I am blessed to be able to work with the GHS Football Mustangs as their chaplain.  After a very tough year last year, new Coach Henigan and his staff has done a great job turning around the Mustangs.  Tonight we will be playing Trinity.  Both teams are coming into the game 4-0 in district play.

Here is a nice article in The Star-Telegram about the Mustangs…..

Grapevine Goes from Patsy to Playoff Contender, TOBIAS XAVIER LOPEZ

GRAPEVINE — Ian Bargsley remembers all too well when the feeling of hopelessness hit hardest.

Amid an 0-10 football season, which became a taunt for opposing fans, Bargsley gathered with his fellow Grapevine linebackers and admitted reality.

“Right in the middle of the season we were just looking at all our losses and it was like, ‘wow,’ ” said Bargsley, a senior. “The linebacking corps, we were pretty close, and we all knew.

“There was one moment when we said, ‘Guys we can only do so much.’ We can’t win the games ourselves. We just told each other we’re going to fight and play our hearts out and let the chips fall where they may.”

Those proverbial chips fell off the table and onto the floor like scraps of bad leftovers.

But today, there’s a smile on Bargsley’s face when he talks about the 4-3 Mustangs. Grapevine is 4-0 in District 5-5A and ready to face Euless Trinity (5-2, 4-0) on Friday for the district lead.
