It was a big morning for the Nixon football team as they finally strapped on the pads and had their first full practice of the 2014 season. The Mustangs are coming off a pair of near misses in the race for the playoffs and want to put those negative memories behind them. Both the coaching staff and players say the fuel of coming up just short drove them through a successful offseason. Now they are taking the first steps to snapping a seven year streak of missing out on postseason play.
The Mustangs will play in the first game of the football season on Thursday August 28th as they face Laredo foe United South at the SAC.
