Don’t let Poteet’s 0-8 record fool anybody. The Aggies have improved dramatically over the course of the season and have had opportunities to win their last three ballgames. A 32-21 loss to Carrizo Springs to start district was followed by narrower defeats to Hondo (20-14) and Crystal City (43-36).
“Poteet is a team that has just gotten better and better every week,” asserted Head Devine Coach Paul Gomez. “They have a new head coach in Darby House and the players are learning new offensive and defensive schemes. They have improved with every game and they are definitely much better now than they appeared to be at the beginning of the year.
They are a big team. They have a very good defensive tackle in junior Roderick King. He is 6’5”, 280lbs and very quick for his size. He also plays offensive line and lines up as a fullback from time to time. Their entire line is big and their linebackers are aggressive.
Poteet’s offensive big play threat is junior Eric Trevino (#2) who plays wide receiver and running back. They run behind that big offensive line and have good-sized wide receivers in junior Joseph Mancha (#13) and Diego Puente (#80).
We have to keep getting better every week. That is the only thing that we can control. How we prepare and practice is what we can control. We have to practice with the same intensity and focus as we would in the games.”
Kickoff is set for 7:30 in Poteet.
