The Roby Lions ended 1 of the longest postseason droughts in the Big Country this year.
The Roby Lions ended 1 of the longest postseason droughts in the Big Country this year.

The Lions qualified for the Class A Division I playoffs for the 1st time since 2004 by finishing in 3rd place in District 7-A.

The Lions, who have won 5 of their last 6, reward is a meeting with defending state champion Munday.

It's tough opener, but the Roby players and coaches are looking to the challenge.

The Lions Lorenzo Ramirez said, "It's going to be weird. We never had that feeling before, but they are the returning state champs, so it's going to be fun. It's a different feel in the air. I mean, usually at this time we are in the gym practicing for basketball, so it's really exciting."

Roby head coach Nick Dickson said, "I was in the playoffs and had that experience. I've been able to tell the kids about how exciting it is, but it's just another football game. You know, just don't get big-eyed when they get on the field, and the kids are excited to play them."

Coach Dickson and his Lions take on Munday on Friday night in Tuscola. The Moguls enter with a 5-5 record.
