Post Welcomes the Golden Tors
Week 1 Football Preview
Published Sept. 6, 2012 @ 6 a.m.
For the second week in a row, the Post Bold Gold Antelopes (1-0) match-up with another team wearing black and gold, the Lamesa Golden Tornadoes.
The District 2-2A, Division I team starts a rebuilding year with new Head Coach David Ritchey. Last week the Tors (0-1) lost their opening game to Littlefield, 46-13 while the Bold Gold are coming off an impressive win over Morton, 31-7.
The JV game is at Lamesa on Thursday at 6:00 p.m. The JV Lopes won their opener against Levelland, 26-12.
Coach Ritchey comes to Lamesa from Clyde. The senior heavy Tornadoes of 2011 left this years team with just seven returning starters.
According to Post's Coach Steve Smith Lamesa has "advantages in size and numbers." The Tors are showing 35 players on the varsity roster with fifteen over 200 pounds and one of those, Bobby Trevino, tipping the scales at 305. Expect Lamesa to run the pass intensive spread offense.
The game broadcast will be available at PostSportsRadio.com. The pregame starts at 7:10 and kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. The webcast can be listened to on computers, tablets and smart phones. So the game can be heard by those at the game.
