Dora (6-2, 1-1) at San Jon (4-3, 1-1)
• When: 3 p.m. today in a 6-man District 2 game
• Last year: Dora beat San Jon 85-32 at Dora.
• Last week: Dora defeated Floyd 67-19 at home. San Jon lost at Lake Arthur 62-6.
• Of note: Both teams are nicknamed “Coyotes.” … San Jon has combined with Grady in football for the past couple of years. “They’ve played some good games,” Dora coach Mason McBee said. “They have some pretty good athletes.” … The top player for San Jon is probably freshman Joseph Benavidez, who plays the spread-back (essentially quarterback) position). … On paper, it’s a game Dora should win, but McBee doesn’t want his team looking at it that way. “The kids are just engaged in this game that we’re playing,” he said. “I feel like if we play well we should win, but they’re not a team you can sleep on.”
