The Uvalde Coyotes will top off their second week of pre-season football workouts on Thursday with a football scrimmage against the Hondo Owls in the Honey Bowl.
The varsity teams will scrimmage at 6:30 p.m., while the sub-varsity teams will meet at 5 p.m.
For the varsity Coyotes and the junior varsity Coyotes, the Hondo scrimmage will be their only pre-season action prior to the start of the regular season.
The Coyotes participated in spring football back in May and under University Interscholastic League rules, they are eligible to play only one scrimmage contest.
Because of spring football, the varsity and junior varsity Coyotes began their fall workouts one week later under UIL rules.
Hondo will enter the action against the Coyotes Thursday night coming off a Friday night scrimmage against the Pleasanton Eagles at Pleasanton.
They began their football workouts one week earlier than the Coyotes.
Coach Brett Ratliff’s Owls are a pre-season pick to win the District 14-5A Division II football title this season.
Last year, the Owls finished in a three-way tie with the Crystal City Javelinas and the Devine Warhorses for first place in the district race.
