August 24, 2017 - The Cross Plains Buffaloes are probably the sleeper in the Big Country.
They are picked to go to the playoffs as the second place team from the district, but head coach Daniel Purvis has something no other team in the area has. Every position is filled with a returning starter but two. On top of that, 17 lettermen are back.
Things seem to be set up for a great year in Cross Plains.
Daniel Purvis said, "This is the first time, I'm starting one sophomore on one side of the ball, and that's the first time I've ever gotten the opportunity to do that here. I've always had to start a few sophomores, a few freshmen. A lot of these seniors had to start when they were freshmen."
Aaron Willis said, "Pretty confident knowing that we've got so many returners coming back. Especially after losing only two starters last year. I feel like we have pretty good chances this year."
James Rhyne said, "We've got a lot of seniors and juniors that's played a lot of football games, and like Aaron and me, we're both four year starters, and Creed Goode, he's a four year starter too, have got a lot of playing time."
The 2017 season starts next Friday night for the Cross Plains.
They are headed over to Menard to face the Yellow Jackets.
