Lubbock Loses Opener

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

If you listen closely, you can almost hear Dandy Don Meredith singing "turn out the lights, the party's over".

You may ask, what the heck are you talking about?

Quite simply, Lubbock head coach football coach Jason Strunk, who's doubling as a High School Football America correspondent this year to give us all an inside look at his program, texted me after his team's opening game tonight against Canyon and said, "jumped out to 21-7 lead. Lights blew out at the stadium. Slowed us down. Tied 21 at half. Then had 4 picks in the second half. Lost 48-21."

I texted back, "the old blackout trick".

Bottom line, the Westerners' losing streak moved to 23 after the power failure that may have taken some of the juice out of Lubbock's early lead.

Can't wait to see what Coach Strunk writes tomorrow on the next installment of The Turnaround, an inside look at Lubbock.

In the meantime, check-out the game story from Lee Passmore of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal by clicking here.
