The Longhorns came out slow, but ended strong Tuesday night, winning their first game of the season against the Globe Tigers by nearly 30 points. First year varsity coach Joe Sanchez said it was a great start to the season and predicted many more wins in the games to come. “We truly are going to go far with these guys,” he said. “We have a team of leaders.” With the Horns working well together, Sanchez said the 6 a.m. practices were paying off. Sanchez started working with most of the players when they were eighth-graders. Now juniors and seniors, the teens know each other’s individual strengths and weaknesses and help each other out both in practice and in games.
