Mustangs hoping for good start against Mavs

August 30, 2012

Two weather-shortened scrimmages against Wich-ita Falls Hirschi and San Angelo Lake View weren’t able to accomplish every-thing Shane Mobley had hoped. However, the first-year Sweetwater head coach still thinks his team will be ready for Friday’s season opener at the Sammy Baugh Classic against a highly regarded Eastland squad.
And Mobley knows that his players’ ability to successfully execute his new spread offense will be crucial to the final outcome.

Plowboys face Bearcats to begin Classic, season

August 30, 2012

After an 0-10 season a year ago, Roscoe head coach Jonathan Haseloff would like nothing more than for his Plowboys to win today’s 7:30 p.m. season opener against De Leon to begin the Sammy Baugh Classic.
A victory at Mustang Bowl over the Bearcats, who were 3-7 a year ago, would go a long way toward getting the program back on track to reaching the heights it has normally enjoyed.
And playing against Haw-ley’s Wing-T offense, which is similar to De Leon’s, in last week’s final scrimmage will help Roscoe know what to prepare for today.
