Coach Ricklan Holmes was a freshman on John Tyler's 1994 state championship team.
Friday night, he will honor that team in his first game as the coach of Cujo.
John Tyler will play Lufkin at Rose Stadium in the Trinity Mother Frances Football Classic.
Coach Holmes told KETK why he is honoring JT's '94 state champs.
"I got to travel with them to the playoff games. I was a part of that," Holmes said.
"I was looking up to those guys," Holmes continued. "Getting to see the 16-and-0 streak they went through, I know in my heart this is what I want to do for them. I want to honor them in the first game of the season. We haven't forgotten about them. Hopefully at the end of the season we can add on to that list with the 2012 team."
