Defensive line stands out despite loss to Mustangs

In the Sept. 11 game against Madisonville, our Lions held the Mustangs back in the first quarter,  only giving up a touchdown with 3 seconds left in the 2nd quarter on a 3rd down and long. Coach Donnie Osborn feels a stop at that time could have changed the momentum of the game. “We were not productive in the passing game, which makes it more difficult to run the football,” the coach says.

The defensive line did, however, have  a good game. Casen Gore got 10 tackles, 5 for loss. Luke Stacks got 9 tackles, 1 for loss. The game MVP goes to junior O-line and defensive end Sabastian Carter who managed to get  8 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and 1 hurry.

Nemier “Bubba” Herod scored a 65-yard touchdown in the 2nd quarter, and Uriel Medina got the extra point kick. Coach Osborn states in order to do better against Buffalo, linemen Conner Buck, Nate Evans, Hayden Lummus, Sebastian Carter, Josh Perez, and Armando Velasquez “have to have a great night on the offensive line for us to be successful.”
