HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Bowie, Howe aim for first win of season


Bowie and Aubrey High School played a hard-fought game befitting of what you’d expect on opening night.
Heart-stopping interceptions, special teams snafus and two sound rushing attacks produced a back-and-forth kind of game even a pendulum could appreciate.
“It was an entertaining game between two good teams,” Bowie head coach Dylan Stark said. “I was proud of the effort.”
Tanner Gardiner intercepted a Dustin VanWey pass in the game’s closing seconds, giving Aubrey a 26-20 victory at Jackrabbit Stadium.
Now Bowie prepares for a Howe team that’s smarting after a 42-14 loss last Friday to Gunter.
“They run a Slot-T, which is basically another kind of Wing-T offense,” Stark said.
Look for Howe to have 11 guys bunched at the snap, and this offense looks even more unconventional than the one Bowie faced versus Aubrey.
Howe uses a 3-4 defense, and the Bulldogs like to stunt the linebackers, Stark said. Read more, and see complete statistics, in the Aug. 31 Bowie News.
