Air Force Aerial Attack of the Week
This October, DCTF is partnering with the US Air Force to honor the top passing offenses in the state with the US Air Force Aerial Attack of the Week award. Based on the nominations received at www.texasfootball.com/airforce, below are this week’s three finalists:
Playing a team from a larger classification isn’t an issue for 2A Canadian, as this perennial Panhandle powerhouse is generally prepared to produce prolific numbers no matter who is lined up on the other side of the ball. In the Wildcats’ 49-26 win over the 3A Pampa Harvesters, senior quarterback Ben Arbuckle threw for 317 yards and 3 touchdowns while completing a Manning-esque 79% of his 24 pass attempts.

San Angelo Central Bobcats
While the Bobcats have put up huge numbers all season, the stat they love the most is the zero in the loss column that has them atop the Little Southwest Conference standings. In their 63-21 victory over Midland High last Friday, senior quarterback Mickey Scott completed 18 of 20 passing attempts for 249 yards and 4 touchdowns. After halftime, junior Braden Hucks took over and added 136 yards and a touchdown. All together, Scott and Hucks completed 31 of 38 pass attempts to eight different receivers for 385 yards and 5 touchdowns.

Wichita Falls Rider
Rider remained perfect in 5-4A play with a 68-14 Thursday night victory over the Bears from Brewer. Senior quarterback Chase London powered the ROHO attack with 321 yards and 5 touchdowns through the air. The six different Raider receivers that hauled in passes were led by Davon Allison, who totalled 203 yards on five catches- including two touchdowns of 53 and 95 yards.
