FRIDAY, AUG. 31
Sammy Baugh Clas-sic: Sweetwater hosts Eastland, 7:30 p.m.
Highland vs. Motley County at Jaytonâ€™s Grid-iron Classic, 6 p.m.
Two weather-shortened scrimmages against Wich-ita Falls Hirschi and San Angelo Lake View werenâ€™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 Fridayâ€™s season opener at the Sammy Baugh Classic against a highly regarded Eastland squad.
And Mobley knows that his playersâ€™ ability to successfully execute his new spread offense will be crucial to the final outcome.
After an 0-10 season a year ago, Roscoe head coach Jonathan Haseloff would like nothing more than for his Plowboys to win todayâ€™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-leyâ€™s Wing-T offense, which is similar to De Leonâ€™s, in last weekâ€™s final scrimmage will help Roscoe know what to prepare for today.
GRAHAM â€” Sweetwaterâ€™s Lady Mustangs won both ends of a dual match here Tuesday as it swept past Graham and Breckenridge in three games.
Sweetwater (12-7) defeated Graham 25-15, 25-16, 25-8 and beat Breckenridge 25-20, 25-15, 25-12 in two of its most dominating per-formances of the season. The Lady Mustangs will be at Frenshipâ€™s two-day tournament starting Friday.
