Today, was the first day since Hurricane Harvey that Aransas Pass football was able to practice. The team reminds everyone that football is a not a guarantee or something to be taken for granted.
Not every player was there.. Some players are not yet back since evacuating, so the full team wasn't on the field but the players that were able to show up, certainly weren't just going through the motions. Even with the devastation of their humble Coastal Bend town, the panthers have every intention of playing a full season.
The coaches tell us, they often teach about hardships and now they are putting those lessons to use.
"You know life is not fair, it's gonna be hard and it's how you respond to it, I mean those are the lessons we try to teach with the game of football, life is hard, life is tough, life is gonna knock you down, but then it's your reaction to that. Are you gonna pick yourself back up? Or are you going to feel sorry for yourself," head coach and Athletic Director for Aransas Pass said.
The team hopes to open up next week versus Taft.
