Garrison fans believe there's no stopping the Bulldogs now

GARRISON, TX (KTRE) – The Garrison Bulldogs football team is nestled in the tradition rich football town of Garrison in Nacogdoches County.

Coming off a huge win against the Big Sandy Wildcats, 42 – 7, there's just one win standing between them and a chance to play for the state championship.

Garrison travels to Ennis Saturday to take on the Goldthwaite Eagles.  They're hoping to advance on their 13-0 season record.  Armed with a hungry Bulldog team and fans who "believe," Coach Craten Phillips and his staff are ready to tackle a new opponent.  They play Saturday at 6pm in Ennis against Goldthwaite.  You can get game results at KTRE.com.

Garrison won its first ever state championship in 2003 when they shutout the Bangs Dragons, 27 - 0.  If they beat Goldthwaite, they'll play for the state championship the following Saturday at noon at Vernon Newsom Stadium against the winner of Mart or Canadian.

Tonight on KTRE's East Texas News at 6, Sports Director Nick James introduces us to a fan who believes there's no stopping the Bulldogs now.  Then on Friday, Nick goes one-on-one with Coach Craten as the semi-final game countdown continues.
