Instant Analysis: Lake Travis 41, The Woodlands 13

This is just an insanely athletic Lake Travis squad. 

Some prefer size. Some prefer speed. Lake Travis had it all in 2016, wrapped up in one explosive, dynamic bundle.

Everyone on this team can run. Heck, everyone on this team can shake too. They’re tough in addition to all of that. They’re fluid, moving seamlessly off blocks on defense and into gaps in the secondary on offense. If one gets injured, another just takes his place.

This is a team so athletic that the quarterback can pull down one-handed catches, where you can flex the tight end out to the slot and keep him in the formation at will. It’s just insane to watch, and even more difficult to describe without delving into extreme hyperbole.

Charlie Brewer showed everyone something tonight. 

The quarterback was completely dominant on both the ground and in the air. He was efficient as a passer, dynamic as a runner, and even pulled down a one-handed grab.

He’s a big part of the reason why LT is so good. His ability to deliver the ball to those in space should not be underestimated. He was lights out.

For The Woodlands, this isn’t the end. 

The support shown by the Texas High School football community at large in the wake of Grant Milton’s injury has been heartwarming. The Woodlands was outmatched tonight, but that doesn’t change the fact that they went 15-1, made it to Jerryworld, and had a great year.

If we talk about quarterbacks, we have to mention Eric Schmid. 

The TWHS signal caller gave it his all against a very good defense. Things didn’t end up his way tonight, but I’d bet he won some fans over across the state. He’s a gutty player, a tough runner, and he had a great year as well.

Final Thought: Lake Travis is an unstoppable killing machine. 

That early season loss to Judson and close call with Steele must have done something to the Cavs, because they were merciless the rest of the way. The closest anyone got to them was Smithson Valley, and LT still won by 19. How fun would a Lake Travis – DeSoto matchup be?
