The Cuero Gobblers (3-0) will face the Calhoun Sandcrabs (1-2) on Sept. 19 in Gobbler Stadium. These two teams, currently 1-1 against one another, have not faced each other since 2011.
From 1999-2005 Calhoun did not know what a winning season looked like, that is until coach Richard Whitaker took over in 2005. After a 2-8 losing season and a realignment into a new district the Sandcrabs are 65-14. Last year Calhoun was a state semifinalist in the 4A DII finishing the season 13-2.
Calhoun will be top heavy with experience with 33 seniors, 11 juniors and six sophomores. Key contributers for the Sandcrabs may be #79 Jorge Rios, #7 J.C. Garcia, #8 Elijah Velasquez, #10 Taylor Lee, and #24 Skyler Blinka.
