Kicking off the same weekend as college football are our high school teams and its seasons. With that, we continue previewing the South Plains with the Lubbock Cooper Pirates.
In his first year at the helm, Max Kattwinkel led his team further in the playoffs than any other Cooper team, making it to the regional finals.
Now in his sophomore season Kattwinkel will have plenty of quality starters back from that squad. He loses his quarterback Stanton Keane who successfully walked on for the Texas Tech football team, but they have the pieces to fill certain roles that have been vacated by graduation.
Right now the biggest concern is bringing this year's guys together and getting everyone on the same page as they prepare to venture into class 5A.
