Road Trip 2015: Quanah Indians

Our 2015 Newschannel 6 HS Football Training Camp Road Trip begins with our only Texoma team from District 3-2A Div. II, the Quanah Indians!

The Indians open the season with a ton of excitement and energy. They have a new head coach, David Fambrough, and the players are ready for the challenge of something new.

"It's different," said senior receiver and defensive back Jace Parmer. "We were used to Coach [Jason] Sims being here the five or six years that he was, but [Fambrough] showed up and he's teaching us great things. He just keeps the excitement going, and I feel like we're going to be going on the right track."

Coach Fambrough is used to Texoma. Back in 2007, he lead Seymour to the state title game. Now he's back with a new team and a new motto for Quanah: "Earn it."  

He expects his players to earn everything this year and the seniors have already brought in.

"We come out here, and we play 7 on 7 all year," said senior quarterback and DB Mayson Leija. "We just come out here on our, own throwing the ball. Not mandatory, we just wanted to be good. We came out here, got Jace Parmer my main wide receiver, just getting in sync."

Coach Fambrough is not switching up too much on offense; Quanah still plans to spread you out and let it fly. 

"He runs a spread offense as well, so all we have to do is mix up the names that we had last year," said senior receiver and linebacker Avery Fuqua. "Just call it something different and run the same play."

"I expect it to be the same," said Parmer. "You know, up-tempo, just always marching down the field. Whether it's pass or run, we do it all."

Quanah returns a good amount of letterwinners to a defense that got better and better during last season. They think that side of the ball will be a real strength for the team.

"Last year, halfway through the season we really kicked it up," Fuqua said. Our defense really came together as a whole squad, and we got together and starting kicking people's butts. And I feel like its going to go the same way this year but from the start of the year." 

With the proper leadership, the Indians feel the sky is the limit this season.

"We had a pretty good group of seniors last year that set a good example for us, and I'd like to follow up on that," Fuqua said. "And I think it will be a good year and everybody will come through. It will be fun."

The Indians open up their season August 28th, as they visit the City View Mustangs at 7:30 p.m.

On Tuesday night, we'll start up District 7-2A Div. II with a look at the Petrolia Pirates!
