It’s finally here, Friday night lights for Cheyenne East, Central and South football. The defending Class 4A champs are on the road to start of the season, as East visits Rock Springs. The Tigers are breaking in a new coach, as David Hastings will lead the Rock Springs football program now. On paper, this game looks like a mismatch, but there is quite a bit of unfamiliarity with Rock Springs according to T-birds head coach Chad Goff. He says anytime you’re dealing with a new coaching situation at a school with the numbers that Rock Springs has, it’s tough to gauge just what they will bring to the field.
Kickoff at Tiger Stadium in Rock Springs is set for 7 pm.
Also starting out on the road, the Central Indians. The Tribe head to Casper to play #2 Natrona County. They also do so with a new coach for the first time in 18 years. Drew Severn leads Central onto the Cheney Alumni Field turf and has an uphill climb. But Severn says it’s their job as a team, to match the intensity that he knows the Mustangs will bring to the field.
Kickoff in Casper is set for 7 pm. You can catch all the action on the air at AM 1240 KFBC, or right here on this website, by clicking the on-air stream of the listen live link.
The only team in town–the South Bison. Heading into their fourth season in 4A, the Bison will try and start the season off with a win against Evanston. And it figures to be a winnable game for South, as they’ve played the Red Devils close the last two years. Kickoff at Bison Stadium is set for 7 pm.
In the county, Burns and Pine Bluffs will play zero week games, which won’t count against their record. The Broncs will play at Lusk tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 10 a.m., while the Hornets host Saratoga, also at 10 a.m. Regular seasons for these teams begin next Friday.
