Old Coach Friday Night Football Texas
This magazine says of the Pirates:
Lists the Pirates as the 17th best team
in class 3A statewide.
The Word: Quarterback Thomas
Krawietz ran for 1,958 yards and 24 touchdowns last
year in leading the Pirates to a 10-3 season. Krawietz,
a senior, returns to man the offense for Poth as the Pirates go into the season
with high hopes. Krawietz
is a two-way player and also had four interceptions on defense. Another
two-way player Koby Pruski
had 828 yards rushing as a full-back and 108 tackles on defense last year. Pruski
will be one of the many senior leaders on a team that is heavy on upper classmen.
Senior offensive linemen John Waclawczyk
and Marcos Guevara
were both all-district picks last year and will help hold things down in the
trenches. Junior linemen Miguel Gutierrez
and Luke Alexander are
both two-way players and will help on both sides of the line for the Pirates.
The Pirates have all the makings to make another run in the postseason, expect
them to pick up where things left off last year.
The magazine predicts the Pirates will
defeat Tidehaven, Banquete, and Dilley in the playoffs, before losing to East

2014 Notes: Coach
King says the Pirates have the experience to make another
playoff run. King
points to QB Krawietz
(36-84-4 601 yards, 8TDs passing; 215-1,958 yards, 24 TDs rushing yards), who is
a three-year starter and the district MVP, as the on-field leader. LB Pruski
(136-828 yards, 13 TDs rushing; 108 tackles) was the district's defensive MVP
and a first-team all-district FB. G Waclawczyk
is a three-year starter on the OL and DL. King
says a year's experience will also benefit FS Kelley,
a transfer, and DT Johns,
who is both played as sophomores. Yeager
started at C as a freshman, a position he had not played before. TE Kotara
should help Yeager up
front and also contribute in the passing game. Chemistry should help Poth excel
