2004 Boerne High School Football Team
The 2004 Boerne High School football team is considered one of the most successful teams in Boerne history, having reached the State Semifinals that season. Coached by Tommy Bludau, the Greyhounds went 12-2 during the memorable 2004 campaign, winning the District, Bi-District and Regional Championships, before falling to Marshall 21-3 in the State Semifinals.
“The 2004 team was just a great bunch of kids, and I’m proud of them all,” Coach Bludau said. “They were a very unselfish team. Everyone did their job. We had great leaders and had a tremendous senior class. There were so many of them that took us to the next level. This was an outstanding group of kids, and I thoroughly enjoyed this team,” said Coach Bludau.
In the 2004 Regional Finals the Greyhounds defeated Harlandale, in a game which Coach Bludau said sticks out to him from that season. “The regional final game in the Alamodome was so memorable. Harlandale was a great team and did things to beat you,” Coach Bludau said. “Our kids really responded well in that game. I was proud of our effort, our kids did a tremendous job to compete that day. I am so proud of them,” Coach Bludau said.
