Better Numbers at Southwestern Heights

Brock Kappelmann - August 23, 2021 7:01 am

There are more red helmets darting around practice at Southwestern Heights this season.  The Mustangs have 35 out for football after numbers dipped to as low as 16 at the end of last year’s Covid plagued season.  SWH has 14 freshmen out for football.  The Mustangs have six starters back on both sides of the ball from last year’s team which went 1-8.  Fourth year head coach Matt Bell also has former Heights head coach and current athletic director Matt Scripsick on staff.

Some of the key Mustangs are Sr. OT/DT Junior Gonzalez, Sr. RB/LB Memo Flores, Jr. C/DE Kaleb Scripsick, Jr. QB/LB Parker Wurtz, Sr. OT/DT Luis Temores, Sr. OG/DT Luis Mendoeza, and  Sr. OLB/WR Sergio Chavez.  The Mustangs are excited about what Flores accomplished in the off season.  Flores squatted 500 pounds in July.

The Mustangs are featured during the Sportsguys on Monday morning on 1270, 92.3 FM , and kscbnews.net.
