THE VYPE "WEEKEND REWIND"
BY AUSTIN STATON AND MATT MALATESTA
44 Unanswered Points: During the first quarter against Seven Lakes on Friday night, the Katy Tigers found themselves in unfamiliar territory as they trailed by two points against their district foe. In addition to trailing for the first time this season, it marked the first time that Katy had trailed against Seven Lakes in the history of the series. After two early turnovers, Katy found their groove and rolled to the tune of 44-straight points to improve to 4-0 on the season while picking up their first win in district play.
Bynum Goes Off Again: Elsik’s Jerry Bynum single-handedly beat Ike top open district play with 265 yards and five scores. Ummm are you listening college recruiters? He is averaging over 10 yards per carry and has nearly 1,000 in four games.
Thursday Night Lights: Klein Forest QB and Texas A&M commit Matt Davis didn’t put up gaudy numbers in the first half against cross-town rival Klein HS in a nationally-televised game on Thursday night. However, legends are made in the second half. Trailing 21-20 with 2:24 left in the game, Davis engineered what proved to be a go-ahead scoring drive capped with a 60-yard touchdown run to give Klein Forest the come-from-behind victory. Davis finished the night with two touchdown passes on 218 yards through the air and 200 yards on the ground including the game-winning scramble late in the fourth quarter.
The Year of the Falcon? Channelview quarterback Averion Hurts continues to blow up on his father’s offense. Hurts threw for another 5 touchdowns and over 450 yards against Dobie to take the Falcons to a 4-1 record. He leads the area in passing with 1,800 yards in five games.
We See You Working: Houston is loaded with star players every weekend, but it’s tough to recognize everyone. A few difference makers include Brenham’s Malcolm Brown and Tremund Moore, who lit Magnolia West’s secondary. Brown is the state’s top DT at 6-foot-4, 280-pounds. Klein Oak’s Connor McQueen went off against Klein Collins with 289 yards and a touchdown directing the Oak offense. Dekaney’s Trey Williams ran circles around Spring for 267 yards and three scores, while Langham’s Connor Feist threw for 235 yards and four TDs in a comeback win against Cy Springs. Oak Ridge’s Michael Handy threw for 237 yards and TD and ran for 81 yards and a score. A pair of Texas Tech-commits had successful weekends. Clear Springs’ Marcus Johnson showed out in a win against Pearland and Westfield Anthony Smith played well in a loss to Tomball. Westside’s B.J. Catalon is showing why the Horned Frogs love his style, going for 208 yards and 3 TDs in a 56-29 win.
College Boys: On the largest stage in college football, a trio of Houston kids fared well on the ABC Game of the Week between West Virginia and LSU. It ended up being a lopsided affair, but WVA’s Dustin Garrison of Pearland fame was the Mountaineers leading rusher and had a score from 2-yards out. LSU is anchored by Chavez big-man Michael Brockers at defensive tackle. Brockers is turning into a bona fide NFL prospect. Coming of suspension, Cy Ridge’s Russell Shepard had a few touches in the big win.
