I know he's moved-on to other things, but I sure do miss Brian Reed's statistics and commentary on Cowboy football. Since the season has now started and is 2 games in, I'll try to get things going.

First off, congratulations to the Custer County Cowboys for a great start to the season! 2-0 is as good as can be expected. They started out by beating rival Glendive 38-7, and then last weekend they pounded Hardin 41-0. It was announced that Livingston/Park high has forfeited their games for the year due to not having enough players to field a varsity team, so that's already a win as well. From the box scores, it appears that their QB in Carson Hunter is a very good passer, that his favorite target is Jess Bellows, and that Adian Barrows can both run and catch to put points on the board. It also seems the Cowboys are very solid on defense, though I haven't been able to find names of standout players from the info I have.

Of course, The Cowboys have not gotten into the "meat" of their schedule just yet. They still have to face Billings Central and Laurel (Locos are next) which are traditionally among the stronger opponents in the conference. Sidney has also improved in recent years and I'm told Lewistown has a good team this year - though the Golden Eagles did lose to Billings Central last weekend 17-7. Belgrade is no longer an opponent to be concerned with as they have now moved up to AA.

So I will ask this: what's the talk of the town? I'd be interested to hear from anyone who has attended/will attend any of the games. How are they looking? Who are some other standout players I haven't named? Does it look like it will be another playoff year based on what we've seen so far this season?

BEST OF LUCK to the Cowboys!

I understand Jeff Regan is the head coach. I think he'll do a great job!
