LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock Cooper Pirates went 9-2 last year but made a playoff exit in the area round.

With 7 offensive and 4 defensive starters back, Coach Max Kattwinkel hope to reach even higher gridiron goals.

"Our motto is press on. We want to continue to get better. Press On. That's our buzz word. We are going to press on and not rest on what we accomplished. We got to continue to get better and see if we can get past that second round."

Tested by Amarillo, Frenship, Clovis, Weatherford and Canyon Randall in non-district will prepare the Pirates for District 4 of Class 5A

"I think it's good for Lubbock. Coronado and Monterey moving in from Class 6A. They're not going to be phased by Lubbock Cooper I promise you. Abilene Cooper year in and year out they're good. It's good district bottom to top and we're going to have to play good football."

The Pirates open at Amarillo Friday night.
