MULESHOE, TX (KCBD) - For the first time in five years, the Muleshoe Mules had a losing season where they started the 2017 campaign 0-4 but got hot in District play and made a run in the playoffs.
In the playoffs, the team finished the year 5-7 and lost to Merkel in the area round.
Plus, for the first time in over 20 years, the Mules enter the new season with a new head coach.
As Lee Walker was hired back in January to lead this powerful pigskin program.
"Coach Wood was here over 20-years and the program is what it is because of him, and this community and the coaches he has had over the years," Walker said. "Great winning and hardworking culture, and it's our job to keep it going. You know, whether it is this year's seniors or the coaches. It is our job now to keep it going."
