COLEMAN — After seeing their football team robbed of a would-be playoff berth by COVID-19 a year ago, the Coleman Bluecats entered 2021 determined to make up for lost time. And they were off to a pretty good start with a 2-0 record and convincing wins over Miles (24-0 in one quarter) and Anson (33-6).
Unfortunately, an old nemesis has crept back into the picture.
Slated to play at Brady (2-0) in what was to be Big Country Preps’ Game of the Week on Friday, the Bluecats received word on Wednesday that Brady had to cancel the varsity game due to COVID-19. Coleman scrambled to find a replacement game, but was unable to find an available team on short notice. They are, therefore, taking an unscheduled bye week, just as the program was seeing its momentum on a real upswing.
