Sulphur Springs put in double duty Tuesday practicing on both indoor and outdoor fields.
The team is preparing for district foe Pine Tree Friday. The Wildcats and Pirates clash at 7:30 p.m. new Pirate Stadium in Longview.
Sulphur Springs is coming off a 65-38 win over Hallsville to advance to 2-1 in district play. Pine Tree is 0-3 in district, 3-5 overall.
“We like to go outside when we can. We could not do that Monday, because the field was so wet. We worked out some outdoors Tuesday,” Greg Owens head football coach said. “We are blessed with the multi-purpose building so we can use it when we need it. It looks like we will be using it the rest of the week.”
Owens said, “We had probably saved lots of money practicing inside and not using our equipment outside and getting it ruined. We get quality work done inside and it helps us on Friday. We’ve had some real good workouts. We are guarding against a let down against Pine Tree.”
The coach continued, “Pine Tree might be 0-3 in district, but they have some of the best-looking athletes around. They have players with speed. They use three or four quarterback. Pine Tree has some big, talented linemen. They have gone through a coaching change this year, I don’t know how much that changed things. But their main offensive and defensive play-callers have stayed the same. They look like the same team.”
