The Coppell football team hosts Lewisville tomorrow at 7 p.m. at Buddy Echols Field as the Cowboys are coming off a 35-27 loss to Hebron in the District 6-6A home opener.

The Cowboys (2-3 overall and 1-1 in district) have faced obstacles, both offensively and defensively. The Fighting Farmers are also 1-1 in District 6-6A but have a better overall record, going 4-1 this season. Coppell will also deal with the loss of senior quarterback Kevin Shuman, who was pulled from the previous game with a fractured foot. Coppell junior Ryan Walker will step up once again to serve as the leader of the Cowboy’s offense. 

“[Lewisville has] a really good quarterback, their offense is really dangerous,” Coppell junior kicker Ty Reid said. “Their defense is pretty good too. It’s going to be a good game.”

Coppell mounted a comeback against Hebron, but fell short and the team is hoping to eliminate mistakes moving forward – notably presnap penalties.

“The team has been working every day,” Reid said. “Going to practice, getting ready, preparing for another week – it’s the same old same old. The biggest thing [to work on] is probably the snap penalties before the play even starts or personal fouls.”
