Cuero Opens Pre-Season Football Workouts

Posted: Updated:

As high schools around the Lone Star State begin their practice training schedules for fall sports, Cuero football opened up preseason workouts on Monday at 7 am. Early in the practice, Max Preps Preseason All-American Jordan Whittington left the field for the locker room with an apparent groin injury. Head coach Travis Reeve said Whittington is nursing the injury and will be day-to-day. 

The 2018-19 Gobblers feature five returning starters on both offense and defense from last year's team that made it all the way to the regional finals. The team's experience is one of the big reasons the Mean Green were picked number two overall in Dave Campbell's Texas Football Magazine State 4A Division II preseason poll. Lofty expectations aside, Coach Reeve told Don Brubaker there is still much work to be done. 

"Expectations are always high here in Cuero because of the great tradition over the years Cuero has had," Reeve said. "We're excited to be talked about in the mix. But at the same time we understand we have a lot of work to do to be the kind of football team that we want to be."

Cuero football's first preseason scrimmage will come the night of August 18th against Canyon Lake at Gobbler Stadium. Reeve has said that barring injury, Michael Barta will be the team's new starting quarterback.
