Finally! Texas high school football has returned. A note to those who were searching for our Denton Record-Chronicle preseason magazine this morning. I feel your pain … it WAS scheduled to drop today, but unfortunately, no one received it unless they were a subscriber. Somehow, it was left out of the papers on newsstands and will be re-inserted into Friday’s paper. In the meantime, here’s the online version (Football mag). I’ve already personally dropped off a handful at Ryan, and will try to make more rounds today. Sorry again folks, but it will be worth the wait!
Now for the purpose of this blog. Ryan at Rockwall. It should be a good one between two teams that fought a close battle last year. Ryan struggled last season, but was one of only two teams to hold Rockwall — which finished 12-1 — to 26 points or less. That’s impressive considering the Yellowjackets averaged just more than 53 points last year. Rockwall lost some weapons, namely running back Chris Warren (Texas) and receiver Xavier Castille (SMU), but always seems to reload. Ryan has sophomore quarterback Spencer Sanders, a host of weapons, and a defense with bite.
FYI … I will have a game advance in tomorrow’s paper. For now, here’s some quick info.
