The West Texas Comanches opened the 2011 football season with a bang Friday night, notching a 35-6 win over former District foe Gruver Greyhounds. The Tribe did well on both sides of the ball with the offense getting 452 total yards. The defense practically shut down the Hounds, holding them to just 73 total yards of offense. Most of that came on Gruverâ€™s lone touchdown, a 45 yard run in the fourth quarter. The score could have and should have been much worse, but the Comanches had three touchdowns called back on penalties.

On Wednesday afternoon, Randall Raider Head Coach Bryan Wood shared a couple of his thoughts on tonightâ€™s game between his team and the Borger Bulldogs.
