CUMBY – Hard work pays off. Or at least it has for the Cumby Trojan football team this season. The Trojans have jumped 46 slots on the Harris Ratings Poll since week 0 to their current position of 89.
“For a brief moment, it is nice to see that our hard work is paying off as far as the polls are concerned, but it can be a double-edged sword that can get you into trouble,” said Cumby Trojan head football coach Ed Perez. “We have to focus every week to play and can’t fall into a trap of getting involved in all the predictions and such—bottom line is you still have to line up and play ball.”
