The Cumby Trojans play their second scrimmage of the football season today as they trek to Dallas Gateway for a 6 p.m. scrimmage.
The Trojans have been hard at work under the summer sun, learning a new system installed by head coach Tom Dracos.
Dracos, a longtime assistant football coach, was named head coach and athletic director of the Trojans after the departure of Gary Parrish.
The new coach is getting the Trojans used to running a spread offense and a 3-4 defense.
“I am pleased with our practices. We have been working hard,” Dracos said.
The Trojans fell 1-0 in their first scrimmage which was held Saturday at Van against powerhouse Tenaha.
Tenaha, the No. 1 ranked Class A team in some polls, scored once on the Cumby varsity and one time against the junior varsity. The Trojans were held out of the end zone.
Dracos said he is treating the scrimmage like a game for the Trojans.
Cumby currently have 32 players on the roster. The team has been able to avoid injuries so far during workouts and scrimmages.
Cumby takes on Dallas Gateway, a team picked fifth in the six-team District 6-1, Div. I race.
Both teams posted 4-6 records during 2012.
Dracos said his defense will be tested in the game as they adjust to the speed of varsity football.
Cumby will open the regular season, Friday, Aug. 30 at Alba-Golden. The first home game is Sept. 6 against Celeste.
