Historic seasons collide as Prosper tangles with Lancaster

The Eagles offense repeatedly took advantage of the opportunities gifted by their defense, scoring 27 of their 50 points off Cowboy turnovers. Texas Tech quarterback commit Davis Webb snapped a two-game streak with no touchdown passes with three in the area round win, with two to Notre Dame WR commit Torii Hunter Jr. The scores snapped a similar two-game streak for Hunter with no touchdown catches. Junior running back/linebacker Marquez Houston recorded his 10th rushing touchdown of the year along with an interception returned for a score on defense.
On defense, five different players recorded interceptions with Connor Thompson and Grayson Lamb logging their first of the year. The win gave the Eagles their first 10-win season since 2009.
The Tigers have their normal stable of amazing talent, but under Coach Gilbert the school has clearly turned the corner to become an elite North Texas program. The Tigers feature numerous Division 1 recruits, led by do-everything athlete Demarcus Ayers and defensive end Daeshon Hall. Both are bound for the Pacific Northwest, with Ayers heading to Washington State and Hall to Washington. Junior CB/WR Nick Harvey, one of the state’s top 2014 recruits, gave his commitment to play for Texas A&M just this Monday.
The Tigers have dominated their first two postseason opponents, defeating Jacksonville in round one 34-2 followed by a 41-16 area round dismantling of previously unbeaten 4A newcomer Lovejoy in which the Tiger defense forced a season-high eight turnovers. With a victory over Prosper, Lancaster would advance to the fourth round of the playoffs for the first time in school history.
