Plainview hopes to avoid OU's fate
By Jason Kersey
Plainview faces an eerily similar situation to what OU faced last week.
Heading into their game against Colorado, the Sooners were likely a little unfocused, thinking about this week’s game against Texas. And OU paid for it with a shocking 27-24 loss to Colorado, who was supposed to be a pushover.
Plainview plays Friday against Dickson, a school that’s just about 15 minutes away and is a rival. But coach Corey Cole hopes his team isn’t thinking too much about what looms in Week 7: Purcell.
“We haven’t lost to Dickson in a long time, and on the horizon you’ve got Purcell, so we’re trying to keep the kids focused,” Cole said.
Plainview has a bone to pick with Purcell from 2006 — the 15-14 loss to the Dragons last year cost Plainview a district title.
“(The Dickson) game is the most important one we’ve played all year,” Cole said.
Cole said the OU-Colorado upset couldn’t have come at a better time for Plainview, because the coaches have been using it for motivation.
“Colorado was not a bad football team,” Cole said. “But OU was supposed to win big.”
