As someone who grew up in a small town in northwest Texas, this video really warmed my heart. Cities across the country support their local teams when it comes to high school athletics, but there’s just something about small towns and the passion they have for their teams.

And it was on full display when the Lady Hounds departed little ol’ Gruver on their way to compete for a state title.

Seriously – I got goosebumps watching those cowboys give the girls a sendoff for the ages. And I’ll go ahead and admit that I damn near got emotional upon hearing the excitement in those girls’ voices when they saw those riders waiting for them outside of town.

Thankfully, one of the people commenting on the video on Twitter shared a tribute video of the state-bound Lady Hounds, giving us some cool drone footage of the parade and the following sendoff so that we can get a good look at just how passionate Gruver is about their sports.

I wish the best of luck to the Lady Hounds in their pursuit of a state championship.
