quietly emerging Speed and experience the keys to Cougar D By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor When the offense is churning out 30 points per game and boasting a quarterbackreceiver duo that ranks among the state leaders statisti cally its easy see how a districtleading defense can get overlooked As quarterback Reagan George and Ricky Boehle continue to set the schools record books on fire and grab the media spotlight the Cougar defense quietly continues to shut down oppo nents and guard the endzone like hawks And thats just the way middle linebacker Mike Broaddus likes it because as he sees it the teams offensive success is an indirect result of its defensive prowess The guys on our defense have the attitude that were out there to get our offense the ball and set them up with good field said Broaddus the team leader in tackles with 129 Thats whatweretrying to do Keep the other team out of the endzone and give our offense the The limelight doesnt always shine on the guys who make the tackles and break up pass es but make no mistake Canyons defense is making opponents take notice In the last five games the Cougars have allowed only five points per game on average and are causing turnovers at nearly a 2tol ratio For the season Canyon has 19 interceptions and 11 fumble recoveries fora plus18 turnover edge Opponents have moved the ball sparing ly 234 yards per game and few can boast much success crossing the goal line A quick glance at the district scores tells the tale Canon 16 Smithson Valley 9 Canyon 39 New Braunfels 6 Canyon 21 Hays 6 Canyon 45 Lockhart 0 Breaking it down further the statistics show that opponents have converted only 38 percent on third down and have completed only 37 per cent of their passes With a bendbutdontbreak persistence the Cougar defense thrives on making the big Canyons Malcom KiUen 40 and Brian Whitener provide defensive depth for the CougH ZeitUn9 by MCHAEL DARNALL plays at critical times id the red zone Take for example trie game against Austin Reagan when the Raiders moved inside the 10 and threatened to take the lead shortly before halftime Safety Hector Torres picked off a pass in the endzone and returned it 50 yards to turn away the threat and preserve an 87 lead Four weeks later ag nst Lockhart the Lions were knocking on the daor at the 4yard line in a 140 game Three pla s garnered negative 11 yards after linebacker Justin Dunlap the second leading tackier with 93 tuffed a run and record ed a sack The same scenarios and Bastrop when it ca goal line Canyon coach Larr Bass fishing in Falcon Lake excellent as waters keep risirig Keith Warren Whats the best bass lake in Texas Some anglers would say Lake Fork because of the huge bass in it Others may say Lake Sam Raybum located in East Texas Both these lakes have good fishing but cant come close to Falcon Lake when it comes to big stringers and lots of them Located on the Rio Grande River south of Laredo this lake is now approximately 35 feet below conser vation pool and rising slowly The new growth being swallowed up by the rising waters is loaded with big bass A bass club from Houston just returned from a twoday tournament where it took 56 pounds of bass to win a twoday event It also took ten bass weighing 48 pounds to be in the Top 10 The fish are jammed up in the shal low coves located on the lakes north shore These areas are not as beaten by Subvarsity football report From submitted reports layed out against Hays ie crunch time near the Nowotny has said all along that the defense is the teams strength this season and hes banking that it will be the case again this Friday when the Cougars host Clemens in the first round of the state playoffs This is the quickest and most experienced defensive unit weve had in a long Nowotny said They arent the biggest kids as far as size goes but they make things happen and they get tough when people get near the goal So who are these players who quietly stifle enemy offenses Up front they are tackle John Flores 68 tackle Jesse Mesa end Eric Holt and end Kevin Self The linebackers the heart and soul of the defense bolstered by Broaddus Dunlap and Kirk Haney And the secondary perhaps the deepest and most tal ented group features Torres 6 Brett Parrish Domingo Medina and Aaron Snider A supporting cast in Malcom Kitchen Brian Whitner and Boehle keep the Cougars fresh late in the game Defensive coordinator Tom Kosser is strategist behind the Cougars 4 3 alignment Few will debate the Cougars offensive pow er but rival coaches such as New Braunfels Tim Kingsbury will attest to the skill other side of ball They have an exceptional Kings bury said The line is quick and strong Theyve got talented linebackers centered around Broad dus and their secondary is real experienced and solid Their defense compliments their offense and thats important in the Keeping an eye on Tfoscas north winter winds therefore the water clarity remains good more often Falcon is a lake that consislently requires five bass for 25 pounds to even be in the running in a tourna ment Many times 35 pounds is needed for a one day event Now thats strong Falcon Lake should be excdlent this coming spring as long as the lake continues to rise If you havent fished Falcon nows the time to do so The fish will bite so well that youll think youve become a pro But before you quit your job aid go on
