To prove how good the 13-4A football district is, the top teams from that district continue in the state football playoffs.
For Sulphur Springs to continue on the playoff road, they have to take a step through area competition.
The Wildcats, the defending Class 4A Division II state champions, are paired up against Waco University this week in the area playoffs. The Region II Class 4A Area Division II football playoff game is set for 7:30 p.m. at Corsicana’s Tiger Stadium.
Sulphur Springs head football coach Greg Owens said practice has been going great for the upcoming area contest.
“We had to deal with another element, this week the weather,” Owens said. “It has been colder this week, plus we have to adjust to it getting darker quicker this time of year.”
