Playoffs: What’s next for Gaither

Tulio Martinez

As you may know, the Gaither Cowboys football team has made it to playoffs. They have made it so far with a record of 9-1 and the next game being a playoff game. The Cowboys will now be playing the best teams in the area and, eventually, the state. 

Since their performance has been very good this season, it is expected that the Cowboys will have very good results in the future.  

The Cowboys came up first in their district and have been very happy since then. They deserve it since they’ve been working super hard to make it through to the finals. Gaither has been working for respect and they deserve it now.

“All we want is respect on our name because everyone doubts us. Our team is dangerous and we feel dangerous,” defensive end Robert Zanders said.  

The Cowboys’ last game was a 14-0 loss against the Armwood Hawks (9-2), who are ranked fifth in Florida. 

The whole season has been great for the Cowboys, as they’ve scored a total of 339 points and only allowed 133. 

In the playoffs, they will potentially play teams like Central (Miami) (7-3) or the Palmetto Tigers (8-1). They’re pretty solid teams and should not be messed around with.

There are many teams that could give Gaither a hard time like the Boca Ciega Pirates (6-4) which is their upcoming game. The Gaither Cowboys have been working very hard to get better and their results will be shown in playoffs.  

“We’re preparing everyday to get better,” guard Zac Johnson said.
