SOUTHLAND, Texas — Southland High School was named the Division 1A Team of the Week by Dave Campbell’s Texas Football.
The Eagles beat Cotton Center 37-26 in their season opener Friday.
“Our kids, they were just psyched to win. I haven’t even got to tell them they are the Team of the Week but they are going to be thrilled,” Head Coach Dusty Grantham said. “To get to come out this year and start with a win, I’m so thrilled for our kids. You would have thought they won a district championship or something, they were just so excited to get a win.”
Southland finished last season winless and was forced to forfeit games towards the end of the season due to a roster depleted by injuries, Southland ISD told EverythingLubbock.com.
Cotton Center beat Southland 49-44 in this matchup last season.
Southland has a big test this week. The Eagles will host No. 10 Anton.
