ALEDO â€“ When the Gainesville High School Leopards looked at the statistical numbers associated with the Big Spring High School Steers, they probably got all giddy and developed a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Garrett Wigington and Manuel Galvan helped the Steer defense turn that feeling into one of disappointment and despair on a cold Friday night at Bearcats Stadium.

Nathan Schneider didnâ€™t think too much about the situation when Brownwoodâ€™s Harley Price ducked his head and pushed his way into a pile in an effort to get a few extra yards. He only knew one thing, with his team trailing with 9:25 left in the game the Steers desperately needed the ball.
Thus, when Price didnâ€™t go down, Schneider decided to try and strip the ball from the running backsâ€™ hands.
