COTULLA COWBOYS FOOTBALL
Winless Javelinas await Cotulla in District 14-4A, Division I opener on Friday.
Cotulla returns to action this week following a week off with rested athletes and a renewed mindset as the team opens league play on the road at Crystal City.
“We definitely had a much needed week off with our main focus being the health of our athletes,” CHS Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Esteban Rodriguez said. “We have made positive strides in getting a few of our starters back to playing form.
“I credit a lot of this to our outstanding training staff, they have done everything they can to properly rehab/treat these athletes. However, as I tell my athletes, football is a violent sport; if played correctly, the majority, if not all of them, will have endured some type of pain at this point in the season. However, I am a firm believer that there is a difference between pain, and injury.”
In prepping for this week, Rodriguez said he and his team are not looking past the Javelinas and their winless record.
“As for Crystal City, I have never been one to get caught up in overall records,” he said. “We respect all opponents and prepare for them just as we do every other team.
Crystal City has always had hard-nosed kids that lay it all on the line Friday nights. We look forward to taking on the Javelinas Friday night, with the hopes of starting district play 1-0.”
Game time at Javelina Stadium is slated for 7 p.m.
