Making strides

Despite not qualifying for the Texas State 7on7 Championships for the first time since 2016, Cuero showed that they’re not only moving in the right direction but also have their focus on fall football.

With no returners from last summer’s 7on7 team and a new quarterback for the third straight season [Chase Blackwell and JD Notaro], Cuero’s youth showed promise, but they know they have work to do before the season starts.

“We just gotta keep on practicing, coming up here during the summer time and working hard,” sophomore Cavan Smith said.

Smith will be one of Cuero’s limited varsity returners this fall.

“This really helped us out by getting us back in shape, because we start strength and conditioning in a couple of days,” he said. “We have to get our bodies right.”

Knowing that nearly 30 players from last year’s state championship football team have graduated, a learning curve will be in order, but they’re up to the challenge.
