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.
For two of them — Roscoe and Highland — it will also be a chance to avenge a loss in their season opener against the same opponent this past year.
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.

But the teams combined for 710 yards, and with Sweetwater having a year to adjust to Mobley’s spread offense, that number could go higher in Friday’s season-opening rematch at 7:30 p.m. in Eastland.
