“I really think it started with Brock returning those three interceptions for touchdowns,” Beller said. “It's one thing to get three interceptions, but to get three and return them, you had to have a team effort. Even though Brock's name is next to it, that record is something that has unified us. It gave us a good feeling about what we're doing and what we're capable of doing in the games that remain ahead of us.”
Washington plays host to Mangum this Friday, and will have a bye week before facing Lindsay (5-2, 4-0) in Week 10 with the district championship on the line.
“We're close to where we want to be come playoff time,” Beller said. “So far, we've taken care of everything we've needed to in order to accomplish what we want to. I think that Lindsay looming in Week 10 definitely has our attention and keeps us focused on how good we need to be to beat them and win a district title.”
