Yesterday we spoke with Brandon Schafer, the Athletic Director at Mexico High School. The home opener football game against Centralia is Friday at 7. He mentioned a few players who should be on the radar, Quarterback Ty Sims, and running backs, Morgan Grubb, Andrew Runge, and Anthony Shivers.
The Booster Club will be having a tailgate party from 5 – 7 with ribeye sandwiches, cheeseburgers, and hotdogs. Please come support the team and the Boosters, who provide scholarships and all manner of equipment and practice jerseys, warm ups, etc.
Schafer says the district is working on a sports specific website that should be up sometime in September. Other upcoming events include the Softball Back to School Classic. Mexico will face rivals Webster Groves, Pacific, and Helias this Friday and Saturday in Sullivan.
