Buffalo numbers climb to 82 players as Stanton prepares for first action

STANTON – It’s been a busy week for the Stanton Buffaloes as practices have ramped up with the addition of full contact drills, the first day of school and preparations for the first scrimmage of the football season.

Many of the Buffaloes completed the University Interscholastic League’s mandatory five day acclimation period last Friday and were able to add the full football contact regalia at the start of this week’s practices.

The addition of the extra equipment helped change the mindset of the Buffaloes. “The pad changed our intensity of practice,” stated Stanon coach Jerry Burkhart. “We were able to get more physical and develop some mental toughness.”

Wildcats host Meadow for first scrimmage

GRADY – The Grady Wildcats buckled up their chin straps and strapped on the shoulder pads this past week for the first full contact action of the new football season. Grady will officially have 19 players on the rosters on Monday next week.

Grady coach Brent Lucas has been pleased with the team’s practices the past couple days as “everything has been going pretty well . . . every day we’ve gotten better.”

One of the biggest advantages for the Wildcats this season is the number of returning lettermen. The players are familiar and comfortable with the Grady football atmosphere.

New TV coverage this fall finally recognizing Texas high school football

SAN ANTONIO - High school football in Texas has always been king and while newspapers and magazines have covered it for many decades, it’s been a slow process to get the TV folks in the ball game.

 There’s always plenty of high school football every Friday night on the radio, but television, not so much.

Now the University Interscholastic League has cut a deal with Fox Sports Southwest for the return of Texas Football Days announced during a press conference at the Texas High School Coaches Association’s annual Coaching School and Convention in San Antonio.

Pirates hope to rise above last season’s 2-8 record

The time for Pirate football is once again upon us, but this season fans will once again see a new man in charge of their Pirates in the form of former Pirate Brandon James, who took over the position after former Head Coach, Julian Keggins, decided not to return for a third season in Chilton. With a combined total of seven wins and thirteen losses, Keggins decided it was time to pass the reins, that proudly got picked up by Coach James, who was the girls athletic coordinator previous to this year. With Coach James taking over as the man in charge, there is a renewed sense of hope for the Pirates, following last season’s tragic ending in which the Pirates finished with a two and eight finish.
