COAHOMA â Enrollment at Coahoma public schools is pretty much where officials expected it to be â and that's good news.

The Big Spring Steers donât play horrible defense. In some cases, theyâre far from it.
But to first-year head coach Cliff Thompson, they can never be too good on the defensive side of the ball.
Thatâs one focus â among many â for the Steers as their third home game this season approaches. Thompson said the focus is starting to shift toward what the Steers have to do to get ready for District 5-3A play in January and at the top of his list is defense.
COAHOMA â As Pete Acosta was trying to recall how many people have congratulated him on his selection to the 2010 Class 2A All-State Football team, another bystander shouted his name from afar, hoping to do the same.
Safe to say Coahoma is proud of what the senior has done.
Acosta was named second team all-state by the Texas Associated Press Sports Editors with three other defensive backs. He wasnât the only Bulldog on the list, either. Josh Castilaw earned honorable mention as an offensive lineman.
