AUSTIN (KXAN) — If the goal is to replicate the 2017 season, there’s a tall task sitting in front of McCallum football.
The Knights made history with a 14-1 record reaching the 5A State Semifinals. The run was possible behind a massive, special group of seniors.
“We talk a lot to the kids because 14-1 was special, there’s no doubt about it. For this group, we’re going to use the John Wooden definition of success and that’s going to be the best we can be. I don’t know how that’s going to translate into wins and losses but the goal is for us to be the best we can possibly be,” McCallum head coach Thomas Gammerdinger said.
Gammerdinger took over the head coaching job after Charles Taylor left for the head coaching job at Pflugerville High School.
Gammerdinger has been on the staff for several year while most of his players will be brand new.
“We’ll just have to work harder than everyone. We did lose a lot of talent, but we’ll make up for it, for sure,” McCallum senior Gabe Williams said.
