Stephenville vs. Monterrey Tech

 

This has got to be my favorite time of year as a new season of football is upon us. Optimism abounds in the great state of Texas as everyone sits at 0-0 with grand visions of gridiron success. The anticipation of success doesn't get any bigger locally and state wide than for the Stephenville Yellow Jackets. The Jackets are a consensus top 3 pick in nearly every poll with many having Stephenville at the top spot. High expectations are nothing new for the Jacket program but they are even bigger with top talent returning and a drop in classification. For years Stephenville was one of the smallest 4A's in the state and now with an enrollment of 999 they are 2nd largest 3A school. The drop down shouldn't be looked at as a drop in competition either but more as going home. Four of the six playoff teams Stephenville faced in their 1998 state championship run are now 3A. The Jackets are back in familiar territory and with any luck the visions the The Jackets have for 2012 will end in grand fashion.

 

The season gets kicked off in unique style this Friday as Stephenville for the first time ever will not only play an out of state team but an international opponent. The Monterrey Tech Barregos or Wild Rams from Monterrey, Mexico. The Barregos have been playing football for 16 years winning the Mexican National Championship the last 4. Tech is a feeder school for Monterrey University which has won the last 8 Mexican national collegiate championships. The Barregos have played in Texas every year since 2006 playing mainly 4A and 5A schools. They call all their plays in english and have molded their game to match the American game as closely as possible. Tech will be a good quality football team and give the Jackets all they want.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Monterrey Tech changed a few years ago from a ground oriented offensive scheme to a spread air it out attack. The Wild Rams throw the football about 70% of the time. The random highlight tapes I watched from the last two years show they have good size on the OL and speed where they need it. That is about all the info I have on the Monterrey Tech.

 

Defense
The Barregos live up to their name on defense. They run a multiple look based out of the 3-4. They are not afraid the bring the heat and will so often. That aggressive style lead to Tech giving up big plays to Highland Park last year in the passing game which they lost 46-7.

 

Special Teams
The only info I have here is that they do have a good kicking game.


Prediction

Tech has played stout Texas competition every year since 2006. They will not be afraid or intimidated by the Jackets. Stephenville will have to bring it's "A" game because the Barregos definitely have the talent to pull the upset. With that said I have no doubt the Jackets will be pumped and ready to go for the season opener at home. The Jackets strong passing game should exploit Tech's aggressive style on defense.
Stephenville 42 Monterrey Tech 21


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

 

Alvarado Indians (0-0) vs. Bridgeport Bulls (0-0): Bridgeport returns 7 offensive and 5 defensive starters off a 7-4 playoff team. Alvarado was the 3A D1 state finalist last year and returns 7 and 4 starters as well. The Indians are a higher caliber football team with so many starters back from a team that was 1 point away from their first state championship. I look for Alvarado to start fast and furious as they take the first step to get back to the big dance.
Alvarado 35 Bridgeport 14

 

Glen Rose Tigers (0-0) vs. Carrollton Ranchview Wolves (0-0): The Wolves return 4 off and 5 def starters from a team that went 2-8 a year ago. The Coach Tommy Dunn led Tigers have 6 off and 8 def starters off a 6-6 playoff team. Coach Dunn was a longtime Stephenville assistant before going over to Glen Rose in 2006. The Tigers have been a consistent playoff team and will over match Ranchview.
Glen Rose 38 Carrollton Ranchview 7

 

Hillsboro Eagles (0-0) @ Buffalo Bison (0-0): Buffalo is a 2A D2 team. They went 6-4 last year narrowly missing the playoffs and have 9 off. and 7 def. starters back. Hillsboro has 6 off. and 7 def. starters back off a 2-8 team. This should be a competitive ballgame with the Eagles escaping Bison country with a "W".
Hillsboro 20 Buffalo 17

 

Venus Bulldogs (0-0) vs. Fort Worth Polytechnic Parrots (0-0): 4A Poly has 8 off. and 1 def. starter back from a 3-7 team. Venus has 5 and 5 starters returning from a 5-5 ballclub. The Bulldogs will start the season out right against the Parrots.
Venus 28 FW Poly 7

 


Be Loud! and Be Proud!

Stephenville vs. Aledo

 

This is one Jacket fan that grossly underestimated the caliber of football we would see from the Monterrey Prepa Tec football team. The Barregos came to town and hit the Jackets right in the mouth. Stephenville looked a little stunned and it took a half of football before the Jackets got their bearings. Stephenville came out of the locker room and fought to get back in the game. The defense forced several 3 and outs and the offense got things going after early struggles. Monterrey had 3rd and long late in the 4th qtr and went to the air to pick up the first down. Sophomore WR/DB Jarrett Stidham came up with an INT around the goal line and returned the ball out to the 30 yard line. The Jackets had 2:14 on the clock down by 3. It was not to be as the Barregos defensive front forced a quick throw on a screen pass. The ball was tipped and intercepted by the DE and returned for the pick six. Sometimes it can take a game or two for a team to work out any kinks or weaknesses, and a good team like Monterrey can definitely help you find where you need to improve. The Jackets will need to become more physical and execute better in the trenches. Coach Briles said this about the offensive line in the 1998 highlight video, "as they go, we go." That is true now as it was then.

 

Stephenville is going from the frying pan to the fire as they take on rival and 3 time state champ Aledo. The Bearcats identity on offense has changed but the quality of product they put on the field hasn't. Aledo played Highland Park last week in the Tom Landry classic at SMU's Ford Stadium. The two teams traded blows in the first half as they felt each other out. There was no doubt in the 2nd half as Aledo dominated the Scots. I have a good friend that went and watched this game and he said the Bearcats played like a beast in the 2nd half and Highland Park had no answer for their physicality. The Jackets will find out real quick if their line play has improved against a very good Aledo front. I expect a packed house as these two teams write another chapter to their exciting rivalry.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The identity of the Bearcat offense has changed quite drastically. They replaced all but 1 starter off of last years title team. Gone are All-American Jonathan Gray and Tarleton QB Matt Bishop. The Aledo offense is vintage pre-Gray Aledo. They ground out 5 to 6 yards at a time and are consistently in 2nd and 3 and 3rd and 1. This makes them very difficult to defend. The running game was done by committee last week as 3 different players had double digit rushing attempts. Frysinger and Anders are the main ball carriers. Frysinger can fly and will pop a big one on you if you miss an assignment. Anders is a sophomore with a ton of potential. I saw him play last year as a freshman and he has great laterally quickness. Pate Davis takes over the QB spot and he continues a long line of dual threat Bearcats QBs. Aledo has their usual solid offensive line. The receiving core was led by Taco Anderson last week and has their lone returning starter in Willie Gibson. Anderson had a 40 yard TD reception and Gibson a 33 yard TD reception.

 

Defense
This is the side of the ball the Bearcats are the stoutest at. They return 7 starters off a defense that by the time the playoffs came around was rock solid. They are led by an extremely talented linebacking core. MLB Jordan Mittie was one of the key move ups last year that solidified this defense. He carries on a tradition of excellent Aledo middle linebackers. Gunner Johnson on the strong side wreaked havoc last week and should the whole season. The Bearcats defensive ends put a ton of pressure on the Highland Park QB last week and will be difficult to deal with. Rounding out the backside of the Aledo defense is a good secondary led by free safety Clayton Lowe.

 

Special Teams
The kicking game has been somewhat of an adventure for the Bearcats over the years but it appears this time Aledo has themselves a solid kicker in Chance Nevarez. Nevarez can put it inside the 5 yard line on his deep kickoffs and nailed 33 yard field goal against Highland Park. #47 Baker Roberson is their punter and he did a good job last week averaging nearly 40 yards a punt.


Prediction

The Jackets offense will get tested very quickly by a talented Bearcat defense. Defensively I think Stephenville matches up well with Aledo. They will score some points but the Wardogs should be able to hold them down enough to give the offense a chance. There is a very good possibility that this Aledo team could win their 4th state championship in a row and the early returns show that they are up for the challenge. The Jackets are a very good team as well but they have some issues in the trenches to work on and this is a tough team to do that against. The Bearcats appear to be at a different level than the Jackets this early in the season. These regular season games between the two get pretty wild sometimes and I think this one will be no different. The Jackets get some more of that Tarleton Memorial magic and pull the upset.
Stephenville 28 Aledo 27


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

 

Alvarado Indians (1-0) @ Mexia Blackcats (0-1): The Indians just dominated Bridgeport last week 64-13. Mexia appears to be about the same caliber team as Bridgeport has they got pounded themselves by China Spring 69-20. Hide the women and children as this one will get ugly.
Alvarado 56 Mexia 14

 

Glen Rose Tigers (1-0) vs. China Spring Cougars (1-0): Both teams won big last week as they went over 60 points in their respective victories. The Tigers have a slight edge being at home. This should be a very good ball game.
Glen Rose 38 China Spring 35

 

Hillsboro Eagles (0-1) vs Hamilton Bulldogs (1-0): Hillsboro may be down this year as they got beat pretty good by 2A Buffalo 49-26. Hamilton meanwhile took care of business over Comanche 33-14. I expect a similar type of score for the Bulldogs this week.
Hamilton 35 Hillsboro 10

 

Venus Bulldogs (1-0) vs. Dallas Jefferson Patriots (0-1): Venus has been trending upwards since last year's 5-5 finish. The Bulldogs had a convincing win as they shutout FW Poly 33-0. Jefferson is historically one of the worst football programs in Texas. Venus should roll big in this one..
Venus 42 Dallas Jefferson 0

Stephenville vs. Beaumont Ozen

 

Man what a difference a week makes. This time last week I was looking at our tough non-district schedule trying to find wins. I knew Stephenville would be improved from the Monterrey game but they looked like a totally different team. What a performance the Jackets put up against the then #2 ranked Aledo Bearcats. The Jacket OL that struggled against the Barregos was dominant against the Bearcats. Tyler Jones orchestrated an impressive offensive performance, and the Wardogs were just as impressive for most of the ball game as well. Stephenville seemed to relax just a little when they went up by 24 early in the 4th qtr., and to Aledo's credit they kept fighting and made Stephenville play the full 48. Coach Gillespie said after the Monterrey game that he knew what needed to be done to get his team ready for Aledo. The Stephenville coaching staff did an amazing job leading the Jackets to a dominant victory.

 

This week the Jackets travel to Dallas to play Beaumont Ozen in the Lone Star Sports Football Classic. This will be the first ever meeting between the two programs. Ozen returns 10 starters 6 on offense and 4 on defense from a team that went 3 rounds deep last year in the 4A D2 playoffs. The Panthers were knocked out by La Marque. Ozen has eyes on bigger things this season with some key starters returning and they will be looking to make a statement against tradition rich Stephenville. The game will have an early season playoff feel as kickoff is Saturday at 1pm. The weather is suppose to cool so come on over and cheer your Jackets on, and for the football fanatic the Lonestar Conference is having their classic at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington the same day. You could catch the Jackets at 1pm and then hop on over to Arlington and catch the Tarleton Texans at 4pm against Abilene Christian.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Ozen is a spread offense that will try to get their playmakers on the edge in space. They have done most of their damage through the air in their first two games. The Panthers have some tremendous athletes so it will be imperative for the Jackets to tackle better than they have been. If they do not then you could see some big plays out of Ozen. The biggest playmaker for the Panthers is returning 20-4A offensive MVP Jakobi Jones. Jones is a shifty running back with very good open field speed. QB Jordan Ozen has completed just 46% of his passes but he can hurt you with his feet when the play breaks down. Jones has been the big play man through the air as well averaging 32 yards per reception. The offensive line returns just one starter, center Caleb Wright.

 

Defense
The Panthers base out of the 3-4 and present multiple looks. They have speed galore on this side of the ball. The Panthers' first two opponents have had some success running the ball but Ozen has been stingy against the pass giving up only 111 yards a game so far. The secondary has 3 returning starters.

 

Special Teams
Ozen will use two kickers on kickoff. One is the deep man the other is the pooch kicker. The punter has average leg strength for high school. The Panthers are very dangerous in the return game. The Jackets will need to be very sound in their responsibilities to avoid any momentum changing returns.


Prediction

Ozen is one of those teams with solid talent all over the field but have a tendency to be undisciplined at times. If the Jacket team that played Aledo shows up then Stephenville should roll. If the one against Monterrey shows up the Jackets will be 1-2. I doubt Coach Gillespie & Co. allow that to happen.
Stephenville 42 Ozen 21


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

 

Alvarado Indians (2-0) @ FW Southwest Raiders (2-0): Alvarado has rolled so far but will receive their first test of the young season as they take on one of the best FWISD teams in years. The Raiders also 2-0 received a big victory last week against rival Everman. I am going with the Indians in a shootout.
Alvarado 41 Southwest 38

 

Glen Rose Tigers (2-0) @ Mineral Wells (1-1): Glen Rose got a big win last week against a solid China Spring team. The Rams appear to be a little down this year. The Tigers and Sr. QB Bretton have another big game.
Glen Rose 49 Mineral Wells 17

 

Hillsboro Eagles (1-1) @ Clifton Cubs (0-2): Hillsboro got their first win last week against Hamilton. They should get victory #2 this week against a very average 2A D1 school.
Hillsboro 24 Clifton 14

 

Venus Bulldogs (2-0) @ Maypearl Panthers (1-1): Venus scored over 30 in their 2nd straight game which resulted in their 2nd straight win. The Bulldogs will rinse and repeat against 2A Maypearl.
Venus 31 Maypearl 7

Stephenville @ Waco La Vega

 

The Jackets continued the good vibrations they started the previous week against Aledo by beating Ozen 31-6. Stephenville was in complete control from the opening whistle dominating the Panthers up front. The defense played outstanding against an offense that had 6 returning starters including district 20-4A offensive MVP Jakobi Jones. Ozen could only muster 8 yards rushing and 115 yards passing for 123 total yards against the Wardogs. The defense consistently gave the offense a short field all day and they took full advantage scoring 4 times on the ground two from Tyler Jones and two from Witt Westbrook.

 

The Jackets travel down to Waco to play the La Vega Pirates this week. This will be Stephenville's first game against a 3A opponent as a 3A team. La Vega comes in with a 3-0 record and #2 AP ranking. This is not the first time these two have played. They squared off against each other for 6 consecutive seasons from 1956 to 1961. The Jackets won the first one and lost the next 5 meetings. This years game has attention from all round and deservedly so with two top 5 ranked teams going head to head in non-district. You better get there early as I am told traffic is slow in and around the stadium plus La Vega scheduled this as their homecoming game as well.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Coach Williams at La Vega is entering his 30th year at the helm of the Pirate program. There is nothing fancy about La Vega but what they do, they do it well. If I had to compare La Vega to an offense Jacket fans are familiar with then I would have to go with Everman with same type of players. LV will line up in the spread and under center in power formations, either way their goal is to run the football. The perfect game for LV would be to grind the football out running with a handful of play action passes. They are very difficult to beat when they can maintain this formula. The Pirates have 8 returning starters on offense from a team that was a FG from state champ Tyler Chapel Hill in the 2nd round of last year playoffs. The headliners are QB Marcus Evans and RB Randy Gober. Evans does an excellent job orchestrating the Pirate attack and Gober is a tough runner that can break a big one on you if given the room. LV has a big physical line to go along with their power running game.

 

Defense
LV has 8 returning starters on this side of the ball as well that only gave up an average of 15.7 points a game last year. The Pirate's 4-3 is led by a very talented front four with both defensive tackles wrecking havoc on opposing offenses. The rest of the defense is rounded out by solid all round high school ballers. Not much else to say other than they are a solid well coached football team on both sides of the ball.

 

Special Teams
Both kickers are average for high school, but both kick teams really get down the field and fill the lanes well. They hustle just as good on the return teams with speed to burn.


Prediction

Make no mistake La Vega is a solid football team with talent and experience. I just think their philosophy especially offensively falls into Stephenville's strength on defense. If the Jackets can consistently force LV into predictable passing situations then they should be in complete control. If they can't then this game will go down to the wire. My bet is the only thing the Pirate faithful will be celebrating this Friday is homecoming halftime.
Stephenville 35 La Vega 14


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

 

Alvarado Indians (3-0) vs. China Springs Cougars (2-1): Alvarado received the 3 point victory last week I predicted but the game wasn't quite the shootout I thought it would be as the Indians held on against a good FW Southwest team 20-17. I went and watched the first half of this game and Alvarado looked good especially up front. China Springs won last week after falling to district foe Glen Rose in week 1. China Springs should be a playoff team this year but not on the level of Alvarado
Alvarado 34 China Springs 10

 

Glen Rose Tigers (3-0) vs. Crandall Pirates (1-2): The Tigers keep on rolling against a lesser opponent in Crandall who got their first win last week after getting beat pretty bad the first two weeks. Glen Rose stays unbeaten.
Glen Rose 41 Crandall 17

 

Hillsboro Eagles (1-2) vs. Lake Worth Bullfrogs (1-2): Both teams will struggle for wins this year, Hillsboro will struggle more. I am going with the Bullfrogs.
Lake Worth 21 Hillsboro 14

 

Venus Bulldogs (3-0) vs. Red Oak Life Mustangs (1-2): Venus continues the theme against lesser teams as they take on Red Oak Life who picked up just their 2nd win in over 2 years earlier this year.
Venus 35 Red Oak Life 0

Stephenville vs. Amarillo

 

Stephenville passed another test last Friday by taking down the 3A #2 La Vega Pirates 43-22. Don't let the 21 point margin fool it took the Jackets until late in the 4th qtr. to put the Pirates away. Stephenville jumped out to a 22-7 half time lead and looked to be in complete control. To La Vega's credit they made some adjustments and clawed their way back in the game bringing the score to within 7 at 29-22 Stephenville early in the 4th qtr. The Pirates forced another stop and looked to try and tie the score. That is when the Jacket defense made one of two pivotal plays in the final frame. First, La Vega's game tying drive was short lived as Stephenville forced a 3 and out, on the ensuing punt Chase Varnado blew through the line and blocked the punt attempt. Mookie Carlile recovered the punt and returned it to the Pirate 13. Tyler Jones found Alex Sanchez a few plays later for his 2nd TD pass of the night pushing the lead back to 14. Then on the ensuing drive, La Vega standout RB Randy Gober broke free for a big run and was caught from behind by Stephenville DB Tyler Petit who stripped the ball and the Jackets recovered. Stephenville would methodically march down the field for the final drive and points of the night making the score 43-22.

 

The brutal non-district schedule continues for the Jackets as they take on the 4A #10 Amarillo Sandies. The two teams square off in another neutral site game at Snyder on Saturday. The Sandies come in with a 3-1 record after dropping from 5A to 4A this last realignment. Amarillo went 8-4 last year in 5A and return 7 offensive and 5 defensive starters. The Sandies are coming off an impressive win over former 4A #7 Wolforth Frenship 21-12. Amarillo's only loss of the season has come at the hands of 4A #6 WF Rider 26-17. The Sandies other two wins were blowout victories over Amarillo Tascosa and Odessa High. Amarillo is also ranked #13 in 4A by the Padilla Poll. The Sandies are coached by a familiar face to Jacket fans, Coach Mel Maxfield. Coach Maxfield was the coach at Burleson from 2002 to 2009. The Sandies are a tough physical well coached football team. The Jackets certainly have their hands full but what else is new in 2012.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Sandies run the wing-T offense with emphasis on the run part. Amarillo's ideal game plan would be about 50+ rushes and 8-10 pass attempts. While the Sandies have been very effective running the football their passing game has produced several big plays on the young season. The main target is Ryan Sluder who also starts at CB. Sluder will be one of the best all-round athletes Stephenville has faced to date. Directing the wing-T offense is 3rd year starter at QB Gabe Rodriguez. Rodriguez is averaging 19 yards a completion and a touchdown every 3rd pass attempt. He is even more impressive in directing the running game. The Sandies new OL has been solid to start the season. It will be imperative for the Wardogs to play assignment football this week as the wing-T can be very difficult to defend with all the misdirection.

 

Defense
The Sandies base out of the 3-4 and will bring multiple looks. Amarillo will not be afraid to bring pressure and bring it often. The Sandies will play a lot of man coverage in the secondary where the majority of their experience returns. The secondary is led by CB Ryan Sluder. He is an excellent defender. The Sandies have only given up on average 73 passing yards a game. Anchoring the front 7 is LB Alex Alcala who started at FS last year. What the Sandies lack in size up front they make up with quickness both DE's Crockett and Glover have been impressive. The Sandies have not faced a passing attack as good as Stephenville's and the Jackets will need to win the individual battles when Amarillo is in man coverage.

 

Special Teams
Amarillo is solid in all 3 phases of the game as they have an outstanding place kicker in #97 Mason Edmonson. Edmonson is left footed and consistently sends the ball into the endzone on kickoffs. The coverage teams are very good as the PAT/FG block team has blocked two PATs so far this season. #4 Ryan Sluder is the punter and has done a good job. Their return teams are solid as well.


Prediction

The Amarillo Sandies are a very good football team. This has the potential to be the toughest game the Jackets have played this month. Amarillo's style of play will shorten the game forcing Stephenville to take advantage of their opportunities. The Jacket defense will need to play assignment football and the offense will need to make the Sandies back out of their pressure defense with early big plays. I expect a close relatively low scoring game.
Stephenville 28 Amarillo 21


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

 

Alvarado Indians (4-0) @ Waco Connally Cadets (2-2): The Indians will get a chance to heal some wounds after a physical ballgame last week with China Springs. Connally is average at best.
Alvarado 38 Connally 16

 

Glen Rose Tigers (4-0) @ West Trojans (1-3): Glen Rose will stay unbeaten going into their district showdown with Stephenville in two weeks. West is in Connally's district and will more than likely bring up the rear in 17-3A. Tigers roll.
Glen Rose 49 West 7

 

Hillsboro Eagles (1-3) @ Hico Tigers (2-2): You know you are having a down year in 3A when you schedule a 1A and won't be the best team on the field. The Eagles are staring 1-9 right in the face..
Hico 27 Hillsboro 13

 

Venus Bulldogs (4-0) vs. Dallas Roosevelt Mustangs (1-3): Venus continues the march against bad programs. Roosevelt is the best team Venus will have played to date but the Bulldogs should have enough to stay unbeaten.
Venus 21 Roosevelt 17
