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.
