    The third week of football season finds Cumby and Como-Pickton both looking for their first win.

Como-Pickton at Winona
    This week could be another rough one with the Trojans and Eagles both predicted to lose by 42 points according to the Harris Rating Service.
    The Eagles fly over to District 10-2A, Div. II for a meeting with the Winona Wildcats.
    Como-Pickton is 0-2 for the year having lost to Corsicana Mildred and Harmony by 60-0 scores.
    Winona is 2-0 and on a roll with a 46-26 win against Overton and a 28-26 edging of Big Sandy.
    The Wildcats are picked third in the district race. They have three offensive and six defensive starters back from a 5-6 playoff team.
    The team is led by running back Ke’Aaron Cobb. the 5-8, 190-pounder ran for 898 yards last year. Full back Montana Morgan (5-7, 165) had 556 yards and five touchdowns last season.
    Other standouts include tight end Crisitan Mendez, linebacker Devin Johnson and defensive back Corey Jackson.
    Como-Pickton and Winona play at Winona Friday at 7:30 p.m. in a non-district contest.

Wolfe City at Cumby
    Maybe Cumby can sneak up on the Wolves when the teams collide at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Frazier-Lawrence Field.
    Wolfe City is on a roll with two wins in a pair of home games.
    The squad rang up a 42-6 win over Bells and beat Tom Bean, 47-27.
    Cumby is 0-2 for the year, having lost 32-18 at Alba-Golden and fell 37-7 against Celeste in Cumby last week.
    “It is a marathon of a season and not a sprint,” said Tom Dracos, Cumby head football coach. “We are improving every day still.  We are going to get there.  It is taking longer than any of us want it to, but like most things we can't control time.  The kids have bounced back pretty well and we had a good day of practice Monday and kids have been asking a lot more questions this week. So I know mentally they are focused.  If we won the first five and lost the second five it would be a bad season.  We lose the first five and win the last 10 and it will be the best season ever.  Nobody likes losing, but losing preseason games are way better than district games. We are a young team and we can see the improvement in each kid. We have been really lucky not to have anyone suffer a major injury yet.  I hope that continues.”
