Tonight marks the end of another season of West Texas high school football. For most of the Crossroads area teams, it means the final game of the season.
Big Spring, under the guidance of Coach Phillip Ritchey and promising sophomore quarterback Tobyn Tannehill, began the season with a shutout win and rolled to a 5-0 start.
The Steers opened district play with a loss, but played No. 2 ranked Abilene Wylie tough.
ANSON â€” If the Tigers' 9-0 record doesn't convine you they are for real, take Forsan Head Coach Jason Phillips' word for it.
â€śAnson is a good football team on both sides of the ball,â€ť Phillips said of the Tigers, who defeated the Buffs 49-7 Friday night in Anson. â€śThey are real physical up front.â€ť
Forsan held a 7-6 lead headed into the second quarter after senior running back Brendan Roman scored a rushing touchdown, but Anson â€” who went 0-10 last year â€” pulled away from the Buffaloes by scoring 43 unanswered points through the remaining three quarters of play.
After losing three straight district games, Big Spring (5-4) looked fired up against Greenwood (6-3) at Memorial Stadium on Friday, but the Steers fell victim to explosive Ranger quarterback Kam Williams' dominant running game and couldn't pull out a win, as Greenwood went away with a 34-20 victory.
