Falcons Push to 3-0, 34-14 Over the Stallions

It was the first Friday night game of the year for the Falcons. The North Mesquite Stallions, led by stand out QB Luke Sedar, came into town with high hopes. The game was sloppy with penalties and miscues according to Head Coach Eric Luster, OC Coach Velasquez, DC Gordon Booker, and SC Mike Idleman. Coach Luster summed it up by saying, “Any time you win, it’s good. But the play was not up to Falcon standards. Penalties, substitution errors, and personal fouls are not our expectation or standard.”

Falcons Gain Momentum Beat Rowlett 42 to 14

All three phases played well and were able to overcome a game time change by the Eagles.” The game was set for 7:30, but for unknown reasons the Eagles changed the start time to 7:00. The entire warm up session for the Falcons was totally disrupted.

Forney Sends Frisco Memorial Packing 62 to 0

Ending their last season with a 2-8 record and a second-to-last standing in their district, the Frisco Memorial Warriors had something to prove going into the ‘23-’24 school year. It would be up to them to rise to the challenge and make their comeback... which they might have had a better chance at doing if their second game of the season wasn’t against the up-andcoming powerhouse that is Forney. While the Warriors were already off to a rocky start with a 28-7 loss against Lakeview Centennial, they were given a crash course in real football when the scoreboard read 62-0 in favor of the Jackrabbits last Friday. Starting their season by putting out a multi-decade rivalry in their first game and dominating against Memorial for the second year in a row in their second game, the Forney Jackrabbits are continuing to gain momentum for a big swing at a state championship title.

Falcons Get Some Payback, Beat Wildcats 55 to 33

With the backdrop of senior night, home opener, 100-degree weather, and facing the Wildcats who were 8-3 beating the Falcons last season, there were some questions on how the Falcons would respond. Head Coach Eric Luster said, “The Falcons had a great offseason and placed first in two team camps this summer. The Falcons also qualified for the state 7 on 7 this summer.” Luster said he was very excited to see the team continuing to keep the winning momentum.
