Sheridan football looking to rebound against Central

  Following a loss at Gillette, Sheridan will look to rebound against Cheyenne Central this weekend. Still 5-1, Sheridan dropped their first game of the season on a cold, snowy day last Saturday against the top ranked Camels, 39-10.

  The team has high hopes to move on from the loss and refocus to beating the Central Indians on Friday in Cheyenne. Central is 3-3, tied for the fourth best record in the state.

  Sheridan is looking to improve on their physicality and being more fundamentally sound on their techniques. After previously only giving up an average of 10 points per game, the Broncs defense allowed an uncharacteristic 39 points to the explosive Camel offense, an issue they’ll look to address as their season moves on.

  Sheridan is ranked second still after their loss. Gillette is first, and Cheyenne East at 5-1 is third. Kelly Walsh moved into the top five after beating Natrona last weekend at fourth, with the defending state championship Natrona at fifth.

  Sheridan has already secured a spot in the playoffs this year, but will be looking to be a top seed in order to be able to host as many home playoff games as they can.

  Sheridan’s next home game is October 18 against Natrona.
