College Station’s offense is averaging 478.8 yards per game behind a solid line that gives quarterback Jett Huff plenty of time to find receivers and allows running back Marquise Collins to run often without being hit. In last week’s victory, Collins broke three school records in one game with six touchdowns and 308 yards, while Huff threw for 104 additional yards and one touchdown.
Steve Huff said the Cougars will need to be consistent and patient on offense to move forward.
“We told them last week that not all parts will be [big]”Said Steve Huff.” If you’re doing 5 yards on a play that’s a good play. So don’t look down on things just because they don’t go in big chunks like maybe they’ve done it sometimes during the year. You’re still in a very good position.
College Station will also face another talented running back, Jared White, on Friday. White ran for 111 yards and two touchdowns in Wakeland’s win over Highland Park, and he threw the late touchdown pass to Tripp Riordan before running in the two-point conversion for the tie-breaker.
The Cougars have been good against the run this season, allowing just 81.9 rushing yards per game despite strong runners like Hunter Bilbo of Magnolia West and Ashton Jeanty of Lone Star over the past two weeks.
Steve Huff also said it would be important for College Station to “keep the game small” and not be afraid to kick and use field position to their advantage. The Cougars have proven they can do it. Kicker and kicker Dawson Schremp is averaging 41.9 yards per punt, and he triggered a 76-yard punt last week to put Lone Star on his own 8-yard line early in the first quarter.
