Longhorns storm the field


Last Thursday, September 24 the JV Black football team lost their first district game 14-0. The team played hard and were on the brink of scoring twice in the fourth quarter by Brock Davenport on offense and Greyson Watson on defense. Their next district game is against the Foster Falcons at home.  The JV maroon football team traveled to Stafford on Thursday night and beat the Spartans 28-6. David Fisher led the way with 3 touchdown runs. Christian Davis scored the other touchdown. Topher Hepp ,Cameron Campbell, and Tanner Thornton led the defensive effort. The horns are off this week and will open district play at Foster the following week.  The Freshman Maroon football team hosted Navasota this past Thursday night and improved to 5-0 with a 28-6 victory. The offense was led by the offensive line up front with Jay’Ren Miller scoring 3 times and T McGee once. Michael Molina was able to convert all 4 of his PATs for the Longhorn 28. The defense kept the Rattlers out of the end zone and was led by Treshaun Marshall, Travis Lefall, Dalen Swain, Garrett Arredondo, Raul Zepeda, and Brayden Turner. The lone Rattler points came on a kickoff return late in the game. The Maroon team will be off next Thursday and will open district play on October the 8th against Foster here at The Ranch.
