In case you haven’t heard, it’s football season. The Altus Junior High 7th and 8th graders open their season in Lawton against Ike today at 5 p.m. This 8th grade bunch is big and fast. They are also a tight-knit, coachable group. That is a great formula for success. The 7th graders are big up front, and look to make some noise of their own tonight. Good luck fellas!
GO DAWGS !!
The 9th grade Altus Bulldogs will host Vernon, Texas on Thursday. Then, if you aren’t burned out on football by Friday, head south across the bridge and catch the Bulldogs open the 2015 season.
Seriously, a large contingency of Bulldog supporters will be on that same road, probably bumper to bumper. Let’s be safe and patient on the road.
Vernon dropped their opener on Friday to Graham, 42-7. However, this week’s matchup against Altus is a rivalry game, and a Red River border battle, so Vernon’s loss to Graham should be completely ignored.
I’ve overheard several Bulldogs at practices proclaim that they are tired of hitting their teammates, and they are ready to hit someone else. I think I speak for this entire fan base when I claim that we certainly are ready to see it.
GO BULLDOGS !! Here we go boys. It’s 2015 and the start of something big.
