Howard County Players of the Week

October 31, 2012

Big Spring
The Steers have lost three straight. After a nearly flawless 5-0 start, Big Spring has yet to taste victory in District 4-3A. It appears unlikely — barring some miracle — the Steers will be making a playoff appearance. It may sound bleak, but this time last season, the Steers were winless. With that perspective, 5-3 isn’t all that bad.
