FORSAN â€” School officials here are waiting to see if recent efforts to â€śgo greenâ€ť â€” become more energy efficient â€” will help the district â€śsee greenâ€ť â€” in other words, save money.
For more than a year, Forsan Independent School District crews have been installing systems designed to make campus buildings more energy efficient. Those steps ranged from installing light bulbs that use less energy to using motion detection sensors which allow lights to dim when spaces are not being occupied.
Grady (7-1, 2-0 in district play)
at Borden County (7-1, 2-0)
LENORAH â€” Grady is fresh off one of the biggest wins of the season when the Wildcats took Sands down 48-30 last week.
Now the Wildcats have the chance to make an even bigger statement with a win over Borden County and a strong grip on the district with Sands and Borden County play next week.
Joe Cook's 12 rushes for 83 yards and one score helped Grady get the win over Sands. Cook, quarterback Shane Teague and Jake Rodriguez hope to continue being catalysts for the Wildcats.
Rankin (2-6, 1-0)
at Garden City (8-0, 1-0)
No one for Stanton is paying attention to the 61-0 loss to Idalou and 56-0 loss to Coahoma for Forsan the last two weeks.
Stanton head coach John Peterson knows when the Forsan Buffaloes get a shot at his Buffaloes, the same team that took those two losses won't be on the field. Forsan will be better.
â€śIt's a rivalry game,â€ť Peterson said. â€śWe were both in Class A together the last couple of years. I know the Forsan are going to get up to play for us.
COAHOMA â€” Coahoma has always been home for head coach Trey Gardner. When the alumnae was hired in June, he let it be known that much never changed.
â€śSomebody when they first hired me said, 'Welcome to being a Bulldog,'â€ť he said. â€śI told them, 'I've been a Bulldog for a very, very long time.' I never quit being a Bulldog.â€ť
With that proclamation in mind, it's only fitting Gardner is the coach to get the Bulldogs back in the playoffs after two consecutive 5-5 seasons.
