Our area high schools continue working towards the first week of the season and we continue our South Plains Preseason Blitz with the New Deal Lions.

There is a noticeable absence at practice this Fall as Ron Mayo retired as the head coach after 17 years, turning his alma mater into playoff stalwarts.
