Although their record isn’t what they had hoped at this point, the Brownwood Lions football team is ready to face the Sweetwater Mustangs Friday night in Sweetwater. According to Brownwood High School athletic director and head coach Chuck Howard, the team is resilient and mentally tough.
Sweetwater is picked to win by 3 points, which is a small margin and should indicate that the game may be another nail biter.
“I feel good about the game, we have had a good week of practice and our kids will be ready to play. I don’t pay attention to predictions; all games are decided on the field by the players,” said Howard. “Our players are resilient. They will be ready to play.”
Sweetwater has one more win in their column than Brownwood; however, Brownwood may have an advantage in that they have faced some of the most challenging opponents in first few games of this season, some including several Division I players.
“I don’t believe anyone on our schedule other than Wylie has played the level of competition we have played,” said Howard. “Again, records don’t indicate anything; the game will be decided on the field by the players.”Howard stated that although the pre-district games have been tough, they have prepared the Lions for better play in the coming district matchups.
