Posted by on 28 October 2013 | 0 comments
This October, DCTF is partnering with the US Air Force to honor the top passing offenses in the state with the US Aerial Attack of the Week award. Based on the nominations received at www.texasfootball.com/airforce, below are this week’s three finalists:
Aside from Coach Phil Danaher’s ever-increasing career victory total, it has been the defense that has garnered most of the headlines for the undefeated Calallen Wildcats this fall. Through their first six games, they recorded three shut outs and had surrendered a grand total of just 42 points. So when Victoria West put up 38 this past Friday, it was up to senior quarterback Derek Scheible and the Wildcat offense to carry the flag. They met the challenge, as Scheible connected on 79% of his pass attempts to tally 304 yards through the air to go along with four passing touchdowns- two each to senior Dallas Winterrowd and junior Chase Whetsel. The 56-38 win pushes the Wildcats to 7-0 on the season and into DCTF’s 4A Top Ten.

In a scene reminiscent of Doug Williams and the Redskins’ historic surge in Super Bowl XXII, Patrick Mahomes and the dynamic Whitehouse offense exploded for 30 points in the second quarter against Nacogdoches in a battle of teams previously unbeaten in the District 16-4A standings. Their 36-14 lead at the break held up in the 43-21 victory that moved the #5 Wildcats to 8-0 on the season. Mahomes threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns, and fellow senior Jake Parker hauled in five passes for 126 yards.

Ranked #1 in DCTF’s 4A poll, Aledo continued their march through District 7-4A with a 59-13 victory over Fort Worth Southwest on Friday. Junior quarterback Luke Bishop had an efficient and productive night, completing 75% of his pass attempts for 313 yards and four touchdowns. Five Bearcat receivers notched receptions, led by senior Taco Anderson- who had five catches including two touchdowns.
