WYLIE — The Pirates open District 6-6A competition Friday against a Panther team that didn’t look too good during its Sept. 9 non-district finale against Arlington.
In that game, PESH was thoroughly outplayed by the Colts in a 47-29 loss that dropped Plano East to 1-2 overall. However, Wylie head coach Bill Howard said that result is irrelevant.
“In preseason, you can throw that out,” Howard said. “High school football is about match ups. We’ve beaten some of the best teams in the state (in the past), and turned right around and played right down to someone else’s talent, or even got upset. We have to work on our match ups, just like they have to work on their match ups against us.”
He added, “You have an extra week to prepare (6-6A bye for all teams), so the coaching staffs are working hard and preparing.”
