Brenham QB Let's Game Play Speak For Him

While we love bringing you a good portion of high school news and updates, we also want to feature some of the state's top athletes. Today, we feature Brenham quarterback Ty Schlottmann.

From the start of the area playoff game last week between Brenham and Port Neches-Groves, it seemed as though the Cubs would have been on the winning end of a route, scoring 20 unanswered points in the first half.

But the Indians did not lie down and turned this Friday nigh playoff game into a good one. In the end, Brenham ended up winning the area round match up at Aldine ISD Thorne Stadium 27-21.

And it took all 48 minutes to make it happen.

"Wow, it's unbelievable to come away winning this game. We have been hearing all week how our offense would not be able to get anything going against them and that our defense could not stop their offense," Brenham quarterback Ty Schlottmann said. "I mean we came out and got 17 points quick which was good. Of course, it was kind of crazy at the end, but we pulled out the win."

Speaking on the first, it was obvious that the defense set the tone here with this one. Many hard hits and three and outs, set up the Cub offense to do their thing. 

Schlottmann explains.

"It helps a lot with field position and just builds confidence in our offense to go out and score when our defense plays well like that," Schlottmann said of his defense that gave up 286 total yards. "To see your defense stopping a great offense like that gets you excited.

"For me, I was just trying my best to take what the defense gave me. My offensive line gave me the time and receivers made some great catches."

The 6-foot 173-pound Schlottmann was making the throws needed to come away with the win. Early on, it was Troy Green out of the backfield making the catches, but when Schlottmann wanted to go downfield, Derek Edwards was the one likely on the receiving end.

For the night, Schlottmann was 14-of-21 for 160 yards and a score passing. On the ground, he had 116 yards and a touchdown.

With this win behind them now, the Cub team gets ready for a bigger test against a team predicted to play in mid December, Angleton. Brenham and the Cats will face off this Saturday at 2 p.m. at Conroe ISD Woodforest Stadium.

And while this match up may be one of the toughest the Cubs have played in all year, what is the mentality in the locker room?

"We feel like we can go all the way. There is a lot of confidence on this team," Schlottmann said. "This team is close. No fights and we all get along because this team is amazingly close. Last year, we were almost there. But with all of us in the locker room, we feel like we can get through anything together."
