The traditional Payson vs. Snowflake preseason scrimmage is in the rearview mirror and the Longhorn express is steaming toward the 2011 opener on Aug. 26 at Chino Valley. Last season, the Horns romped over the Cougars 39-6, but PHS second-year coach Byron Quinlan is not expecting a blowout this time around. “They are a much better team than last year and they are very big upfront,” he said. “They run a spread offense and have a quarterback who can scramble.”
