The football team played against Somerset in the first playoff game Nov. 11. The team lost 17-27 making two touchdowns and a field goal in the first half. 

Every time we get to compete and represent Lampasas in a playoff game, it is special,” athletic director Troy Rogers said. “We would have loved to win and give this school and community another week of high school football, but unfortunately, we came up short.”

The season is extended not only for the varsity team, but the JV and the freshman teams continue practicing as well. 

“Every game you get to play is useful for the development of individuals and the team,” Rogers said. “The extra week of work we got is vital to getting ahead of our opponents that did not make the playoffs.”  

Senior Aden Rascoe said he was glad to see the growth of the young team throughout the season.  

“A bunch of young guys had to step up and  come together, ” Rascoe said. “I feel like we had a lot of great moments, but I liked the Marble Falls game when we came together and stepped up in the second half and won that game.”

The football team has made it to the playoffs the past four years.

“One game, win or lose, does not define you or a program,” Rogers said. “Every game you play is an opportunity for improvement. We will continue to train with the idea that we need to be the best that we can be.  Pushing ourselves to be great teammates all the time and be ready for every opportunity that presents itself.”
