The Bobcats look forward to playing home games

After a season of all road games, Refugio will play at home this season

REFUGIO, Texas– Refugio was excited to back on their home field at Jack Sportsman Bobcat Stadium.

The Bobcats didn’t play a single snap on their home field last year since structural damage was found at Jack Sportsman Bobcat Stadium.

Bobcats head coach Jason Herring said it will be nice to have fans in the stands this year and to get to play in front of their home crowd.

“Our stadium is coming around awesome, we’re really grateful to the school board and the community for rebuilding it for us and fixing it up. You take for granted what you have until it’s taken away. Playing every game on the road last year, Thursday night, every seventh grade game, eight grade game, JV game and varsity game was on the road so it was hard on us, it was hard on the kids, so we’re just real excited. I cant wait for that opening first game,” said Herring.

Senior wide receiver Jordan Kelley transitioned from quarterback his freshman year and is looking forward to playing under the bright lights for his final season at home.

“It means a lot. Last year we had to travel every game and just for my senior season being able to play a the stadium where I grew up playing in for my last year it means a lot,” said Kelley.

Refugio comes into the season as the number one ranked team in the state, even over defending champions the Shiner Comanches who are ranked number two.

The Bobcats first game is against Bruni on August 27th and their first home game is September third against George West.
