Tidehaven seeking first win of season


Tidehaven Head Football Coach David Lucio is ready to move on from last week’s 48-6 loss to state-ranked Shiner and set his sights on this week’s contest with Danbury.

“We are just looking to move on from,” Lucio said. “We played a very talented team there in Shiner and we were not ready physically to deal with them.”

This week, Tidehaven will travel to Danbury to take on a much-improved Panthers team.

“They always play us tough even when I was a player here,” Lucio said. “Those kids in Danbury always seem to give us everything they have when we play them.”

Coming into the game, Danbury is sitting at 2-1 in non-district action while Tidehaven is still winless on the season. But everyone starts new when District 14-3A-2 begins and the Tigers can turn their whole season around starting this Friday.

“This is a huge game for us,” Lucio said. “All our games are huge from this point on really but we have to bring our A game this week.”

Lucio believes the key for a win for the Tigers remains in the fundamentals of the game.

“We have a really young team and we struggle with getting off the blocks and a lot of that is because we are physically underdeveloped,” Lucio said. 

“On the offensive side of the ball, we have to block on our feet and run hard,” Lucio said. “We are not going to beat a lot of people one on one this year because of our youth. We just have to be perfect when it comes to the fundamentals of the game in order to win.”
