Sweetwater’s trip to Cisco for its 2018 opener exposed its youth in an unfamiliar situation and setting early on in the team’s 56-7 loss.
But Sweetwater is hosting this year’s game Friday with a still-young team taking the field at 7:30 p.m.
Coach Ben McGehee confirmed the Mustangs will have a lot of kids playing on Friday night for the first time at Mustang Bowl.
“Just being in a familiar place and not having to travel will be a big help,” he said. “We need to settle in early. We need to come out there and execute well on both sides of the ball. We want to get those first-game jitters out early.”
