The 2012 Magnolia West football Mustangs finished the season with their third playoff appearance in a row, finishing 6-5, after fighting through a season filled with injuries to several key players.
The Mustangs season motto was "Rise Up." Little did they know that the young men would learn what that motto really meant early in the season. By the second game, they had already lost three starters to season ending knee injuries. At this point, the team found a way to push through adversity to have a winning season.
Magnolia West lost two close district ball games to Montgomery and Huntsville. These two losses made it all come down to the final regular season game against Waller. Once again, the Mustangs did what it took to make the playoffs and beat the Waller Bulldogs 41-17.
