Looking for their first win of the season, the Redhawk football took on the Lone Star Rangers Thursday, but couldn’t soar above ,losing 69-14.

“When you don’t play well versus a good team, the score is not going to be pretty,” head coach Matt Swinnea said. “I thought the first quarter showed some promise, especially on offense. We came up short on two fourth-down conversions. If we get those, it might have been a different outcome. We had way too many busted assignments.”  

Senior Will Jackson believes that mentality is something the team could work on heading into next week’s game against Wakeland.

“I think we need to work on just keeping our heads up and getting to the next play,” Jackson said. “Too many times I found myself and other teammates worrying about the play before and not what was going on the play.”

Similarly to Jackson, Swinnea believes the team needs to be consistent heading into each play in order to gain a win.

“Sometimes players think that versus a good opponent they have to do more,” Swinnea said. “They don’t, they just have to do their job consistently well.”
