FOOTBALL: Nocona seeking district victory


Nocona High School plays at Holliday this Friday in a battle of teams looking for their first District 2-3A-II win.
With the Indians roster limited by numbers, head coach Brad Keck knows it will be a challenge for his team.
“We’ll have our work cut out for us,” Keck said.
The coach said at this point, it’s a matter of simply trying to get better from week to week, and this is no different. Nocona and Holliday will kick off at 7:30 p.m.
Keck said Holliday boasts quarterback Levi Draper, who started several games last season as a sophomore. The Eagles run a spread offense.
On defense, Holliday will present a variety of looks, especially in terms of the number of players along the frontline.
“They like to run a bunch of stunts and use man coverage on your receivers,” Keck said.
Nocona had a turbulent week last week, which included the dismissal of two players – Catalino Hernandez and Cristian Ibarra – for disciplinary reasons. Read more in the mid-week Bowie News.
