PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -
In just four days, Pascagoula will take on Starkville in the Class 5A high school football championship game. If Pascagoula wins, this will be the team's first state championship in 25 years. The students and staff are excited about the big game and ready for their team to bring home a win.
From cheers to colorful homemade signs, Panther pride could be felt all over Pascagoula high as excitement builds up for the big game.
"This is something that our team has worked hard for. We set a goal that we wanted to play in the first Saturday in December and we fulfilled that goal," football player Grant Warren said.
It's a goal quarterback Stacey Warren said they haven't reached just yet. Twenty-five years ago his dad was on Pascagoula High's champion team and he wants to bring home another win for this town.
"The best man will win and hopefully that is us. It is going to be a big fight," Quarterback Stacey Warren said.
Fans Julia Hatten and Ja'Lexis Lewis are already planning to be at the game to motivate the team.
"It is just gives us hope and happiness. We are actually going to the championship game and we have a chance of winning," said student Julia Hatten said.
"We are not able to get a hotel at the moment, because all of them are booked up right now. But I will be purchasing my ticket to be at the game," said student Ja'Lexis Lewis.
The game tickets are going pretty fast. In just three hours, 63 tickets were sold and the district is expecting to sell out.
"Most people are buying four or more at a time, and we are going to have a good crowd there," Athletic Coordinator Danelle Webber said. "It is not every day that these kids go to a state championship game.
The Pascagoula Panther's coach couldn't agree more. He said win or lose, this panther team has had a picture perfect season.
"Our goal is maintain our focus and do what we do every day," Coach Lewis Sims said
Pascagoula will play Starkville at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium in Jackson at 7 p.m. Saturday night.
