The Richland Springs Junior Varsity gave the FEAST Homeschoolers some homework last Friday night in San Antonio. The lesson was on Six-Man football. The JV Coyotes put up 50 points again and again the game was called at halftime due to the mercy rule. Other than a lesson in humility the Patriots also learned that Six-Man football is not 11- man football cut in half. The plays and blocking schemes are completely different and the defensive players have a totally different set of rules and responsibilities. The Patriots were athletic and they were game enough, but the Coyote JV boys’ experience in six-man football was evident in every aspect of this game.
Coach Michael Brand suited up only 7 players for the game, two of which are Freshman, Storm Teel and Jacob Cohn, and each player was instrumental in completely dominating the Patriot offense. They did not allow the Homeschoolers even one first down. In fact, the defense scored 8 points on a blocked punt return and a safety. Stanley Butler blocked the punt and casually picked it up and strolled into the endzone like he was a tourist on the River Walk. Chris Munoz slammed a Patriot runner in the end zone for the safety. The Coyotes had enough tackles for losses to limit the Patriots to zero yards rushing from scrimmage and no pass completions. Dillon Parker, Storm Teel, Jacob Cohn, Wyatt Ramsey all came up big on defense in a true team effort.
Stanley Butler had another great game with the blocked punt return for a touchdown and another score from 8 yards out. Justin Trevino, playing his best game of the year, threw two nice touchdown passes and ran for a score and notched many key tackles on defense. Chris Munoz got credit for the safety and caught two Trevino passes, one for 72 yards and another for 40 yards and scored touchdowns on both. Munoz was all over the field on defense rocking the Patriots with bone-jarring tackles. Jacob Cohn scored on a sweep behind a wall of Coyote blockers from 15 yards out, and Dillon Parker was perfect kicking the extra points going 6 for 6 for 12 points.
The 3-1 JV Coyotes will take on the Gustine Tigers this Thursday at 7:30 PM at Coyote Field. Be there to support your Coyotes!!!
