Win or go home, that is the situation the Laredo Heat find themselves in entering tomorrow nights regular season finale in Houston.
In their 10th season of play, the Hear have an impressive streak of having never missed the playoffs, but all that could end tomorrow night.
"No pressure on us right. We really need to keep it going. I mean it's important to us the players and owners."
"This is a special year for the Laredo Heat, we've competed for ten years now. This game on Saturday is our final. We have to win."
Just last week things looked grim for the Heat, needing some help from others, while also picking up wins along the way and that's just what happened. Laredo came up with a sweep of Mississippi here in town, while Austin and Midland tied, opening the door for the Heat.
"We gotta play with discipline the whole game and we just gotta play 100% like we did here against Mississippi. It would have been hard if we would have had to rely on someone else like we almost had to. The fact that we have it in our hands is a bonus."
Now as they enter Saturday's do or die situation, there are no more excuses and the Heat are confident they will come out on top.
"We have to win, we have to represent the city and represent the fans because they supported us."
"All in all, we're coming together at the right time because I feel like this is the time to start playing well as we go into the playoffs. We just need that one win to take us all the way."
Some good news for the Heat is they have yet to lose to Houston, going 1-0-1 against the Dutch Lions so far this season.
