Buccaneer pride continues with the Roy Miller High School football team. They are now 12-0 and are headed to the next round of the playoffs.

The team just defeated San Antonio Southwest.

However, before the team took off the school came together for a big send-off.

We previously reported about how an alum stepped in to provide a way of transportation so many could cheer on the Bucs in San Antonio.

All the bus seats were taken by fans who say they wouldn't miss this moment.

Before this record breaking team could hit the road to San Antonio, the school came together, filled the hallways, and watched these players board the bus.

Some say they have never experienced anything like this.

“We traveled before with the team but in order for us to go and perform at the Alamodome with them it's truly something great for us to accomplish,” says Miller High band member Sebastian Ortiz.

And as one bus fills, so does two more. Family, fans, and alumni met at the Buccaneer Stadium to travel to the Alamodome in support of these players.

“I really don't like to drive to San Antonio anymore you know the traffic, but I would find a way to go,” says Esmeralda Mendez who graduated from Miller High School back in 1971.

Fans also add that they have seen so much change over the years especially on the Westside. They say this special moment brought everyone together.

“These kids have worked very hard, they have very supporting families and friends and the community is always behind them, and it doesn't matter what side of the city you live in it's just the type of person you are and our boys are proving that it doesn't matter what side they are there number one,” says supporter Terry Benavides.
