Blountstown Determined to Bring Home Hardware

"Our goal is to be on a charter bus going to Orlando in December," said Blountstown Football Head Coach Greg Jordan.

"It's gold medal or bust for us. Nothing short. We're tired of silver," said Blountstown's Tucker Jordan.

Both of these are quotes from July, when the team was in the thick of summer training, preparing for the regular season. This was when the disappointment of last season was still fresh in their minds but motivating them for redemption this season. 

Blountstown defeated Baker on the road on Friday 41-21 to advance to the Class 1-A State Finals. 

They will play Madison County High School. The Cowboys reside east of Tallahassee and tote a 13-0 record this season. They've beaten teams such as Florida State University - who served the Tigers their first loss of the season in Week 2 with a 35-21 final score. Madison County beat FSU in Week 3 by a score of 49-6.

The Tigers are more hungry than ever for hardware, though.

"It's weird when everybody collectively has the same goal, the same mindset. That's what we have and that can be dangerous," said Tucker.

Blountstown plays Madison County in the State Championship in Orlando on December 7th at noon CT.
