MALAKOFF - The Malakoff football team has been really good over the past several years. Unfortunately, the Tigers playoff runs keep ending a little earlier than they'd like.

2 years ago, they lost in their first ever trip to the state semifinals, then last year, they were stunned in the first round of the playoffs.

This year, the Tigers are back in the state semifinals and they're hoping this dream season continues a little longer.

Malakoff junior running back Andreas Garrett says, "It's been a very special year. We all came together in the playoffs and are trying to make a run and we have so far."

This week, the Tigers will get a huge test as they take on 3rd ranked Brock.

Malakoff head coach Jaime Driskell says, "It's hard to get here, and you got to have a little luck on your side and the kids are playing hard and they have their goal and they want to reach it but we've been fortunate and they've been fighting hard everyday."

The game between Malakoff and Brock will be on Friday at The Star in Frisco...kickoff is at 4:00 PM.
