Pigskin Preview: Lamesa Golden Tornadoes

LAMESA, Texas (KCBD) - The Lamesa Golden Tornadoes enter 2019 with a lot of excitement for high school football. Despite coming off a 3-7 season, numbers are up and Head Coach Rodney Sims had kids buying into his system and plan, plus add in a new turf football field and Lamesa is ready to roll. The motto on their shirts says Brothers.

Lamesa is looking to jump up and surprise some people this season. Super impressed with what Coach Rodney Sims is doing out here!

Everybody is not having a great day sometimes so it’s not just about football. We are excited about everything that’s coming.”
