Four former Sulphur Springs standout athletes will be rightfully inducted into the Wildcat Hall of Honor before the SSHS game against Greenville on Friday night at Gerald Prim Stadium.
Most of the area teams are putting their preseason behind them. It is week six of gridiron action, and there is a cool, crisp breeze in the air making it perfect for football in Texas. Challenging for a win to open district will be the Como-Pickton Eagles as they are on the road for a second week in a row at De Kalb, the Cooper Bulldogs will hop on the bus to ride up State Highway 19 in a contest with Paris Chisum, Winnsboro hosts Mineola, a district opponent dropping from 3A, and Mount Vernon hosts Pleasant Grove to open their district in 3A competition. The Cumby Trojan varsity team has a bye this week while the JV team hosted Clarksville on Thursday.
The Sulphur Springs Wildcats will try to start another win streak Friday when they host the winless Greenville Lions at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Gerald Prim Stadium.
The Wildcats saw their four-game win streak and a possible outright district title disappear Friday at Sherman. The 60-34 loss was caused in part by five turnovers. The defeat dropped the Sulphur Springs squad to 1-1 in district, 4-2 on the year.
