HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Nobile gets chance at QB in loss


This certainly wasn’t how Nocona senior quarterback Kyle Sentell envisioned his Senior Night panning out.
Sentell, who was honored before the game with teammates Daniel Keck, Matt Womack and Ryder Nobile on Senior Night, suffered an injury during Friday’s game against District 2-3A-II front-runner Eastland.
During a season in which the young Indians have learned “on the fly,” the team had to make even more adjustments with Nobile at quarterback.
In the end, Eastland’s fast-paced spread offense and speedy defense proved too much for Nocona as the Mavericks downed the Indians 45-6 at Jack Crain Stadium in Nocona.
“Ryder hadn’t taken any snaps at quarterback all year,” Nocona head coach Brad Keck said.
Nocona has one more chance to earn a win during the 2014 season – on the road Nov. 7 at Jacksboro. The team stands 0-9, 0-6 in District 2-3A-II. Meanwhile, Eastland takes on Cisco at the same time for the district championship. Read more in the mid-week Bowie News.
