Mingus football team looks to start how it finished
COTTONWOOD -- Momentum in sports can be a valuable thing. The Mingus Union High School football team is hoping it can carry into this season.

Last year, the Marauders got off to a horrible start. The team began its season 1-5. It would have been easy to give up, but that was not what Mingus had in mind. Instead, the team went on a four-game winning streak and ended the year 5-5. The impressive run included a season final 27-3 victory over Prescott.
