Garden City-Throckmorton clash in state title game

December 10, 2010

GARDEN CITY — Garden City head coach Vance Jones remembers the last time his Bearkats lost vividly.

It was to Throckmorton in the beginning of the 2009 season and Jones remembers his players naturally being upset.

“That loss was probably our motivation to work harder to get to play them again,” Jones said. “After the game, they said ‘Coach, we can beat them.’ They worked hard and that was the driving engine that helped us get to that point and once we beat them, we said ‘Hey, maybe we have a shot to go all the way.”

“I really didn’t,” the senior said. “That’s the crazy thing about it. I didn’t even know how many. I probably thought I had 20, maybe 25.
“I guess when you’re playing to win, you don’t really care about points. You just care what’s on that scoreboard.”

Maybe it’s that mindset that has opponents taking notice of Adams.
