Even before Big Spring-Snyder kicks off at 7:30 p.m. today at Memorial Stadium, the Steers are down 13-0.
They have to come out swinging, no question about. That is, if Big Spring wants a playoff spot.
There are other scenarios that would allow the Steers to clinch a playoff spot in Week 10 against Snyder, depending on what happens in the Brownwood-Wylie game. The one they'll most likely have to rely on is beating the Tigers by at least 13 points, by way of the point differential rule in case of ties in District 5-3A.
Big Spring cross country coach Randy Britton doesn't want his runners worrying about where they finish when the Steers compete in the regional meet Saturday in Lubbock, at least not during the race.
Britton's approach to this meet is simple: run a personal best and everything will take care of itself.
âThis group of kids is really young,â he said. âI do see a lot of potential in them. My biggest thing to tell them is they need to go up there and try to run a PR (personal best). If they run a PR, there's nothing they can do about it. Just let the chips fall where they may.â
There's not much Howard College can take from its 92-26 win over the Lubbock Christian Junior Varsity team Thursday at Dorothy Garrett Coliseum.
But Howard College head coach Mark Adams is pleased with what his team can do defensively.
âThis is another good warm-up for us,â he said. âWe're getting ready to go up to Weatherford (Okla.). But our defensive effort is good. I think we have a chance to be very good defensively.â
