Lions Dominate Franklin: Teague Varsity Moves to Second Round of Playoffs

 Teague Lions advance to playoffs…              Teague’s quarterback, Antonio Heard (#3), rushed for 3 TD’s and passed for 2 to his brother, Tyrese Heard (#13), in the Lion’s rout of the Franklin Lions.  The Teague Lions got three touchdowns each from Antonio and Tyrese Heard and dominated the Franklin Lions at Midway High School Friday night to advance to the second round of the Texas High School football playoffs. Teague got the early lead and never looked back in the win.  The defense was able to neutralize the big running backs of the Franklin offense.  The timely running and passing of Antonio Heard provided the spark for the Lions to get the win. The Franklin Lions were pinned back deep in their own territory all night.  They took the opening kickoff and had to start at their own nine-yard line.  Teague struck first off of the Franklin special teams when he received a punt at his own 22 and raced for the 78-yard touchdown on the punt return.  Ismael Diaz kick the first of his six extra points on the night for the early 7-0 lead, a lead they would keep the entire game. Franklin did manage a score before the first quarter would end.  Sophomore running back Jared Padraza scored on a five-yard run but the point after was no good and Teague...

Teague Lions Head to the Playoffs

Making a run for the touchdown is #1 Tayvis Coleman during the Lion’s rout of Westwood.              The Teague Lions built a 26-7 halftime lead and then let the reserves take the rest of the game in a 40-14 over an overmatched Palestine Westwood Panther team. The Lions could not better their playoff standing so the win was a workmanlike effort.  The Teague offense kept things basic and were able to get a lead and allow the other players to finish the game and five players did not even suit up for the contest to get ready for the playoffs. Teague took the opening kickoff and worked their way downfield for an easy two-yard run by Tayvis Coleman with 9:07 remaining in the first quarter.  After a short punt, Coleman took the handoff and raced 55 yards for the second touchdown but a penalty was called and the points came off the scoreboard.  On the next play from scrimmage, quarterback Antonio Heard passed downfield to Anthony Weathers for a 51-yard score.  The one play drive gave the Lions a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter. Westwood got their offense going some and marched inside the Lion 25-yard line.  On fourth and nine from the Lion 21, B.J. McQuirter knocked the ball away on a pass to the endzone.  The Panthers were trying for...
