After three weeks of workouts and two scrimmages, the Buckaroos are now set to kick-off the 2014 football campaign.

The Bucks, who looked solid in scrimmages against Mineral Wells and Early, will get to see how they stack up against tough competition Friday evening by facing the defending Class 2A-Div. II State-Champions Cisco Loboes.

Cisco, who lost standout athletes Colton Kent and Mason Reed, will look to fill those two spots and several other skill position slots in 2014.

Buckaroo Head Coach Casey Hubble says Cisco is a solid football team that has a good football program.
“Cisco is a well-established football program,” said Hubble. “You are going to have to beat them.

They are not going to beat themselves and make a bunch of mistakes. Our approach is to concentrate on us. That is how I have approached everything. It’s not about Cisco or anyone else but us.”

“We are going to focus on us and what we need to do to be successful against a team that holds the belt. Right now it’s Cisco,” said Hubble.

Hubble says the Bucks will need to play solid, fundamentally sound football Friday.

“Cisco is a very good, talented and very efficient team, so we will have to go out and match their intensity. But most importantly, we have to play good football and execute,” said Hubble. “If we can go out and do our job, then the rest will take care of itself.
