With just over a week to go before the start of the regular season, the Plainview Indians decided to give themselves a very early preseason test Thursday night.

In front of a sizable crowd at Plainview Stadium, the Indians competed in their first scrimmage of the season against the Millwood Falcons from Class 2A.

Both teams showcased their physical presence on the field, as well as their abundance of athletic players on offense and defense.

Plainview managed to find the endzone multiple times on the evening, while stopping the Falcons on more than one occasion.

After it was all said and done, Plainview head coach Joe Price was very pleased with what he saw from his players, but admitted there is still plenty to work on before the season opener next Friday night against Elgin.

“I thought we were very competitive tonight,” he said. “In these first scrimmages, you really want to see attitude and effort from your kids. Our kids were flying around on both sides. We did a really good job staying with plays and just making plays.”

Fans of the Indians got to see multiple players taking snaps under center during the scrimmage which featured players from both junior varsity and varsity rosters.

Brock Parham, Drake Sisemore, Reis Taylor, and Payton Webber all took turns running the offense, with Caleb Burson making multiple diving catches on the field.

“We were up for a really good team coming here tonight,” Price said. “Our kids always rise to the occasion when we play a team of this caliber, as well as when we host a good team. This was a good scrimmage for us tonight, and we had a lot of guys play really well.”
