Parker County football game capsules — Week 6



Springtown Porcupines 

(2-3, 0-0)

Last week: Idle.

Players to watch: DE/TE Bryson Burtnett (6-5, 225, 4.6), QB Colby Moore, RB Tyler Robertson, DL Kolyn Waldrop, WR Caleb Whiteman, P/K/ WR Javier Reynoso

Game notes: Kennedale took heavy losses to graduation, sporting just three returning starters to the 2012 roster. The defense was hurt the most, and may not yet be up to normal Wildcat calibre just yet, giving up nearly 38 points per game. The long-used Wing-T offense, despite the Kennedale youth continues to produce, albeit 92 percent on the ground.

Pojo would love to trip up the Wildcats to get a big-bang start on its district slate. Starting QB Colton Moore returns to the no-huddle this week after an injury sidelined him during the Gainesville affair, but the Porcupines have padded the depth chart at quarterback after a good showing by freshman Landry Turner in the Graham loss. 


Millsap vs. 

Corsicana Mildred

Time: 7:30 p.m., Friday

Site: Bulldog Stadium

Type: District 6-2A match 

Last year’s result: Did not play.  

Mildred Eagles (4-1, 2-0)

Last season: 13-1 overall, 5-0 in District 6-2A

    Class 2A Div.II Reg. II State semi-finalist.

Last week: Beat Rio Vista, 56-7

Players to watch: QB Nic Shimonek (6-3, 190, 5.0). RB/S Draylon Sterling, LB/TE Jonathan Harrison, CB/RB Jeremy Ballard, LB Mikey Muncey. 

Millsap Bulldogs (0-5, 0-2)

Last season: 3-7 overall, 1-5 in District 4-2A

Last week: Lost to Rio Vista, 31-7

Players to watch: OL/DL Payton Vandeveer, WR/DB Shawn Harper, OL/DL Mitchell Coker, WR/DB Daulton Thomas, RB Kristian Martinez

Game notes: Millsap's young roster gets no break this week, as Mildred travels from Corsicana looking for its third-straight district win. 

The Bulldog defense, led in tackles last week by Dylan Burton and Dalton Norris, is tasked with slowing an Eagles' offense as prolific in the air as on the ground.

Most pressing for Millsap, if not for an improved record but at least a confidence boost, is to get its offense on track by putting more points on the board. The Bulldogs have struggled to perpetuate and close drives with a positive conclusion, which has resulted in recording  less than a touchdown per game. Getting accustomed to crossing the goal line will net some wins down the stretch.
