Football is just around the corner, and we at BigCountryPreps.com are committed to bringing you the information you need to prepare for your favorite team’s season.
We’ll be releasing our Big Country Preps Preseason Football Preview, the most comprehensive look at the upcoming Big Country football season anywhere, on Wednesday, Aug. 16. But you won’t have to wait until then to sate your gridiron appetite.
Leading up to the first day of fall football practice on July 31, we’ll be spotlighting each 11-man team in the area and posing some of the key questions they’ll face in 2023 as part of our annual “Countdown to Two-a-Days” series.
We move to Class 3A Division I with the Breckenridge Buckaroos. On Thursday we will take a look at the Clyde Bulldogs, followed by the Jim Ned Indians on Friday.
LAST YEAR’S RECORD
- 8-3 overall, 3-2 District 3-3A Division I
ONE KEY STAT
- Breckenridge’s eight wins last season were the Buckaroos’ most since going 9-3 in 2010.
TWO NAMES TO KNOW
- Senior QB/DB Cam Escalon (Passed for 425 yards and 5 touchdowns and had 60 tackles, 2 interceptions and 18 pass breakups in 2022)
- Senior WR/DB Alexis Franco (Received for 232 yards and 3 touchdowns and had 124 tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 3 interceptions and 12 pass breakups in 2022)
THREE BURNING QUESTIONS
- Can the Buckaroos build on the success they experienced a year ago?
- Will Breckenridge be able to take advantage of the speed it has the skill positions?
- How much support will call-ups from BHS’ 10-0 junior varsity squad provide this fall?
