Warriors Advance in Football Playoffs

November 18, 2017

Records just keep falling and the Warriors now own the longest winning streak in school history at 10 games. It was the third straight week where CCS put 50 points on the board in the first half. Coach Spenn said, "Each game has been a total team effort. The defense has come up with stops, special teams have been outstanding and the offense has not missed an opportunity to score. We have played teams with really good looking kids when they get off the bus but the sport of football is the ultimate team game. We are a team built on the idea that you love your teammate by doing your job. You always pick your teammate up and work hard to never let them down and that has really started to show on the field."

The defense meet the Guardians at the line of scrimmage on every run play and chased the quarterback around the pocket on the pass plays. Holding them to just 154 yards on the night. Every time the offense touched the ball they scored. Eight different Warriors were credited with scoring points on Friday night. Christian Andrus's efforts in practice earned the junior varsity running back a first half carry and he made the most of it goings 54 yards for the score. 

The football program has broken so many records it is pretty hard to keep track. Josh Holl is now the all time leader in career TD passes. He set the single season records for TDs, yards, completion percentage and completions. Austin Henry has nearly doubled the sack record with 13 and also broke the total tackles for loss record with 26 and counting on the season. He is quickly closing in on the career record for sacks. Joseph Carbone has set the record for receiving yards in a season with 1,083 and already broke the career record. He is just 13 catches away from the single season receptions record of 65 held by Frank Aufmuth. Christian Flieschhauer has broken the scoring record set by Brett Buckley and is getting very close to the interception record. 

The Warriors will travel to Navasota for a neutral site game against Brentwood Christian on Friday at 1 p.m. Brentwood came from behind late in the game to defeat TSD is the first round. They are 9-2 on the season behind a strong rushing attack. A victory on Friday would make the Warriors regional champions for only the second time in school history. The 2011 squad advanced to the semi finals behind all time leading rusher Jason Groll but fell to eventual State Champion Brookhill in a great football game.
