Dunkin' Dogs Want To Make History, Win Class 3A State Title

Reported by: Charlie Bartlett

The Dunkin' Dogs are back. They're ready to bark in the Class 3A state title game against the West Oso Bears.
 
"That sounds good to anybody right now," said Senior Guard Brent Deeb. "To be still playing basketball in March, that's what every one shoots for."
 
"It feels great," said Senior Forward Temi Ogunleye. "We've been working on it for a while now and we finally made it here."
 
"I'm cherishing every moment that I'm with this team," said Senior Guard Derrell Gibbs. "We love being together, very close team, and it's always fun."
 
For some, it's a first; the seniors, it's their last shot
 
"When I went the first time I was too caught up in my surroundings and this time I just want to stay focused on the game as much as I can," said Gibbs.
 
"We were there four years ago as freshman watching it," said Deeb. "We told ourselves this is one thing that we want to do in our four years in high school on the basketball team; we want to make it to this game."
 
But not just make it. Win it. They know it won't be easy, West Oso's in their way
 
"We're playing a real good team," said Ogunleye. "All five of their players can play. We're just ready to get after them and play our game. If our shots aren't there then we will clean up the glass and hopefully that will give us a victory."
 
" I think it's going to be a great game and we're just going to go out there, work our hardest and hustle as hard as we can like we do every game," said Gibbs.
 
"They're big, big and strong, they're athletic, but I don't think they can run 32 minutes, not like the Bulldogs," said Deeb.
 
And with all that confidence, it can be done. They want the memory as the best team to every put on a Dunkin' Dog uniform.

"We just want to be remembered so even if we don't win, we played our hearts out; that's the best we can do," said Ogunleye.

"To be a senior and have your last game of your high school career be in the state championship game, that's a indescribable feeling," said Deeb.
 
"It'd be  great," said Gibbs. "I would like to bring back a state championship for everyone that supported us, everyone on this team and the City of Burkburnett, it would be great."
