Cole returning home to face Sulphur
By Jason Kersey
A game that has been a little overlooked this week is the District 3A-2 clash between Plainview and Sulphur.
Both teams are 3-0, and both have been very impressive in those wins. Sulphur shut Davis out, which is no small feat, and Plainview’s passing game has been flying high with junior quarterback Brandon Allen and superstar senior receiver Justin Blackmon.
In the three games, Blackmon has caught 17 passes for 441 yards and five touchdowns.
As if the game needed any more storylines, it’s a homecoming of sorts for Plainview coach Corey Cole.
Cole grew up in Sulphur, played there and was an assistant there the last three seasons.
“It’s gonna be weird and it’s gonna be different,” Cole said. “I grew up on that other sideline, but it’s definitely going to be exciting; it’s a new challenge. I’m looking forward to it. It’s like I’ve left the wings of coach Dixon (Sulphur’s coach) and now I’m coming back with my guys.”
