Last season: 3-7 overall, 2-5 in District 4-5A

Last week: Idle

Players to watch: OG Hayden Davis (6-1, 250, 5.4), OT Jordan Gray (6-3, 286, 5.6), C Sammy Stephens (6-2, 253, 5.6), DE Slade Hodge (6-2, 200, 4.8), DT Kent Sanner (6-1, 232, 4.9), DT Andrew Cape (5-11, 270, 4.9), QB Grant Werts, RB Jeuqwan Brownlee, RB Fred Brownlee.

Game notes: Bowie adjusted its offensive philosophy in the offseason with the emergence of its junior passing quarterback, Keaton Perry, who was also a running threat, until going down to a leg injury in the Vols second game. Enter receiver and QB backup Tony James, and a change in the offensive scheme, as head coach Kenny Perry (Keaton's dad) had to retool the attack plan.

James was effective in his first start, accounting for more than 275 yards and five TDs running and throwing to beat Dallas Skyline two weeks ago. Barring the return of Perry, James will be at the helm again on Friday.

But the defense has been the main concern for Bowie, thus far. While its schedule has been no cake walk, Vols defenders have yielded 350 yards and 38 points per game, putting pressure on the offense to keep lighting up the scoreboard.

 A bit beat up themselves, Weatherford welcomed the off week, entering the bye with a win over Burleson, a positive reminder of sweet victory as the tough district schedule looms. The Roo offense has been a pleasantly-balanced one through three contests, granting some relief from opposing defenders over-stacking the box. 

The second and third lines of opposing defenses may also need to stay at home due to the burst of speed provided thus far by Fred (sophomore) and Jeuqwan (freshman) Brownlee, who pose running and receiving threats. In just a handful of touches in the Burleson game, Jeuqwan produced more than 100 yards of offense, while Fred took in a 14-yard Werts pass to close out the first half.
