Now that the first week of the season is in the in the books it’s time for the next chapter of the season to unfold. As we head into the second week, here is a quick look at some of the top quarterback performances in the 6A classification.
Sam Ehlinger – The Austin Westlake quarterback threw 256 yards and a score as the Chaparrals fended off the defending 6A Division II state champion Katy Tigers in a 32-29 victory. Ehlinger completed 18-of-30 passes and ran for an additional 63 yards.
His clutch playmaking ability transpired on the field when he was able to scramble out the pocket to connect with wide receiver Andrew Boykin for a 17-yard score with 2:25 remaining to help preserve the victory. Not bad for the gritty UT commit who revealed through a text message on Saturday that he tore the medial meniscus in his left knee and lateral meniscus in his right.
The injury does not seem to be too severe as he is not expected to need surgery or miss any time due to it. Austin Westlake’s next opponent will be a home game against Liberty from Henderson, Nevada.
Shawn Robinson – Shawn Robinson was magnificent in his debut for the DeSoto Eagles. An 11-for-16 performance with two passing touchdowns to go along with his 100 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns helped DeSoto rout Jesuit 47-13.
DeSoto’s next opponent is Denton Guyer, the former school of Shawn Robinson and sure to be a big game.
Cade Schrader – The Keller Timber Creek quarterback put on a passing clinic against Irving Nimitz to help his team come out with a 49-48 victory. Schrader ended his night on 20-for-24 through the air for 421 yards and four touchdowns. Timber Creek’s next game will be on the road against Azle.
Cal Vincent – The San Angelo Central Bobcats beat the Abilene Eagles 63-26. Much of that is in due part to quarterback Cal Vincent who had accounted for 481 total yards and six total touchdowns in his first varsity start.
He went 14-of-21 for 225 passing yards and three touchdowns and also showed his dual-threat ability with 256 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.
San Angelo has a road competition against Trophy Club Byron Nelson.
