Uncommon Cuero Gobblers

The Cuero Record
Even memorable seasons have to end. This year’s Gobbler football season concluded sooner than many expected, though, especially for a team that knew they had special bond. Cuero had their work cut out for them going against one of the top offenses and possibly top passing attacks in all of 4A when facing Wimberley, falling just short, 44-36.
Despite the loss, it doesn’t dictate how truly great this season was with many accomplishments along the way.
“This is a gutty group of kids,” head coach Travis Reeve said. “We’ve talked about being uncommon men all year and not just on the football field but in all aspects of life. These kids have taken hold of that, and it hurts right now, the fact that we lost the game. When the pain goes away, our kids are going to be able to look back and be proud of what they did, not only this season but tonight.”
With adversity all around in this game for Cuero, the still put themselves in position to win until the very end.
“We just didn’t make enough plays, had a few too many things to overcome, but yet we were still right there and had a chance to win,” Reeve noted. “It just didn’t work out for us, but I’m extremely proud of our kids. They’ve had a tremendous year and done everything we’ve asked them to do. I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
