Aledo vs. Stephenville

 

What has become like a state holiday has finally arrived, opening weekend of high school football. We are not talking just any high school football. This is TEXAS high school football folks. The best in the country. That is why Texas has led the nation in division 1 college football recruits every year since they started keeping track of it. There will be plenty of high profile players on the field this Friday as your Stephenville Yellow Jackets play their annual grudge match against the defending State Champion Aledo Bearcats. Unless you have been living under a rock the last year, you know that these two heavy weights faced off twice in 2009. The Bearcats took both by a combined 7 points. Matter of fact, these two teams have played within one possession of each other 7 out of the last 9 games. I expect this match up to be no different. Both teams have high expectations indicative of their lofty pre-season rankings.

Gas up those cars, dust off those cans it is Friday night football time again in Texas!

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
There isn't any thing new to tell you about Aledo's offense since Stephenville last played them at Cowboy's Stadium. The octane booster in this high powered engine is Johnathan Gray. The junior running back racked up many awards last season while leading Aledo to the promise land of high school football. Gray gained 3,292 yards of total offense and scored an astounding 59 touchdowns. Obviously the Jackets will need to slow Mr. Gray down which is easier said than done. Complimenting Gray in the backfield will be junior QB Matt Bishop. Bishop is a very good QB who will make opposing teams defend the whole field, rather than stacking the box to stop Gray. Bishop's top target will likely be junior wide receiver Michael Mann. The Bearcats do have some rebuilding to do on the offensive line and must find a replacement for Forrest Cook at tight end. Aledo will try to spread the field with 3 WR sets out of shotgun to give Gray as much room as possible to operate.

 

Defense
The Bearcats must replace 3 all-state players on defense, DE-Cy Wilson, LB- Danny Heiss, and LB- Dillon Hawkins. They had a stud soph LB Brady Lambert, that they lost to Wimberly. That leaves them with one returning starter on the front 7 I believe. Weiss was a 3 year starter and Wilson a 2 year starter. They do return the whole secondary and some returning letterman that were on a rotation on the DL, so that will help. But Aledo did lose some big time talent on this side of the ball. Coach Buc generally fields a well coached defense but I am going to take a wait and see approach on comparing it to last years squad. The Bearcats have traditionally ran a 4-3 but because of heavy losses at the LB position and extra DBs you may see some 4-2-5 looks from the Bearcats.

 

Special Teams
I don't have much information on Aledo's kicking game. In their scrimmage against Burleson he was kicking it to the 5 yard line. I do know they will have very good speed in the return game.


Prediction

Stephenville had won 5 out of 6 from Aledo between 2002-2007. But the Bearcats have taken the last 3 including two last year. These two teams were about as even as two teams can be. One has to ask, have both teams gotten better since 2009? The Jackets return 8 starters on both sides of the ball and definitely appear a head of where they were this time last year. I expect Aledo to be better on offense but I will have to see it to believe it on the defensive side. I do think this game will come to the last 5 minutes of the game as usual, but the Jackets have a few more rounds in their clip at this point in the season.
Stephenville 28 Aledo 21


Now for the rest of the 8-4A picks.

 

Waco Midway Panthers (0-0) @ Round Rock Dragons (0-0): Midway has been a very solid program over the last few years but they are breaking in a new coach this year. Round Rock finished 4-6 in 2009 and is picked to finish near the bottom of 16-5A in 2010.
Midway 27 Round Rock 14

 

Waco Lions (0-0) vs. Austin High Maroons (0-0): Waco struggled last year limping to a 2-8 record. Austin High will be in the thick of the playoff race in district 15-5A. The Lions have a lot to prove and it may be tough against a probable 5A playoff team..
Austin High 31 Waco 20

 

Killeen Kangaroos (0-0) @ Killeen Ellison Eagles (0-0): The Roos figure to be in the hunt for a district championship with Stephenville in 8-4A. They will be to much for cross town Ellison.
Killeen 38 Ellison 21

 

Waco University Trojans (0-0) vs. Forney Jackrabbits (0-0): The Trojans have gotten better every year under Coach Carroll's watch. Forney was a 5-6 playoff team last year but are picked to finish near the bottom of 15-4A this go around. This will be a good test for both teams.
University 21 Forney 17

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (0-0) @ Andrews Mustangs (0-0): Lakeview is going to find a hard time finding wins in 8-4A this year. This is a very winnable game for the Chiefs against an average 3A Andrews squad. It would be a much needed confidence booster to start the season with.
Lakeview 28 Andrews 24

Abilene Wylie @ Stephenville

 

The Jackets are coming off their 4th loss in a row to rival Aledo. It was a hard fought ball game but Aledo out executed the Jackets where it mattered most, in the redzone. I said before that this game was a report card game and the Bearcats showed the Jackets where they need to improve.

The Jackets have their home opener this week against 3A powerhouse Abilene Wylie. This will be the first meeting between the two schools in football. The Bulldogs have had one of the most successful programs in 3A for many years now. They have played in the state championship 3 times since 2000, winning it once in 2004. Wylie is no stranger to playing quality 4A programs. They have played the likes of Aledo and Wolforth Frenship several times over the last decade. Last year the Bulldogs lost in the state championship game to Gilmer. They graduated 41 seniors off that team. Wylie always seem to graduate heavy but like many good programs they just reload..

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Bulldogs only return 1 starter off of last year's state finalist. Wylie will run a multiple offense. You will see some I-formation and spread sets. The Bulldogs like to run the ball with the pass coming of it's success, but they are very capable of taking what the defense gives them, run or pass. They have a big stout offensive line to lead the way for their top play maker, Joe Nasser. Nasser is shifty and not afraid of contact. He will bring the run to you. Wylie will rotate players in at the skill positions since several starters go both ways. The Bulldogs don't have the speed of Aledo but they are very well coached and will get after you up front.

 

Defense
Wylie's base defense is a 4-3 but run multiple looks including some 4-2-5. They are solid on this side of the football. The Bulldogs forced 6 fumbles last week against La Vernia. Their two way starters are some of Wylie's best defensive players. I know I sound like a broken record but they are stout up front on this side of the ball as well. The Bulldogs play sound, fundamental football and tackle well.

 

Special Teams
The kicking game is a bit unsettled for Wylie as there was a 3 way battle for both kicking and punting duties, heading into their game with La Vernia last week. The return game is above average.


Prediction

Abilene Wylie's Head Coach Hugh Sandifer has been at the helm for 25 years. In that time he has brought the Bulldog program to elite status in 3A. This game will be no cake walk for the Jackets. Stephenville will need to bring their A game to notch their first win of the year. The Jackets will need to lean on their powerful running game to open things up. The Stephenville defense is better than what Wylie faced last week and the Bulldogs will have a hard time finding consistency. The game will be close for a half then Stephenville's depth should put a little more separation towards the end of the game.
Stephenville 31 Wylie 14


Now for the rest of the 8-4A picks.

 

Waco Midway Panthers (1-0) vs. Round Rock McNeil Mavericks (1-0): Midway notched out a defensive win last week 17-0 over Round Rock. 5A McNeil beat Bastrop 22-20. Bastrop is a good 4A team. This should be a very good game and could go either way.
Midway 28 McNeil 24

 

Waco Lions (1-0) @ Copperas Cove Bulldawgs (1-0): Waco started the year off with a win against a probable 5A playoff team. Cove handled Southlake Carroll 35-14 in their opening game. This is a rivalry game and Cove has had the upper hand the last few years. I don't expect that to change this week.
Copperas Cove 42 Waco 20

 

Killeen Kangaroos (1-0) @ Killeen Shoemaker Grey Wolves (0-1): Shoemaker is not very good as they got hammered by San Angelo Central 42-7. The Roos should have no problem dispatching Shoemaker.
Killeen 41 Shoemaker 13

 

Waco University Trojans (0-1) vs. Hutto Hippos (1-0): The best mascot in high school football beat Austin LBJ 47-7. University appears to be hit harder by graduation than I anticipated losing to Forney 29-0. It may be a long year for the Trojans.
Hutto 38 University 14

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (0-1) vs Fort Stockton (0-1): Fort Stockton got beat by Big Springs 20-0. Lakeview got handled by Andrews 22-7. Both of these teams are going to struggle for victories this year. I am going to stick with Lakeview for one more week.
Lakeview 22 Fort Stockton 21

Stephenville @ Brownwood

 

The Jackets got in the win column last week over a good Abilene Wylie squad. Stephenville improved from the previous week against Aledo but still left several points on the board kicking 4 field goals. The Jackets will need to show more consistency this week against the #1 team in 3A.

It is the Battle of 377 this week. Stephenville vs. Brownwood is one of the most storied rivalries in Texas high school football. The game this year is receiving even more hype than usual. The reason being is because both teams come in ranked in the top 10 for the first time since 1998. The Brownwood Lions are ranked #1 in 3A and your Stephenville Yellow Jackets are ranked #11 in 4A.The Lions own the overall series record 25-42-2 but the Jackets are 14-4 since 1990. This game has all the makings of a classic with both programs returning several starters and coming in healthy for this great rivalry. Buckle up football fans it is going to another fun one.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Brownwood returns 9 starters on offense with the most prolific at wide receiver. Jaxon Shipley the son of head coach Bob Shipley and younger brother of UT star Jordan Shipley is the #2 rated wide receiver in Texas. He is also the #7 overall rated player in Texas according to Rivals.com. Shipley was out with an injury in last years meeting with the Jackets. Shipley is not the only weapon in Brownwood's vaunted 2010 spread attack. Wide receiver Luke Chastain is very capable of producing big plays if too much attention is paid to Shipley. The quarterback Graylon Brown has been very impressive since this summer. Brown led the Lion ariel attack to the division 2, 7 on 7 state championship in College Station back in July. He has not missed a beat in the first two games of the season as well. Stehl Ratliff is a good size running back at 205 lbs that will keep defenses honest. The offensive line has done well in the first two games of the year.

 

Defense
The Lions have switched to the 3-4 defense to take advantage of extra linebackers. They also return 9 starters on this side of the ball as well. It has paid off so far against Gatesville and Graham. Defensive end Levi Westerman is their best down lineman. Caden Ellis at linebacker has sideline to sideline capability. The secondary is very good with the aforementioned Chastain at SS, Kevin Vacarro (His brother plays DB at UT) at CB, and all-state FS Derek Longoria. Longoria is the best player overall on the defense. He has good size at 6'2 210 and really flys to football. Brownwood will not be afraid to bring the heat.

 

Special Teams
Special teams is very good for Brownwood. The kicker #12 Dillon Ellis has a good leg and routinely gets the ball inside the 5 and into the endzone on kickoffs. Longoria is a 1st team all-state punter after averaging 41.3 yards per punt last year. The Lions return game will be the best we have faced so far with Shipley leading the way. He has already returned 2 punts for touchdowns.


Prediction

Both teams return a ton of talent off their 2009 squads. Last year Stephenville won this game by controlling the line of scrimmage. The Jackets still have an advantage in the trenches, especially the Stephenville offensive line versus the Brownwood defensive line. Brownwood will boast the best WR tandem that Stephenville has faced so far. The competition the two schools have faced is not comparable as Stephenville has played two top 10 teams. Stephenville should have the advantage with the level of competition they have already faced and their edge at the line of scrimmage.
Stephenville 41 Brownwood 27


Now for the rest of the 8-4A picks.

 

Waco Midway Panthers (2-0) @ Belton Tigers (0-2): Belton came into the year with the highly recruited David Ash at QB, and won 10 games last year. The Tigers lost to Abilene by 9 in the opener. They then lost to a team they should of beat last week, Austin High, 63-66 in OT. Midway is better than Austin High but will have to score a lot of points to beat Belton.
Midway 35 Belton 31

 

Waco Lions (1-1) vs. Killeen Ellison Eagles (0-2): Waco as expected got beat by a good Copperas Cove team. Ellison is not very good this year and Waco has shown marked improvement. The Lions roll.
Waco 34 Ellison 21

 

Killeen Kangaroos (2-0) vs Killeen Harker Heights Knights (1-1): The Roos will make it a clean sweep over the other Killeen schools, but I expect the Knights to put up a fight.
Killeen 24 Harker Heights 21

 

Waco University Trojans (0-2) @ Killeen Shoemaker Grey Wolves (0-2): University got blew up by Hutto last week 51-22. Shoemaker is the least talented Killeen team. This will be each team's few chances at a win this year. I think University will come at on top of a close one.
University 20 Shoemaker 12

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (1-1) @ Amarillo Caprock Longhorns (2-0): Not much was expected from Caprock this year but they have started the season out 2-0 with convincing victories. The Longhorns will be to much for the Chiefs.
Caprock 42 Lakeview 20

Lewisville Hebron @ Stephenville

 

The Jackets took one on the chin last week in the 71st meeting of Stephenville vs. Brownwood. The Lions are deserving of their 3A #1 ranking. It was a 5 point game until 1 minute left in the 3rd quarter. The score was 21-16 Brownwood, the Lions then went on 28-0 run to finish off the Jackets 49-16. The Lions showed that Stephenville still has a ways to go to reach their lofty pre-season expectations.

The Jackets go from the frying pan to the fire. Stephenville took on the best 3A had to offer last week and this week 5A Hebron comes to Tarleton Memorial. This will be the first meeting between the two schools. Hebron is a good DFW program with a 4A state championship in 2005. They come in with good depth, size, and speed. The Jackets have their work cut out for them to try and ground these Hawks.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Hawks are loaded on this side of the ball. They run a true spread and like to chunk the ball. The QB Aubuchon is the main man in this high octane attack. If he was 6'2 instead of 5'9 he would have several D1 school knocking on his door. He is a true dual threat QB who is at his best when things break down. The Jackets must maintain rush lane assignments when playing a QB like Aubuchon. The RB Wortham started as a freshman which is nearly unheard of at the 5A level last year. he totaled 850 yards rushing in 2009. He has speed to burn and good hands out of the back field. Aubuchon's top target is WR Kiante Griffin. Stephenville will be going against a D1 prospect at WR for the second consecutive week. Griffin is the real deal out wide and will be a tough cover. Protecting Aubuchon's blind side is 6'4 295 LT, Will Jaurez.

 

Defense
Hebron has some good speed on this side of the ball but did give up quite a few yards last week in a loss to Mesquite Horn. Horn racked up 474 yards of total offense with 339 of it coming through the air. The big yardage total for Horn continues a trend by the Hawks going back to last year on defense. Hebron runs a 3-4 and their best down lineman is #36 DE Briscoe. He comes hard off the edge. Their best linebacker is #44 Holloway. He is a load at 220. The top play maker in the secondary is CB #1 David Jenkins. If the Jackets execute and play with authority on offense they can move the ball on Hebron.

 

Special Teams
Aubuchon is the punter and avg 35 yards a kick. The place kicker is above average with good leg strength. He can get the ball into the endzone on kickoffs. The return game will have plenty of speed.


Prediction

The Jackets are coming out of the corner battered and bruised. It is up to them whether they are going to be Rocky or Clubber Lang. I have seen Jacket teams over the years go through this several times, and more often than not they come out like a cornered bear. I just got a gut feeling that this will be the game that reminds everyone why Stephenville started out the season ranked #4.
Stephenville 31 Hebron 27


Now for the rest of the 8-4A picks.

 

#10 Waco Midway Panthers (3-0) vs. Everman Bulldogs (1-1): Midway has 3 impressive wins over 5A competition. Everman is no slouch either. I watched the Bulldogs against Highland Park this year and they appeared every bit as talented as their 2008 semi-final team. This will be battle.
Everman 32 Midway 28

 

Waco Lions (1-2) vs. Abilene Wy lie Bulldogs (1-2): Wylie is coming off it's first 2 game losing streak in a while. Waco lost to a Killeen Ellison team I thought they should of beat. I think the Bulldogs will get it together this week and eek out a hard fought ball game.
Wylie 24 Waco 22

 

Killeen Kangaroos (3-0) @ Round Rock McNeil Mavericks (2-1): McNeil is an average 5A team that got beat by district foe Midway 31-7 earlier in the year. Killeen behind QB Michael Cummings will start 4-0.
Killeen 27 McNeil 20

 

Waco University Trojans (1-2) @ Cleburne Yellowjackets (0-2): University should win their next two games. Cleburne is not very good this year getting blasted by 3A Dallas Madison 62-9 in their first game. The Jackets always play tough at the Rock but the Trojans should pull out the victory
University 30 Cleburne 27

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (1-2) @ Midland Greenwood Rangers (2-1): This will be Lakeview's most winnable game for a while. 3A Greenwood struggled last year and has narrow victories over Coahoma and Crane with a 30 point loss to Estacado. The Chiefs should even their mark at 2-2.
Lakeview 26 Greenwood 20

Mesquite Horn @ Stephenville

 

Stephenville played hard against a good 5A opponent but came up just short. I am proud of the way the young men played through many distractions. The defense played outstanding holding Hebron to just 17 points and 338 total yards. The Hawks had been averaging 500 yards and 44 points a game. The offense showed flashes but still not near consistent enough to beat a quality opponent like Hebron.

The Jackets will play arguably their most talented opponent to date in the Mesquite Horn Jaguars. The Jags have 5 players that have already committed to division 1 colleges. It will take a great effort and then some to pull the upset over Horn.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Horn runs a wide open spread offense. The stats show they are a pretty balanced team averaging 30 rushes a game and 27 passes. The stats also show the vast majority of their yards come through the air. The Jags have great speed out wide and are capable of taking it to the house on any play. Wide receivers Sheppard and Grant are the headliners. Grant boasts 4.3 speed and is committed to Kansas while Sheppard is going to play for Tulsa. The QB Strahan is also the teams leading rusher. The OL has good size and does a good job of pass blocking. It will be imperative for the Jackets to get good pressure on Strahan and play assignment football against a team with big play ability like Horn.

 

Defense
It is surprising that Horn has given up as many yards as they have with 2 D1 players on this side of the ball, and plenty of other good athletes to go along with them. The Jags will run a stack 3-3-5. They will not be afraid to man up and bring the heat. Defensive end Howard is verbally committed to SMU. DT Pruitt has an offer from Wyoming. Linebacker Boyd is committed Iowa State and fellow LB Williams is being courted by several D1 schools as well. Horn is definitely not short on talent but has given up some yards on the ground. The Stephenville OL will really need to play well this game and win the line of scrimmage and first down.

 

Special Teams
The kicking game is pretty average all the way around. I think it goes without saying that the return game can be electrifying.


Prediction

Stephenville really needs a confidence boosting win. If the Jackets can pull the upset here it will go along ways heading into district play. Horn will have the most overall talent of any team we will see the rest of the season. Every publication I have seen has the Jackets as double digit dogs in this game. My head says Horn but my heart bleeds blue and gold. The Jackets win by a blocked PAT.
Stephenville 28 Horn 27


Now for the rest of the 8-4A picks.

 

#9 Waco Midway Panthers (4-0) @ Austin Bowie Bulldogs (3-1): Midway's closest game has been a 17-0 win over Round Rock in week 0. Bowie is an average Austin area 5A team. The Panthers should roll in this one and appear to be the team to beat in 8-4A.
Midway 38 Bowie 17

 

Waco Lions (2-2) @ Mesquite Skeeters (0-4): The Lions beat Abilene Wylie in dramatic fashion. Waco kicked a last minute FG and held Wylie on their final drive to even their mark at 2-2. Mesquite is not picked to do much this year but I think the DFW 5A team has enough to pick up their first W of the year.
Mesquite 27 Waco 24

 

Killeen Kangaroos (4-0) @ Del Valle Cardinals (1-3): Killeen is 4-0 but hasn't had that win yet that makes you go wow. Del Valle won't provide that this week as the Cardinals are picked next to last in 15-5A. The Roos remain undefeated.
Killeen 28 Del Valle 18

 

Waco University Trojans (2-2) vs. Waco La Vega Pirates (2-2): The Trojans got a convincing win last week over hapless Cleburne. La Vega is a traditional 3A playoff team. The Pirates will be a tough opponent for University but I think the Trojans come out on top.
University 20 La Vega 17

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (1-3) vs. Lampasas Badgers (3-1): I think last week was the Chiefs last shot at a win for a while. Lampasas is a pretty good 3A team that just got moved down from 4A the last realignment. The Badgers will beat the Chiefs.
Lampasas 31 Lakeview 20
