Travis Reeve Discusses Gobblers’ First Trip to State Semis in Three Years

Just like their Dewitt County counterparts, the Gobblers are one win away from a trip to Dallas.

Like rival Yoakum, Cuero football punched its ticket to the state semifinals last weekend for the first time in three years. Yet despite the success his team’s enjoyed this year, head coach Travis Reeve isn’t taking anything for granted just yet.

“Like I said, it’s something that our kids have talked about and worked towards since January,” Reeve told Don Brubaker on Sunday. “This is one of the goals they’ve set for themselves, to get back to this point. And the next goal is trying to win this game and get into that final game in Dallas.”

Cuero hasn’t just been winning, they’ve been blowing the competition away. In four playoff games thus far, the Mean Green have outscored their opponents 229-55. They’ve posted forty points or more in eleven straight games overall, dating back to a September 14th contest against El Campo.

The Gobblers will play Silsbee in the 4A Division II State Semifinal at 7:30 pm on Friday. That game is set to take place at Legacy Field in Katy, with Cuero playing as the visitor.
