FW Western Hills-Everman Scrimmage Report

It was the final pre-season tune up before the real thing starts next week! Find out how things went between Fort Worth Western Hills and Everman on Friday!

EVERMAN- On Friday evening at Marr Stadium, the Everman Bulldogs and Fort Worth Western Hills Cougars engaged in their final pre-season scrimmage before both teams open their 2007 season. Once again, Everman completely dominated an overmatched Fort Worth ISD opponent as from start to finish the Bulldogs utterly dismantled the Cougars. The scrimmage format featured each team's first offens getting 20 plays and the second offense getting 10 plays. The two teams then played two live 12 minute quarters with a running clock.

Western Hills' first offense took their field and there really wasn't much to write home about as the Cougars simply could not move the ball against a speedy and swarming Everman defense. In 20 plays the Cougars notched zero first downs and threw one interception. The Cougars who are transitioning from a run based Slot-T offense to more of a spread look and running some plays from the "pistol" formation. The Western Hills second offense fared somewhat better as they were able to hit a couple of long passes to move inside the Everman ten twice. The EHS second team defense stepped up each time as once they held the Cougars offense out of the end zone on downs and the second time they were able to notch an interception.

Everman's offense took the field and they wasted little time scoring as they moved 70 yards in 5 plays with C.J. Jennings scoring from 17 yards out. After a 51 yard run from QB Sedrick Harris, the Bulldogs notched a 19 yard touchdown run on a wingback reverse play for a quick 2 play drive. Four plays later Jennings struck again this time from 37 yards out as the Everman offensive line was completely dominant as they were simply blowing Western Hills off the ball. Everman then had a 4 play drive and Harris struck through the air throwing a 42 yard touchdown pass. Then on the play after the touchdown Jennings broke loose for a 70 yard touchdown run. Everman would cap a very productive offensive session as Harris on the 20th play from scrimmage threw a 39 yard touchdown pass to give the EHS first offense six touchdowns. Everman's second offense then took the field and they were able to throw up 3 touchdowns in their 10 plays of action, as EHS got touchdown runs of 48, 18 and 53 yards to up the touchdown tally to 9.

The two teams then played in the live action portion of the scrimmage, after forcing a Western Hills 3 and out Everman QB Harris hit a long 52 yard pass to set the Bulldogs up inside the WHHS ten and Jennings capped the drive with a 9 yard touchdown run, the PAT was true and Everman went up 7-0. The teams then traded punts, and Western Hills finally got a first down with their first team offense. However Everman snuffed that drive out with an INT. Jennings would cap another drive this time punching it in from 12 yards out and after the PAT it was 14-0. Western Hills once again punted and Everman would run the clock out after driving inside the Cougars 20.

Overall, Everman in two scrimmages has looked completely dominating while Western Hills took a step back this week with the big step up in competition after a three way scrimmage with Brewer and Lake Worth. Western Hills appears to still be learning their offense while the untested Everman secondary has yet to get tested. Next week Western Hills will host Denton High, while Everman travels to Kennedale.
