Odessa (3-3, 0-1) vs San Angelo Central (4-2, 1-0)

Central’s Hill posted season low numbers through the air but when Midland is eating clock like they do, they only attempted one pass, numbers are difficult to come by. It really didn’t matter as his arm threw two touchdown and he had 125 yards on the ground. Altogether, Central managed 190 yards on the ground, four touchdowns, and posted 284 yards combined.

The Bobcat defense stood up and clamped down in the redzone a few times. Andrew Gonzalez burst through the line for a strip sack fumble that was recovered by Darius Floyd and James Burney caused two fumbles himself.

Overall, Hill had gone 87-140 for 1,044 yards, nine touchdowns against two interceptions. Hill’s contributions on the ground have been part of the Bobcat’s success as he’s got 66 carries for 847 yards and 11 touchdowns. Javion Robinson, Brawley, and Barron combine for 117 carries for 617 yards and eight touchdowns.

Five receivers have gone for over 100 yards with English leading the team in receptions and yards with 15 for 242 and four touchdowns. Ben Imler and Tyler Walker follow that with 179 and 191 yards respectively and three touchdowns.

Ivan Carreon carries the receiver room with 32 catches for 738 yards and eight touchdowns. Sophomore Brendyn Thompson is second with 295 yards and three touchdowns. Two players have just over 100 yards receiving.

Wiki DeLeon has 37 total tackles through five games and the defense only has three and a half sacks according to Maxpreps. The Bronchos have two interceptions on the season.

Permian did a very good job controlling the game against Odessa and only allowed 127 yards rushing and 36 yards passing. Jalen Warren had 129 kick return yards and scored the Bronchos lone touchdown.

Odessa has scored an average of 28.5 yards a game and has given up 35 yards a game. Central has been putting up 40 points a game and have given up 36.5 points a game. The Bobcats are also riding a three-game win streak.
