The CCMS football team hit the field at Cedar Grove this past Tuesday night for some much needed scrapping. It was a much anticipated event because of the exodus of so many players to CCHS. So the team is in a rebuild year, so to speak. However, it did not show at the middle school grid. They faced off against Fayetteville and Sherman . The boys came out with one thing on their mind and that was to take it to the chops of anybody in the way. The boys have the strength and the power to stop the run, and the linebackers have the speed and grit to stop the outside run. The defensive backs broke up more passes than a soap opera. Basically, what I am saying is that they shut down the offense of both teams. There were some mistakes made by the Mustang offense, but they were able to move the ball down field. Most of those bugs will be worked out by the season opener, and the Mustangs will be a well oiled machine and ready to get the job done. The Mustangs have returning coach Barry Payton at the helm with assistance from Frank Kleman and Greg Knopp. CCMS will be well represented on the field and, no doubt, they will have the team ready for play. They play hard, they hit hard and they want to win! Get out, grab a hotdog and drink and enjoy the game. First game will be on the road at Braxton Middle on Thursday evening.
