The Morning After – Breaking Down All That Was In Texas High School Football’s Week Eight

| | ,

Offensive Stat Monster – Deondrick Glass, Katy Tigers, RB

Lots of players had better overall stats than Glass, but the one that sticks out to me is pretty simple: 8 carries, 5 touchdowns, 5 touchdowns in a row before being pulled. Glass has been a monster all season, and he was clinical against Morton Ranch last night.

Insane Play(s) Of The Week

There were surely many more, but these were the ones that definitely caught my eye.

Most Surprising Score Of The Night

Mansfield Legacy 45, Waxahachie 33

Waxahachie, ranked 6th in the AP poll, fell to a pretty good Mansfield Legacy team by a few points too many. The Indians definitely have their vulnerabilities like every other team, but it was assumed at this point that they wouldn’t lose by multiple scores in district. We were all wrong, but Waxahachie still has some time to fix the mistakes before playoffs.

“Where Was The Defense?!” Game Of The Week

West Brook overcame Lufkin behind a ridiculous amount of touchdowns. It’s not a surprise that they scored so much, how much they scored comes as the bigger shocker.

6-Man “Are We Sure This Isn’t Basketball” Score Of The Night

Once again, we remind you that this segment isn’t to talk trash about 6-Man. 6-Man football is great and can arguably be better than regular football.

Picture(s) Of The Night

We have this great silhouette shot and one from DCTF’s Mike Craven, who was on-site at the China Spring-La Vega game when the lights went out.

Five Teams That Impressed

Waco La Vega

Shutting down China Spring is never an easy thing, and La Vega held the Cougars to a mere 10 points en route to a 17-10 victory in one of the biggest games around the state.

Abilene Cooper

A week after upsetting previously unbeaten Lubbock Monterey, the Cooper Cougars upset previously unbeaten Lubbock Cooper, winning by multiple scores. A district that was thought to be a three-way competition between three Lubbock schools now has another contender from the edge of West Texas.

Pearland Dawson

What a win for the Eagles this past Friday night. They took down rival Pearland and set themselves up for a huge matchup with Alief Taylor at the end of the month. They’re 6-1 so far, and playing extremely well.

Hamlin 

What a win for the Pied Pipers, shutting down a potent Seagraves offense en route to a 17-0 victory over the Eagles. Hamlin is showing that they’re a real contender in 2A these past few weeks.

Trophy Club Byron Nelson

They aren’t a one-hit Johnny anymore: last week’s upset of Euless Trinity was backed up with a double digit victory over a pretty good Lewisville squad. Byron Nelson has done nothing but improve over this year, and are walking proof that pre-district records don’t matter at all.

Other Things That Should Be Mentioned

Insane Finishes All Over The State – Richland held on to beat Grapevine in the last seconds, Temple defeated Waco by a mere three points, and Gilmer edged out Gladewater in a really fun one.

Did Corsicana Score? – Corsicana appears to have not gotten in on this play in overtime.

If Corsicana didn’t actually get in here, that’s a devastating blow to Nacogdoches.

Who Broke Cameron Yoe? – The Yoemen seemed to be past a crushing 63-13 team to bigger China Spring, which makes this result even more quizzical. Rockdale beat Cameron Yoe 80-54 last night, and if the Yoemen can’t get better on defense, there might be a few more results like that one this year.
