Season: Winner of District 7-3A (4-0)

Springtown Porcupines (6-5)

Season: Finished second in District 6-3A (4-1)

Last week: Beat Wichita Falls Hirschi, 49-27

Players to watch: LB Kolyn Waldrop (6-1, 225, 4.7), WR Ryan Hester (6-0, 190, 4.8), DB Collin Rector (5-7, 160, 4.7), RB Ryan Snow (6-1, 170, 4.6), WR Dillon Springfield (6-1, 160, 4.4), QB Landry Turner (5-10, 165), WR Dylan Ray (5-11, 160, 4.8).

 

Game notes: The Porcupines got over a significant hump last week, breaking its string of first-round playoff losses with the win over Hirschi. After the victory in the postgame huddle, head coach Brad Turner told his players that they would likely be playing the defending state champions and they would need to take the feeling of their bi-district win into the contest against the Yellow Jackets.

If Springtown has designs on playing a “perfect” game in 2013, this would be the optimal week to do so. It would certainly be Pojo’s signature win to date.

The passing game Springtown puts to the forefront of its offensive attack was effective enough last week, but it was the running game that sealed the win. The Porcupines eclipsed the 300-yard mark, with tailback Ryan Snow nearly topping 200 yards in 32 carries.

If Stephenville was hoping to keep pressure on quarterback Landry Turner as the singular way to halt the offense, Snow’s performance may have changed their approach. Snow has rushed past the 1,000-yard mark this season, so it was probably no great surprise to the Yellow Jackets.

As daunting as the Stephenville mystique has historically been, and last year’s title trophy hardly gathering dust, yet, the Yellow Jacket defense was anything but a shut-down unit this season ...  until they got to district play.
