Stephenville vs. Brownwood

 

The Jackets closed out an undefeated district campaign two weeks ago in dominating fashion. The offense racked up 63 points and 500 yards. The Wardogs limited Hillsboro to just 95 yards of total offense and pitched their first shutout of the season. Stephenville enjoyed a much needed bye last week allowing several banged up starters to get ready for the championship run. Your Stephenville Yellow Jackets are peaking at just the right time. Will Stephenville win their 3rd back to back state championships? The journey starts this week!

 

Stephenville will battle an old foe in the first round of the playoffs. The Stephenville Yellow Jackets and Brownwood Lions square off for the 73rd time this Friday. It will be the first time the long time rivals have ever met in the playoffs. Brownwood leads the overall series 44-26-2. These two storied programs have combined for 12 state championships. They last met in 2011, a 66-0 victory by Stephenville. You can throw the records out the window when you have a rivalry game. Shotwell Stadium in Abilene should be rockin Friday night.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Lions have been very good on this side of the ball. They run a spread attack and maintain a good balance run vs. pass. The offensive line is solid and physical. The top player is QB Chris Keesee. Keesee is a dual threat with a very good arm. He can make things happen when the play breaks down. Running back Braxton Kilgo has been solid toting the rock to a tune of 900+ yards with 18 touchdowns. Keesee's top target is freshman standout Connor Howard. Howard has gained confidence with every game and is a legitimate playmaker out wide.

 

Defense
Brownwood has really struggled on defense giving up 480 yards and 43 points a game. They haven't stopped anybody even in their wins. Their best players on this side of the ball are linebacker Rivas and cornerback Ontiveros.

 

Special Teams
#13 Abraham Oviedo is both the place kicker and punter. He is right footed and will kick it deep on kickoffs. Oviedo employs the rugby style punt. The Lions like to run reverses and fake reverses on kick returns. They will also run some swinging gate on PAT..


Prediction

I couldn't think of a better way to start the playoffs than with "The Battle of 377". This game looks to be a mismatch on paper with the Jackets as heavy favorites. But the game is not played on paper and you never know what may happen in a rivalry game. I expect Brownwood to throw everything they have at Stephenville. With that said, I expect the Jackets playoff experience and talent to take control for a commanding victory.
Stephenville 63 Brownwood 21

 

Now for the rest of the 7-4A picks.

 

Alvarado Indians (6-4) vs. Burnet Bulldogs (7-3): This match up has the potential to be the best game out of the four 7-3A vs. 8-3A contests. I believe Alvarado's playoff experience from the last two years will be enough to edge past Burnet.
Alvarado 28 Burnet 24

 

Glen Rose Tigers (4-5) vs. Llano Yellowjackets (5-5): The Tigers are still nursing some injured starters and I think that will be the difference against the upstart Yellowjackets.
Llano 28 Glen Rose 21

 

Hillsboro Eagles (3-7) vs. Liberty Hill Panthers (9-1): This is a mismatch and the Panthers punishing ground game will pound the Eagles into submission.
Liberty Hill 42 Hillsboro 0

Stephenville vs. Springtown

 

Stephenville started off slow offensively in the 73rd "Battle of 377". It was a combination of good Brownwood defense and rust from the bye week. The defense however was in post season form only allowing a 48 yard field goal in the first half. Those were the first points the Wardogs had surrendered in the first half of the last 5 games. Stephenville led Brownwood 14-3 at the break. The Jackets received the 2nd half kickoff and it was all Stephenville from there on. The Jacket offense got untracked and scored 28 points in the 3rd quarter and freshman running back Kaegun Williams had a break out performance. Williams rushed for over 200 yards and 2 touchdowns in the 3rd quarter alone and finished the game with a season high 285 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Wardogs continued their dominant game allowing a Lion touchdown with 35 seconds left. Brownwood's 10 points was a season low for the Lions.

 

Stephenville will take on an old 4A foe in the 6-5 Springtown Porcupines or Pojo as they are known. Springtown and Stephenville last played in a non district contest in 2005. The Jackets lead the all time series 3-1. Pojo comes in with a high octane offense that will try to upset the defending 3A D1 Champs this Friday at Justin Northwest Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30pm.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Springtown runs a true spread offense and they run it well. Pojo has good size up front especially on the left side of the offensive line. Sophomore QB Landry Turner has been hot and cold. Throwing for 36 touchdowns but also 17 interceptions. Turner has a stable of receivers with Springfield, Ray, and Hester all over 550 yards receiving and 7 or more touchdowns. Springtown will throw the ball about 65-70% of the time which makes their running game that much more effective. Pojo is averaging 213 yards a game on the ground with running back Ryan Snow leading the way.

 

Defense
Springtown has struggled on defense especially against better competition. The Porcupines run the 3-4 defense and will not be afraid to bring the heat. Inside linebacker Josh White is the best player on defense. He leads Springtown with 130 total tackles. Defensive end Waldrop is 2nd on the team in tackles with 58 eleven on them for a loss with 4 sacks. Strong Safety Rector is their top play maker in the secondary.

 

Special Teams
#42 Eric Avalos is the place kicker. Avalos is right footed and Springtown will kick it deep and pooch it on kickoffs. The deep kickoffs will average about the 5 to10 yard line. #7 Ricardo Reynoso is the punter and he employs the rugby style punt. Reynoso has been pretty good averaging 38 yards a punt


Prediction

I do not expect the Jackets to have another slow start as they did in the Brownwood game. Springtown has struggled against good competition. Pojo can put up some points and if they can get some early confidence they could make Stephenville sweat. The Jacket Machine will be running on all cylinders for a commanding area round victory.
Stephenville 56 Springtown 20

 

Now for the rest of the 7-4A picks.

 

Glen Rose Tigers (5-5) vs. Graham Steers (11-0): Glen Rose had a good run with a young squad that will be better next year. The Tigers season comes to an end as they face the top 5 Graham Steers.
Graham 56 Glen Rose 17

Stephenville vs. Big Spring

 

The Jacket Nation impressed me last week in Justin. The weather was miserable with near freezing temps, blustery winds, and drizzling rain. As I was driving up to the game I was wondering how sparse the crowd would be. By the time the ball was kicked off the Jacket Fans were in full force. In my opinion you could see the extra pep in the men on the field when they saw how many came out to see them in the miserable weather. It wasn’t a packed house by any means but a very good crowd considering the conditions. The Jackets did not disappoint with total domination on the field. The offense racked up 455 yards rushing with 132 passing. The defense was almost perfect as well in the first half only allowing one busted screen play for 70+ yards. It was the first touchdown the defense had allowed in the first half since September. The Jackets have been dominant in the first half of games in that span. Since October the Stephenville defense is only giving up 1.3 points in the first half while the offense has been averaging 40.5. Thanks to Brad Keith of the Stephenville Empire-Tribune for those numbers.

 

It is that time in the playoffs were Stephenville travels west. This year the Jackets take on another former 4A team in Big Spring. The Steers are 9-3 beating every team on their schedule with a losing record and losing to the 3 teams on their schedule with a winning record. The one thing they have been doing all year is moving the football and scoring points on offense. The big reason why is because of quarterback Tobyn Tannehill. You might recognize the last name Tannehill, that is because Tobyn is the younger brother of former Texas A&M and current Miami Dolphin QB Ryan Tannehill. These two square off for the first time since 1954. The game is Friday in Abilene at Wylie Bulldog Stadium, kickoff is set for 2p.m. Stephenville is the visiting team.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Big Spring runs an offense very similar to Stephenville. They run the football about 60% of the time. It all starts with QB Tobyn Tannehill. Tannehill is the younger brother of Miami Dolphin QB Ryan Tannehill. The younger Tannehill is a true dual threat QB leading his team in both rushing and passing. He is very polished for a junior QB with great foot work and instincts. The offensive line is solid with decent size. The Steers have a potent rushing attack with Tannehill and running backs #32 Hill (Jr.) and #4 Alexander (Fr.). Hill is the 2nd leading rusher with 858 yards and 21 touchdowns. Alexander is very good for a freshman with 765 yards rushing and 8 touchdowns. Big Spring has 2 receivers with over 800 yards receiving. The go to target for Tannehill is #9 Kennedy. Kennedy is a big target at 6'4 and a tough cover especially inside the redzone.

 

Defense
The Steers base out of the 3-4 and like most 3-4 teams they will present various looks. Big Spring will not be afraid to blitz either. They are undersized up front but quick. They have some good athletes at linebacker with #32 Hill and #50 Beal. The best players in the secondary are CB #17 Menefield and FS #10 Roberson.

 

Special Teams
#10 Devin Roberson is the punter and place kicker. He is a good athlete with a good leg. The Steers have some speed that can make their return game dangerous.


Prediction

Big Spring is a streaky team that can give you fits if they get in a rhythm offensively. Tannehill is the best athlete at QB the Jackets will have played this season. If the Jackets take care of the football their offense should control the game and limit the Steers touches for a convincing victory.
Stephenville 49 Big Spring 21

Stephenville vs. Lubbock Cooper

 

I sat and stared at my computer for a long while trying to decide what to say about the game against Big Spring. Adjectives to describe what I and many others were so privileged to witness were hard to come by. Every line I typed out just didn't seem to do the game or the two teams that competed in it justice. It was one of those games where you were so ecstatic that your team won and where you felt sincerely bad for the players, coaches, parents, and fans of the other team. All I can say about the Stephenville vs. Big Spring game is, that is why we watch sports. It can't imitate life so often. It helps build characteristics that so many athletes will need later on in life. It is why I played sports. To be a part of something bigger than yourself. To be able to be a part of a team, a family that strives towards a goal even in the face adversity. To watch the other team comfort each other when they gave it their all but come up just short. Such is life sometimes. The Jackets and Steers put on an epic playoff battle that will not be quickly forgotten by this Texas high school football fan.

 

The Stephenville Yellow Jackets have reached the region 1 finals for the 5th time in the last 6 years. The Jackets have the privilege of battling the Lubbock Cooper Pirates for the region 1 championship and the chance to play in the semi-finals. Cooper comes in with a 11-2 record beating Burnet last week 41-34. Cooper made school history with their first trip to the 4th round of the playoffs. This is the first meeting between the two programs in football. The game is scheduled for Friday December 6th at 7:30pm in Abliene at Shotwell Stadium. Stephenville is the home team. Let's look at the match up.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
These two teams are very similar offensively. They can line up in the spread and power formations. They both have a dynamic QB/RB combo running the ball. Both of their tight ends are the leading receivers. Cooper reminds me a whole lot of the Aledo offense back in the Cole Loftin days. The QB Keane is what makes this team go. He leads Cooper in both passing and rushing. The Wardogs will have to do a better job of containing another very elusive QB. The Pirates' RB Gruben also has over 1,000 yards rushing and makes the zone read deadly in Cooper's arsenal. H-back Ehlers is comparable to the Jackets #5 Martin. He is a quick athlete that can make things happen. Ehlers will catch, rush, and occasionally throw the ball. The leading receiver is TE/WR Evan McHugh. McHugh is a big target at 6'4 and can make the tough catch. Cooper has a good offensive line. The OL has good size and plays very physical.

 

Defense
For the 4th week in row the Jacket offense will face a 3-4 defense. Cooper has the best defensive line out the last four 3-4 defenses the Jackets have seen. DE Williams is an imposing player at 6'7 and Vega is a very good nose guard. The line backing core is under sized but quick and flow to the ball well. The secondary will play physical. Cooper likes to use their cornerbacks to jam the receivers at the line of scrimmage. The Pirates will try to keep the opposing offense off balance by bringing pressure.

 

Special Teams
#48 Pruitt is the place kicker. Cooper will kick it deep and pooch it on kickoffs. #12 Ehlers is the punter, as I said earlier Ehlers is a good athlete. The Jacket punt return team will need to be disciplined and make sure the punt is away or Ehlers could take off on a fake. The Pirates return teams are solid and well coached.


Prediction

I believe facing a QB like Tannehill last week will help the Wardogs in containing the dual threat Keane. If they let Keane get going the Jacket D will have another tough game like Big Spring. I do not expect the Stephenville offense to have another 3 turnover game. If the Jackets take care of the football on offense Stephenville should advance with a 14-21 point win. But if Stephenville gives the Pirates extra possessions we could see a game similar to Big Spring.
Stephenville 38 Cooper 21

Stephenville vs. Kilgore

 

Mother nature decided to have a say in how the 4th round of the playoffs would go down. It has been 20 years since we had an ice storm like the one last week this early. It was Thanksgiving of 1993. I remember it well because my grandfather's house burned down. I remember seeing the fire trucks slide past the entrance to his street. Iceageddon 2013 affected teams from all across the state. For the first time in Stephenville history the Jackets played a varsity game on a Monday. The weather wasn't much better on Monday than over the weekend. I have been to cold games, hot games, rainy games, even snowy games, but the Cooper game was bone chilling cold. I guess I can add that category to my list. Enough of me rambling, the Cooper Pirates came into last week making their first ever trip to the 4th round of the playoffs. They jumped out to an early 14-7 lead on Stephenville. The Jackets would settle down and take a 21-14 lead into the break. Cooper received the 2nd half kickoff and was forced to punt. Stephenville went down the field to make the lead 14 and it never got any closer than that. Cooper scored with 7 minutes left in the game to narrow the lead back down to 14, but the Jackets never let the Pirates see the ball again as they ran the last 7 minutes off the clock. Stephenville lined up in the victory formation and ended the game at the Cooper 10 yard line, 42-28.

 

Dejavu as the Kilgore Bulldogs and Stephenville Yellow Jackets square off for the 2nd year in a row in the semi-finals. The winner earns the privilege to play for a state championship in Arlington. Last years game was a heavy weight fight. The Jackets came out and landed some shots that stunned the Bulldogs and had them trailing 35-10 at the half. It looked like the Jackets were going to run away with the contest. The Bulldogs showed their mettle like any good heavy weight champion. The Kilgore defense aka Ragin Red stopped the Jacket offense on every possession but one in the 2nd half. Kilgore fought back to cut the Jacket lead to 3 with 5:08 left in the game. The Ragin Red needed one more stop, but did not get it. Stephenville would drive the field and push the lead back to 10 for the 42-32 final. I believe the fans of both programs are in for another great game. Will the Jackets move on to defend their title or will Kilgore get sweet revenge with a date at Jerry World? We will all find out 2pm Saturday at Corsicana Tiger Stadium. Stephenville will be the visiting team. Get ready fans this is Texas High School Playoff football at its finest!

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
There is nothing fancy about what Kilgore wants to do. The will lineup in the pro I-formation the majority of the time and pound the rock. The Bulldogs will run about 90% of the time and then pop a play action pass to keep the defense honest. Kilgore has what their fans call a "three headed monster" in their rushing attack. Justice and Juju Brown both have over a 1,000 yards rushing and QB Colbert has speed to burn. The Dogs ground game starts with their big physical offensive line. The Dogs average about 255 across the front. They do a very good job of finishing their blocks and getting to the second level. When Kilgore does throw the ball they usual go deep. Colbert only has 33 completions in 13 games but a third of them have went for touchdowns. Colbert's top target is Aaron Foy. Calling Foy fast is an understatement. He is the fastest receiver the Jackets have seen since Aledo's Ryan Newsome. In fact the whole Kilgore team is the best team the Jackets have seen since Aledo. But you wouldn't expect anything different this late in the game.

 

Defense
Kilgore bases out of the 4-3 defense. They are nasty on defense with size and athleticism all over the field. They are aptly nicknamed the "Ragin' Red". The front 7 is very good with over 35 sacks on the year. Kilgore will not blitz very often. The Ragin Red will let their playmakers be playmakers. They are led up front by DE Scott and DT Anthony. Both have a motor that will not stop. Linebackers Brantley and Haynes are the leading tacklers on the team with 239 total tackles between the two. Kilgore is very good at cornerback. Both Foy and Shepherd have the ability to man up and shut down the opposing teams wide receivers. Last year Kilgore shut down Gunter and Stidham holding them to 56 yards receiving combined. The Jackets did their damage in the middle of the field throwing the football.

 

Special Teams
#16 Christian Galvan is both the punter and place kicker. The sophomore has been very good this year. He is 72 of 73 on extra points and 2 of 4 on field goals. Galvan also averages 38 yards a punt. The Bulldogs have tremendous speed on their return teams. The Jackets will need to be very disciplined in their kick coverage. Last year Kilgore had some problems handling the pooch kick and muffed a couple. You can bet they have worked on that this go around.


Prediction

These two very talented football teams have tremendous pride and tradition. I expect a packed house for this semi-final showdown. This game could go either way. I know it is cliche but whomever wins the turnover battle and avoids inopportune penalties will win this game. The Jackets have a history and tradition of rising to the occasion. This homer expects Saturday to be no different. The champs march on to Arlington.
Stephenville 42 Kilgore 38
