Parker County football game capsules — Week 8



Brock vs. Tornillo (at Sweetwater)

Time: 7:30 p.m., Friday

Site: Mustang Bowl

        1205 Ragland, Sweetwater

Type: Regular season game

Last year’s result: N/A

Tornillo Coyotes  (4-4)

Last season:2-7 overall (No UIL schedule)

Last week: Lost to Dexter (NM), 40-2

Players to watch: QB/DB Ivan Rodriguez; RB/DL Hector Escalante; 

RB Abraham Iglesia; LB Adrian Elias; RB/DL Victor Garcia.

Brock Eagles (5-2)

Last season: 2-0 varsity record

Last week: Idle

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

Game notes: A week off has given the Eagles a chance to heal the bumps and bruises, as well as any ego rehab after suffering just its second loss of the season against a savvy Fort Worth Christian team that put up 28 points in the first quarter. Brock composed itself during the remainder of the contest, with the Eagles defense pitching a second-half shutout and the offense getting into the end zone twice.

After stringing together four wins, the defeat, however distasteful to the Eagles, could pay dividends as they prepare for the final two games of its varsity-orientation season.

The run game was the most inhibited last week, but QB Seth Boleman completed 7-of-10 passes, close to the normal fare for Brock’s aerial attack. The Eagles continue to involve multiple players in the mix on offense, with Kolbin Mills contributing in the FWC game running as well as catching the ball, while also handling duties at defensive end.

Tornillo has a run-based offense and will introduce at least a half-dozen platooning ball carriers at the Eagles during the course of the contest. Brock should be able to keep its 10-1 defense mostly in the box this week, while hoping its own offense will be able to return to its high-volume production.
