No one for Stanton is paying attention to Forsan's 61-0 loss to Idalou and 56-0 loss to Coahoma the past two weeks.
Stanton head coach John Peterson knows when the Forsan Buffaloes get a shot at his Buffaloes, the same team that took those two losses won't be on the field. Forsan will be better than its record shows, he said.
â€śIt's a rivalry game,â€ť Peterson said. â€śWe were both in Class A together the last couple of years. I know the Forsan are going to get up to play for us.
COAHOMA â€” Coahoma has always been home for head coach Trey Gardner. When the alumnae was hired in June, he let it be known that not much had changed.
â€śSomebody when they first hired me said, 'Welcome to being a Bulldog,'â€ť he said. â€śI told them, 'I've been a Bulldog for a very, very long time.' I never quit being a Bulldog.â€ť
With that proclamation in mind, it's only fitting Gardner is the coach to get the Bulldogs back in the playoffs after two consecutive 5-5 seasons.
The Big Spring Steers have gone back to basics on their off week. No preparation for Snyder, no injuries to worry about, no pondering on the loss at Abilene Wylie, just the basics.
It's worked out well for head coach Phillip Ritchey and the Steers, too.
Ritchey said this week has given the Steers a chance to bring players from the freshman and junior varsity teams into practice, with the goal being to expose the younger players to what goes on in a varsity practice.
It's somewhat new for the Steers, Ritchey said, but something coaches want to be able to do often.
