They threw an incomplete pass, and then the last play was a pass intercepted by Brayden Rogers. We started with a Wow! We ended with a Wow! Postscript: Cisco Loboes won a Bi-District Trophy and will play New Deal in Sweetwater on Friday, November 17, 2023, at 7:00. We hope and pray that Kanon Orsagh is able to play, but everyone appreciated the way everyone held together in spite of losing their valuable leader at QB. Ozona was big and had some hard running backs but our linemen played tough and held their own all night. I am sorry that the linemen are not mentioned more, but it is difficult when there is a mass pile up to see who all is involved, and also some JV players have rotated into the action, but without a program and not knowing who they are I cannot give ample coverage. And for the coaches, I know these plays have names that I don’t know and blocking schemes that are important that I also do not know. Keep winning and I promise to improve also. Addendum: I believe the person who traveled the longest distance to see the game had to be Chip Drumwright who drove from Denver—650 miles.
