We Have a Winner, PG Takes Kicker Cup City Championship
The Pleasant Grove Hawks are this years Kicker Cup City Champions of football.
The Hawks were wire to wire winners this year, never trailing or even tied at any point. PG took the lead in Game 1 with a big win over Arkansas High and never looked back.
The Hawks eliminated defending champion Texas High with their victory over Pittsburgh last Friday, which extended PG to an 8-0 record, with just two regular season games left.
The coaches and players will be awarded the trophy at their first playoff pep rally in November.
The Kicker Cup is a huge traveling trophy that is awarded each year to the Texarkana high school football team that finishes the regular season with the best overall record. In case of ties, head to head match ups and point differentials are used
The Kicker Cup City Championship now in its 22nd year began in 1996. Thanks to Rogers Trophy and Signs that donated the trophy so many years ago, and continues to engrave the winning teams name each year. Also thanks to our Kicker Cup sponsor Red River Federal Credit Union.
Congratulations to Pleasant Grove Head Football Coach Josh Gibson, his staff and players on winning the Kicker Cup City Championship and being pronounced "The Best high School Football Team in Texarkana for 2017."
The trophy will reside at Pleasant Grove until the season begins next fall, when once again all four teams will vie for the City Championship.
