“There were challenges along the way,” construction and welding teacher Shawn Reed said. “It's like building a house, but it's not. Everything is so small, but you're building it like a house. All the corners and transitions are trickier.”

The Mustangs football teams played their first of two scrimmages prior to the start of the 2019 season on Friday in Lampasas against a talented Badgers squad.
All of the highs and lows of an opening scrimmage were on display as the Mustangs scored a pair of touchdowns but also allowed some big plays on defense.
“I was happy we scored; I was really hoping we would,” Head Coach Brian Herman said with a laugh. “We knew we had a challenge (with Lampasas), and it was really good for us to pick this scrimmage up to see a good spread attack.”
The Mustangs scored on their third possession of the scrimmage as the newly-implemented Slot-T offense started to warm up. . . .
