All too often, big games don't live up to the hype. Not so in this case, this was Texas high school football at its best. Two great teams throwing hay-makers all night long! Allen mostly through the air, Marcus mostly on the ground.
Both very effective at what they do. Both teams giving second and third effort all night long. Can anyone in the state guard Andrew Rodriguez? He doesn't look like anything special but all he does is get open and make plays.
Allen's run defense has to be troubling to the coaching staff. Marcus had three players go over 100 yards on the ground. With all the big plays, it was interesting that the story of the game came down to a measurement for both teams.
Marcus went for it late in the game on 4th and 1 and came up just short. Allen went for it on 4th and 1 with under a minute left and just made it. The last drive was the thing legends are made of, Alec Morris showed he can handle the pressure.
Very impressed with both teams, this game will serve each of them well in preparation for the playoffs.
Here's some pics from the game, hats off to both these teams and their fans
