|Football: 2010 schedule hints by Scott Farrell||Comment (0)|
I spoke with HP football coach Randy Allen at halftime of tonight's boys basketball game, and, surprise, we talked football.
The Scots have two of their three non-district games apparently set for the 2010 and 2011 seasons. HP is already contracted to open both seasons taking on Everman in the Tom Landry Classic. Beyond that, Allen said he's got a verbal agreement to play Sherman, and may also agree to play Prepa Tec, a team out of Monterey, Mexico, in non-district action the next two years. Sherman has been a frequent opponent on HP's schedules in years past, and the Everman-Sherman combination would seriously upgrade HP's non-district slate from previous seasons.
Prepa Tec played at Allen the past two seasons, losing 35-21 this fall, and has made a handful of other visits to take on D/FW teams in the past. Allen said he's consider playing Prepa Tec in order to guarantee HP has at least five home games each season, with the assumption HP is realigned into an eight-team district next spring and has only three non-district dates available. Prepa Tec would come to Highlander Stadium both seasons.
All scheduling is unofficial until at least Feb. 1, 2010, which Allen said is the first day that binding contracts can be signed.
