Thursday Preview: LBJ v. McCallum (Week 8)

McCallum KnightsMcCallum Knights (3-0) vs. Del Valle CardinalsLBJ Jaguars (3-0)



McCallum KnightsMcCallum Notes: Its been a roller coaster season for McCallum, but they're currently in an upswing. Outside of a mid-season non-dsitrict tender vs. Navasota, the Knights have won their last three.  QB Griffin Stuesser is showing senior leadership by leading the team in total TDs (9).  The emergence of RB AJ Herrera has ignited the Knights fan base.  Since inserted in the starting line up, Herrera has run for nearly 500 yards in 3 contest.  His 3 TD game v. Travis last week shows that he can dominate a game.  The addition of super sophomore Sabian Cannon back to the mix makes this a deadly McCallum squad.  WR Willie Mays ('14) has 340 yards and 2 receiving TDs...good numbers, but he's capable of much more.  Junior WR Jordan Gray will be celebrating a belated birthady.  The team has softened the loss of senior Ed Armstrong with line play from Rashad Jarmon and Courtney Organ.  The return of Wil Smith is just another improvement the team has made since Week Zero.

LBJ Notes: The Jaguars have certainly been playing better lately, but they'll tell you the 'swag' isn't all the way back.  A win against McCallum on Thursday would transform them back into the Swaguars.  ATH Randon Knotts ('13) has double digit TDs, and will certainly add on to his total headed into postsesaon.  WR Sebastian Canizares ('13) has been the team's most consistent receiving threat (285 yards, 2 TDs) while RB Demarcus Bryant (340 yards, 4 TDs) has helped Knotts steady the run game.  DB Jeffery Willams ('13) doesn't have flashy numbers, but its because offenses are scared to throw his way.  Its not on the stat sheet, but he's done his job.  Not to be forgotten is ATH Aiden Kahn.  A versitile talent, he's chipped in at QB (3 TDs) and WR (1 TD).  LBs Gary Lovings ('14) and Jaylon Rose ('14) offer good run support, while the offensive line (featuring Denzel Locue/Bernard Tucker) can play like the district's best.

OVERVIEW:

Both teams want this game bad.  Last year, LBJ celebrated a 26-22 win over the Knights.  You can relive the Jaguars glee, here.
 

Different year, different battle.  Both teams are peaking, and the talk is loud on Twitter.  We'll be on hand Thursday night for the action - you'll see postgame interviews and game action on our Facebook page late Thursday/early Friday.
