Rudy Garcia's guys capped off an undefeated season a year ago with a Class 6A state championship against the Edmond Memorial Bulldogs, 37-36. The Redskins were #1 in the state, the Bulldogs were #2.
If they are going to repeat again in 2013 they've have to go through this years #1 team in Class 6A, the Putnam City Pirates.
It's been somewhat of a rebuilding year for the Redskins who are ranked 12th in the state with a record of 16-9. This team has some very talented juniors, but Union isn't looking toward next season. They would like to win three more and capture another gold ball.
Union and the 25-2 Putnam City Pirates play the late game Thursday night at the Mabee Center. The Redskins are schedule to tip-off at 8:30pm.
