South Oak Cliff
Safety Kevin Brent
Brent started out the game slow. He lethargically stood around and watched plays that went away from him. He took long to read and diagnosis plays and for the better part of the first half he was unproductive; all traits that are atypical of Brent's style of play.
The second half was an entirely different story. Trailing 20-0 to start the third quarter, Brent decided enough was enough. He rallied the troops on the sidelines moments before the second half kick off. He gave his rendition of Knute Rockne, which ingnited a flame that led to 20 unanswered points. Brent contributed most those points scoring on a fumble return and a interception return. Brent looked every bit of his 4 star ranking in the second half. He is head hunter with great ball skills. He is a difference maker.
Sidenote: Brent left the game after his second TD. He was sidelined for awhile before leaving in an ambulance.
CB Kenneth Pinkard- Washington Commit
Pinkard is the vocal leader of the team but he also leads by example. He flies round the field with his hair on fire. He has a confidence about myself that show in his play. He has a non-stop mouth but backs it up. He played both corner and safety. At safety, he closed the running lanes quickly and made tackles but he needs to work on bringing his hips and running through the ball carrier. When we was at corner, he did not have the chance to show off his ability as OD Wyatt primarily ran the ball.
Sidenote: Pinkard left the game midway through the second quarter after taking a helmet to the knee. No word has been giving on the severity of his injury.
Sophomore WR Larry Jones
Larry Jones is a name you are going to want to fimilarize yourself with. At only a sophomore, Jones has game changing potential. He is cat quick and can take a 5 yard out route and turn it into a 76 yard touchdown. Defenders must attack under control when trying to tackle Jones. If you slow up he will run by you, if you fly up with out breaking down while still moving forward, he will make you miss. He is light in the pants but a couple years of growth and maturity will make him one to watch.
RB Marcus Turner
Turner is a combo back. He has speed and power. He would rather run through you than around you as he is not shifty. He also has the speed to turn the corner and get up field. He is focused. He doesn't say much on the field or on the sideline, he just puts his helmet on a goes to work. He is physically mature and his body can take the punishment of 20 touches a game. He is flying below the radar but says Texas A&M has recently started calling him. He is an intriguing prospect that can flourish in a better environment and with proper coaching.
