The first varsity meeting between Cooper and Wylie is a non-district game, but it’s important for both schools because they need a win.
They are both 0-3 entering tomorrow’s game.
To that end, Aaron Roan and Hugh Sandifer say they have their hands with the other team, and that first win isn’t going to come easy.
“The offensive and defensive lines are really big, good players. The thing with Cooper is that they’ve got a lot of team speed, a very talented quarterback,” Head Coach Hugh Sandifer said. “The speed of the game will be a challenge for us and that’s one thing that really stands out when you look at them on film.”
“I think they’re a good football team, they’re in a similar situation we are. A couple things bounce a different way and their record is different from what their record is today,” Head Coach Aaron Roan said.
“I think they’re well coached, their kids play extremely hard, they do and execute their assignments really well, I think it’s going to be a tough matchup again this week, I think it’s going to be a hard and difficult challenge for us and I look forward to seeing our kids respond and getting out there on the field.”
The Southtown Showdown is tomorrow night at Shotwell Stadium.
It will kick off at 7 p.m.
