The Cougars know the Raiders are one of the hottest high school football programs in the state having won 80 of their last 85 games. 5A Division one Region II is a beast according to College Station Head Football Coach Steve Huff.
“I think it looks like an FBS region but we knew that coming into it,” said Huff. “I think everybody that’s in that region and out of our district we talked about it last year that you were going to face somebody really really good early it doesn’t make any difference. Sherman last week coming out of that district was a very very tough opponent and we knew that and turn around this week and play Denton Ryan,” added Huff.
This year’s team has faced a much harder schedule, including beating two Class 6A teams in Arlington Martin and Guyer to start the year. Ryan currently features the No. 2 offense in the area with an average of 514.5 yards per game.
Memphis signee Seth Henigan has thrown for 2,502 yards and 32 touchdowns to just four interceptions. He has a ton of weapons, including Texas signee Ja’Tavion Sanders (658 receiving yards, 11 TDs) and Oklahoma signee Billy Bowman (773 receiving yards, 10 TDs). Even with those two stars, Ryan has five receivers with at least 264 receiving yards.
Running back Ke’Ori Hicks (Texas A&M Commerce) leads the team with 750 rushing yards and seven touchdowns.
Defensively, Ryan is giving up an average of 15.1 points and is No. 3 in the area in yards allowed with 181.6. Sanders and Bowman lead the charge on that side of the ball along with the likes of Arkansas, Ty Marsh, Austin Jordan and Keithian “Bear” Alexander. Opponents are only averaging 86.6 rushing yards a game.
“This will be a great challenge for us,” coach Henigan said. “The region is clearly deep; there are a lot of really good teams. We aren’t going to overlook any of them. When you look too far ahead, you get knocked down.”
