Interesting Facts:
**Of the 6 games that Canyon Lake has failed to score, half of those games came against teams that were a predominantly rushing offense, Navarro, Liberty Hill, and Blanco. Showing how a team that can run has a better understanding of the Slot-T offense.

**Canyon Lake’s 7 Defensive Shut-Outs have occurred since the 2016 season.

**Last season, Canyon Lake had 3 wins where the offense had their least amount of points scored that is ranked in the top-10 in games played. Two of those contests (Marble Falls 7pts and Blanco 10pts) rank 1st and 2nd.
