Mayer football gets early jump on 2013
Mayer High's football team will play a Week Zero game versus St. David Saturday night at Mathern Field.
Word was not officially announced until late this week.
Wildcats coach Rick Lashley said one of St. David's originally scheduled opponents cancelled on the team and reached out to Mayer to play this weekend instead.
Lashley added that Mayer's Week 1 game against Rancho Solano at 7 p.m. next Friday at home might be in jeopardy, too, because of the Rancho program's status.
If the Wildcats do not play Rancho Solano, they would still end up playing eight games this season, which is what they had planned from the beginning.
