The bands were warming up, the cheerleaders were chattering, and the green and gold football helmets of the McCollum Cowboys shined in the evening sun. It was just the beginning of the 2012-2013 football season. MHS faced off against the Jefferson Mustangs at Alamo Stadium on Thursday, August 30 in both team’s season opener.
The coin toss landed in Jefferson’s favor but after that it was a fight to the finish. The mighty Cowboys were able to hold the line and force a punt. The green and gold’s offensive line took the field and got on the scoreboard first. It wasn’t easy as the Mustangs battled for ground but in the end the Cowboys rode to a 22-21 victory.
