“Chase played a little tight in the first half last week,” Hutton said. “But he and the team settled down in the second half. Hopefully, he can get off to a clean start (today).”
Gordon (0-1) hopes to rebound after a season-opening loss to No. 2 Dallas The Covenant last Saturday. The ‘Horns will host Stephenville Faith, normally a private six-man power, at 7:30 p.m. today at Longhorn Stadium.
The contest will be a battle of two teams each seeking their first win of the season as Faith fell 72-26 to Lometa in its opener.
Millsap (0-1) is seeking its first win and will play at Dublin at 7:30 p.m. today. Millsap head coach Kyle Coker is pleased with the Bulldogs’ work ethic and feels it will translate to a win soon.
Dublin (0-1) is coming off a 48-23 loss to Hico.
“If we keep working hard,” Coker said, “good things will happen. There is no quit in our kids, no give up, and I expect the same (today).”
CCS (0-1), coming off a season-opening loss to Johnson County home school, is also seeking its first win. The Warriors will host Dallas Tyler Street Christian Academy at 7 p.m, today at Miller Stadium.
“What you saw in Johnson County was a team that knows how to win,” CCS head coach Bryan Horton said. “They’ve got seniors that have been winning for three years now: state championship games, state semifinals. That’s not where we’ve been the last couple years.
“I think (my team) saw what it is they lack and have an idea of what they need to correct. We’ll go out against Tyler Street, another good team, and see if we can get that fixed.”
