Brownwood Lions suffered a disappointing loss to the Wylie Bulldogs Friday night in a 42-7 loss. Brownwood Head Football Coach Chuck Howard stated that he was extremely disappointed.
Howard explained that in a district that is as good as Brownwood’s, players have to come out to every game ready to play. In some districts that do not have this amount of top rated teams in the state, Howard stated that a team can have a week they don’t play their best and still pull out a win.
“In our district, we are one of top two (4A districts) in the state, you can’t afford to not show up and win,” said Howard.
Howard stated that he was disappointed in how the Lions played on both sides of the football.
