All four area teams hosting openers

They’re in different classes and are split evenly between playing 11-man or six-man football. But Nolan County’s teams have one thing in common this weekend: they’re all starting out the season at home.
For Sweetwater, Highland and Roscoe, play begins at 7:30 p.m. today. Blackwell starts its season Saturday as Clint Lowry’s team, the only area playoff squad in 2018, celebrates homecoming.
For both Sweetwater (1-9 last year) and Roscoe (3-7) today’s games are a fresh start to the hope of better things to come.
The best game in the area might be at Highland (7-3), which hosts Grady (8-3 this past season). Highland won 32-28 last year. Blackwell (11-1) hosts a 6-4 Eden team that it beat 52-40 last year.
