FOX 7 Football Field Trip: Georgetown

Posted: Updated:

On the final stop on the FOX 7 Football Field Trip, FOX 7 visits the Georgetown Eagles who are coming off an appearance in the state championship game.

In 2012 the Eagles started 15-0 before losing in the 4A Division I championship game.

"[It] meant a lot to the program, it meant just building the program up," said Georgetown senior linebacker Jace Lacaille. "Coach Dean took this program from a 1-9 season back in 2009 all the way up to a 15-1 season in 2012. He's done a phenomenal job.

"To me at least making a state championship run was kind of beyond imagination," said senior offensive lineman David Vicars. "But it was pretty real at that time. And it was really fun."

"Our goal is to be a dominant program in the state of Texas," said Georgetown head coach Jason Dean. "Last year was a good step toward that. We think Georgetown football is on the rise, and we want to continue that tradition."

That will not be easy after the Eagles lost a lot of talent to graduation, including quarterback Jake Hubenak, who threw for over 4000 yards and 48 touchdowns.

"Jake was a great player, but Jake did a great job of driving the bus," Dean said. "That's what I told Jake before every game. We need a bus driver and we got two kids that are battling to get the chance to be that bus driver. They don't have to be a great player at quarterback. They just gotta get the ball to play makers."

"We as seniors, returning starters, we have to bring everybody back together," Vicars said. "Even though we lost a lot of talent, that doesn't mean we can't make another magical run like we did."
