Rock River will not play its first two games of the 2017 season.

A lack of players has the Longhorns delaying the start of their six-man season.

Rock River was scheduled to play at Meeteetse in a nonconference game in Week 1 and was scheduled to host Hulett in a 1A six-man East Conference game in Week 2.

Via email, Rock River activities director Ty Vallier confirmed the first two games will not be played, but the remaining six games are scheduled.

When interviewed for the Wyoming Sports Preview Guide in July, Rock River coach Doug Spriggs said he anticipated five players to return — two seniors, one junior and two sophomores — and an incoming freshman class consisting of four to five players to help give the team depth.

Meeteetse has scheduled a game against the Riverton sophomores for this week. Hulett’s Week 2 plans have not been announced.
