(WDAY Sports) - It's been a strange year for the Hillsboro high school football team. The Burros won their first ever State Title last year, and graduated a bunch of seniors.

The young squad took another hit when three top line starters were suspended for the first 2 games. They lost both, but now Mark Rerick's team has won 5 straight.

“We've been such an old team for a few years now and then we come in this august and we're just ridiculously young and mentally, emotionally, and physically we just needed to grow up and that's kind of what we're seeing here.”

“This year we have to work more as a team more together, communicate better and we have to do more things perfect this year, last year we were able to get away with a few mistakes and this year we can't really.”

The Burros host Finley-Sharon-Hope-Page tomorrow.
