Parker County football game capsules — Week 4 — Ode to the O-line

(Continued)

 

Game notes: In the past two weeks, Eagles head coach Chad Worrell has seen his young team win in a come-from-behind thriller at a venue in Sweetwater, followed by a totally dominating performance over a previously unbeaten Chico team riding high in its first home game of the season.

The run game has been the bread-n-butter of the Brock offense, bolstered by a line that has shown resilience in varied situations. Brock throws sparingly, but effectively, with good protection from the line.

“All of our O-Linemen are first year varsity starters,” said assistant coach Casey Jones. “We are very young, but we have improved greatly since the beginning of August practice.

“We are averaging 250 yards rushing per game  through our first four games.”

Coach Worrell will love to see a district schedule in the 2014 season with opponents within a modest driving distance. So too will the Brock coffers who are gassing up the bus for the Eagles road show this season. After a short jaunt to Chico last week (a comparative stroll across the street), Brock and its faithful head back out west to face the Winters Blizzards.

The Eagles take on the formidable trek to Blizzard Stadium after already journeying to Sweetwater two weeks ago, with yet another trip to the Mustang Bowl slated for Oct. 25. Regardless of the outcome of Brock’s ‘outlaw’ schedule this year, they will certainly be well-traveled for the future, just in case postseason demands be thrust upon them. 

The curiously monickered Winters team made a respectable run in last season’s playoffs, advancing to the regional semifinals, but have had a rough start this season, with just one win. 

Momentum is decidedly with the Eagles for the moment and they certainly hope to keep it that way for a happy trip home on Friday.
