Early Longhorns Off to Best Start Since 1976

The 4-0 Early Longhorns board the bus and make the trip west down Highway 67 to take on a struggling Grape Creek Eagle team at 7 p.m. Friday.  Early, now ranked #20 in 3A Divsion I by the Harris Ratings Weekly – is a heavy favorite in the final non-district game on the schedule.  The Longhorns are coming off a 47-13 homecoming victory over Merkel, a game in which Early pulled away in the third quarter with four touchdowns after leading just 14-6 at intermission.
