The Roby football team’s 2018 football schedule will not include varsity opponents for any of its District 7-2A, Division II games as a result of decrease in program numbers.
Roby CISD Superintendent Heath Dickson confirmed Thursday that the Lions’ 14-15 players will face four non-district varsity teams, but face JV squads from its six 7-2A DII opponents, including the Lions’ scheduled game Oct. 5 with Roscoe.
Also, the resignation of Steven Grigsby means Roby is searching for a head coach. Dickson is hoping by July 9 to have a recommendation for a new head coach.
