Guyer beats Brennan, repeats in 4A Division I

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Quarterback Jerrod Heard accounted for 254 yards and three touchdowns and Denton Guyer repeated as Class 4A Division I champion with a 31-14 victory against San Antonio Brennan on Friday night.

Guyer (14-2) solved a Brennan defense that had allowed only five touchdowns all season. Brennan (15-1) hadn't trailed at all this year but never led in this game.

Heard rushed 22 times for 159 yards and touchdowns of 4 and 28 yards. He completed all nine of his passes for 95 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown to David Haynes.

Quarterback Da'Shawn Kay rushed 17 times for 127 yards and both Brennan touchdowns, from 11 and 37 yards, and passed for 123 yards.

Brennan hurt itself with turnovers and penalties that led to 10 Guyer points and negated a 23-yard run by Key that would have put the ball on Guyer's 2 late in the third quarter. The drive ended with a missed field goal.

Guyer, which beat Georgetown 48-37 for its first state title last year, also had a 33-yard touchdown run from D.J. Breedlove in the fourth quarter and a 20-yard field goal from Brad Grems in the third.

Haynes' touchdown catch came with 5:40 to play in the first quarter, marking the first time the Bears trailed this year.

Brennan had forced Guyer to punt, but the ball bounced near midfield and brushed against return man Jaelan Collier as he was trying to avoid it. Guyer's Remmington Reed made the recovery at Brennan's 45.

Guyer set up to punt from its 35 on fourth-and-3 early in the second half but kept possession thanks to an offside penalty against Brennan and soon added the field goal to move ahead 17-7.

Guyer lost its opener to Cedar Hill, which will play for the 5A Division II championship on Saturday, and had to forfeit its second-week victory against Colleyville Heritage because of an ineligible player. Guyer officially ran off 14 consecutive wins.

The Guyer players wore helmet decals featuring No. 33 in honor of Nate Maki, a senior who died days after the season opener in a shooting accident. In the game's closing seconds, Guyer fans chanted Maki's name.
