The Longhorns (0-0, 2-4) open District 5 1A-2 play by hosting Dell City (0-1, 2-4) in a 7:30 p.m. game Friday. The Longhorns then play at Sanderson (0-1, 4-1) Oct. 26; at home vs. Grandfalls-Royalty (1-0, 5-2) Nov. 2 and at Sierra Blanca (1-0, 4-1) on Nov. 9.
Buena Vista is coming off its open week. First-year head coach Dale Pustejovsky said the team took the open week to heal and work on things in need of improvement and continuing to implement his smash-mouth approach to the game.
“I think they do understand our approach,” he said. “But it’s one thing to understand and another thing to actually do it. The hard thing is continuing to hit hard play-in, play-out on every down for the whole game.”
The Longhorns running game will be opposed by a pass-oriented Dell City team.
