SEMINOLE â€” Every local football fan knows Big Spring has talent. From Tobyn Tannehill's gunslinging to Devin Roberson's versatility to Hunter Hill's explosive rushing, the Steers have proven they can put a lot of points on the board in short order.
Friday, Big Spring â€” now 4-1 â€” victimized Seminole (2-3) 45-14 after a dominant second half shut the Indians down in front of their home crowd at Wigwam Stadium.
BALLINGER â€” After four straight losses, the Bulldogs were able to hold their heads up high Friday after defeating Ballinger 22-13.
A team which is as young as a varsity team gets, Coahoma (1-4) used Head Coach Trey Gardner's Wing-T formation, ran the ball and played bend-but-don't-break defense to come out on top on the road â€” a momentous psychological boost, Gardner believes.
FORSAN â€” In their third straight game against a 2A opponent, the Class A Buffaloes (2-3) and Head Coach Jason Phillips is ready play a team in their division. Most recently, it was Crane who blasted Forsan 43-2 Friday.
Already dealing with injuries, the Buffs sustained even more against the undefeated Cranes, who boasted not only a depth advantage, but a size advantage over the smaller school.
Despite the lopsided score, Phillips saw a few good things from his ailing squad.
