Munday Motivations

Despite an 11-3 overall record and a berth in the state quarterfinals, the Munday Moguls still have a sour taste in their mouths regarding the end of last season.

"It's been bugging us since we lost it last year," senior wide receiver/linebacker A. J. Serrato said.

One word sums up the reason for all the disappointment: Windthorst.

"Well, it's fresh, especially it means cause you lost to that team twice, pretty much in the same fashion both times," head coach Pat Corcoran said.

The Trojans gave Munday two of those three losses, and both came in blowout fashion. Windthorst won 41-12 in week eight, then ended the Moguls season with a 55-19 win in that state quarterfinal game.

"They remember," Corcoran said. "They're going to use that to become a better club this year."

Senior center/defensive tackle said the losses are motivating the players to work hard and give the extra effort at practice.

A big key to overcoming Windthorst and winning games all season long will be the play of junior quarterback Dee Paul. The dual-threat QB ran for 2,022 yards and 28 TD's, while throwing for another two.

Overall, an experienced team returns, with nine starters on offense and seven on defense back for the 2011 season.

The big matchup with Windthorst is at home in week nine, but coach Corcoran says they're taking the season, along with practice, one step at a time.

Munday's season beings at home against Stamford, another team that topped the Moguls last season,  on Thursday, Aug. 25th.
