Flour Bluff was named one of five dark horses to win the title this year, due in part to the return of 13 starters from last year’s Regional Finalist team. This year they have lost 11 players with significant playing time to injury or transfer (including their top two running backs). Calhoun was on the other end of the spectrum for returning starters. They brought a defense to the field this year that had only 2 starters returning from last year. Both teams have one loss that came to Corpus Christi Calallen
This game came down to ball control. Without official time stats to go by, one could imagine the imbalance just from the number of plays run. Calhoun ran 71 plays (only 5 clock stopping incomplete passes) to Flour Bluff’s 46 plays (15 incomplete passes). Calhoun runs an option based offense, but QB Hunter Boerm rarely let the ball go out of his hands (34 carries) and he didn’t need to.
- Write down the name Cody Brewer. The sophomore QB from Flour Bluff wasn’t listed in Dave Campbell’s magazine or on Rivals, but he may be the best sophomore QB we’ve ever seen. Granted we have only seen him play one game, but he led a team to a 10-2 record with a freshamn runninb back starting the majority of the season. He’s 6’5″, elusive in the pocket, big arm, and made smart decisions with the ball.
- Nail-biting finishes . . . Flour Bluff got the ball back with under a minute, no timeouts and 76 yards to go for a win. They moved the ball to midfield before the clock ran out on them.
