It’s a top five showdown to highlight the high school football schedule today. The #1 team in 4A, Natrona County, hosts third-ranked Cheyenne East in the Cowboy State News Network high school football game of the week. The defending champion Mustangs thrive on opponents mistakes, and Thunderbirds head coach Chad Goff says that NC is very good at forcing opponents out of their comfort zone.
Mustangs head coach Steve Harshman thought at the beginning of the year that East was going to be one of the favorites this year. And judging from week one, Harshman says that they really fit the part.
