Comfort is formidable foe for Bulldogs Friday night

It’s another big game for the Brady Bulldogs who travel south about 90 miles to face the Comfort Bobcats. The Dogs enter the contest with a 4-4 season record. They are 2-1 in District 8-2A. Comfort is 5-3 on the season and 2-1 in district. Of the games the Bobcats won are Ingram, 26-0; Marion, 48-7; San Antonio Cornerstone, 62-7; Junction, 40-17; and Mason, 30-15. Losses are Devine, 41-12; Navarro, 49-21; and Blanco, 49-36. Brady has played three common foes’Ingram, Mason and Blanco.The Bulldogs defeated Ingram, 56-7; Mason, 48-2; and they lost to Blanco, 18-13. What this appears to be is a big scoring game facing Brady’s defense against Comfort’s offense. “We are facing a team that is a metroplex-type team. They will lineup in a one-back shotgun formation, and they never huddle up,” Brady coach Jones said. The Bobcats favor the passing game over the running game. “Their quarterback Travis Chrisman (6-3, 218) is a fine passer, and he may be better than last year’s super star, Luke Roberts,” Jones said. “Chrisman’s favorite receiver is Vance Lich, and their best running back is J. Frank Debry,” he added. Comfort coach Lee Wigington said the Bobcats will be athletic on defense with LB Travis Saur, who had 70 tackles last season. The Bulldogs are playing with lots of confidence, having shut out Sonora last week, 32-0. The winner of the game will have a leg up on second place in the district since both teams are currently 2-1 entering the last two ball games. In discussing the game last Wednesday, Jones said that outside linebacker Jon Langseth, who injured a knee last week against Sonora is out for this game. “We had conflicting reports from the doctors. One said the injury was an ACL, and another said it was only bruised,” the coach said. Langseth will do rehab and may be ready for the Junction game on Nov. 10. Last year the Bobcats defeated the Bulldogs, 43-25. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Friday (tonight) in Comfort.
