2-A-DAYS: Groesbeck Goats

GROESBECK, Texas (KWTX) If there's one team in district 9-3A that has the most salt on their tongue, it's the Groesbeck Goats.

After a 5-0 start a year ago, the Goats dropped four of the last five to end the season and effectively missed the playoffs altogether.

But they've got a new head coach in Jerry Bomar. Technically, he's not new to Groesbeck since he led the Goats to a state championship in 1991, but now he takes over for Steve Hale, who left for Hillsboro.

Bomar's quarterback was the backup last year, but now he's ready to roll..

"I like having competition, and having people put stuff on my back," quarterback Zachary Wilson said. "It's fun to me."

The offense should look a tad different as well with a lot more balls thrown in the air opposite the ground game like what they were used to in 2018.

"The (offseason) work has been invaluable," Bomar said. "Our kids are smart here and they're hard workers. Our team is young, everybody is improving. We have yet to see them in full pads. The whole group has to prove themselves. It's not just one group, it's the whole team."
