Mustang opener …

Last Saturday saw the Meeker Mustangs youth football team travel to Rifle for the season opener against the boys from Glenwood Springs. Putting four weeks of hard work and learning into action, the third- and fourth-grade boys took the field against a much bigger Glenwood team. Starting with a four and out defensive effort in the first series of downs, the Mustangs never looked back in a 12-0 victory. Coaches attribute good old fashioned hard work and paying attention as keys to success. The fifth- and sixth-grade Mustangs came out strong and proud. A skilled Glenwood quarterback made a big difference in the final score as Meeker could not quite put things together on the field. Coaches look forward to a week of hard work in practice, and finding victory next week in Basalt. Mustang captains Cameron Hanberg (15), Josh Smith (49) and Said Valleriano (20) attended the coin toss of the Mustangs’ opener in Rifle. courtesy photo
