TexasFootball.com is proud to partner with the U.S. Army for the Army Strong Team of the Week throughout the Texas high school football season, as well as the Team of the Year award at the end of the season.
Each week, TexasFootball.com and the U.S. Army join together to select one team from every classification in high school football that demonstrated the qualities exhibited within the Army - those include leadership, commitment to excellence and a desire to make a difference as a member of a team. Each is awarded the Army Strong Team of the Week by local officials from the U.S. Army at a school assembly or pep rally.
ARMY STRONG TEAM OF THE WEEK -- WEEK FOUR
The Hawks' defense was in its usual fine form and RB Treyvon Hughes ran for two touchdowns as Hebron won its 100th game in program history with a 28-7 victory over previously unbeaten Plano.
Down six with just 11 seconds left, Tigers QB Rene Presas found Joshua Garza for a 19-yard touchdown strike -- Presas' fourth TD pass -- to give Mercedes a stunning 36-35 win over previously unbeaten Mission Veterans Memorial in the District 32-4A opener.
In perhaps the most impressive win for a 3A squad yet this year, RB Larry Rose ran for 219 yards and two scores while the Eagles' defense, led by Alex Ward's two defensive TDs, stifled Navasota for a 44-24 win, snapping the Rattlers' 20-game winning streak.
Boyd needed an onside kick, two blocked extra points and a key interception to seal the win, but the Yellowjackets pulled out a wild 42-34 victory over Bowie in triple overtime to move to 3-2 on the season.
The Eagles' running game was dominant, rushing for 371 yards, but it was T.R. Jones' 27-yard game-winning touchdown pass to Eric Chavez with 19 seconds remaining to help Goldthwaite stun state-ranked Mart, 39-33, and earn its first victory of the season.
6M: Mount Calm
The long and often difficult history of Mount Calm -- the program was suspended from 1958-2010, and rejoined the UIL in 2012 -- took its most joyous turn yet, upsetting heavy favorite Avalon, 62-56.
