Buzzing for a playoff triumph

Ferris is once again knocking at the door of the first round of state football playoffs, qualifying for the eighth time in the past nine years. With that much familiarity with the post-season one might think the Yellowjackets might be a tad complacent. Not hardly, if at all. The Black and Orange have been one-and-done every time, usually because they finished third or fourth and had an opponent who finished first or second. The results have been predictable. Head Coach Brandon Layne, now in his third season at Bricktown, has a team that is set on getting beyond the first round. The Stingers have won six-of-their-last-seven games and will take a 6-3 mark against Vernon, 4-6. Ferris was second in District 4-4A while the maroon-clad Lions were third in District 3-4A. The two will meet at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 16, in Springtown. The game will be played at Porcupine Stadium, which was built in 2009. It is equipped with a video scoreboard, an artificial surface and seating for 6,000. Springtown is on Hwy 199 in Parker County, 79 miles northwest of Ferris. Vernon, located northwest of Wichita Falls, is 141 miles from Springtown.
