Odessa High's Ron King Proud of Bronchos Resiliency in 2013

The Bronchos battled their way through 2013, finishing 6-6 and as bi-district champions.
Coming off a 1-9 record in 2012, the Odessa High football team knew that things needed to change. The Bronchos began to believe in head coach Ron King's philosophy and to simply follow the process of getting better each and every week.

"I'm very proud of our kids. I'm very proud of how they went through the process and understanding that we had to get better every week. Even though there were times we had setbacks, the kids were very resilient. They perservered and they understood that you get knocked down but you get back up and you continue to compete, fight, and scrap. This team basically did that" said King.

OHS finished this season 6-6 overall, and 4-4 in District 2-5A where they clinched the 4th and final playoff spot after they defeated Amarillo Tascosa 30-28 the final week of the regular season. The Bronchos then went on to dominate El Paso Franklin 61-15 in the Bi-District playoffs, a game where two offensive records were broken.

Then came Arlington Martin in the Area round, and the Warriors proved to be too much to handle for Odessa High. Martin dominated from start to finish as they won 52-2 and ended the season for the Bronchos.

But this season was something to be proud of for coach King and his staff, as well as all of the players. Although they'll be losing their running back who broke the OHS single season rushing record in C.J. Eddison, they will be returning several players on both sides of the ball who now know what it is like to go through a troubling 1-9 season, as well as a hard fought, playoff appearance 6-6 season.

No matter the outcome of next season, you can expect these Bronchos to fight until the clock hits :00.
