Beaver Prepares to Open Play in 8 Man
Brock Kappelmann - August 20, 2019 1:35 pm
The Beaver Dusters are now an eight man school. As the Dusters settle into class B Oklahoma, the reality sets in that they still have a tough row to hoe. They don’t have to find eleven players at a time to place on the field anymore, but they will play a rigorous schedule in B-1 while finding their sea legs in the 8 man universe. Plus, the 2019 Dusters inherit a 28 game losing streak dating to a win over Stanton County early in the 2016 season.
Beaver still has a numbers problem which have caused them much of their recent on field issues. They only have 15 out for football and spent much of the first week of practice with eight guys. Second year head coach Titus Burrell says his team made gains at the Shattuck camp and the Canton passing league this summer.
Two senior lineman lead the team as Nick Almond and Alan Garcia anchor the line. It is a junior laden team with nine 11th graders on the squad. Other key Dusters are Jr. FB/LB Zacc Huggs, Jr. TB/S Spokes Johnson, and Jr. TE/DE Clay Pugh.
Beaver was featured during the Sportsguys Tuesday morning.
