Big Game Awaits Dogs Friday vs. LG
Another big game awaits the Dogs this Friday, when they host Lone Grove in a battle of undefeated teams in district play.
The Dogs rolled over Purcell 41-7 last week, but this week’s opponent, the Longhorns, also moved their record to 5-0 with a 49-14 win over Douglass.
Sulphur head coach Jim Dixon and his staff are impressed with Purcell and know the Dogs have a tough test on hand.
“They are the best team we have seen this year,” he said. “They are really good. They have a lot of talent and they are wellcoached. We have to be ready to play and play well.”
Dixon mentioned the Longhorns have a bunch of players returning from last year and have depth that is almost unheard of at this level.
“They have a lot of kids back from last season and I think they are a lot better,” Dixon said. “And they start 21 or 22 kids, so they have no one going both ways, which is huge for them.”
