Stars of the Week

Andre Brackens' Parish Episcopal team lost for the first time in 2008 to Dallas Christian, led by QB Corey Brooks. Brackens turned in his usual spectacular performance though. He had 11 carries for 101 yards, scoring on a 25 yard TD run and a 2 point conversion. Andre also showed he has nice hands, hauling in 5 catches for 61 yards.

Broderick Jackson's Kirbyville team destroyed previously unbeaten Shelbyville. Jackson was the star of the show, rushing for 187 yards on just 17 carries. Broderick had 3 touchdowns on the night - scoring on runs of 6 and 11 yards; and a 6 yard pass reception also for a score. Kirbyville is 5-0 and ranked in the Top 10 statewide in 3A.

Clemens Running Back Charles Ross was also spectacular this past weekend. In a 35-21 win over Boerne Champion, Charles had an 80 yard kickoff return for a touchdown, a 59 yard touchdown run, and added a third touchdown on a 13 yard sprint. In limited action Ross had 88 yards on 12 carries.

Still playing with a plate in his hand, Jarek Lancaster of San Antonio O'Connor came up just short in his game against arch-rival San Antonio Clark. O'Connor lost 31-30. Lancaster turned in respectable passing numbers - 7-of-11 for 60 yards; but was much more impressive running the ball. Lancaster used his 4.5 second 40 yard dash speed to rush for 122 yards on 16 carries, scoring 3 TDs in the process.
