Tonight, the Coppell football team concludes the regular season, seeking its ninth win, before beginning its  journey into playoffs.

 

For Senior Night, the District 9-6A champion Cowboys take on the Richardson Eagles (1-8 overall, and 1-5 in District 9-6A) at 7:30p.m. at Buddy Echols Field. Next week the Coppell Cowboys will play their first playoff against the Rowlett Eagles(6-4 overall, and 5-1 in District 9-6A), at home on Friday starting at 7:30p.m.

 

The Cowboys (8-1 overall,  6-0) are coming off a 31-19 victory over the Skyline Raiders.

 

The Cowboys offensive will look to protect senior quarterback Brady McBride, as the Raiders were able pressure the signal caller a week ago.  

 

The defense made big plays throughout the game, keeping one of the best quarterbacks in the nation, Velton Gardner, from making big plays. CHS senior safety Campbell LaPluma came down with two interceptions, which were supported by multiple tackles by the Cowboys defense.

 

“The boys have fought very hard,” Coppell coach Mike Dewitt said. “We are going to continue to play the way we have all season.”

 

Tickets for Friday’s game will be sold at the gate at Buddy Echols Field for $8.
