For the surging Forsan Buffaloes, seeing an 0-6 Anson Tigers team on their schedule for this week's game must seem too good to be true. Head Coach Jason Phillips says his team has been warned to pay no attention to the big goose egg on Anson's record.
âWe have told the team all week not to look at their record,â Coach Phillips said. âThey have played some close games and their talent is better than that of an 0-6 team.â
Coming off of a 22-7 victory over undefeated Hawley last week, the Coahoma Bulldogs get ready to face another district challenge, as they host the Post Antelopes Friday night.
Post comes into Bulldog Stadium sporting a 2-4 (1-1) record, gaining their second win of the season last week in a 31-7 handling of district rival Anson.
Coming off of their sixth straight loss this season, the Big Spring Steers welcome the beginning of district play as a new start. While head coach Phillip Ritchey and his coaching staff may be able to salvage some lessons for the Steers out of the losses, the fact that everyone is tied up at 0-0 right now has to be comforting.
âEverything comes down to this time of the year,â Coach Ritchey said. âStarting right now, the games count. We learned a lot of lessons over the stretch of the last six weeks. Now it's time to make the best out of them.â
