Did you know: Hallsville piled up 329 rushing yards en route to a 62-14 win over Bullard last season. The Bobcats led 13-0 after one quarter and 40-0 at halftime in that game

Twitter-sized preview: Hallsville is looking for momentum heading into next week’s District 9-5A DII opener at arch-rival Pine Tree, while Bullard hopes to make it two wins in a row. The Bobcats must stop dual threat QB Shewmake, and the best way to do that is controlling the clock with a strong running game.
