Area teams to begin on road

August 30, 2013

For Nolan County’s three area football teams, success in their season openers will mean winning on the road.

Today’s game at De Leon will also mark the head coaching debut for Roscoe’s Jake Freeman, who returned to his home town after being an assistant at Sweetwater the past four years.
