Combined, they’ve gone 48-125 for 704 yards, five touchdowns, and nine interceptions.

They do have weapons outside as well in Davashtian Manely, Derrick Taylor, and Adrian Flores. Manely is the team leader in catches and yards with 17 and 241 respectively while Taylor leads the receivers in touchdowns with three. Flores has helped move the ball the most outside of those two with 10 receptions for 165 yards.

Elijah Stone leads the team in solo tackles with 28 and Taven White leads in total tackles with 79. Eric Paez Jr. follows up total tackles with 63 on the year. Auden Rivera, Stone, and White have five sacks between the three of them.

This Lake View team has been taking the ball away as they have 10 interceptions and five fumble recoveries in seven games. Michael Duran has four interceptions and White has two recoveries. Six players have one interception and three have the other three fumble recoveries.

Brownwood was ranked at 9th when they took on Stephenville, who coincidently is still ranked 1st in the state for 4A football. The Lions put it on the Big Spring Steers. In the first quarter, Lions’ running back Konlyn Anderson ran in a seven-yard score to put Brownwood ahead 7-0 after a successful kick. With about two minutes left in the first, Big Spring would cut the Lion’s lead 7-3.

In the second quarter, quarterback Chance Jones would throw a 31-yard pass to Jason Jackson Jr. for a touchdown and after another kick, the Lions led 14-3. Bid Spring would throw an interception to Case Markham and Anderson would reward his defense with a 4-yard rushing touchdown off the pick.

With about two minutes until halftime, Big Spring would turn the ball over on downs but this time the Steers would intercept with about one minute left in the half. They could not put-up points and the score remained 21-3.

Jackson Jr. would catch a 49-yard touchdown pass from Jones to put Brownwood up 27-3 after a failed conversion attempt. On the next Big Spring possession, the Steers fumble the ball which was recovered by the Lions. Brownwood drives the field and Jones throws another touchdown, this time to Thad Hinds to put the Lions in the lead 34-3 after the kick.

The Lions had possession at the beginning of the fourth quarter but threw another interception to Big Spring who completed a pass for a touchdown that, after a successful kick, made the score 34-10 with about nine minutes to play.

Anderson would turn in another rush for a touchdown to put the Lions up 41-10 after a good extra point.

Big Spring then threw an interception to Morsello Hooker with about three minutes left in the game and then another one with about one minute left.

The Lions would win 41-10 over the Steers.

If Lake View can limit the Lions offense by taking the ball away and controlling the clock, they’ve got a chance.
