District 2-4A Division I: Week 1 Report

Mitch McLemore

Midland Greenwood 21, Big Spring 12 — Coach Mitch McLemore’s Steers looked good in their opener, holding a strong Greenwood offense to just three touchdowns while putting up 355 yards of total offense.

Most of that production came through the air, where sophomore quarterback Ethan Cortez hit on 16 of 27 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. That Big Spring’s quarterback play was so solid against a talented and experienced defense is a good sign for the Steers going forward because this is a team with a lot of skill talent around that position.

Mark my words: Big Spring’s losing streak, which hit 26 games with Friday’s loss, is coming to an end in the near future — perhaps even this week at Sweetwater.
