Remembering the playoffs

Remembering the playoffs

The 2016 Forrest City Mustang football team poses for a group photo Wednesday wearing their new T-shirts commemorating the first-round state playoff victory over Greenbrier in November. The victory ended a 41-year, first-round state playoff losing streak for Forrest City. Before the win over Greenbrier, the last Forrest City Mustang football team to win a first-round state playoff game came in 1975. The front of the T-shirts reads “Mustang Pride” while the back of the T-shirts has the date of the playoff win and the final 60-34 score above the number “41 Years” as well as the words “A New Beginning.” Coach Rich Trail handed out the shirts to the players and then treated the team to pizza.
