score anywhere in the red zone Canyons Jonas New Braunfels Rust could be the difference Friday Wally Gullick Correspondent Long recognized as the 100yard Friday nightsshowdown for first place between New Braunfels and Canyon could be shortened by 20 yards or more on the strength of two superior field goal kickers With Trint Rust of New Braunfels and Canyons Bryan Jonas standing on the sidelines going the distance isnt necessary to pick up points Either team can light up the score board with at least a if their offensive units run out of gas outside the red zone Rust and Jonas are a pair of side winding Dickers who have demonstrated consistent longrange accuracy that puts fur ther pressure on the defense Trint approaches each kick with great Unicorns special teams coordinator Todd Behling said I remember against Del Valle they were trying to ice him by calling a timeout I told him we could go out and run another play but he wanted to go in and Confidence is an illustration of the mental intangibles that separate the good kickers from those who are giv en the job by default Mentally I just try to imagine Im out at Rust said Regard less of the situation and no matter how the crowd is reacting I just try to block it all Rusts approach has netted sixfield goals in eight tries with a 38yard boot in the opener against San Anto nio Highlands his longest Jonas who at 60 173pounds dwarfs the Rust has what he calls a comfort zone from as far away as 50 yards and once made good on a 63yarder in practice I approach every kick with a clear my focus from wher ever I am on the field is the top of the said Jonas His strong leg has attracted the attention of scouts from Texas and Oklahoma State Jonas has field goals from 30 and 31 yards this year but that doesnt reflect his ability to kick It instead shows that the sturdy rushing attack of the Cougars has wound up in the end zone more often than theyve been stopped But when theyre left outside looking in theres Jonas Bryan is just a real strong com Cougars special teams coach Donnie Slater said Its tough to ask someone to stand on the side line for the whole game and then at a critical time ask him to go in and kick a gamewining field goal but thats the dimension he gives Jonas was playing soccer for Slater as a freshman when Canyon head coach Brad Wright toured the soccer fields in search of a kicker I thought here was my chance to play Jonas said Now Im hoping to get a scholarship and maybe even get to the Rust was also a soccer prodigy as a freshman at New Braunfels and was encouraged by his father to go out for football Trint has done everything weve asked of him He spent endless time this summer and works out with his holder and snapper after Behling said Rust and Jonas will both tell you diat despite the attention drawn to the kicker trying that gamewining field goal its a threestep task to make it work The snap the hold and then the kick It all has to be perfect and Ive been fortunate to have my team mates really perform for Rust said Unlike Rust who is competing on See KICKERS Page 6A Cougars must be able to throw the ball to beat Unicorns T A Thile few teams can assem
