The Levelland Lobo varsity football is set to kick off their fourth season under Head coach Jared Sanderson with two-a-days starting August 1 at the new Lobo Stadium.

Last season the Lobos qualified for the playoffs for the second year straight and repeated as area champions with a 31-30 win over Stephenville.

In the regional round of the playoffs the Lobos season came to an end after a 61-8 loss to Abilene Wylie.

"We will hit the field August 1 in our greys and helmet," said Head Coach Jared Sanderson. "We will workout at the new Lobo Stadium with a start time of about 6:30 a.m.

Coach Sanderson feels his team should come out with a hunter mentality this season.

"As a team, we always have to be the hunters,"explained the coach. "We have to go every Friday and play our best or we might take an unnecessary loss."

"I do feel like we are contenders and we have an opportunity to win a district championship, but if we think we are on top and what we did last year matters then we are wrong."

"As a staff it is our job to keep the guys focused on the now. We have go out and work hard everyday to improve as the season progresses," Sanderson stated.

This season the Lobos will try to bounce and advance past the regional round with a solid group of returning seniors.

"Any time you have a group of seniors returning with three or more years of experience that is always a positive for a team. This is a great senior group and I expect them to come out and show great leadership and character on and off of the field," he said.

"These guys have high expectations for this season so they may feel the pressure at times, but they know how to go out and produce. Most of our seniors have played on varsity before and understand what we expect from them."

The Lobo coaching staff will use the same two-a-day approach they used last season in an attempt to again avoid the Texas heat during the day.

"We will try to avoid heat again with early morning practices.

We also feel that the players are fresh early in the morning," Sanderson stated.

"Morning workouts also gives us time as coaches to watch film during the day, so we can figure out what we need to work on most," Sanderson explained. "We want to make sure we get the most out of every practice."

"We will have two weeks of practice before we hit the field for our first scrimmage August 12 at home against Littlefield," Sanderson added.

Sanderson went on to explain that for his team two-a-day practices are more about getting back in the grove of things and not trying to implement new schemes.

"For us, at the point there will not be any new schemes really. Two-a-day practice for us is about getting back in a groove and building chemistry for different groups," he said.
