Team Of The Week: Munday Moguls

Football is king in Texas, but in small towns like Munday, that notion is especially true.

"In a small town, you have one thing that brings everybody together, and that's what football is in Munday," said Munday High School Senior football player Jake Myers.

Fans filled the stands of the high school gym Friday to get the boys pumped for the game that night. Munday CSID Superintendent Richard Dillard said the turnout was normal, because everyone in the community gets involved.

"When you've got something that is as successful as this program that your community can dedicate themselves to, everyone pitches in (and) shares in it," said Dillard. "(They) share in the success and if there's any failures, they'll share in that as well."

Even taking the exit from Hwy 277 into Munday, the first thing you're greeted with are the Mogul colors. Nearly every street in the town is decked out in purple and gold flags and streamers.

"Our community is great," said Senior football player Dee Paul. "They come to all the games, and when they see us out in public, they talk to us and they approach us and it's just amazing."

Dillard said the football team is the heartbeat of the community.

The Munday Moguls are undefeated and will try to secure a sport in the playoffs with a win against the Era Hornets Friday night.
