Kerrville OLH will be a handful for Bracken this Friday night at Warrior Stadium.
The Hawks have a very balanced attack averaging 150 yards rushing and 180 yards passing.
Senior Wide Receiver and Defensive Back Matthew Williams (#7) will be one of the Hawks that Bracken will need to control to have a chance in winning this game.
Connor Odom will also be a prime target for OLH’s passing attack from quarterback Hernandez (#2).
Defensively OLH has many players that will get their hands dirty in tackling the ball. Rance Frazier (#3), Connor Odom (#44), and Zach Ramsey (#45) are all capable of reaching double figures in tackles.
A worry for Bracken is how well OLH played against Austin Veritas in losing by just three points and having the lead until the end of that game.
Veritas had an easy go of it against Bracken earlier this year and this particular game gave BCS a wake up call on how tough this game could be to win.
Injuries and just not having enough players is still a major concern for this Warrior team as they scratch and claw their way into their last two games.
Winning the district will not be an option, but how BCS will be seeded for the playoffs as a wild card team will hinge on how Bracken finishes this race.
Bracken can certainly beat OLH but they will need to have all hands on deck in this game as there has been a Mash Unit setting up shop at each of Bracken’s practices as this season enters into it’s final stage.
Seniors will need to play lights out while the younger Warriors have now played enough games that they will need to up their game to get this job done.
This is a rivalry game as there is a lot of respect shared by both of these teams throughout their years of competition.
Quarterback Brady Beene will be returning for a full load as he has been playing limited action these past two weeks.
Noah Boriack is nursing some nagging hurts as well as Coy Zunker who would not tell you if he is hurting or not.
Jeff Camp will be another player that will need to help on both sides of the ball and of course those freshman like Thomas Johnson and Cristian DeLeon.
Turnovers will certainly be a key ingredient in getting this game to finish on the good side for Bracken as they prepare for seeding in the Playoffs.
