After an open week, the rested Weir Lions are ready to step back on the gridiron.
The Lions have not had an easy 2012 season residing in the tough Class 1A Region 3, District 4.
Weir’s lone win this year came at the beginning of the season against the Class 2A J.Z. George Jaguars, 21-20. Weir has yet to clinch a district win.
Led by senior quarterback Tyler Henson, Weir is anticipating their season to turn around. Along with Henson, the Lions will look to senior running backs Darius Brown and Willie Miller, junior running back Jermy Miller and freshman wide receivers Mello Woodard and Danny Woodard.
The Lions’ final four games of the season begin this Thursday night against the Sebastopol Bobcats.
The following week Weir will hit the road to Ethel to take on the Tigers (2-6, 0-5) while returning home in a matchup against the West Lowndes Panthers (3-4, 2-2). The last game on the schedule the Lions will travel to Crawford in a Thursday night meeting against the East Oktibbeha Titans (2-5, 1-3).
The Bobcats hold a 2-5 overall record and are 1-4 in district play. Sebastopol was recently defeated by the Nanih Waiya Warriors, 31-28.
Kickoff will be at 7:00 p.m.
