We are coming down to the wire in high school football as Week 9 of the High School season begins on Thursday with Lubbock High playing host to Fresnhip.
The game of the week in our area, though, very well could be the Cooper Pirates going out to visit the Shallowater Mustangs.
Shallowater comes in with a perfect 8-0 record for the 2nd year in a row, while the Pirates, under 1st year head coach Max Kattwinkel are at a very impressive 7-1 with a perfect 3-0 district mark as well. But Shallowater has the district's most potent offense and they have some kid named Black running wild once again in 2013. It will be up to that Cooper defense to try and slow them down.
