Blogging live from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, it is now halftime at the UIL 5-A Division 2 Football Championships between Cedar Hill High School "Eagles"and Cypress Falls High School Longhorns.
In a match that I feel should have been much closer that it is, Cedar Hill had totally dominated the Eagles. Jumping out to a 31-10 lead at halftime, the Eagles seem to be playing at a much higher level that their opponents.
Quarterback William Cole, who is totally dominating the game, has rushed for 210 yards on 12 plays and scored two touchdowns. In addition, Cole is also 6 for 10, with one interception, for 67 yards and one touchdown.
The Longhorns have 248 yard rushing and 67 yards passing for a total of 315 yards. Compare that to Cypress Falls, who only have 198 total yards, with 150 yards passing and 48 yards rushing.
Cy-Falls had possession o for 13:36 but couldn't seem to do anything with it. The offense is sluggish and when they do advance the ball, they quickly loose focus or turn the ball over.
Quarterback Jeff Welsh is 14-8 for 150 yards and one interception, but that was not enough to counteract the highly effective Longhorn offense.
Cole has simply taken control of the game and is dictating his terms to the Longhorns. Whatever college or univeristy gets this young man is in store for a multitude of victories.
If Cy-Falls cannot find a way to stop him, it is going to be a long, hard drive back to Houston.
