Sharing a district with five teams that made the playoffs a year ago, including a pair of ranked squads in Class 2A Division II No. 5 Albany and 12th-ranked Hamlin, the Cross Plains Buffaloes will have to fight tooth and nail for their trip to the postseason this fall.
Fortunately for the school’s fans, coach Daniel Purvis feels his Buffs are up to that task.
With 13 lettermen back from from a 6-5 team, including six offensive and seven defensive starters, Cross Plains will send a talented and experienced group into battle. And the Buffs have every intention of leaving the fray with one of District 7-2A DII’s four playoff spots.
