BROWNFIELD CUBS 2016 FOOTBALL PREVIEW… HOW FAR CAN THE CUBS GO??

Honestly, how far can the Cubs go in 2016? Last year’s football team started with promise as Brownfield won their first eight games, only to lose two out of their last three games; with one that included a thrilling loss to Littlefield after a failed 2-point attempt in the last two minutes of the bi-district round game, 42-41. Jaelyn Nolan(2,590 yards passing, 1,045 yards rushing), Isiah Hood(351 yards receiving), and Jezreel Griffin(895 yards receiving) return this fall to form a dangerous three-headed monster on offense, but will players like Darius Kyle step up on the defensive side of the ball that faltered late down the stretch for the Cubs? Here is our preview below.

In a new classification, and a new district, the Cubs will be tested in every game including a neutral site game clash against the 4A Division One semifinalists, Abilene Wylie’s Bulldogs. One thing about Coach Welps is he doesn’t run from competition and his teams’ schedule has nine teams that made the playoffs in 2015. In their new 1-4A DII district, teams like Perryton and Bushland will serve as severe threats to the title. But if Brownfield can get a running game established on a consistent basis they will be right back in the playoffs, probably against Midland Greenwood in the bi-district round. How far they go will depend on players like Chili Morin, Diego Garcia, Cody Sato and Cameron McQueen making impactful plays on defense. Here is their 2016 schedule and prediction below.Unknown
