Sterling City #4 in DCTF Preseason rankings

Coach Sisco says this is the deepest roster he has had as the Eagles head coach

Sterling City is gearing up for another season with hype around the team. Sitting at #4 in the Dave Campbell Texas Football preseason rankings, coach Sisco says that the ranking will not be an influence on his teams mentality heading into a new year.

"The last few years we've been up there and ranked in the top... I think we figured out the last few years that it doesn't matter where you are in the beginning of the seasn, it matters where you are at the end of the season."

The Eagles are returning six seniors who received a lot of playing time last season. This is a team who is going to focus on their speed and less of their size.

"This is one of the deepest teams I've coaches here at Sterling City. I don't think there is a whole lot of drop off after the first guy if we send someone else in there to take his place," coach added.

While there is a lot of uncertainty across the world of sports right now with leagues and conferences being postponed or canceled, high school football in West Texas is still a go.

"We can only control what we can control; what we practice and how we practice. The outside factors are things we can't control. We talked a lot about that on the first day of practice. Every day we will come in here and get better and prepare like any other year."
