“I like that we have two quarterbacks and all, but it is weird trying to switch from catching missiles from Sawyer (Rice) and catching lobs by Boston (White),” seventh-grade player Cooper Edwards said. “I feel like we should play Sawyer because he can see the field better and because Boston is an elite wide receiver.”

Jayce Ramirez said he was proud of the seventh-grade team.

“The game went great,” Ramirez said. “Everybody did their jobs with only a few mistakes.”

The next game for the Duncan football teams will against the Lawton Central Cougars on Monday in Duncan. The seventh-grade game starts at 5 p.m.
