SAN ANGELO, TX — Coach Brent Davis and the Central High School Bobcats have returned from Euless Trinity and have their sights set on long-time rival Abilene.
In his Monday press conference, Davis briefly touched on the game against the Trojans before going into this week’s matchup. He mentioned how pleased he was was his team’s effort and stated that the decision to pull his starters out of the game was to prevent unnecessary injuries.
He was also asked how he felt having two of the best teams in the district (Weatherford and Trinity) in the rear view mirror (1:15).
Davis moved on from Trinity with some Abilene rivalry talk (2:10). He broke down what fans can expect from them in regards to their talent level and play calling. He said they have “West Texas kids” and compared them to the Bobcats in their toughness, work ethic, and passion (6:45).
San Angelo Live’s Manny Diaz then asked the coach about some rumors swirling around this coming year’s district realignment. In response, Davis said it was no secret they will not be in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Where they will be, though, is anyone’s guess at this point.
Davis did mention that their fate could depend on where Amarillo Tascosa ends up. Tascosa, Davis said, could be heading down to 5A which would open up the possibility of bringing back the Little Southwest Conference. If not, the Bobcats could be looking at Killeen, Waco, or San Antonia as its new home.
Lastly, the coach talked about how excited he was about returning to San Angelo Stadium and playing in front of their home crowd (10:00), what impressed him at the halfway mark of the season, and some prevailing issues his team continues to face (12:10).
