AFTON — They were playing some “Mountain City” music on the busride back home after Johnson County “Rolled On” past Chuckey-Doak and into the second round of the TSSAA Class 3A playoffs.
In a “Feels-So-Right” performance, the Longhorns held on for a 23-20 win — marking their first playoff victory since 1988.
It took a giant size play from the smallest man on the field to secure the victory. Sophomore Alex Tressler (5-4, 140 lbs.) blocked a 26-yard field goal attempt with :09 remaining — setting off a wild celebration among the Longhorn players and fans.
