Guntersville, Ala. - (WHNT) For the first time since 1955, the wildcats take an undefeated record into the second round of the playoffs. Guntersville put a major emphasis and being 10-0 at seasons end, but now head coach Lance Reese is talking about a championship. "It's a big accomplishment, but the playoffs are kind of a new season so we are pleased with what we did during the regular season but now our focus is on the playoffs."
There are plenty of distractions that go along with being undefeated this late in the year. One day before their game against Ramsay, Guntersville practiced in wind chills below freezing. Many teams would pack it in and watch film with conditions like that, but the wildcat are focused on getting better.
"I think the big thing is keeping the focus on you. You're playing good people every week and you know it, but just keep doing what's been successful, Reese says. The stakes are obviously higher, but junior running back Jordan Bentley does not want to change his preparation. "It's the same thing, it's a football game. A loss would be tragic but right now we're winning so that's what we want."
And the only thing these wildcats are focused on right now, is 12-0.
