    Dragons’ strong D-line alleviates pressure from Kilgore testing their secondary

    Wednesday, August 24 2016 11:54 PM EDT2016-08-25 03:54:34 GMT

    The Dragons strong D-line will be hard to break through, but it's the inexperienced secondary that will be tested. They've already shown growth during the preseason, and with a great D-line adding quarterback pressure, it will in turn take some pressure off the backfield.

    As the rain put a halt to several high school football scrimmages Thursday night, the Center Roughriders needed to get in as much work as possible before the season.
