Lubbock Westerners HelmetYou need to be a super ball in this business. You need to bounce back fast. LHS needs to this week, that is for sure!

Andrews may have been the worse game we have played since I arrived here. It isn’t acceptable. The kids have worked too hard for that kind of effort. The coaches have invested far too much for the kind of results we got on Saturday. We need to come out fighting mad on Friday.

Dumas plays a physical brand of football. We need to be physical this week. They are looking for their first win just like we are. We need to fix ourselves in a hurry!

TRAVEL TIME
Dumas is a three hour trip for us. Lots of mileage this year! We are going to see a lot of West Texas this season!

WEATHER OR NOT
Forecasts are showing rain and temps in the 50’s in Dumas on Friday night. Football weather! You have to love it! The weather doesn’t matter. Football is to be played. Get it done!

Short blog. Big news day in the world of sports today. But let’s not forget that 9/11 is tomorrow. Keep things in perspective, it’s how I work.

See ya… FIO.
