Future Frog Tracker: Week 4
For some of TCU's top prospects in the 09' class, the road has been very tough thus far. With teams like Brownwood, Wichita Falls Rider, Beaumont Ozen and Brenham limping out of the gate, guys like Casey Pachall, Jurell Thompson, Justin Isadore and Trenton Thomas hope to help lead the second half turnaround for their respective teams. Here are this week's showdowns for your future Frogs.
Copperas Cove (3-0) vs. Killeen Ellison (2-1)
Tanner Brock and Josh Boyce will lead their 'Dawg teammates into a home field battle with district foe, Killeen Ellison. This will be Cove's first 5A district showdown on the year and they hope to make another deep playoff run, this time with the big boys of Texas football. Kickoff is at 7:30 PM tonight in Copperas Cove.
Maud (3-0) vs. Cumby (0-3)
The Maud Cardinals continue to roll and this weekend should be no different. The talented trio of future Frogs has made a huge impact in every game so far this year and continue to lead the most intimidating 1A team in the state. James Dunbar looks like a freight train coming out of the backfield and has compiled 19 carries for 182 yards and 5 TD's through three games. Bryant House has compiled 11 tackles, 6 knockdowns, 2 TFL and 3 hurries. Ray Burns has dominated the line with 12 tackles, 5 TFL, 3 sacks, 3 hurries and 5 FF. They should reach 4-0 in easy fashion. Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM tonight in Maud.
Waco Midway (2-1) vs. Cleburne (3-0)
Ty Horn and his Panther teammates will face their toughest test yet as 3-0 Cleburne rolls into town. Horn has looked impressive this year and looks to have added about 15-20 pounds since last year. It will be a tall task for the Midway Panthers to pull this one out but with Horn's leadership and never say die attitude, you never say never. Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM tonight in Waco.
Beaumont Ozen (0-2) vs. Nederland (0-1)
Justin Isadore hopes to lead his team to the win column after a tough 0-2 start and tough dealings with Hurricane Ike. Isadore is a hitting machine and his style of play has Horned Frog fans licking their chops. Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM tonight in Beaumont.
Sherman (2-1) vs. Frisco (0-3)
Ladanian Tomlinson clone, Waymon James has been nothing short of spectacular this season. Ranked as one of the nation's top runners, James has posted some impressive numbers to date. James has carried the ball 45 times for 457 yards and 8 Td's. He also has 10 receptions for 129 yards and two more scores. With 0-3 Frisco on the docket, look for James to run wild tonight at 7:30 PM in Frisco.
Brenham (0-2) vs. Montgomery (1-0)
Trenton Thomas and his Cub teammates look to rebound from a tough start to the 08' season. The Montgomery Bears will host the Brenham team as they try to live up to their proud history. Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM, Saturday night in Montgomery.
Bellaire Episcopal (1-1) vs. Greenhill (2-1)
John Wooldridge will once again try to pave the way for the offense and help lead his teammates into a tough showdown with Greenhill. Wooldridge has been dominating from the word go and will attempt to lead his team to their third victory on the young season. Kickoff is set for 7:30 PM tonight at Greenhill.
Wichita Falls Rider (0-3) vs. Denton Ryan (3-0)
Jurell Thompson and his Rider teammates hope to reverse the early season losing trend. The Raiders were expected to do great things this year but have stumbled out of the blocks. Things won't get any easier this week as the Denton Ryan Raiders come to town with a 3-0 record and plenty of talent all over the field. Thompson hasn't been used as much on offense this year although he took on an increased work load last week. On the season, Thompson has carried the ball 15 times for 75 yards and 1 TD with 10 of those carries coming last week. He continues to strike fear into offense players that dare to cross the middle while he's hawks the defensive backfield. Kickoff is set for 7:30 tonight in Wichita Falls.
Trinity Valley C.C (3-0) vs. Cisco college
The newest commit for the 2009 class is highly sought after, Malcolm Williams. Ranked as one of the best safeties in the country coming out of high school, Williams committed to Oklahoma. Although he never suited up for the Sooners, it's plain to see why OU and others were so high on this young man. Now standing 5-11 and weighing 205 pounds, the hard hitting safety prospect is a perfect fit for the punishing Gary Patterson defense. Kickoff is set for tomorrow night at 7 PM in Athens.
