WICHITA FALLS â€” The best way to describe Sweet-waterâ€™s opening scrimmage against Wichita Falls Hir-schi on Friday might be to use the title of a Clint Eastwood movie.
There was the good, the bad, and the ugly.
The good: a productive passing game led by number one quarterback Kaegan Jeffrey, who completed 13 of 18 passes for 194 yards and Sweetwaterâ€™s only score, a 1-yard toss to Kaleb Hoov-er. Hoover (4 for 64), Bray Amos (3 for 68) and Isaiah McGee (4 for 47) were Jef-freyâ€™s favorite targets.
