Randall football facing tough test with Snyder defense coming off back-to-back shutouts

AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - The Randall Raiders football team will be back home this week after picking up their first win of the season out in Clovis.

However, Randall’s stacked non-district schedule doesn’t let up this week as they welcome in the Snyder Tigers.

Not only is Snyder 2-0 this season, they haven’t allowed a single point so far this year; outscoring their first two opponents 72-0.

“They fly around on defense.” Raiders head coach Dan Sherwood said of Snyder. “They caused six turnovers the last game, I think they’ve caused ten so far this year and it’s just, they’ve got great effort.”

The Randall offense put up 50 points against Clovis, finding a groove in the second quarter after posting just seven points in the first.

“We don’t need to force anything.” Junior WR/DB Collin Miller said of the team’s mindset heading into this week’s game. “Obviously, like coach said [forcing] a lot more turnovers than what we have been getting, and just do us.”

Last year’s meeting between these two went Snyder’s way with a 41-6 win over Randall.

Action starts at 7:00 pm on Thursday night over at Happy State Bank Stadium. You can find coverage on NewsChannel10 on Thursday during the News at 10 and Friday with The Wrap Up show.
