Wildcats even record with mercy win

SOUTHLAND – The Grady Wildcats were nearly perfect last Friday night with a 55-6 mercy rule win over the Southland Eagles. The Wildcats needed just 21 plays to score seven touchdowns and kicker Alijah Ontiveros was a perfect 6 for 6 on extra points in the Wildcat’s first win of the season.

Grady opened with 32 first quarter points and scored another 23 before halftime to end the game early. Southland managed six points before the final whistle.

Turnovers, disastrous second stanza spoil beginning of Burkhart era in Stanton

BIG LAKE – It wasn’t the start to the new season the Stanton Buffaloes hoped for as the Reagan County Owls defended their home turf at James H. Bird Memorial Stadium 51- 14 last Friday night in Big Lake.

The two teams were knotted at 7-7 after the first quarter and everyone in attendance figured this game would be a tight race to the finish. Unfortunately, the wheels fell off for Stanton in the second quarter allowing Reagan County 32 unanswered and a 39-7 halftime lead.

Stanton played much better in the second half allowing just 12 points while scoring another touchdown of its own.

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.
