The Forsan Buffaloes took on Grape Creek and Eldorado in a football scrimmage last Friday. Here, Forsan Head Football Coach and Athletic Director Jason Phillips, told KBest News they team was able to move up and down the field every series.
Coach Phillips told KBest News that the team is ahead of schedule, starting 7 sophomores on defense and 6 on offense. The team has 6 returning seniors, with 2 starting on Offense and 2 starting on defense.
According to Coach Phillips, Forsan will be moving to a 3-4 defense as opposed to the hybrid 4-3 that was run last year.
When asked about this year’s schedule, Phillips stated that it would be tough.
"It's gonna be tough, but that's always on purpose. I mean, we want a tough schedule early. We found out years ago, you know. We'd breeze through easy districts then get to playoffs and take it on the chin [in] the first round," said Coach Phillips. "Especially as tough as our district is, I think the tougher we make that pre-district schedule the better."
