Area high school football teams peeled back the curtains this past weekend, unveiling their squads with scrimmages.
Saint Jo squared off with Westlake Academy, a private school that plays in the Texas Christian Athletic Fellowship group, on Friday in Saint Jo.
Gold-Burg faced Wichita Falls private school Notre Dame and Nocona challenged Windthorst on a cloudy Saturday morning.
“I thought we did some good things,” Nocona head coach Brad Keck said. “The defense made mistakes. But, there was good effort and hustle all around.”
Forestburg, aside from Bowie, was the only other team to scrimmage on the road this past weekend. The Longhorns traveled two hours west to rural Vernon, taking on Northside and Paint Creek.
Nocona’s players are learning new positions and terminology under first-year defensive coordinator Jon Shaw.
“We’re doing some tweaking,” Keck said.
Kyle Sentell is one of Nocona’s players adjusting to a new position on defense, transferring from defensive end to safety. Read more from this story in the mid-week edition of The Bowie News.

Bowie senior Nathan Rodgers signed his letter of intent to run at Ranger College on Monday.

Bowie’s Nathan Rodgers signed his letter of intent to run cross country and track at Ranger College.
The senior, who is the son of Ryan and Jessica Rodgers, has spent the past three years running on the varsity cross country team as one of its top runners. He helped the team win the district title in 2020 and has helped the Jackrabbits to team district runner-up finishes in 2021 and 2022.
While running in the regional meet the past three years, Rodgers had his best finish this past fall at 32nd.
Rodgers also played varsity basketball his senior year and helped the Jackrabbits make it to the regional quarterfinals.
“Ranger offered me quite a good deal,” Rodgers said. “The coach is a good one who will develop me and make me better. I already met some of my teammates so we already have that bond. All around it was just a good college.”
