Two down, eight to go — that is the official count after Big Spring Head Football Coach Phillip Ritchey's bold, preseason prediction of taking the Steers from an 0-10 team to a 10-0 team in just one season.

Last week, Big Spring throttled Fort Stockton 49-0 in the season opener. The comeback continued on the new turf recently laid at Memorial Stadium on Friday as Big Spring upset Midland Christian — reigning TAPPS 4A state champions — 17-12.

Again, Ritchey was surprised at the fortitude displayed by his team.
