Plowboys expect to be factor in rugged 7-2A

The last 12 months have not been particularly kind to Roscoe.
After four straight playoff appearances, the Plowboys fell to 3-7 in 2018 and missed the postseason for only the second time since Jake Freeman took over the football program prior to the 2013 season.
Roscoe’s lone District 7-2A, D-II win last year was over Baird, which dropped from the 11-man ranks this season to six-man.
That leaves the district with just five teams, two — No. 3-ranked Hamlin and No. 6 Albany — of whom are considered top-10 teams by Texas Football magazine while the other two, Haskell and Cross Plains, also are picked to make the playoffs.
This year’s goals, though, have not changed for the Plowboys.
“Our expectations are still to make the playoffs,” Freeman said.
