Cats on the prowl in '07

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

The Thayer Bobcats should be good and ready for some action when they travel to Salem, Ark., to open play in the 2007 football season Aug. 31.Thayer was originally scheduled to participate in a jamboree at Willow Springs Aug. 24, but Mother Nature had other ideas.As the Cats, along with the host Bears, Liberty Eagles and Cabool Bulldogs were engaged in pre-game warmups before the jamboree, the heavens opened up and heavy rains fell from the sky.Not wanting to tear up the football field, Willow Springs canceled the scrimmage game before it could begin, meaning Thayer's first real action in 2007 will come against the Salem Greyhounds.To see how Thayer and Salem, along with the Highland Rebels and Cave City Cavemen look in 2007, turn to our special section, Kickoff 2007, inserted into this week's issue of The South Missourian News.
