Highlight of last season was beating Waco Reicher in a back and forth game on Senior Night. It was a last second scheduling after a district opponent had to cancel due to COVID. Reicher would eventually finish the season as the state runner up.
Our O and D line were inexperienced going into last season. They gained a lot of experience and we need them to take a big step forward this year. We have strong QB, passing game and linebackers heading into 2021.
We put together an intentionally tough schedule to prepare us for the playoffs. Holy Cross will give us a very difficult early test. We expect our district games to be tough across the board.
We expect to finish strong and believe we should be competing for a State Title.
QB Levi Hancock is a true dual threat QB who racked up 39 total touchdowns in 9 games (27 passing and 12 rushing). At 6′2, 225lbs, he recently clocked at 4.61 in the 40. Hancock combines speed, power and a rocket arm. He is the reigning District Player of the Year and will only get better.
WR Ryan Burtin is a threat whenever the ball is in his hands, he can take a handoff or screen and make people miss just as well as beat people deep. He racked up 963 all purpose yards in 9 games and 7 touchdowns.
WR Hayden Tillery is poised for a big year. A taller body type who can win the jump ball, Tillery has gotten much faster after track season and will be a nightmare matchup for CBs.
RB Harris Powers is capable of hurting defenses as both a running and receiving threat. He racked up 643 all-purpose yards and 4 TDs last year.
LB Stryker Gay is an exciting, playmaker who is reigning Defensive Player of the Year for the district. He racked up 112 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 INT and 2 FR on the year.
LB Harris Powers has racked up over 200 tackles in the past 2 years, and has been a steady presence at OLB, daring people to run his way.
LB Davis Carroll has been valuable beyond his stats, taking the leadership of the defense and getting everyone lined up and ready to go.
