Richland Springs earns a D8 with F8 at AT&T Stadium...Domin8 Crowell... 92-62

By Mike Cohn

"EIGHT" is the buzzword and "DOMIN8" has been the war cry of the Mighty Coyotes of Richland Springs this year in their quest for a historical EIGHTH State Championship.

The Coyotes have "DOMIN8ED" !!!.....11 of their 13 victories were ended early due to the 45-point "Mercy Rule" and the other two contests, against top-ranked opponents, were decided by 30 points or more. The Coyote boys played their way into the Division 2, 6-Man State Championship game at Jerry Jones' fantastical hay barn in Arlington by soundly defeating the Crowell Wildcats last Friday night at Jim Ned Stadium in Tuscola...92-62.

This game was a real action packed barn-burner as the Wildcats featured a QB, that at 6'4" and 200+ pounds and a bonafide cannon for an arm, could possibly turn the heads of some D-1 college scouts. Crowell took to the airways 62 times, completing 31 passes for a gaudy 445 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Richland Springs advances to State Semi-Finals....Crush Calvert...86-36

By Mike Cohn

 

The Mighty Coyotes of Richland Springs invoked the Mercy Rule in last Saturday night's play-off contest with the Calvert Trojans in Hico. The game was billed as the match-up of the year....the #1 ranked Coyotes versus the #2 ranked Trojans. It couldn't get much better than that...the top two teams in Division 2 facing off in a Quarterfinal match-up. The shoot-out in the purported last home of Brushy Bill Roberts (aka Billy the Kid) turned into a 50-point embarrassing blow-out that was mercifully called off late in the third period.

The Trojans had some game and guts but these Coyotes are from a different planet in terms of football talent as a team.

Calvert threw the football 45 times, completing 28, mostly the short dump-off passes behind the line of scrimmage and amassed some 400+ yards of total offense.
