Gary Riley can sympathize with Willis. Riley, Hulbert’s head coach, is dealing with some youth, too.
It also didn’t help that starting quarterback Brandon Thompson suffered an injury that has hampered him early on this season.
A promising performance by Levi Carson bodes well for the Riders moving forward.
The one problem the Riders face will be a treacherous district slate. Only Hulbert and Quapaw have sub-.500 records right now. Colcord, Kansas, Ketchum, Salina, Wyandotte and Commerce all have winning records with Commerce at a perfect 3-0.
Victories could be hard to conjure up for Hulbert in 2A-8. But at least Wyandotte, Commerce, Quapaw and Kansas all venture to Rider Field to play.
— Prediction: Wins against Quapaw and Ketchum could be forthcoming, but the Riders conclude the 2013 season at 2-5 in 2A-8.
