  “It is Senior  Night and we have four football players.  These seniors. have been very important to us, especially since we have played with many underclassmen,” said Conley Bland, Como-Pickton head football coach. “It has been a difficult year for them, because like most seniors. they had hoped for a good year.  I am very proud of the seniors because they made a commitment and stuck with it, unlike many of their classmates.”
    Bland said, “We worked in rain each day at practice. Chisum is a good team and a lot better than they have been in the past.  It will be a tough game for us, but our guys will give a great effort, just like they have all year.”
