2011 Season Preview

 

The heat is sweltering, the football magazines are on the shelves, and millions of fans, and thousands of players and coaches are wondering if this will be our year. Soon the coaches will say goodbye to their families for 4 months as they work long hours molding boys into young men in hopes of winning their last game of the post season. It is that time of year again Jacket fans. The Texas high school football season is upon us all. The ups, the downs, and everything in between. It is going to be another fun and exciting year of football.

The Jackets came into 2010 with high expectations with a plethora of returning talent and top 5 pre-season rankings. Stephenville stumbled out of the blocks to their worst start since 1984 going 1-4 in their first 5 games. The players and coaches kept their noses to the grind stone and believed in each other. Before it was all said and done the Jackets were in qtr. finals for the 2nd time in 3 years, and Coach Gillespie accumulated the 2nd most playoff wins by a Stephenville coach behind only Art Briles. I have a feeling that the Jacket program will accomplish even greater feats under the careful watch of Coach Gillespie and Co., and it could happen in 2011.

Offense

Stephenville has nearly every skill position returning in 2011 starting with Baylor commit Aiavion Edwards. Edwards was nothing short of spectacular last year accumulating 1,744 yards and 22 touchdowns rushing, 289 yards and 1 touchdown receiving, 31.5 yards per kickoff return with 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception return for a touchdown. The amazing thing is Edwards did all his damage offensively in just 11 games. He became the starting running back in the 4th game against Hebron after James Myles left the team for personal reasons. Edwards is primed for a special year, Lord willing.

The Jackets also return their top 5 receivers from last year led by Witt Westbrook and Gabe Barrios. The pair combined for 111 receptions and 1,485 yards. Westbrook may see more time on defense this year. There is one underclassman that had a good spring that Jacket fans will want to keep an eye on and that is junior Brice Gunter. Gunter is a tall rangy young man that can really go up and get the ball. Some other receivers that stood out in spring ball were tight end Trent Morrison and slot receiver Alex Sanchez.

Although Conner Washington is a two year starter he is being pushed by junior to be Tyler Jones for the starting job. Both are mentioned in Dave Campbell's as top QBs in their respective classes, and they split reps in spring ball and 7 on 7. Washington is climbing the ranks in many statistical categories in the Jacket record books, but the young athletic Jones is making a bid to start his own legacy at the most scrutinized position in Stephenville Yellow Jacket football. This battle may continue into August and pre-district.

One place of uncertainty for the Jackets is the offensive line. Stephenville must replace all 5 starters from a year ago including 4 multi year starters. One thing this new bunch will not lack in and that is size. There will be no easing into it for the new members of "The Wall". They will need to have the kinks worked out early against some very good competition. Once the QB situation works itself out and the new OL comes together I believe this offense will be even better than the 2010 version.

Defense

The 2011 "Wardogs" have the makings of a great defense. But as we all know greatness is not made on paper but on the field. It all starts up front with potential all state defensive lineman Russell Cole. Cole plays in my opinion the most important position in the 3-4 defense and that is nose guard. Cole had an amazing 37 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks last year. He has been so good he takes up 2 to 3 offensive linemen which frees up the backers to make plays.

The leading playmaker at linebacker is TSWA 1st team all-state Padyn Giebler. Giebler had 113 tackles including 20 for losses with 2 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery. Giebler will be a 3 year starter. The Jackets will boast 1 other 3 year starter at the linebacker position with Holton Westbrook moving from his safety spot to linebacker. Westbrook was the 4th leading tackler last year with 82 tackles, 4 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 3 INTs, and 1 touchdown. The Jackets would have had three 3 year starters at LB but Tyler Floyd is out with an injury.

Leading the way in the secondary will be returning starter Braden Coverdale. Preston Brown is slotted to start at conerback. Brown started last year after Reilly Avalos went down mid-season with an injury. Charles Cain who was slated to start at the other CB spot was injured in 7 on 7 action and is not expected to be back this year.

Special Teams

Stephenville should be very strong in this phase of the game as well. Blake Barnes returns as the place kicker. Barnes was 13 of 22 on field goals with a long of 47 yards. He was nearly perfect on PATs 50 of 51. Holton Westbrook returns as the punter. The Jackets should be very good in the return game. Edwards averaged 31.5 yards per kickoff return with 2 TDs. They will have several good candidates to choose from to perform the punt return duties.

Prediction

The Jackets will need to improve in one very important category if they want to overtake the two time defending champ Aledo Bearcats, and that is turnovers. Stephenville lost every game last year that they lost the turnover battle and won every game they either won the turnover battle or broke even. The Jackets are plenty good enough to win their 5th state championship this year but they will have to go through their rival Aledo to do it. The Bearcats are loaded for another run at 3 straight. My prediction for the Jackets is 11-3 with another qtr. final loss to the Bearcats.

Game 1: Aledo- Win- The Bearcats have won 5 straight with all but one of the games coming down to a handful of plays. The Jackets break the streak at home.

Game 2: @ Abilene Wylie- Win- After watching the Bulldogs's subvarsity I believe they are still one year away from returning to their usual dominant ways. This is a trap game for the Jackets as they are on the road in between games with their two biggest rivals.

Game 3: Brownwood- Win- The Lions had their best team in my adult life last year. They lose a ton of talent that will be hard pressed to replace. I sense a big victory for the Jackets in The Battle of 377.

Game 4: @ Lewisville Hebron- Win- The Hebron loss was a tough one last year as Stephenville appeared to be the better team but too many mistakes resulted in a 3 point loss. The Hawks graduated their team leader and multi year starter QB Kyle Aubuchon. They do return some other highly touted skill players and the 'Woodshed' is a tough place to play but I believe the Jackets will reverse the outcome and come out with a 3 point victory.

Game 5: @ Mesquite Horn- Loss- The Jags who are loaded with D-1 talent will hand the Jackets their first loss of the season.

Game 6: San Angelo Lakeview- Win- The Chiefs will more than likely bring up the caboose of 8-4A.

Game 7: @ Waco University- Win- The Trojans return 7 offensive and 8 defensive starters from a year ago, but I don't think they will be good enough up front to beat the Jackets.

Game 8: Killeen- Win- The Roos lost two D-1 players including QB Michael Cummings. They do return several other starters and should be a playoff team.

Game 9: Hewitt Midway- Loss- The Panthers lost a lot to graduation but have some big time talent coming back and up. Shakiel Randolph is a D-1 talent on defense and he will be joined by several junior stars in the making on offense with Jordan Darling at QB, Hunter Jarmon at WR, and BJ Kelly at RB.

Game 10: @ Waco High- Win- The Lions return 8 and 8 starters and could challenge for the district championship. They beat Everman in the first round and gave Aledo all they wanted scoring 35 and rushing for over 400 yards.

Bi-District: Crowley- Win- The Eagles returned to the playoffs last year in Coach James' first year. He has 5 and 4 starters coming back.

Area: FW Southwest- Win- The Raiders advanced to the 2nd round last year for the first time in school history. They have 7 offensive and 8 defensive starters returning from a team that played Stephenville hard in the playoffs last year. This could be the best team to come out of FWISD in several years. This will not be your typical Fort Worth team.

Regional: Lake Dallas- Win- The Falcons were a playoff team from a year ago and return 8 on offense with QB Dalyn Williams leading the way.

Qtr. Finals- Aledo- Loss- The Bearcats will have their best team since the Jackets started playing them in 2002. If Bishop and Gray are healthy I don't see anyone stopping them from the 3-peat.

Aledo @ Stephenville

After a long winter and even longer summer it is that time of year again. Opening weekend of high school football in Texas has become like a major holiday. People schedule time off with all the kickoff classics going on and parties abound. I can't wait to hear the band playing, see the drill teams lining up, and feel the butterflies in my stomach before kickoff. It is time Jacket fans, it is time!

 

The Jackets start the 2011 football season like they have the last 3, against their rival Aledo Bearcats. Stephenville has dropped the last 3 season openers and last 5 overall against the Bearcats. All five losses with the exception of last years season opener have been by 8 points or less. Both teams come into this year with high expectations and pre-season rankings. Aledo is the number 1 ranked two-time defending state champs with a bevy of returning talent. That will aid them in their bid at 3 straight championships. Both of these teams know each other very well and there will not be many surprises between the two. I expect a few early season mistakes and another hard fought classic between these two fine programs.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
There is not much I can say that most Jacket fans don't already know about the Bearcat offense. Aledo has Johnathan Gray, arguably the best running back in the nation according to most recruiting services. Let me repeat that the best in the nation. Then you can throw in an all-state QB in Matthew Bishop, all-state D-1 left tackle Michael Wilson, and finally their returning leading receiver Michael Mann. Here is my Captain Obvious statement, the Bearcats are loaded on offense. Aledo will feed Gray the ball which will open up their very deadly and underrated passing attack. The Jackets have done a good job of limiting Gray in their 3 games against him. Stephenville will need to contain Bishops scrambling ability and force turnovers. Something they have not been able to do the last several meetings. Although this will be the fourth game for Bishop and Gray against the Jackets it will be their first in Stephenville.

 

Defense
This is the side of the ball where I think you will see the most change from the Bearcats. Last year Aledo had arguably their best secondary in several years. That allowed the Bearcats to man up on the outside and bring pressure. I think you will see much less blitzing and more zone from Aledo. But as always they will be very well coached and ready to go. The top play makers on defense for Aledo are at linebacker, Gunner Johnson and Dayne Davis. The Jackets have the athletes at receiver to test the new secondary of Aledo, but the inexperienced offensive line of the Jackets remains a big question mark against the very good front 7 of the Bearcats.

 

Special Teams
The kicking game was an adventure for the Bearcats last year. Early reports are that their kicking game will be much more stable as they connected on two FGs in their scrimmage. I think it goes without saying, don't kick the ball to Gray..


Prediction

Stephenville matches up very well against Aledo and these two teams bring out the best in each other. I expect nothing to change in that regard. The key stat in this match up is Aledo has won the turnover battle in every game during the 5 game winning streak. Until the Jackets can change that stat the streak will continue. The Bearcats are the back to back state champs with several of their stars returning. I think until the Jackets can prove it on the field you have to respect what Aledo has done the last two years and 5 games against Stephenville. I know in my pre-season article I picked Stephenville to win this one. But that was before it was known that one of the Jackets' top defensive players from last year would not be returning and they would have two starters on the offensive line sitting out with minor injuries. My heart says Jackets but my head says Aledo.
Aledo 27 Stephenville 20


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

 

#5 Hewitt Midway Panthers (0-0) vs. Round Rock Dragons (0-0): Round Rock went 2-8 last year in district 16-5A. Midway won this match up 17-0 in 2010. The Dragons have 7 offensive and 3 defensive starters returning. Midway should not have a problem in this one.
Midway 28 Round Rock 7

 

Waco Lions (0-0) vs. Austin High Maroons (0-0): Austin High was a 4-7 playoff team last year in 5A. The Maroons return 6/4 starters. Waco won a barn burner in 2010, 34-32. The Lions have 8 offensive and 8 defensive starters returning off a team I think has the potential to be a contender in region 1.
Waco 35 Austin High 24

 

Killeen Kangaroos (0-0) vs. Killeen Ellison Eagles (0-0): Ellison finished 6-4 last year in district 12-5A and have 6/6 starters returning. The Roos won the game last year 28-25 but I think graduation from some D-1 players will be to much to overcome in this cross town match up.
Ellison 28 Killeen 21

 

Waco University Trojans (0-0) vs. Forney Jackrabbits (0-0): Forney finished 3-7 last year in 15-4A and beat University 29-0. The Jackrabbits have 6 offensive and 2 defensive starters returning. University has 7/8 starters returning off a 3-7 campaign in 2010. This should be a hard fought ball game.
University 23 Forney 20

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (0-0) vs. Andrews Mustangs (0-0): Andrews was an 8-4 playoff team from district 2-3A in 2010. They beat Lakeview 22-7 in the season opener last year. The Chiefs return 6/6 starters off an 1-9 team and have a new coach this year. Andrews graduated heavy and only return 1 on each side of the ball.
Lakeview 21 Andrews 14

There are times in every high school football fans life when you realize you just witnessed greatness. Whether it be from an individual player, team, or the game as a whole. It is those times that keep me coming back to the stadium every year. That was one of the top 3 regular season games I have ever witnessed. I wanted to go shake the hands of every player and coach from both teams for the privilege of watching them on the field. I said in Cody's Corner that these two teams bring out the best in each other and that was never more true than last night.

What started out as the #1 4A team in the state flexing is muscle soon turned into a heavy weight fight with each team going punch for punch. Aledo appeared to take a commanding 20-3 lead early in the 2nd qtr. when junior QB Tyler Jones took over for the injured Connor Washington. Jones led the Jackets down the field for Stephenville's next 7 scoring drives. The Jackets closed the gap to 20-17 in the 2nd qtr. before Johnathan Gray extended the lead back out to 34-17. Jones closed the gap to 10 once more with a 31 yard scamper around right end. Aledo answered right back with one of Willie Gibson's 2 TD receptions. This one for 69 yards. Jones led the Jackets right back down the field and had 3rd and goal from the 17. That is when Jones threw one of his best passes of the night, a beautiful 17 yard strike to Hunter Bernays on a flag route. The Jackets would finally get a stop on the Bearcats. Two plays later, the other division 1 running back in this game Aiavion Edwards, took the hand off, darted right, and raced down Aledo's sideline for a 65 yard touchdown run. That cut the lead back down to 3 again 41-38 Aledo. Then on the ensuing kickoff ole mo' took a big turn to the side of the blue and gold as Aledo muffed the catch on the return and junior Alex Sanchez dove and recovered the football for the Jackets. On the very next play Jones found junior receiver Brice Gunter for the 2nd of his 2 touchdown receptions on a 15 yard strike. The Jackets took the lead 45-41 for the first time and would never surrender it. Sophomore safety Mookie Carlile came up with a big interception on Aledo's next drive that set up a Blake Barnes 35 yard field goal to push Stephenville's lead to 7 at 48-41. The champs still were not done as they marched right down the field and Matthew Bishop threw a beautiful 35 yard scoring strike to Gibson. Coach Buchanan decided to go for the lead on the road with 1:26 left and went for 2. Bishop handed the ball off to Gray who was stopped 1 yard short of the 2 point conversion by a host of Jackets. Stephenville would recover the onside kick and only needed one first down to run out the clock. Penalties and a near turnover resulted in a punt attempt by Stephenville. Aledo called it's last timeout with just 9 seconds left. The Bearcats blocked the Holton Westbrook punt attempt and recovered the ball at the Stephenville 25. Aledo lined up for a 41 yard FG try with 5 seconds remaining. Stephenville junior cornerback Preston Brown blocked the kick with no time left on the clock. Jubilation breaks out on the Jacket sidelines but the ref is waving his arms as a lone yellow flag lays out on the field. The call is roughing the kicker. The refs mark off 15 yards and Aledo receives another try, this time from 18 yards out with :00 on the clock. Senior linebacker Padyn Giebler storms through the line and gets a paw up to block the 2nd attempt. This time there are no flags and the Jacket faithful erupt in joy.

Stephenville @ Abilene Wylie

Text after text and email after email, they all had the same message, WOW! Those 3 little letters best described what we were all privileged enough to witness from Aledo and Stephenville. That was the best regular season non-district game I have ever seen. What a way to start the football season, on to the next..

 

This week the Jackets have the Wylie Bulldogs in their cross hairs. Wylie is coming off a 5-7 playoff season in D1 3A. They return 3 offensive and 3 defensive starters. The Bulldogs won last week over Rockdale 35-14. Wylie is a perennial big school 3A power house. They have made the playoffs 18 years in a row. I know many Jacket fans are giddy over last weeks performance, but it was only one game and now Stephenville must prove they can play like that on a consistent basis. Wylie will be no push over and Jacket fans should expect a dog fight. Pun intended..

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Wylie runs a multiple offense. They are just as comfortable running out of shotgun as they are under center. Senior QB McLeod had a strong season opener throwing for 317 yards and 3 touchdowns. He completed 77% of his passes. McLeod spread the wealth, Manawes had 7 receptions for 131 yards and 6'5 Bloomer has 7 receptions for 107 yards. The offensive line has good size and did a good job against Rockdale. The previously mentioned receivers were very impressive. Bloomer presents match-up problems with his athletic ability and 6'5 frame. Garrett Martin is the starting tailback. He is a very good athlete and garnered district newcomer of the year in 2010 as a sophomore. The Bulldogs will substitute often as many of their top players go both ways.

 

Defense
Wylie bases out of the 4-3 defense. The strength of this years bunch is the secondary. They have 3 returning starters. Conerback Kelvin James has the best cover ability with speed to burn. Middle linebacker West is a load at 6'4 220 and can really bring it. The Bulldogs are well coached, play hard, and tackle well. Wylie has several starters playing both. That may play factor late in the ball game especially on defense.

 

Special Teams
The kicking game is pretty average for high school. #20 Kelvin James is their best return man..


Prediction

This game could be a trap game for the Jackets. They are coming off an emotional victory and it is before the battle of 377 with Brownwood. Stephenville better be careful and not get looking behind or ahead or Wylie is more than capable of beating them. The Jackets put the state on notice with their win over Aledo. Now they must prove they are not a one game wonder and are worthy of their top 5 ranking. I believe they are.
Stephenville 42 Wylie 17


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

 

#7 Hewitt Midway Panthers (1-0) @ Round Rock McNeil Mavericks (1-0): Midway won convincingly over Round Rock 31-14. McNeil meanwhile beat a good 4A playoff team Bastrop 26-21. McNeil is picked near the bottom of 16-5A after coming off a 1-9 season. Midway rolls.
Midway 42 McNeil 14

 

Waco Lions (1-0) vs. Copperas Cove Bulldogs (0-1): Waco lit up the scoreboard last week in a 52-35 victory over Austin High. Cove lost a tough one last in Southlake, as the Dragons scored in the final minutes to beat the Cove 38-31. The 5A Bulldogs will be to much for the Lions.
Copperas Cove 38 Waco 31

 

Killeen Kangaroos (1-0) vs. Killeen Shoemaker Grey Wolves (0-1): Shoemaker fell to San Angelo Central 21-7. The Roos will continue their advantage over intra city schools.
Killeen 28 Shoemaker 7

 

Waco University Trojans (0-1) @ Hutto Hippos (1-0): Hutto beat Austin LBJ 43-26 while University was whooped by Forney 34-7. Hutto moves to 2-0.
Hutto 42 University 20

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (0-1) @. Fort Stockton Panthers (1-0): This will be one of Lakeview's few chances at a victory this year. Fort Stockton beat Big Spring 7-6 while the Chiefs were beat by 3A Andrews 14-3. I think Lakeview falls just short.
Fort Stockton 20 Lakeview 14

The early concerns of an Aledo hangover were quickly erased after a dominate first half by the Jackets. The defense which gave up 47 points last week was a major contributor against the Bulldogs. Wylie's only score in the first half came off a Stephenville offensive miscue. The Bulldogs were held to negative yards rushing and only 54 total yards in the first half.

Wylie won the toss and elected to receive. They quickly went 3 and out and punted the ball to the Jackets. Stephenville marched down the field behind the passing of Tyler Jones and the running of Aiavion Edwards who capped the opening drive with a 3 yard run.

The Jackets would force another Wylie punt, but on the ensuing possession Jones and Edwards fumbled the exchange. Wylie's Johnathan Bott was right there for the scoop and run from 29 yards out. That tied the score at 7 all. From that point on it was all Stephenville.

Alex Sanchez would cap the scoring in the first quarter with his first TD reception of the year from Jones. The score was 14-7 Stephenville at the end of the 1st qtr.

The 2nd qtr. featured several sacks by the Jacket defense and an 8 yard run by Edwards and a 32 yard TD pass from Jones to Gunter. Stephenville had a chance to add to its first half lead but a bad snap for a loss of 17 yards ended that threat.

The 2nd half featured several miscues by both teams and long injury timeouts. One from Stephenville's Jonah Noah and another from a Wylie player. Noah was able to get up on his own and walk off the field with assistance after laying on the turf for several minutes. The Wylie player had to be immobilized and taken to the hospital by ambulance from an apparent neck injury. The severity and condition of the Wylie player is unknown at this time. We all pray for his health and recovery.

The Jackets received the 2nd half kickoff and marched right down the field. Edwards finished the last 8 yards off with a TD reception from Jones making it 35-7.

After Edwards' 3rd TD is when the injuries happened and things got sloppy after the long delay.

Wylie would score it's only offensive points of the night with 8:05 left in the 4th qtr. Matt McLeod plunged in from a yard out to make the score 35-14 Stephenville. The Jackets would finish up the scoring when backup running back Cameron Burris scored his first varsity touchdown from 6 yards out, and that would be your final score 42-14.

Stephenville hosts Brownwood next week in the battle of 377.

Stephenville vs. Brownwood

The Jackets had every excuse to have a down game against Wylie. They were coming off an emotional victory over Aledo and they had their oldest rival Brownwood on the horizon. The men in Blue & Gold would have none of it as they took care of business last Friday in Abilene 42-14. The defense responded in a big way after giving up 47 points the previous week by limiting Wylie to just 130 total yards and 7 offensive points.

 

The Battle of 377 is upon us football fans. This will be the 72nd meeting between the two powerhouses. Brownwood holds the over all advantage in the series at 25-44-2. Stephenville is 12-5 against the Lions since 1990 though. The Lions thumped the Jackets last year 49-16. It was a 5 point ball game with 4 minutes to go in the 3rd quarter before Brownwood erupted for 28 unanswered points. Stephenville will be looking to reclaim the bragging rights in what is sure to be another physical ball game. Get your cans ready Jacket fans because the weather is going to be nice and it is Stephenville vs. Brownwood.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Last year Brownwood had a prolific passing attack with a strong ground game. The Lions are still going to spread you out but expect to see a much more ground oriented attack with just enough play action to keep you honest. The offensive line is solid led by returning starters Jose Avila at left tackle and James Crow at right guard. The only other returning starter on offense is running back Stehl Ratliff and he is a good one. His name fits his running style well. QB Mitch Stephens got some varsity experience at QB during his sophomore year when the Lions had injuries at the position. Stephens is like having another tailback in the back field. The Jackets will need to play disciplined football when Stephens and Ratliff work the inside outside zone read. When Stephens does go to the air look for Cooper Howey and Kevin Vaccaro. Both are more than capable of making big plays.

 

Defense
The Lions base out of the 3-4 and if you remember from last year; they are not afraid to bring the heat from all areas. The Lions have only two returning starters on this side of the ball. Vaccaro at conerback and Ethan Horton at outside linebacker. The strength of this unit is definitely in their linebacking core. They all read and react very well. Vaccaro's brother plays in Austin for the Horns as a defensive back. He is play maker from his safety spot.

 

Special Teams
The Lions kicking game is above average. The place kicker Matthew McCrane can kick the ball 5 yards deep in the endzone on kickoffs. Cooper Howey is the punter and he does a good job. Ratliff is their best return man.


Prediction

Unlike last week I have no doubts the Jackets will be up for this one. The Lions thumped Stephenville pretty good in 2010. Brownwood lost the vast majority off arguably their best team since their last state championship in 1981. Brownwood is a formidable opponent but not as stout as last year. If the Jackets bring it like they have the last two weeks they should come away with a convincing victory.
Stephenville 49 Brownwood 17


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

 

#7 Hewitt Midway Panthers (2-0) vs. Belton Tigers (2-0): Both teams rolled last week as they topped the 50 point mark each. Midway against RR McNeil and Belton against Austin High. Midway still wins but they earn it this week against 5A Belton.
Midway 35 Belton 27

 

Waco Lions (1-1) @ Killeen Ellison Eagles (0-2): Ellison got trounced last week 52-0 by Cedar Park. It won't get much easier this week against Waco.
Waco 42 Ellison 7

 

Killeen Kangaroos (2-0) @. Killeen Harker Heights Knights (1-1): The Roos will make it a clean sweep of the intra city schools this weekend.
Killeen 31 Harker Heights 21

 

Waco University Trojans (1-1) vs. Killeen Shoemaker Grey Wolves (0-2): Trojans move to 2-1 with a hard fought victory over the struggling 5A Shoemaker.
University 24 Shoemaker 21

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (0-2) vs. Amarillo Caprock Longhorns (2-0): The Chiefs could be staring an 0'fer right in the face. Caprock has been impressive in their two wins over Levelland and Borger..
Amarillo Caprock 42 Lakeview 17

Dominant


The Jackets performance last night can be summed up in one word, Dominant! If not for one penalty, a muffed punt, and one fumble it would be a near perfect game for Stephenville.The Jackets offense rolled up 590 yards on just 49 plays. That is 12 yards per play. The defense not to be out done held the Lions to just 222 yards with two interceptions including one for a pick 6.

The Jackets 66-0 victory was the largest margin of victory over Brownwood in the 72 meetings between the two. The largest margin of victory prior to last night for the Jackets was 41 points when they beat Brownwood 50-9 in 1995. It was also the largest margin of victory ever by either side. Brownwood beat the Jackets 62-0 in 1987 for the previous largest margin of victory.

The Lions received the opening kickoff and went 3 and out. The Jackets muffed the ensuing punt giving Brownwood the ball near Stephenville's 45. The Wardogs as they did all night would hold. Stephenville would score on 10 on their next 11 possessions. The first one coming on a 5 play 85 yard drive capped by a Tyler Jones 7 yard scamper. Aiavion Edwards would finish out the scoring in the first quarter with the first of 5 touchdowns, this one from 28 yards out.

Brownwood had a good drive to open the 2nd quarter. They started at their own 24 and drove all the way down to the Stephenville 6. The Wardogs bowed their neck and forced a FG try which the Jackets blocked. The Jackets would score 21 more points in the 1st half. The first was an 11 yard TD pass from Jones to Gunter, then an Edwards 5 yard run and Edwards' 3rd TD of the night this one from 2 yards out. That made the score 35-0 Stephenville at the half.

Any concerns of a loss of focus by the Jackets after halftime were quickly erased. Brownwood kicked off to start the 2nd half. The ball went out of the back of the endzone for a touchback. The Jackets started at their 20. They quickly went 80 yards in 5 plays as Edwards got his 4th TD of the night, this one from 36 yards out. The Lions would have their best drive of the night as they went from their 23 yard line all the way down to Stepehnville's 5 yard line. Brownwood had 1st and goal from the 5 and went backwards from there. They settled for a 34 yard FG attempt that went wide left. Edwards would get his 5th TD of the night on the ensuing drive. This time he darted up the middle from 37 yards out. Braden Coverdale would extend the Jackets lead to 56-0 with a 12 yard interception return for a TD. Stephenville's finally score of the 3rd quarter came after their 2nd INT of the night. Blake Barnes remained perfect on the year with a 29 yard field goal.

Stephenville held the ball for nearly the entire 4th quarter on their final drive of the night. They had a 13 play drive that chewed 10:34 off the clock. Cameron Burris carried the ball on all 13 plays finishing it off with a 5 yard TD run with 2:06 left.

Stephenville makes the long road trip to Lewisville next week to take on the Hebron Hawks. Hebron beat the Jackets last year 17-14.

Stephenville @ Lewisville Hebron

Stephenville totally dismantled their arch rival Brownwood last Friday. The Lions still hold a commanding lead in the series at 44-26-2 but they have never beat the Jackets as bad as Stephenville beat them on Friday night. The 66-0 victory the Jackets produced out did the 62-0 victory Brownwood had over Stephenville in 1987. I am sure this game will add even more fuel to fire the next time these two meet, but until then the Jackets have the bragging rights.

 

Stephenville goes from 3A competition to 5A this week as they make the long trek to Lewisville to take on the Hebron Hawks. Hebron will challenge the Jackets with the best defense they have seen thus far. TheOld Coach.com has the Hawks ranked # 16 of DFW 5A teams. Dave Campbell's picked Hebron to finish 4th in district 8-5A. They beat the Jackets next opponent Mesquite Horn 21-20 last week. I am looking forward to my first trip to Hawk Stadium, what the Hawk fans affectionately call "The Woodshed".

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Hebron will run out of the spread offense and through two games they have been about a 60/40 run/pass team. Running back Dezmond Wortham is a dynamic back that started last year and has varsity playing time since his freshman year. Receiver #3 Kiante Griffin suited out but did not play last week. Griffin is one of the top receivers in the state. He is listed as a Dave Campbell's 3rd team Super Teamer at WR. Gone from last year is QB Kyle Aubuchon, he was a multi year starter. Joseph Farley takes over the reins and has flashed his dual threat ability.

 

Defense
The Hawks play out of the 3-4 defense. They have good athletes at linebacker led by returning starter Brett Weir. The head liner of the bunch is DE Deatrich Wise. Wise is a 3rd team Super Teamer in Dave Campbell's. Hebron has an all new secondary and they struggled some in their loss to pass oriented Colleyville Heritage. Heritage rolled up 325 passing yards on them.

 

Special Teams
Hebron has a pretty average high school kicking game with game breakers returning the ball. The Jackets will need to be very good in their coverage teams this week..


Prediction

Hebron will have the best defense the Jackets have seen thus far. The Hawks are a top 20 DFW area team that should make the playoffs in 5A. Hebron is very tough at home. Stephenville is executing at a high level right and playing with a ton of confidence. That will carry over into a tough game with the Hawks.
Stephenville 31 Hebron 21


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

 

Hewitt Midway Panthers (2-1) @ Everman Bulldogs (1-1): Midway was upset last week by Belton. Everman was off last week but had a two point victory over FW Southwest in their last outing. The Bulldogs were thumped pretty good in their first game against Highland Park 48-28. Midway gets back on track this week.
Midway 35 Everman 17

 

Waco Lions (2-1) @ Abilene Wylie Bulldogs (2-1): Wylie got back to their winning ways last week beating Graham 21-7. Waco fought one out with Killeen Ellison 21-10. Waco's speed gives them the edge in this match up.
Waco 27 Wylie 20

Killeen Kangaroos (2-1) vs. Round Rock McNeil Mavericks (1-2): Killeen lost a game I thought should of won last week against cross town Harker Heights. McNeil struggled last year but is playing much better ball in 2011. I think this will be a tight ball game with the Roos coming out on top.
Killeen 27 McNeil 24

 

Waco University Trojans (1-2) vs. Cleburne Yellowjackets (1-1): This is a battle of teams that struggled last year. Both are looking to turn the corner. I give a slight edge to University at home.
University 21 Cleburne 14

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (0-3) vs. Midland Greenwood Rangers (1-2): This maybe the last chance for Lakeview to pick up a "W" this year.
Midland Greenwood 24 Lakeview 20

Stephenville @ Mesquite Horn

What a difference a week makes. This time last week I was recapping how Stephenville dismantled Brownwood and now the Jackets are literally and figuratively licking their wounds. The Hebron game was just bad from the start. Kickoff was delayed 1 hour 45 minutes. The Jackets received the ball and march down to Hebron's 18 before the lightning sirens went off again delaying the game another 40 minutes. When Stephenville came back out senior running back Aiavion Edwards was on crutches. Edwards suffered an apparent foot injury during the first series. Junior receiver Alex Sanchez also injured his hand in the game. Sanchez's status is uncertain at this time. Through the injuries and the rain the Jackets battled hard for 48 minutes and lost on a 26 yard TD pass with 28 seconds left.

 

The Jackets make another trip to metroplex this week to take on the talented Horn Jaguars. The Jags come into this game at 1-3 with a 31-23 loss last week to Denton Guyer. Horn played Hebron two weeks ago and lost 21-20. The Jags are loaded with playmakers and are a talented team despite their 1-3 record. The Jackets will have their hands full with another tough 5A opponent, who was a playoff team from a year ago.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Jags have been a run oriented team this year. Horn will use the shotgun spread the majority of the time. They run the ball about 70%. QB Destri White started against Stephenville last after their starter went down with an injury. Medgar Coleman is a physical back with good speed. TE Vincent Hobbs will sub in often. He is Horn's leading receiver. Hobbs is a big target at 6'4 235 lbs. The OL is anchored by center Brock Appenzeller. Although the offense returns 6 starters from 2010 they lost 3 D1 players from a 9-5 playoff team last year. They have struggled some with consistency but make no mistake, the Jags have the talent to bust out any time.

 

Defense
Horn plays an aggressive 3-4 defense. The Jags will probable try to match up outside with us and bring the pressure. They are led by OLB Richard Jones. Jones plays with speed and aggression from the edge. The rest of the linebacking corp is very talented and fast as well. Devante Harris is one of the best defensive backs in the state. Harris is listed on the 2nd team Dave Campbell's Super Team at CB. He has elite 4.3 speed. The Jackets will need to be patient and take what the defense gives with sustained drives.

 

Special Teams
Horn has a good kicker in Travis Tamez. Tamez consistently gets his kickoffs down to the goal line. Tamez is also the punter and he uses the rugby style. The previously mentioned Harris is extremely dangerous in the return game. Stephenville will need to keep the ball out of his hands.


Prediction

Stephenville does not have any one player that can replace Aiavion Edwards but they can definitely pick up the slack through a team effort. The Jackets are executing at a higher level right now than Horn. I think you will see a very crisply executed game by your Jackets for their fourth victory of the year.
Stephenville 27 Horn 20


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

 

Hewitt Midway Panthers (2-1) vs. Austin Bowie Bulldogs (2-2): Midway's game last week was canceled in the first half by weather but the Panthers were up 20-0 when it was called. Bowie is 5A playoff team from a year ago. Midway should roll into district with a victory.
Midway 28 Bowie 21

 

Waco Lions (3-1) vs. Mesquite Skeeters (2-2): Mesquite is much improved in 2011 after a 1-9 campaign last year. Both of their losses have been close including last weeks 28-22 OT loss to Denton Ryan. Ryan is ranked #2 in 4A. The Lions bite off a little more than they can chew this week.
Mesquite 35 Waco 21

Killeen Kangaroos (3-1) vs. Del Valle Cardinals (0-4): Killeen should be 4-1 going into their bye week before district play.
Killeen 31 Del Valle 17

 

Waco University Trojans (2-2) @. Waco La Vega Pirates (4-0): La Vega is a very good 3A team that should handle University.
La Vega 28 University 10

 

San Angelo Lakeview Chiefs (0-4) vs. Lampasas Badgers (3-1): The Chiefs are staring an 0-10 season right in the face.
Lampasas 35 Lakview 14

Many people where wondering how Stephenville would respond after their first loss of the season and the loss of standout running back Aiavion Edwards to injury. No one would of blamed the Jackets if they would of had a down game adjusting to the new personnel. The men in Blue and Gold would have none of the, "woe is me" mentality. They stated with their play on the field that we are still a good football team and we are going to play hard regardless of who's turn it is to step up. Stephenville beat a good Mesquite Horn team last night 28-20. Many people will look at Horn's 1-4 record and think they are not that good, but the Jags have lost the last 3 games by 8 points or less and return 7 offensive and 5 defensive starters off a 5A D-II quarterfinal team.

The game started out with both defenses flexing their muscle in a scoreless first quarter. The Jackets had one scoring opportunity but missed a 35 yard FG attempt.

The 2nd quarter saw Stephenville move the ball better. They scored their first touchdown of night on a 4 yard TD pass from Tyler Jones to Hunter Bernays. Jones stepped up in the pocket and right before he crossed the line of scrimmage found a wide open Bernays in the back of the endzone. Stephenville would move the ball well the rest of the 2nd quarter, but penalties killed several drives as they appeared out of sync with the new personnel packages. Horn would tie the game right before the half with a 27 yard TD run by Alex Johnson with 1:48 left in the first half.

Both teams made some good offensive adjustments at half as we saw 34 2nd half points scored between them. The Jackets started the 2nd half half out by forcing a Horn punt. Stephenville marched right down the field on their first possession and made the score 14-7 on a Witt Westbrook 5 yard run off the speed option. Horn would answer back with a 36 yard Tamez FG to make the score 14-10 at the 5:08 mark of the 3rd quarter. Stephenville answered back on the ensuing drive with a Brice Gunter 71 yard touchdown reception from Jones. Jones found Gunter on a post route and fired a rope 35 yards down the field. Gunter did the rest as he out ran the Horn secondary the rest of the way.

The Jags kept fighting back with a Tamez 35 yard FG on the first play of the 4th quarter. That made the score 21-13 with 11:56 left in the game. The Stephenville offensive line was winning the battle up front helping Westbrook to his 151 yards rushing on 24 carries with the one touchdown. Westbrook's running helped setup the Jackets final touchdown of the night. This one a great 9 yard catch by Gunter from Jones. It was 3rd and goal from the 9, Jones scrambled to his right and fired a ball where only Gunter could catch it. Gunter made a full all out dive dragging his feet as he fell out of the side of the endzone. It was an amazing catch. As the Jags did all night they kept coming back behind the running of QB Destri White. White had over 100 yards of his 129 yards rushing in the 2nd half. The Jags would cut the score to 28-20 with 4:41 left in the game on a 2 yard run by Alex Johnson. His 2nd touchdown on the night. Horn would force a Stephenville punt with one more chance to tie the game. Safety Mookie Carlile came up with his 3rd interception of year to nearly seal the deal. The Jackets needed one more first down to run out the clock. They had a 3rd and 5 from the Horn 35. Stephenville lined up in goal line and the offensive line plowed a hole for the first down run by Westbrook. The Jackets then got into the victory formation and ran out the clock for their 4th victory of the year.

Stephenville has a bye this week as they get ready for their district opener and homecoming game against San Angelo Lakeview.

Stephenville vs. San Angelo Lake View

The Jackets bounced back in a big way against Mesquite Horn. The questions anyone had on how the 2011 Jackets would handle adversity were answered in the Horn game. The defense played lights out. What did the Stephenville offense do with one of their top players out? They rolled up nearly 500 yards of offense and 28 points against a good 5A defense. Witt Westbrook who stepped in for Aiavion Edwards rushed for 151 yards on 24 carries with 1 touchdown. Jones completed 71% of his passes with 3 touchdowns. Two of those TDs went to Brice Gunter who also added 118 yards receiving on 6 catches. Much of the credit goes to the Jacket offensive line who took over the game in the 2nd half.

 

It is homecoming week and the start of district play. Stephenville is hosting San Angelo Lake View. The Chiefs come in 0-5 on the year. I apologize a head of time for the lack of information or statistics. The Lake View roster does not have height or weight information and there are no complete stats to be found anywhere.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Chiefs are a run oriented team. They will line up in the wish bone about a third of the time. The majority of the other time they will be up under center in the pro formation. Hunter Nelms is the anchor on the offensive line and has good size at 6'5 275 lbs. John Hernandez and Victor Saucedo will head the rushing attack.

 

Defense
Lake View will be the 4th team in a row the Jackets have faced that base out of the 3-4 defense. The Chiefs are led up front by returning starter Aaron Allen. Tyler Pacheco is one of their top players in the secondary.

 

Special Teams
#6 Nate Valesquez is the place kicker and has a pretty good leg. #20 Ricky Anderson is the punter. The Chiefs will have one of the least explosive return teams Stephenville will face.


Prediction

Coach Kuhlman is in his first year with Lake View after they posted a 1-9 campaign last year. He is trying to get the Chief program turned around and is off to a rough 0-5 start. Stephenville is the clear favorite and the 2nd string should get some good reps in this one. .
Stephenville 56 Lake View 7


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

 

Hewitt Midway Panthers (3-1) vs. Waco High (3-2): This is a rivalry game without much love loss between these two teams. Both defenses have given up some points to other good teams. I expect a high scoring affair with Midway edging Waco..
Midway 38 Waco 35

 

Killeen Kangaroos (4-1) @ Waco University (2-3): The Roos have been playing well and should start district play with a victory.
Killeen 31 University 16

 


Be Loud! and Be Proud!

Stephenville started district play in dominate fashion extending their overall record to 5-1 and 1-0 in 8-4A play. They beat the San Angelo Lake View Chiefs 63-0 to the delight of the homecoming crowd.

The Jackets kicked off to start the game. Lake View would get one first down on their opening possession before they punted the ball to Stephenville. Tyler Jones wasted little time getting the Jackets on the board first as he found Hunter Bernays racing down the middle of the field for 49 yard touchdown pitch and catch. Lake View as they did all night would use as much of the 25 second play clock to try and shorten the game. The Chiefs would again gain 1 first down before another short punt into the wind. It only took the Jackets 3 plays to score the 1st of Witt Westbrook's 4 touchdowns. Stephenville led 14-0 at the end of the 1st quarter.

The punting game would plague the Chiefs all night and especially in the 2nd quarter. Lake View had two blocked punts and two long returns by Witt Westbrook inside Lake Views 20. The Jackets average starting field position was the Lake View 38 yard line. Westbrook scored the first 14 points of the 2nd qtr. on runs of 13 and 23 yards. Brice Gunter had a 23 yard touchdown on his only catch of the night. Cameron Burris finished off the scoring in the first half with a 14 yard burst to make the score 49-0 at the half. The Jackets needed less than 4 minutes of time of possession to score the 49 points.

Stephenville started the 2nd half with their worst field position of the night as Lake View's kickoff would go through the endzone for a touch back. The Jackets would need just 3 plays to go the 80 yards as Alex Sanchez took a reverse 58 yards to the house. Jones would finish off the scoring for the game with a 15 yard run off the zone read. He was untouched on the play. Stephenville would make wholesale substitutions for the rest of the game.

The Jackets travel to Waco next week to take on the University Trojans who fell to Killeen last night 44-19.

Stephenville @ Waco University

Sometimes when you are playing against an opponent you are heavily favored against it is hard to play focused and sharp. The Jackets were both last Friday to the delight of the homecoming crowd. The only suspense in the game is who would be crowned homecoming queen. Stephenville only needed 377 yards of offense and 4 pass attempts to beat the Chiefs 63-0.

 

Stephenville travels south down Hwy 6 to take on the University Trojans this week. University comes into the district contest with a 2-4 record and 0-1 in 8-4A play. The Trojans fell to Killeen last week 44-19. Expect University to be fired up playing the #10 team at home. The Jackets cannot afford to take anyone lightly even though they will be heavily favored in this contest as well. The Jackets will be one step closer to one of their goals this week with a victory, and that is making the playoffs.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Trojans will lineup in the shotgun spread most of the time. They are a balanced team, and will start 8 underclassmen. The youth on the offense has led to some inconsistency but they definitely have some weapons. The offensive line has some good size but they are young with only one senior, at the center spot. QB Haven is a dual threat and the 2nd leading rusher on the team. His favorite target is receiver Zack Green. Burns is the only other senior starting on offense and he has break away speed out of his running back spot. .

 

Defense
The Jackets will be facing the 4-2-5 defense for the first time this year. The secondary has been good only giving up 59 yards a game through the air. They are led by senior conerback Michael Coleman. The defensive front has been gashed by the run giving up 240 yards a game..

 

Special Teams
#20 Chris Gayton is the place kicker and his deep kicks will go anywhere from the 10 to the goal line. #16 Adonis Haven doubles as the punter and is pretty average. The Trojans have good athletes in the return game.


Prediction

University will be better than Lake View but the Jackets will still be heavy favorites. The Trojans will come out with a lot of emotion but Stephenville will play like one of the top teams in 4A once the emotions wear off.
Stephenville 49 University 7


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

 

Waco High (4-2,1-0) @ Killeen Kangaroos (5-1,1-0): Waco stated we are a team to be reckoned with in 8-4A and beyond with a 26-24 victory over Midway last week. Killeen meanwhile took care of business against University. Killeen will be tough at home but in the end I think Waco beats the Roos and sets up a showdown with Stephenville in week 10.
Waco 30 Killeen 24

 

Midway Panthers (3-2,0-1) @ Lake View Chiefs (0-6,0-1): Midways gets back on track against the overmatched Chiefs.
Midway 56 Lake View 10

Jackets start fast, then hang on at the end

The Padilla Poll had Stephenville picked by 30 points over University. It appeared the Jackets were well on their way to fulfilling that prediction after the first quarter. Stephenville held a commanding 21-0 after the first frame. Witt Westbrook scored the first of his 3 touchdowns on a 4 yard run. That was followed by 12 yard TD pass from Tyler Jones to Brice Gunter. Westbrook capped the scoring in the 1st by taking a screen pass 17 yards to pay dirt.

The Jackets appeared to be on their way to taking a 28-0 lead early in the 2nd quarter when the Trojans stepped up. Jones had been perfect early going 9-9 for 180 yards and 2 touchdowns. The junior QB struggled the rest way going 7-20 for 82 yards and 2 interceptions. Jones' first INT came on a 3rd and goal play from University's 6. The errant pass was picked off by Jalen Harris in the endzone thwarting a 4th straight scoring opportunity for Stephenville. University would go 80 yards scoring on a 21 yard pass from Alvin Sanders to Adonis Haven.

Haven had a big night running, throwing, and catching the football for University. The senior QB accounted for 374 yards of offense and 4 touchdowns, he threw two TDs, caught one and rushed for one.

On the Jackets ensuing possession after University's first touchdown, Jones would have another pass picked off by Michael Coleman who returned it 40 yards to the house. The Jackets would settle down and score two more times before the end of the half. First on a Westbrook 14 yard run and a 26 yard field goal by Blake Barnes. Stephenville went into the half up 31-14.

University received the ball to start the 2nd half and only needed 2 plays to cut the lead down to 9. The Jackets blitzed and a scrambling Haven found Stephen Woods on a short out pattern. Woods cut the ball up field and was quickly met by 3 Jacket defenders. Woods spun out of the tackle and raced 73 yards for the touchdown. The snap on the PAT was bobbled and picked up by the kicker Gayton. He floated a pass to a wide open Fredrick Kelly for the 2 point conversion. That would be all the scoring in the 3rd quarter and much of the 4th.

Both teams finished with a flurry as they would score 21 points in the final 5:40 of the contest. Haven started the scoring with a 43 yard run to cut the Jackets lead down to 2, 31-29 with 5:40 left. The Jackets would put together their only scoring drive of the 2nd half, a 1 yard plunge by Padyn Giebler at the 2:30 mark to put the Jackets back up by 9 at 38-29. The Trojans would waste little time as they would answer on their very first play. This time Haven would do it with his arm as he found Preston Jones streaking down the sidelines for a 70 yard touchdown pass. Brice Gunter who got beat on the long TD pass would make up for it by recovering the ensuing onside kick. The Jackets would then lineup in their goal line power formation and run out the clock for the final score of 38-36.

Coach Gillespie said in his radio interview after the game, "I would rather have an ugly win than a pretty loss any day." Most importantly the Jackets are 2-0 in district play heading into a home contest with the Killeen Kangroos. The Roos have a 1-1 district mark after falling to Waco High last Thursday 31-21.

Stephenville vs. Killeen

The Jackets learned a very valuable lesson last week, you have to come to play every game and for 48 minutes. Stephenville looked well on their way to another blowout with a 21-0 first quarter lead but University bowed their necks and made the Jackets earn the "W". The Jackets looked flat and got rattled offensively. You couple that with bad tackling and University's confidence grew with every play until Stephenville found themselves in a dog fight. Credit the Trojans for a hard fought game but the Jackets learned that a team is not going to lay down for them even up 21-0. Do not let off the throttle until there is no doubt.

 

The Jackets will play host to the Killeen Kangaroos as they start a 2 game home stand. The Roos lost to Waco last week 31-21. Killeen had only lost one game prior to their contest with Waco. They are playing well. The Jackets will have their hands full as they try to keep pace with Waco for the district championship

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Roos will spread you out and to try to get their athletes in space. Last year they had a D1 QB and were much more balanced. Killeen has been more ground oriented this year. They have a good two headed running attack with Young and Scott. Young is the leading rusher but Scott is just a few yards behind him. The Roos are young at QB but when Gaskamp does go to the air look for Devarri McCray. Killeen has good strong side OL led by Chase Anderson.

 

Defense
Killeen base defense is the 4-3. They don't have a lot of size but they definitely have good overall speed. They close fast and tackle well. Their speed up front will be hard to contain on obvious passing situations led by Price at DE. Kouadio is their best interior lineman. The Roo back 7 has been very good only giving up 77 yards a game through the air. Justin Acker is the best Roo LB and the secondary is led by Ameer Lee.

 

Special Teams
Average kicking game with a bunch of skill on the return teams.


Prediction

I fully expect the Jackets to come out fired up after a lack luster performance last week. Killeen is a good football team but this is only their 2nd game away from Killeen. If the Jackets can establish the run they can win this game by 2 or 3 TDs. If they find themselves in predictable passing situations it will be a struggle. Stephenville has played well in the friendly confines of Memorial Stadium and with Killeen being on the road for just the 2nd time, the Jackets will win and keep pace with Waco.
Stephenville 38 Killeen 28


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

 

Lake View Chiefs (0-7,0-2) @ Waco High (5-2,2-0): Waco's 2nd string will get plenty of action in this one.
Waco 56 Lake View 0

 

Waco University Trojans (2-5,0-2) @ Midway Panthers (4-2,1-1) @ : Midway got a win last week over Lake View and University realized they have the talent to play in this district. Midway is the better team but I have a hunch University carries over the momentum gained from last week and makes this game closer than people think.
Midway 35 University 27

Stephenville vs. Midway.

The Jackets displayed the character of a team that had been there done that before in their come back win over Killeen. Stephenville drawing on their experience of come backs and close games this year made the plays at the end to earn the victory. They didn't panic and just kept coming after a good Killeen squad. There were times when things didn't look good but the Jackets put plays together when it mattered most. Clutch is a term used for play makers when it matters most. There was none more clutch last Friday than Preston Brown. He made to huge plays against Killeen. The first when he ran down a Killeen ball carrier from the other side of the field. The Roo runner had busted open and was racing down the sidelines for a would be touchdown when Brown ran him down from the other side of the field nearly 70 yards down field. He tackled him near the 10 yard line and the Jackets would hold and force a Killeen field goal. The other clutch play was the game winner. The Roos were kicking off from their 20 after a safety when Brown caught the ball at the 30 headed towards the middle of the field and cut to the outside and out ran the Killeen pursuers for the 70 yard touchdown. Who will be clutch this week?

 

Stephenville will host the defending 8-4A champs Hewitt Midway this Friday in the home finale for the Jackets. Midway comes into the contest at 5-2 with their only loss to 5A Belton and Waco High. Midway has only played 7 games this year as their non-district match up with Everman was cancelled in the 1st half because of inclement weather. The Panthers were up 20-0 when the game was called.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Midway has a very good offense led by the strong armed Darling at QB. Darling is one of the top rated junior QB's in the state. The Panthers will go 4 wide and spread the ball around. Darling's favorite target is junior Hunter Jarmon. Jarmon has been a big play receiver averaging over 18 yards a reception. Midway is a balanced offense with a very good running back in BJ Kelly. Kelly is another junior in a talented trio of juniors for the Panthers. Kelly has very good speed and plenty of power packed into his 5-9 frame at 195 lbs. Midway will also sub in a running QB for different Wildcat type packages.

 

Defense
Midway's base defense is the 3-4 with plenty of speed and quickness. They can really get after you on D. #31 DeLeon is their best down lineman. Outside linebacker #7 Buhl is a play maker off the edge. The secondary is led by D1 recruit Randolph at safety. Randolph is a returning starter and had a good game against Stephenville last year..

 

Special Teams
The place kicker is #13 Dewberry. They will both kick it deep and pooch on kickoffs. He has an above average leg. Punter is #2 Jarmon. Midway has very good return men.


Prediction

The Jackets will need to play much more consistent this week especially on the offensive line to come away with the "W". The Wardogs will have the services of Holton Westbrook back this week and that will bolster their defense greatly. It will take all 3 phases executing at a high level to beat a quality opponent like Midway. The Jackets have played at a high level more often than not this season. I believe they will put together a complete effort for a tough fought victory over the Panthers.
Stephenville 31 Midway 28


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

 

Lake View Chiefs (0-8,0-3) @ Killeen Kangaroos (5-3,1-2): The Roos will secure a playoff spot with a convincing victory over the winless Chiefs.
Killeen 49 Lake View 7

 

Waco University Trojans (2-6,0-3) @ Waco Lions (6-2,3-0) : This cross town rivalry won't be nearly as exciting as Midway-Waco was. The Lions continue their dominance and march into their match up with Stephenville at 4-0 in 8-4A.
Waco 42 University 17

Stephenville @ Waco



The Jackets as Coach Gillespie put it, "We got our lips bloodied last Friday. Now we got see how we respond to it." The Midway Panthers put the whoopin on Stephenville 51-20. The Jackets just don't seem to be playing with the same confidence level as earlier in the season. Ever since Jones threw the interception in the endzone against Waco University the team has been in funk they can't shake. It starts up front at the line of scrimmage and trickles down. This Jacket squad played at a very high level for the first 6 weeks of the season even without standout RB Aiavion Edwards. They are going to have to dig down and pull themselves out of this slump. That is exactly what I expect them to do. The heart of a Yellow Jacket never quits.

 

Stephenville will travel down hwy 6 for the regular season finale against Waco High. The Lions come into this contest standing a top district 8-4A with a 4-0 record. They are vying for the outright district championship and the no. 1 seed in the division 2 bracket of the 4A playoffs. The Jackets will have their work cut out for them as Waco is playing like one of the top teams in region 1. Let's take a look at the match up.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
The Lions have a potent ground attack out of the spread. They will run the ball about 85% of the time and why not when you are averaging 371 yards a game on the ground. The vaunted rush attack is led by Darrell Harris. The senior will touch the ball on average 29 times a game. Equally as deadly running it is senior QB Deonte Phillips. The biggest reason for their success is the HUGE line in front of them that averages 6'2 280. Waco has not passed much and has thrown more INTs than TDs. There have been very few teams that have forced them to the air.

 

Defense
The Lion defense has been some what up and down against good teams, much like the Jackets. They have given up some big point and yard totals in a few games this season. They have several returning starters led up front by DE Evan Gordon. Gordon has been a terror off the edge living in opponents backfields. Both outside linebackers are very good at containing the outside and bringing pressure. Waco will not be afraid to bring the heat either. The two safeties do a good job of patrolling the middle of the field and run support.

 

Special Teams
The kicking game is solid and I think it goes without saying their dynamic athletes affect field position in the return game.


Prediction

I have gone back and forth over this game all week. Picking Waco by as much as 21 to believing my Jackets will pull the upset. Waco is playing the best ball in the district right now and it will be a tough task for the Jackets. We have seen the Jackets play at a very high level against comparable competition this season. The funk Stephenville is in started at Waco ISD Stadium and it will end this Friday in Waco ISD Stadium..
Stephenville 42 Waco 38


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

 

Lake View Chiefs (0-9,0-4) @ Waco University Trojans (2-7,0-4): The Trojans avoid last place with a convincing victory over the Chiefs.
University 42 Lake View 10

 

Killeen Kangaroos (6-3,2-2) @ Hewitt Midway Panthers (6-2,3-1) : Both teams have clinched playoff spots and will be division 1. This game like the Stephenville-Waco game is for nothing more than seeding. It will be closer than people think with the hometown Panthers getting the edge.
Midway 38 Killeen 28

Stephenville vs. Everman

 

Stephenville put together their most complete performance of the year last week against Waco. The Lions were undefeated in district and looking to claim the 1st place D2 seed but the Jackets had other plans. You could tell right from the get go that the Jackets had great intensity and came out executing at a high level. Waco battled back but it was all Jackets in the 2nd half as they dominated the Lions enroute to a 56-21 victory. That win created much needed momentum heading into the playoffs.

 

The Jackets match up with an old foe in the first round of the playoffs. Stephenville will take on the Everman Bulldogs in Weatherford on Friday night. Stephenville will sit on the home side of Kangaroo Stadium. The Bulldogs come in with a 6-3 record. They did not play 10 games because their non-district game with Hewitt Midway got cancelled. Midway was up 20-0 in the 1st qtr. when the game was cancelled because of inclement weather. Midway is the only common opponent between Everman and Stephenville. The tradition rich Bulldogs will be a tough bi-district opponent for your Stephenville Yellow Jackets. Lets take a look at the match up.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Everman is an old school power running team. They run the ball about 80% of the time and will be under center the majority of their snaps. The wing back plays a big part in their offense. Pat Small plays that position and is Everman's leading rusher. The Bulldogs will spread the ball around in their misdirection rush attack. The Jackets will need to play assignment football this week to avoid the big play. When QB Birdow goes to the air he looks for Small on play action. Small is averaging over 27 yards per catch.

 

Defense
Everman base defense is the 4-3 and at times it looks more like a 4-2-5. The best athletes on the Dawg defense are at defensive end. Richard and Kennedy are beasts coming off the edge. Richardson at CB is their best play maker in the secondary. He is a verbal commit to SMU. Hollie is another good one in a long line of talented Everman MLB. The Bulldogs have been pretty good against the run but have had their struggles against the pass.

 

Special Teams
Everman has great athletes in the return game. #72 kickoffs and he is a toe puncher. #88 Cruz is the place kicker and punter.


Prediction

The Jackets have some great momentum heading into the playoffs after last weeks convincing win over a good Waco squad. I believe the Jackets carry that over this week and into the rest of the playoffs.
Stephenville 35 Everman 14


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

 

Waco Lions (7-3) vs. Mansfield Summit Jaguars (9-1): These two teams are very similar. Waco High has played the better competition over the season and I think that is the difference in this great 1st round game.
Waco 45 Summit 38

 

Killeen Kangaroos (6-4) vs. Granbury Pirates (5-5): This should be another tightly contested ball game but I think Killeen's overall speed and athleticism will be to much for the Pirates to overcome.
Killeen 31 Granbury 27

 

Midway Panthers (7-2) vs. Burleson Elks (6-4): Midway is playing some great ball at the right time of year. Every playoff season there is a good team that gets on a roll and makes a run. Midway may be that team. The Elks will be outmanned in this one, the Panthers roll.
Midway 45 Burleson 20

Stephenville vs. Trophy Club Nelson

 

The Jackets faced an old foe in the opening round of the playoffs as they downed the Everman Bulldogs 49-23. After a hard fought first half Everman mistakes started to mount and the Jackets took advantage on the scoreboard. Tyler Jones had a big night as he accounted for all 6 of the offensive touchdowns. He threw for 4 and ran for another 2. Braden Coverdale scored his 2nd INT return for a TD on the year. This one a 40 yarder that nailed the coffin shut..

 

Stephenville plays in the big house this week as they take on Trophy Club Byron Nelson in the area round of the playoffs. Nelson in just their 2nd year of varsity play beat Fort Worth OD Wyatt last week 49-20. This will obviously be the first meeting between the two programs. Lets take a look at the match up.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Nelson is a shotgun spread team. They are pretty balanced running and throwing the football. They do a good job of spreading the ball around. Running back Blake is a track standout and the sophomore has made his presence felt. He is averaging 7.6 yards a carry. Lexa is their leading receiver and a big playmaker on both side of the ball. Mitchell has 500 yards rushing to go along with his 1500+ yards passing. .

 

Defense
Even with this being Nelson's first senior class they start 7 underclassmen on defense. It has showed with inconsistent play. The Bobcat D has had good games and had some games where they couldn't stop the other team. Walker at defensive end is their best down lineman. Dotson is the best LB and one of the leading tacklers from last year. Lexa is the best cover man in the secondary..

 

Special Teams
Nelson's kicking game is solid. They will both pooch and kick it deep on kickoffs. Lexa is the punt returner and Tylor Blake and Drew Dehaven are the deep men on kick return.


Prediction

The Jackets experience and momentum should be to much for the Bobcats to overcome. You can bet that they will be fired up and emotional early on but after the game settles into its groove the Jackets will take control.
Stephenville 45 Nelson 17


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

 

Killeen Kangaroos (7-4) vs. FW Arlington Heights Yellowjackets (9-2): The Roos rolled through Granbury last week 36-3. This is a talented team that if they get hot could make a run. Heights pulled a slight upset as they sneaked by Birdville 14-13. Killeen should have another convincing win before things get considerably tougher.
Killeen 38 Arlington Heights 10

 

Midway Panthers (8-2) vs. Saginaw Boswell Pioneers (7-4): Midway rolled the Burleson Elks 35-13. This game was 35-0 before the Elks scored 2 late 4th qtr. Boswell won a shootout with FW Southwest 41-38. 8-4A continues to show its strength as the Panthers pounce on the Pioneers.

Stephenville vs. Lake Dallas

 

Stephenville came out and took care business last week against Byron Nelson. It was a complete team performance as the Jackets scored on offense, defense, and special teams. You could feel the energy in the crowd when Stephenville standout Aiavion Edwards returned to the field for his first carry in 9 weeks. Edwards who played every other series finished with 9 carries for 65 yards and 2 receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown. I look for his work load to increase even more this week. That will free up Witt Westbrook to return to his defensive duties.

 

Things get considerably tougher from here on out in the playoffs. This week the Jackets take on a potent Lake Dallas squad at Northwest ISD Stadium in Justin. The Falcons will feature a vaunted offensive attack with a defense that has been playing well as of late. Lake Dallas started the year off 3-3 but have won 6 games in a row. Let's take a look at the macthup.

Key Personnel and Scouting Report

 

Offense
Lake Dallas has a very potent offensive attack. They are going to spread the field and throw the ball around about 70% of the time. The Falcons attack is led by three D1 prospects, most notably QB Dalyn Williams. Williams has thrown for over 3600 yards and 34 TDs and chipping in 10 more TDs on the ground. Although Williams is the leading rusher yards wise, Stanford commit Dontonio Jordan is another deadly running threat with nearly 700 yards and 12 TDs. Williams does a very good job of spreading the ball around as 5 receivers have at least 500 yards receiving. The talented WR corp is led by Ferrando Joseph. Joseph is a big talent who can make the difficult catch. The Falcon OL has good size and have been outstanding in protecting their star QB.

 

Defense
Lake Dallas' base defense is really a multiple 4-3 that plays more like a 4-2-5 (TCU style defense). Junior DE Schantz is their best down lineman, Parsons is the best LB, and Roman Mitchell has been their best playmaker in the secondary. The Falcons are young up front and it has showed as they are giving up nearly 200 yards a game on the ground. The secondary has some good athletes and they have done a better job of stopping the pass than the run.

 

Special Teams
The Falcons kicking is solid. They will both pooch and kick it deep. #16 Brandon Womack is the place kicker and he can reach the endzone on kickoffs. Jordan and Tony Green are the deep men on kick returns. The punter is #12 Marshal Dominy and he is a left footed rugby style punter..


Prediction

Lake Dallas possibly could be the best offense Stephenville has seen since Aledo. The Falcons passing attack will present some matchup problems for the Jackets on defense. Offensively Stephenville should be able to move the ball and score consistently. We could be in for a shoot out. The Wardogs will give up some points but make enough stops for the "W".
Stephenville 49 Lake Dallas 38


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

 

Killeen Kangaroos (8-4) vs. Wichita Falls Rider Raiders (9-3): Rider has been playing great lately and have one of the top rushing attacks in the region. The Roos will have a hard time with ROHO's physical style. Killeen's run comes to an end.
Rider 31 Killeen 21

 

Midway Panthers (9-2) vs. Denton Ryan Raiders (12-0): Midway in my opinion was the best all-round team the Jackets played all year. Ryan on the other hand has one of the most talented defenses in all of 4A. The Raider offense has been inconsistent most of year. I am picking Midway in a slight upset. This marquee game has the makings of a defensive slobber knocker.
Midway 17 Ryan 14

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
