Bowie played before high school alumni on homecoming night, taking on a salty group from Gunter.
The Jackrabbits closed out the non-district schedule with a 1-4 record after a 48-14 loss.
“I feel like we did some good things,” said head coach Dylan Stark. “But whenever we’d get something good going, we’d shoot ourselves in the foot. But, I still felt we played better than we did against Pottsboro.”
One could say optimism for Bowie was hard to come by as Gunter had lost their game to Pilot Point the previous week and their eighth-place ranking in the Associated Press Texas 3A Division II poll.
However, Stark said the team was largely unaffected by any outside talk.
“We knew Gunter was a good team, but we feel like we’re a good team too.” Read more in the mid-week edition of The Bowie News.
