WHHS vs. Castleberry

Posted by Coach Moilan on 9/26/2020

You missed a great game Friday night! And, Man, what a game it was!  We jumped out to an early 22-6 lead, but Castleberry eventually tied it up and took the lead.  With 1:39 left in the fourth, we turned the ball over on downs and things did not look good.  On the castleberry first down play, senior LB Deion Williams stripped the ball away from the castleberry running back and gave us new life.   Two great runs by sophomore QB Keyon Butler, a huge catch and run on a quick hitch to Senior WR Trey Brewster set us up at the about the 20 yard line.   Senior WR Ashon Cooper then caught a quick out, split two defenders and weaved his way into the endzone with 17 seconds left in the game and a one point lead.   The Castleberry kickoff returner had a nice return and was tackled by Senior Jude Collins.  The defensive line got a huge rush on the last play of the game and the game ended with a sack of the QB. Final score WHHS - 35 CHS - 34.

I could not be more proud of the kids and coaches.  They fought through some adversity and won a tough district game to go 2-0 in districts. 

Junior LB Caleb Clark had a huge game on defense finishing with 17 tackles. The defense stepped up when they needed to and got some key stops. 

Our offensive line continues to get better each week.   Center RJ Moilan, Guards Jacorie Williams and Angel Ortiz, tackles Kishaun Brookins and Noah Sanchez, and TE Michael Young did a great job of leading us to over 250 yards rushing.   Nick Johnson and Janaii Thompson came into the game in our "jumbo" set and gave us a big group of guys to run behind. 

Junior Running back Jason Green was a workhorse!   He had 30 carries for 152 yards and 4 TD's
