Second-ranked Gillette will visit #5 Casper Kelly Walsh in our Cowboy State News Network high school football game of the week, this evening in the Oil City. The Camels will be without their starting quarterback, Austin Fort, who must sit out this week after being ejected in his last sporting event last season. KW head coach Jon Vance says despite the Fort suspension, they are game-planning as if he would be in the game.
The Trojans are trying to make a name for themselves this season, as there’s a little bit of expectation with a preseason ranking. Vance says that a win would go a long way to doing that.
In other 4A action, Cheyenne Central hosts #1 Natrona County….#4 Cheyenne East is home for Rock Springs….Cheyenne South visits Evanston…..and #3 Sheridan takes on Laramie.
It’s also zero week for the other classifications in the state, and many will hold scrimmages this weekend. In six-man football, Meeteetsee traveled over a thousand miles to open up their season, as the Longhorns will play Robert Lee, a six-man powerhouse in Texas.
