Head Coach Brian Cope who is tasked with building the program from the ground up felt a tremendous sense of pride all day leading up to the game.
“At 1:00 this afternoon we walked out of the field house and the Stampede band was there playing the fight song. Our Silver Spurs were there, our cheerleaders were there, our community was there. It’s an exciting time to be a Bronco and we were so thankful for everybody being there. Our kids were focused on the bus we had pregame meal at Hico city park and got here and our kids did an awesome job “
