2015 Mule Preview (8-24-2015)
The summer of 2015 has flown by for students, teachers, administrators and football coaches all of the great state of Texas. School officially started on Monday but the Mules have been officially at work for almost two weeks preparing for the 2015 season.
But the Mules have been working out on their own all summer lifting weights, running, doing agility drills and passing the football.
Excitement has been building all over Muleshoe with the month of August bringing that excitement to a peak with the two Mule scrimmages giving the fans their first real look at any changes the Mules may be making.
The Mules traveled to Idalou to scrimmage the Wildcats August 14 and hosted the Seminole Indians August 20. The Mules scored more times than both the Wildcats and Indians. That always makes the fans feel good their team.
The Mules’ head coach, David Wood, and his staff are the only ones that are really equipped to determine how the Mules actually fared. Coach Wood would say, “We were mostly pleased with how the kids performed. We are always watching for team chemistry as we rotate players in these scrimmages.”
“But at the end of the day these scrimmages are really just another practice for us.”
The Levelland Lobos will be a real test again this year for the Mules in their opening game Friday in Levelland’s new stadium.
“We are looking forward to Friday night and get the season under way,” continued Coach Wood. “The last two years, the out come of those contests came down to the final minute of the game. Levelland won in 2013 but the Mules took the 2014 game.”
“This year should be no different and should prove to be another very exciting night.”
