CHARMCO (WVVA) - Greenbrier West has been able to build up quite a football program in the last decade – becoming mainstays in the postseason, but having yet to grab a state title.

Heading into the 2013 season, the team says they won't accept anything less than that crown this year.

"We've gone 10-0, we've made it to the playoffs every year as a senior class. So we want to make that next jump, win that state championship," said senior Corey Cox.

 With a wealth of experience returning the Cavaliers say they've learned from their mistakes in the postseason the last few years.

 "Can't turn the ball over, that's really what stopped us. Ourselves," said Chase McClung. "Nobody's stopped us but ourselves. I think if we take care of the ball and do what we're taught, we shouldn't have any problems."

 The squad returns most of their offense from last season, when they averaged more than 37 points per game behind dynamic quarterback Malik Boatwright.

 "I feel like we're all going to work as a team," Boatwright said of the upcoming campaign. " They'll give me confidence, they'll pump me up. And I'll do the same for them."
