Parker County football capsule — Week 10

WEATHERFORD —  

 

Springtown vs.

FW Diamond Hill-Jarvis 

Time: 7 p.m., Thursday

Site: Farrington Field

        1501 University Drive, Fort Worth

Type: District 6-3A match

Diamond Hill-Jarvis Eagles (0-9, 0-4)

Last year: 0-10 overall, 0-4 in District 6-3A

Last week: Lost to Castleberry, 53-0

Players to watch: RB Zeith Ortiz-Perez, QB Sammy Gonzalez, OL/LB Raul Baeza.

Springtown Porcupines (5-4, 3-1)

Last week: Beat Mineral Wells, 47-6.

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: Sometimes teams just get into a funk. Fort Worth’s Diamond Hill-Jarvis (0-9) is in one of those bad streaks, to put it mildly. Last week, in its 53-0 loss to Castleberry (3-6), the Eagles netted total offense of less than 40 yards and failed to complete a pass. And the whole season has not been much better for the beseiged squad.

DH-J last tasted victory in September, 2010. Since beating Dallas Jefferson, the Eagles have suffered an 0-26 stretch. In District 6-3A play, Diamond Hill has yet to cross the goal line.

Springtown, on the other hand, is on an upsurge. Making a clear statement to Mineral Wells last Friday that the Rams-over-Porcupines spell is broken, Pojo has taken care of business each week since their second-half meltdown in the opening district game at Kennedale. 

Springtown has won its three district contests since then by an average score of 55-8, with the defense approaching the level of play head coach Brad Turner has expected of the group. Josh White (LB), Thomas Loving (DE) and James Teddar (LB) combined efforts against the Rams for 22 tackles (5 for losses) and a sack.

Pojo’s offense has exploded during the 3-game stretch for more than 1,350 yards, with a 53 to 47 percent ratio in a very balanced attack.

The Porcupines should have an opportunity to take care of business again — early in the contest on Thursday — and give its starters plenty of spectator time to assure rest and health for postseason.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
