What they’re saying: “Anderson is a 5A school. They’ve changed some schemes this year. … We’ve been playing some pretty good programs, and we haven’t really been able to get our feet wet. It’s frustrating for the players because they’re working incredibly hard. We have to slowly but surely get better,” Lehman head coach Todd Raymond.
Players to watch
Lehman: OL Kenny Higgins, QB Josh Guerrero, RB Paul Brown, WR/KR Brandon Hamilton, TE Tyler Dodero, WR Kelton Powell, FS Tyler Hyss, CB Kyron Morrissette, LB AJ Armonta, LB Ben Mitchell
Anderson: RB Deryl Bunton, QB Kirby Hills, OL Jacob Valdez, LB Blake Allen
Intangibles: A victory for Lehman would build some much-needed momentum as the young Lobo squad heads into its bye week, followed by its first district game against tough crosstown rival Hays. Both Lehman’s and Anderson’s offenses struggled in blowout losses last week. The team that wastes the least amount of time figuring out how to reduce turnovers and move the chains will likely prevail.
Hays Free Press prediction: Lehman 13, Anderson 7
