It’s a big early season tilt in Class 3A tonight (Friday). Our Cowboy State News Network game of the week makes a stop in Douglas as the #2 Bearcats host #3 Cody. Douglas head coach Jay Rhoades is very familiar with members of the Broncs’ coaching staff, as he played and coached with many of them at Chadron State, so he knows they’re going to be well prepared. Rhoades says they’re going to be challenged by the size and athleticism of Cody.
Broncs head coach Matt McFadden says it starts with his team being able to run the football and not allowing the Bearcats any big plays.
In other action across the state: Class 4A–#1 Gillette is at #5 Cheyenne Central…..Class 1A–#2 Cokeville hosts #3 Southeast, and #4 Rocky Mountain is home for #5 Upton-Sundance.
