The Cisco Loboes took the field at Chesley Stadium for the first time after winning the state title, and wasted little time getting back to work.

One of the big holes Brent West's squad must fill this year is in the backfield after the departure of running back Mason Reed. Last year's backup, Landon Lewis, proved on Friday night that will not be a problem for the Loboes.

Lewis quickly found the endzone against Brady, and remained sharp the entire night for Cisco.

The Loboes defense was also impressive on Friday night against the Bulldogs. Swarming to the football, and coming up with stops against a Brady team loaded with experience off their own playoff appearance in 2013.

"The first thing I told the boys when we were in the huddle a while ago was it seems just the like the other day in December we were at Texas
Stadium doing this and it's exciting. Our kids are fired up. The scrimmage, I mean it's a glorified practice, but we got some good out of it. Brady brought some great competition. Did a good job showing us some things, and I feel like our kids really improved today," said head coach Brent West.

The players were also excited to see the lights back on, and be back on the field against another team.

"They came out and played a real good physical game. Like Coach West said it's going to be like that all year because being the defending state champions everybody's going to be ready to knock you off," said Landon Lewis.

Cisco will have one more scrimmage against Albany on Thursday night.
