Buckaroos get helmets ready for Friday night

As the Buckaroos prepare to head into Friday night’s game against the Cisco Loboes, the varsity players and coaches took time out of their busy preparation schedule to join the players’ dads and other family members in what is becoming an annual tradition – helping their sons put decals on their football helmets.

Hubble said he organized “Decals with Dad” last year because he wanted the players’ dads, uncles, moms and others to experience what he and his coaches get to see every day.

 “I wanted to be able to share the program with everybody,” he said. “It’s not just about us, kids, coaches; it’s about this community. A lot of these men played here, so it’s kind of a neat deal to come back and help your son put a sticker on his helmet and spend that time with him.”

Hubble told the crowd the reason he wanted to start doing something like this each year was because he has a great respect for the amount of time he and the coaching staff get to spend with the young men.  

“I know some of y’all wish y’all had more time with them,” he said. “Tonight, really all I want you to do is get your decals on your helmet and get to spend a little time with these young men.”

Hubble said he was really pleased with Wednesday night’s turnout. This is the second year they have held the event.

Meanwhile, Hubble said he feels good about Friday night’s game. He said that while it’s early in the season and it’s not going to look like playoff football during the first game, the energy was good for the last day of physical work and he was excited and ready to play somebody.

He said the Buckaroo’s offense is little different this year. He said they have been a flexbone option team and they’re moving more to a spread attack.

“Hopefully we can throw the ball a little better than we have in the past but still concentrate on running the football as well,” he said.  

The tempo for the games this year is going to be a little faster than in the past, Hubble said, but they will also have the ability to speed up and slow down the pace of the game, depending on what they need as far as clock management.

“There will be times when it could last a little longer because of throwing the ball,” he said.

The Buckaroos take on the Cisco Loboes at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1, at the Buckaroo stadium.
