In a season full of challenges, the Wylie football team will be facing one of its toughest yet this week, when it hits road for its District 3-5A Division II opener against No. 8 Wichita Falls Rider.
But coming off a three-week layoff due to COVID-related schedule changes, the Bulldogs are just glad to be talking about on-field obstacles again.
Idle since Oct. 2 after having nondistrict games against Cooper and Amarillo Palo Duro canceled and a district matchup with Plainview postponed to the end of the season, Wylie will have no time to ease back into the swing of things against the 4-1 Raiders. But that’s of little concern to the Bulldogs players and coaches, who are just thrilled to be playing anyone at this point.
