round, you want it more.  The SC transitions from a dream to viable outcome.  After round 4 you are so close you can taste it.  It’s like you can hold it in your hand, but it’s not quite yours yet.  Once you step on the field for that SC game and see and hear the atmosphere you realize that this is either going to be one of the most heartbreaking days of your life or one of the most joyful.  It feels like an eternity to walk out of the tunnel, go through all the pageantry, get the ball kicked off, and actually run onto the field to do your job.  Once you start playing you zone in on the task at hand and you don’t notice the crowd, the stadium, and you don’t really remember the prestige of what you’re playing for.  You just play.  It’s after the game is over that you either go numb with indescribable regret, sadness, and heartbreak. Or you feel a level of accomplishment and pride that is only rivaled by things like getting married or watching your child be born.

    Of all the football teams in Texas and all the kids on those teams.  If your team won the last game you ever played in, you either won a championship or your team wasn’t even a top 4 team in your district.  You see, most good teams and most kids last experience as a Texas high school football player ends with a loss.

    … So to answer your question the championship game hurts the worst, so don’t lose it.

    I'm just curious would it be a failure if Brisbon or Stewart never got the opportunity to play for a championship or win it? 

    Like I said, to date in their career I would say no.   We will see how this season plays out before we judge it.  Same for next year.   It’s fair to say it would be disappointing. It’s certainly the expectation, but is is a failure?  I don’t know yet.

    Yep number #12 should have been the starter he definitely can be our Ricky like CH has that young man is an absolute stud he runs the football at full speed and so aggressive every single carry. He also plays super smart every game I have seen of him he never gets caught up in all the mouthing and bonehead penalties I don't think I have ever seen him fumble.

    Hopefully we can groom our freshman RB to play like Ricky Stewart that's how good he is if I was a running back coach I would have my guys watch Ricky's game film. I hate we still have to play against him again next year.

    If CH doesn't win a Championship this year what's the question gonna be for next year. "If your not First" then your last will CH be remembered for having all that talent 4 years straight and never winning anything with it but some playoff games. Will it be a failure to the ch peeps? 

    I think you have to judge each game/year on its own.  

    2021 - LBJ was a disappointment. Kids, staff and community would all agree… but we had a team led by Freshmen. I would say CH had a successful season.

    2022 - No way is CH beating Boerne. They take the W 10 of 10 matchups, so I would say CH had a successful season.  

    2023 - The jury is still out. We ca revisit this around Christmas time and I’m sure opinions will be much stronger in what classify the season as successful or a failure. 
     

    past success/failure is expectations.  That’s something that CH has raised.  CH expects to win it all, bottom line.  If you come up short it doesn’t mean you failed necessarily, but it’s important to have goals that are lofty and push you past what’s easy to achieve.

    Yes, and that may have been it. Maybe CH coming out and giving to Kilgore made them say “Dang, we woke em up”. Who knows. High school kids are weird now. 

    It’s hard for kids to process sometimes, but two plays is really what made those first two scores.  Two plays, where a small correction on contain, gap responsibility, etc. can turn a 50 yard burn into a 4 yard 3rd down.

    The first SC that CH won came from a 6-4 start to the season.  Team got hot at the right time and the defense only gave up like 13 points in 6 playoff games.  

    Correction.  They gave up 20 points the entire post season with 4 shutout victories!
     

    Terrell 17-0

    Lancaster 25-0

    Dennison 16-14

    Mt. Pleasant 13-0

    Big Spring 59-6

    A&M Consolidated 14-0

    And I’m glad you mentioned that king touchdown pass in 2nd half brought back by the hold. Pay attention to #5 trying to run down the CH receiver. He looks as though he gave up around the 20 and just decided I can’t catch him. Uninspired. Not the effort they had earlier in season. Almost like they’re just tired of playing football. It happens these are kids. TCH wanted it WAY more. Hats off to them. I think the regular season loss helped TCH and hurt Kilgore. 

    Maybe CH did want it more, but I saw really good effort overall by Kilgore.  Watch their front 7 attack play after play after play.  They were playing arguably the best running duo in the state and keep them out of the end zone for 3 quarters.

    I agree 100% with that sentiment. The losses helped wake up TCH. NO DOUBT. Plus, if you think about it. No one is going to be mad if you hoist that trophy as 14-2 state champs or 15-1 state champs. If you learned from the losses and got better, then that’s all you can ask of these kids.

    I'm not even sure Kilgore made more mistakes than CH. Does anyone know the final penalty totals? Seems like CH had more. I know CH had 1 more turnover than Kilgore. Dropped a touchdown in the first half. Another long touchdown called back in the second half. If CH could play a 100% clean game......imagine the possibilities?!

    I see your point, but that’s a slippery slope, because Kilgore had some mistakes that cost them TDs too. It’s all part of the game.  Mistakes ARE the game in tight matchups.

    The loses C-Hill suffered during the season was the best thing for them. It humbled them and showed them they were not invisible. They went to work and now they are back in the semifinals. 

    Quick question. Has anyone seen the Lindale fans? I haven't heard a peek out of them since C-Hill got hot again. 

    You can’t see me!  I hate spell check.  Lol

    A colossal choke by Kilgore. They played uninspired football and TCH took advantage and advances to yet another state semis. Congrats to the blue dawgs on 3 years of state semis in a row. That’s insanely good consistency. 

    I would disagree on Kilgore choking.  Those boys played hard football. Defense gave up some early scores, but they held strong in the end.  This is a game of inches and a game where mistakes kill. Kilgore had a few more mistakes than CH, but mistakes are part of the game.  2 points is a true picture of how competitive this game really was.

    If CH is able to win this week and ultimately achieve a SC victory, it’ll be a huge credit to having to strap up against competition like Kilgore.  Part of the reason this region and this district is so consistent year after year is because there is teams like Kilgore that demand your best performance.  If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best and IMO CH beat the best team in the state last night.  Now focus and win the next one!

    Can't come out flat like last year. However, I think Boerne last year was much better than Davenport. CH will definitely have the team speed advantage. Just gotta execute. Our defense will set the tone IMO 

    Defense has hit another gear these last 4 games.  Defense gets the game ball last night in my opinion.  They made some huge stops early in the game and that interception was killer!
