Words of Coach Sean Bentz -
From the beginning of the spring in April, PCMS Pirates Football Team had the mindset of winning a Conference Championship. That was the ultimate goal! We had a great spring! They came out and worked hard all summer to get ready for August. When the students came back to school, they still had that mindset, Conference Championship! As the season went on, week by week, we got better as a team. Everything wasn't always perfect, but the kids persevered. It was that mindset, Conference Championship! They began to grow on one another and form a brotherhood. They loved, encouraged, fought, smiled, cried; they did it all, but it only kept them closer. Without a doubt, Coach Woods and Coach Cotten, along with myself, set the standard for the team, but they went out and hit it each week. The thing that allowed them to reach that goal we set in April was that each player bought into the product we were selling them. They were coachable, teachable, and trainable. Selfishness was not a part of our atmosphere. It was total team effort and total team unity. There could not be a better group of young men that deserve this more than the 46 we had on the 2016 roster. Each and every one of them take credit for that. Like Coach Cotten always says "The Team, The Team, The Team!"
