Leading the way for the Tigers on offense was 2015 stud runningback Julius Lewis. The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder racked up 188 rushing yards and scored on runs of 55 and 28 that helped seal the win.
"That win was big for us, especially after we lost our first two (games) in district," Lewis said. "The senior class lost to them two years in a row so we really needed that."
Only a sophomore, the humble Lewis said all he did on the night was make sure he made a contribution to the team.
"It feels great, I'm just out there contributing to the team," Lewis said. "I'm doing what I can do."
After a quick Cedar Hill score, Mansfield answered on Lewis' 55-yard run.
"We really needed it, especially since Cedar Hill score first," he said.
Lewis has the benefit of running behind two D-1 offensive linemen; Zach Crabtree who is an Oklahoma State commit and Austin Davis who is committed to Duke. What message did the line have for him during the game?
"The offensive line is just telling me to get first downs and not get negative plays," Lewis said.
Lewis has rushed for 945 yards on 97 carries and scored 10 touchdowns in 2012. He also has 4 catches for 64 yards.
