Forsan not overlooking Anson

October 6, 2011

For the surging Forsan Buffaloes, seeing an 0-6 Anson Tigers team on their schedule for this week's game must seem too good to be true. Head Coach Jason Phillips says his team has been warned to pay no attention to the big goose egg on Anson's record.

“We have told the team all week not to look at their record,” Coach Phillips said. “They have played some close games and their talent is better than that of an 0-6 team.”

October 6, 2011

“Everything comes down to this time of the year,” Coach Ritchey said. “Starting right now, the games count. We learned a lot of lessons over the stretch of the last six weeks. Now it's time to make the best out of them.”
