“The defense played extremely hard with a lot of energy. We gave up too many big plays that let them get out of some third and longs. But we played with a lot of hustle and heart,” said Greg Owens, Sulphur Springs head football coach. “BJ Stribling, Melroy Givens, and Cain Cody all had exceptional games. “
The coach continued, “We are wounded today, but understand the level we must get to, to play with some of the elite teams in the state. We will work to improve this week to prepare for a very athletic Paris team. Both Sulphur Springs and Paris are 1-2 coming off losses by Top 5 ranked teams.”
