PROSSER, Wash. -- Tom Moore coached the Prosser Mustangs for more than 20 years and into a perennial powerhouse in high school football. But like they say, even good things have to come to an end.

Moore, who guided Prosser to four state titles, left this spring to be an assistant coach at Richland.

"It's definitely different," said Prosser Defensive Coordinator Doug Fassler. "The things that coach Moore established here from 1986 on still exist. All of us that were here with coach Moore, or played for coach Moore, obviously learned a ton of football from him."

"I'm happy for him," said senior defensive end Charlie Peterson. "Wherever he goes is fine with me. He'll always be a coach. I was with him my freshman year."

"He kept us going for a really long time," said senior running back Isaac Anderson. "He got us to where we are now. That was a big deal."@

Now coaches don't win games, the players executing the coach's vision do. That's where experience helps. Whether its senior tailback Isaac Anderson or senior defensive lineman Charlie Peterson, the Mustangs are hungry after last year's disappointing loss in the state quarterfinals.

"We have got to be prepared for every game now," said Peterson "We can't come in thinking we're just going to roll over everybody. Every team we go to play, we have got to look ahead, watch film, and prepare. You can't go in thinking you're just going to beat somebody."

The first challenge for Prosser is September 2nd against Kamiakin on SWX. It is a rematch from last year's season opener, when the Mustangs fell 28-0.

"I mean especially after last year where we didn't play as well," said Anderson. "I am really looking forward to this year and to get some revenge."
