A team of little leaguers are doing their part to make their city proud.
KTBS 3's Rick Rowe spoke with the coaches of the Bossier Nationals team.
It all started as a dream.
"We dreamed big" say the little leaguers.
One of the coaches said that "as a father and a coach it's been unbelievable for me to show them life through baseball."
On average, the Bossier Nationals hit 2-3 home runs per game and they have several boys who have hit homers in high school fields.
The coaches say that if the boys stay healthy and stay with baseball, there's no doubt they will be division one players.
Like most sports, it wasn't any one player who got the team to the state championship. The coach says that "every one of these boys was involved in a travel ball state championship one way or the other."
The coach also said that as an inspiration, he taught the boys the story of David and Goliath. He taught them the challenges of overcoming a giant because that's what he intended for them to face this year.
Coach traveled to Israel and stood in the brook of Eli where David slew Goliath. The coach took some stones and brought them back. He gave each of the coaches a stone and said that it defines their ability to tackle any obstacle that is in front of them.
"We have the talent, the players, the parents and the coaches" says Coach. "If God is willing, we should be able to pull it off."
