Troy hoping to build off a big win

TROY, Texas The Troy Trojans picked up a huge win in week 8 and now they are hoping to use that as a springboard to bigger and better things. The first chance to do that comes this week against Manor New Tech.

Troy beat Rockdale last week and thrust themselves into the district championship picture this season. Head coach Ronnie Porter says that's a win that was big for is team and they got that win because of their resiliency. A quick score to start the game by Rockdale didn't discourage the Trojans. Instead they fought back and were able to win in the end.

That victory puts Troy at 2-1 in district play and leaves them just one game behind Cameron Yoe and tied for 2nd place.
