Parker County football game capsules — Week 2


Springtown’s productive offense cannot always offset the difference in a high-scoring affair, and the Pojo comeback was hindered last week by three interceptions. The Porcupines’ offense took 94 snaps and totalled nearly 500 yards. Despite the three interceptions, which was countered with two Springtown fumble recoveries, that kind of production should suffice to carve another notch in the win column.

After four engagements on the road (including two scrimmages), Springtown is hoping home cooking will provide the nourishment its defenders need to muster stubborn and consistent resistance to opposing offenses. 


Brock vs. Booker 

at Sweetwater 

(Sammy Baugh Classic)

Time: 7:30 p.m., Friday

Site: Mustang Bowl

        1205 Ragland, Sweetwater

Type: Regular season game

Last year’s result: N/A


Booker Kiowas (2-0)

Last season: 9-4 overall, 2-1 in District 1-1A, Div. II

                    Class 1A, Div. II regional semifinalist

Last week: Beat Claude, 61-13

Players to watch: QB Hunter Lile (5-9, 170, 4.6), WR Jared Reagan (5-10, 175, 4.8), DE Daniel Guerrero (5-10, 195, 4.8), LB Christian DeSantiago (5-9, 202, 4.9), DB Tristan Guzman.


Brock Eagles (1-1)

Last season: 2-0 varsity record

Last week: Lost to Dallas Episcopal, 43-21.

Players to watch: QB Seth Boleman; QB/RB Travis Gough; RBs Leddy French, Kolbin Mills; O-linemen Jake Earl, Cooper Gore, Tyler Collier; D-line Hunter Pittman, Billy Tedford, Titus Gossett.


Game notes: Brock, in a season filled with firsts, adds another to the list on Saturday as a participant in a featured game in the Sammy Baugh Classic, to be held at Sweetwater’s Mustang Bowl. The Eagles’ opponent, Booker, is also making its debut at the showcase.

The Kiowas appear to be another quality team Brock has included in its outlaw schedule, albeit Class 1A. A regional semifinalist in 2012, Booker returns seven offensive starters and eight more starters on defense. After a close opening win over Spearman, Booker flexed its offensive muscle last week with a 61-13 thrashing of Claude. 

Junior quarterback Hunter Lile is the Kiowa spark plug, sporting a .700 completion percentage over the two games, and producing the lion’s share of the offense through the air. Jared Regan is a favored target, with 21 catches for more than 300 yards and four TDs. Lile also reigns as Booker’s leading rusher.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
