Clifton heats it up in 7-on-7

By Brett Voss

Although the Bosque County 7-on-7 Summer Football League took a week off for the Fourth of July holiday, some were a little slower getting back from vacation than others.

Consequently, things did not go quite as planned last week when the summer league returned to action for its final two dates on the schedule.

With vacations and baseball tournaments proving too much to overcome, Meridian could not field a team. As a result, Clifton and Valley Mills decided to play a twoteam marathon at Cub Stadium last Thursday.

Playing in his first 7-on-7 action of the summer, Cub returning starting quarterback Hutch Kettler threw for a league-high 311 yards while Fisher Pitts caught 14 passes for 156 yards and TJ Ferch hauled in two touchdown passes as Clifton torched Valley Mills, 31-7, in the first game.

Cubs picked to repeat in 2017

By Brett Voss

Although the Bosque County 11-man football teams have been playing 7-on-7 football since June 22, the 2017 Texas high school football season unofficially began with the recent release of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football 2017.

If this year’s edition proves to be the accurate prognosticator it has become known as since 1960, Bosque County will once again be well-represented in the post-season, with defending District 11-3A, Division II champion Clifton leading the way.

Seeking their fourth consecutive playoff berth, the Cubs will not be alone as DCTF picks the Class 2A Meridian Yellowjackets to make their third straight postseason appearance, while six-man schools Walnut Springs and Iredell will battled it out for the District 14-1A, Division II title on their way to playoff berths.

“Overall, I was pleased,” Clifton football head coach Chuck Caniford said. “I thought we played much better than the first week. We did a much better job defensively and were a little more consistent on offense.”
