Thursday Preview: Austin v. Anderson

Austin High MaroonsAustin Maroons (1-2) v. Anderson TrojansAnderson Trojans (0-3)

Austin High MaroonsAustin High Notes: Austin High's offense notched its second 40+ point scoring effort in four games (v. Akins).  Their 47 points last week was their highest output vs. a district foe.  The defense performed well, allowing a season low 14 points.  Senior ATH Zay Jones (pictured) has totaled 500 yards and 6 TDs.  St. Mike's transfer Quin Goode ('14) leads team in rushing TDs with 6, while junior RB Quincy Reese has 4 scores.  Sophomore QB John Albert Mansour has thrown for over 700 yards and 9 TDs.  Senior FB/TE Charles Schneider has 24 grabs for for 240 yards and 2 TDs.  The Maroons key issue has been consistency.  If they can play defense like they did vs. Lake Travis (14 points allowed) and offense like last week, they will surprise fans down the road.  A win over Anderson inches Coach Rosenthal to a postseason berth in his debut season.

Anderson TrojansAnderson Notes: This season has been a frustrating one for a talented group of hard workers.  Despite the dismal start, the Trojans still have a glimmer of postseason hope.  RB Deryl Bunton has been the MVP, totaling 500 yards and 3 TDs.  QB Easton Johnson has kept turnover to a minimum (2 interceptions) while providing the teams only passing TD (27 yarder to Chris Collins).  Junior WR Blake Allen has been their #1 receiving threat with 23 grabs.  Sophomores Chris Ortiz and Braden Buckman have provided a glimpse of a brighter future.  Linemen Raj Rajab and Jacob Valadez are receiving solid playing time that will serve them well in 2013.  But before Anderson starts looking into the future, they can prolong the '12 season with a win over Austin High on Thursday.
