Stephenville vs. Aledo

 

The Jackets took on the Lake Dallas Falcons last week in the two teams first ever meeting. Lake Dallas statistical wise boasted one of the areas best offenses and had not scored less than 28 points all year. The Wardogs forced Lake Dallas to punt on their first 3 possessions and intercepted the heralded Lake Dallas QB Williams 3 times. Holton Westbrook returned one of those INTs for a TD. The Jacket defense has now scored a defensive touchdown in all 3 playoff games. The return of Aiavion Edwards was a welcomed site to Jacket fans as the senior standout rushed for 171 yards and 2 TD and added another 67 yards receiving and 2 more TDs. The Jackets are playing at a high level at the right time of year.

 

The showdown that had been on everyone's breath since the playoffs started is on the horizon. The Aledo Bearcats and your Stephenville Yellow Jackets square off for the 6th time in 3 years. The Bearcats have won 4 out of the last 5 with the Jackets taking the 2011 season opener 48-47 in what became an instant classic. These two teams bring the best out in each other and I expect nothing less this Saturday.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Jackets will the face the best offense in region 1 for a 2nd time. There is not much I can tell you about Aledo that most Jacket fans don't know. They average over 540 yards a game and 56 points. The are led by one of the all-time great Texas high school players in Johnathan Gray. Gray has amassed an amazing 3252 yards rushing and 58 TDs in just 13 ball games. Gray has also added 5 TDs receiving for a grand total of 63 TDs. That averages out to nearly 5 touchdowns a game. Paving the way for Gray is an offensive line that looks like a college red-shirt team. Michael Mann is the leading receiver for the 2nd year in a row. The straw that stirs the drink offensively is QB Matthew Bishop. There are people that say Aledo is a one trick pony with Gray. That could not be further from the truth in my opinion. The Bearcats do not win back to back championships without the dual threat ability of Bishop.

 

Defense
The Bearcat defense uncharacteristically had an up and down year until the playoffs hit. Aledo gave up 110 points and 1100 yards of offense to Stephenville and Lake Travis early on. They then seemed to have some things worked out then Birdville puts up a big game on them with over 400 yards rushing and 42 points. The Bearcats made some changes. The most noticeable are Jordan Mittie at middle linebacker and Todd Christian at cornerback. Those two changes appeared to have shored up the Bearcat D which has been very good in the post season. Most noticeably against Mansfield Summit as they held the Jaguars to 100 yards and 20 points below their season average. DT Dawsey and DE Hill up front have been very good as of late. Along with Christian the improved play of SS Lowe has really shored up the Aledo secondary.

 

Special Teams
Garrett Ellis is the place kicker and punter. He has done very good job this year. He can reach the endzone on kickoffs. They will both pooch and kick it deep. Gray and Johnny Carter are the deep men on kick return. Obviously don't kick it to Gray. Devan Watts is the punt returner.


Prediction

There are certain teams that just match up well with each other and these are two. Both offenses have been very good this year, and the defenses have had their ups and downs. I think the Jackets better overall competition will be an advantage down the stretch. This game will be just like the rest of them coming down to just a handful of plays. If the rain holds out during the game then I think you will see a fairly high scoring affair like before. If it rains consistently then the game will be much more low scoring. If that is the case then I think a big play in special teams could be the difference.
Stephenville 41 Aledo 38 (If it is rainy then I will take Sville 21 Aledo 20)


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

 

Midway Panthers (10-2) vs. Wichita Falls Rider Raiders (10-3): Midway avenged last years playoff loss to Ryan by beating the Raiders 19-7. The Panthers showed who had the top defense in the area. Rider advances to the qtr. finals for the 2nd year in a row. The Raiders lost to Ryan last year in the qtr. finals. One thing is for certain one of these teams is going to advance to the semi-finals for the first time and I think it will be Midway. The Panthers are the best team remaining between Lake Travis and their record 5th straight state championship.
Midway 31 Rider 14
