F’ball 2-a-days looming

It’s football time in Texas again, and the Hornets will begin the 2014 season with two-a-day practices Monday, Aug. 11.
Azle, again led by Devon Dorris, will hit the field for two weeks then will play its only scrimmage, at home against Burleson Friday, Aug. 22.
After school starts Monday, Aug. 25, practices move to after school.
The varsity Hornets have a quirky schedule this year.
Azle opens at home against Granbury Friday, Aug. 29 then will play just one more home game until Oct. 17.
In between, the Hornets head for Waxahachie to face Red Oak in the Dale Hansen Football Classic on Sept. 5.
That’s followed by non-district trips to Cleburne (Sept. 12), an open date, and the District 5-5A opener at Boswell in the resumption of the Take the Lake series.
Finally, on Oct. 3, Azle will return to Hornet Field to host Saginaw on Junior High Night.
