The final night of high school summer 7-on-7 football competition was played at the Uvalde High School sports complex located at 750 N. Camp St. on Wednesday, June 19.

Uvalde’s two teams – the Maroon team and the White team – were each scheduled to play the Del Rio Blue team, the Del Rio White team, and La Pryor.

Results from the action were not available at presstime.

In 7-on-7 football competition last Saturday, on June 15, the Uvalde Maroon team lost a narrow 28-27 game in tournament final action.

Prior to that game, the Uvaldeans topped Carrizo Springs, 35-0, in a semi-final matchup.

In the lineman challenge staged last Saturday, Carrizo Springs finished in first place, while Uvalde took runner-up honors.

UHS football players are participating in the summer UHS strength and conditioning program.

Fall workouts for Uvalde High School varsity and junior varsity football players will commence on Aug. 12.

On Aug. 1, there will be a meeting for the players and parents of UHS football players in John H. Harrell Auditorium.

Because UHS participated in spring football workouts last month, UHS will have only one scrimmage opponent prior to the start of the 2019 regular season.

UHS will host the Hondo Owls in scrimmage action set for Aug. 22 in the Honey Bowl.

The Coyotes will kick off their 2019 varsity regular-season football schedule on Thursday, Aug. 29, when they take on the Class 6A Eagle Pass Eagles at Cozel Foster Veterans Memorial Stadium in Eagle Pass.

That game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.

The season opener will mark the first of two Thursday night games for the Coyotes in 2019.

Uvalde will face the Boerne Champion Chargers in a Thursday night District 14-5A Division II contest on Oct. 24 at Boerne.

That football game will be televised by San Antonio Channel 35 KMYS as part of their Thursday Night Lights program.

On Sept. 6, the Coyotes will make their season home debut when they host the Eagle Pass Winn Mavericks in the Honey Bowl.

Kick-off time for that game is set for 7:30 p.m.

Other home games for the Coyotes in 2019 will include: Southwest, Sept. 13; Alamo Heights, Sept. 27; Medina Valley, Oct. 18; and Kennedy, Nov. 1.
