BCP GAME OF THE WEEK: Bangs dominates Hawley to stay unbeaten

BANGS — Facing one of the biggest, strongest small-school teams in the area on Friday, there was some question if the Bangs Dragons could remain undefeated after squaring off with Hawley on Friday. 

The Dragons (4-0) delivered the answer fairly quickly, dominating the Bearcats 39-15 in the Big Country Preps Game of the Week. 

Ethan Cortez threw for 238 yards and rushed for 158 and two scores to lead Bangs, which took a 26-7 lead into locker room at the break. Ethan Sanchez led the Dragons in scoring, rushing for 95 yards and four touchdowns on 13 carries.

Jacee Miller isn’t used to watching the action from afar.   

The Bangs junior is a four-sport standout who has been on varsity since she began high school. Miller never leaves the floor for the Lady Dragons’ volleyball team.  

But after snapping her fibula and tearing a ligament during a summer trip to the beach, the vocal Miller has been forced to do all her encouraging and observing from the sidelines.  

“It’s a very different perspective,” Miller said. “Watching my team grow and watching its up and downs has helped me see what I can do when I come back.”

Bangs football’s eye in the sky never lies

One could say it gives a football coach a bird’s-eye view.

Others compare it to the overhead view of the gridiron that one gets while playing a video game — displaying a play’s full development on both sides of the football.

At any rate, the soft hum one hears on the Bangs practice field represents a high tech coaching aide used by a growing number of schools nationwide: a drone, armed with a camera and operated by a student manager, allows coach Kyle Maxfield to quickly dissect what went right (or wrong) with every single practice play during film study.

Bangs, Maxfield starting from scratch

After his sudden and unexpected departure from Brownwood to take the Bangs job in February, coach Kyle Maxfield put himself in a position to build a program from the ground up.
