Las Animas learns spring football schedule
Las Animas High School, which declared to play football in Season C, learned its schedule for the upcoming season earlier this week.
There are only eight teams that declared to play football in the spring. The teams are Custer County, Front Range Christian, Hoehne, John Mall, Justice, Plateau Valley and Primero.
Season C football begins the second weekend in March. The Trojans will open the season with a trip to Lafayette to take on Justice. They will host Front Range Christian in Week 2 and host Custer County in Week 3.
In Week 4 in early April, Las Animas will make the long trip to Collbran on the Western Slope to play Plateau Valley. The following week, it will travel to Weston to face Primero.
The regular season ends in the third week in April as the Trojans will host Hoehne.
Like Season A, Season C will follow the same playoff format — an eight-team bracket, which will culminate the second weekend in May with the state championships.
Dates and times of the Las Animas season will be determined early in 2021.
