Texada helps Centennial to 4th round

Ranthony Texada helped Centennial to the fourth round of the Texas class 4A playoffs last Friday.

Frisco (TX) Centennial made school history Friday night as they advanced further in the playoffs than they ever have before with a 40-14 win over Red Oak. With the win the Titans advanced to the fourth round of the class 4A Division I playoffs.

The Titans were led again by a balanced offense and stingy defense that Red Oak's offense had a hard time testing.

Cornerback Ranthony Texada was overjoyed knowing his team gets to continue their pursuit for the state championship.

"It was a big win for us, it was something we've wanted to do since we lost year in the third round," he said. "It was a big win."

Texada didn't have too busy of a night as the Owls only went his way three times.

"I get a couple balls thrown my way, but it benefits our team because our other guys can make plays," he said.

Although Texada wasn't tested much through the air, he did get some opportunities on special teams to make some big plays which included a few electric punt returns.

"It was big, I just want to help our offense get good field position," he said. "One of these games I'm going to break one sooner or later."

Centennial will take on Tyler John Tyler this Friday in Ennis and the Lions bring in one of the top offenses in the state with Greg Ward and four-star receiver Fred Ross. Texada is looking forward to the challenge.

"It's going to be a big time game, I can't wait," he said. "I know they like to throw the ball a lot so I think that works in our favor."
