Week 6 Wrap

Week 7 Wrap

2010 Texas commits

Connor Wood, Second Baptist quarterback: Wood helped Second Baptist continue their winning ways in district, moving to 5-0 with a 29-6 victory by completing 18 of 30 passes for 300 yards and two touchdowns. Running the football, Wood added 29 yards on eight carries.

Case McCoy, Graham quarterback: In perhaps the best storyline of the week, Brad McCoy's Graham team met Bob Shipley's Brownwood squad for a huge district contest, eventually won by Brownwood after McCoy ran 17 yards for what appeared to be the game-tying touchdown late, but Brownwood blocked the extra point to win, 28-27. McCoy threw for 409 yards on the night, completing 24 of 39 passes for four touchdowns, but dropped passes by Steer receivers hurt the cause. McCoy added 43 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown on the ground.

John Harris, Naaman Forest quarterback: Naaman Forest had a bye week.

Traylon Shead, Cayuga running back: Cayuga had a bye week.

Darius Terrell, DeSoto wide receiver/tight end: With two players preparing for games at the University of Texas, DeSoto beat Mesquite by the popular score of 52-10, helped by seven receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown by Terrell.

Carrington Byndom, Lufkin cornerback: Byndom intercepted a pass in the end zone in Lufkin's 51-20 romp against The Woodlands College Park and also made a tackle to stop a fake punt.

Malcolm Brown, Cibolo Steele running back: Steele fell to Kerrville Tivy, 38-34, but it wasn't because of Brown, who 329 yards on 34 carries and four touchdowns. Gaylon Krizak described his best play, which wasn't even a 69-yard touchdown run:

On a simple handoff over right guard on first-and-17 from midfield, Brown hurdled a tackler near the line of scrimmage, bowled over another about 10 yards upfield and later eluded another who fell while being juked and tried to trip Brown with a leg whip.

Herschel Sims, Abilene running back: The undefeated Eagles rolled Reggie Willson's Haltom squad, 63-0, and clinched a playoff berth in the process. Only playing in the first half, Sims scored three touchdowns and totaled 170 yards rushing and receiving, catching a 31-yard screen pass for a touchdown and scoring on runs of one and 28 yards.
