State Football Championship Recap

Photo by Steve Young

 

If you were looking for compelling storylines, then you need not look further than this past week’s Texas High School Football state championships from AT&T Stadium in Arlington. From the first female to score points, to some of the most unbelievable finishes you could ever imagine, this year’s state games simply had a little bit of everything for fans of the game. Below is a recap some of those top moments.

 

Rockdale wins 2nd state championship in school history

It did not look good in the early going, but Rockdale erased what was a 21-point deficit to win their second title in school history, 45-29. The Tigers simply played about as bad as you could have expected in the opening quarter and change, as the defense gave up the big play while the offense could not get going and turned the ball over. That all translated to a 21-0 deficit early in the second quarter.

Yoemen use 25-point 4th to get by Hearne

For a majority of Tuesday’s 20-3A opener, things did not look good for the home team. Cameron had only scored four points in the first quarter and trailed by 5 at the half. The Yoemen never wavered, cutting the Hearne lead to just 1 after three before exploding for 25 points in the fourth to seal the victory, 61-57.

 

Youth came through in a big way for Coach Burns’ squad on this night. While veterans LaRondre Booze and Keanu McCarter were held to quite nights with just 1 bucket a piece, sophomores Kobe Young and Calvin Stewart were there to pick up the slack, combining for 30 of Cameron’s 61 points on the evening.

 

“We knew we were going to be young and we were going to have to depend on some youth,” said Yoe coach Nicholas Burns. “We have quite a few guys that did not even play varsity ball last year and now they have been thrust into the spotlight. Calvin, Kobe and Nico all stepped up.”

Ladies struggle early, pick it up late to deny Hearne

Hearne has not won a 20-3A district ball game in some time. They did pretty much everything in their power to try and change that on Tuesday in a clash with Cameron from Yoe Gym. Hearne led the Lady Yoe 20-18 at the half and only trailed by 2 at the end of three before Cameron awoke and put the foot on the accelerator in the fourth for a 41-31 win.

 

“Hearne had just lost their best player last week and they came in here and played like they wanted it,” said Lady Yoe coach Corey Cunningham following the game. “We weren’t quite ready for their physicality and it caught us off guard. It was back and forth the first three quarters and then in the fourth we started converting some of those turnovers into points.”
