During the Lockhart game this the Lions broke open a close football game to defeat the Canyon Cougars in the second became a pattern for the who would hang in games with District 264As elite before allowing secondhalf I think the youth and inexperience of our foot ball team showed It wasnt necessarily condi tioning or anything like Canyon Coach Larry Nowotny I didnt ever think it had anything to

a great game against Del Valle and a great game against In we had to sacrifice some of his running ability to get his receiving With Martinez at both Riley and Jeremy McElroy were able to pick up some of the rushing Jeremy and came in and had some big plays rushing the Nowotny The problems at receiver due to injuries and grades which forced Martinez to move to receiver also caused the season of Anthony Bueno to Nowotny Bueno had more than 250 receiving yards in his two best but the Cougars often had trouble getting the ball to the bigplay He did good in the first good in the last game and had trouble in the eight games in Nowotny Especially once we had the injury that made it obvious he was going to get the The Cougars have several skill players such as quarterbacks Marty Robles and
