Teague Lion Football: Rough Patch For the LionsMonday, September 08, 2008 By Katy Curry
Since completing 2-A-Days in the gruesome Texas heat the Teague Lions are pumped up and ready for the season to be in full swing. This year the Lions are in District 20-2 along with Marlin, Rosebudd-Lott, Leon, Hearne, and Franklin. The Lions have chosen the Leon Cougars as their opponent to demolish for Homecoming.

Leading and taming the ferrous Lions this season is Head Coach Kevin Hayes.

The Lions opened non-district play on Friday August 29, 2008 against the New Waverly Bulldogs. The Lions lost the game 33-20, but they put out a tremendous effort. The Lion then took on the Groesbeck Goats on Friday September 5, 2008. The Lions also dropped this game 38-21. Once again the Lions played great, but just came up short. Good Luck to the Lions!
