QB Taylor Millington will take over full-time duties under center after passing for 500 yards and 5 TDS in his four starts last season. LB Justin Witte, who made 60 tackles in just five games during 2004, is expected to anchor the Badgers defense.RANGERS CONTINUED FROM Page 5ASV coach wants team sharp, focused Blake Schrock, Chris Brehm, Cody McKinney and Trent Rios. Hill said he would like to see the Rangers come out on top of their game. “I d like to be sharp. We need to set a good tone and set the pace, while doing the other things you need to win, such as winning the turnover battle and playing well on special teams,” he said. “I don’t think theres ever a reason to come out sloppy, you like to be crisp.” I fill knows little about Westwood, which featured players in blank jerseys during its scrimmage against Brenham last week. That means the Rangers will have to learn about the Warriors as the game progresses. “I d like to see our team develop its own mindset and adapt on the run," he said. “With the number of people STOCKDALE AT MARION 7:30 p.m. Veterans Field Tickets: $6 Last year: Stockdale, 26-15 ABOUT THE BRAHMAS District: 28-2A Coach: Andrew King (7-4 in second season at school and overall) 2004 record: 7-4 (3-1, tied first in 28-2A) Returning starters: 5 offensive, 7 defensive Outlook: Returning starting QB Spencer Lambeck passed for 548 yards and five touchdowns in 2004. Lambeck is also a threat to run the ball, as he also piled up 427 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground. Leading the defense are returning starting CB Jon Acuna (four interceptions) and LB Tyler Wiatrek, who made 94 tackles in 2004. we have returning, I think they’re mature enough and poised enough to make adjustments on the run and not get flustered. Hopefully the experienced kids will help the younger ones to do that.” Wood says the Rangers have a big advantage in experience. “As a team they’ve played 47 games in the last three seasons and we’ve played only 30, so theres a two-year difference in games played,” he said. “The Rangers are very experienced, very well coached and fundamentally very sound. They have a bend-but-don’t-break-defense that doesn’t give you many chances. They are solid, and will beat you with execution.” Though it’s the season opener, Hill expects the Rangers to have a good outing after a good week of practice with no injuries. "Basically it ll be teen-aged kids playing football against each another," he said. “With a bunch of over-aged kids coaching them on the sidelines.” Weak-hitting Rangers lose matinee ARLINGTON (AP) — Jeff Harris limited Texas to just four singles and an unearned mn in his second career start and Ichiro Suzuki hit his third career grand slam, leading the Seattle Mariners over the Rangers 8-2 Thursday. Harris (1-1), a 31-year-oldCOUGARS CONTINUED FROM Page 5AGame might mirror last year s contest said. “We played pretty well in that game, but it was close. Last year it could have gone either way, and I expect that it will once again be a good test for us.” Despite the lack of returning starters for both teams many of the aspects from last year’s game can be expected to be repeated this year. Davis said Canyon hopes to use its ground game, featuring running back Chase Wilke, to control the clock and keep La Vernia’s offense off the field. “They have a really good quarterback who .should do a fantastic job for them this year,” Davis said. “They hit us up for some big plays through the air in last year’s game. I expect they are going to test our defensive backs again.” The defensive secondary is one area of concern for Canyon. The Cougars will be without starting cornerback Erie Skolaut tonight. Skolaut will sit out the game because of an jetskiing injury. However, third-year starter Jerris Springfield will be at strong safety and Cameron I lenk will play free safety. Starting at the corners will be Koby Polk and Joel Hernandez, both newcomers. “We hope to just let our rookie recalled fromTTiple-A Tacoma to make the start, went seven innings and threw 94 pitches on a day when the temperature was 95 degrees at game time. He benefited from four double plays. Seattle managed just three hits over seven innings LA VERNIA AT CANYON 7:30 p.m. Cougar Stadium Tickets: $6 at gate Last year: Canyon, 14-6 Radio: KGNB-AM 1420, 7:05 p.m. ABOUT THE BEARS District: 28-3A Coach: Wayne Johnson (65-24 in ninth season at school, 124-58-5 in 18th season overall) 2004 record: 9-2 (5-0, first in 28-3A) Returning starters: 2 offensive, 3 defensive Outlook: Despite a lack of returning starters, La Vernia is picked to finish first in District 28-3A. Much of its success this year will rely on the performance of returning QB-SS James Tullis, who saw a significant amount of playing time under center last year. The Bears have a deep roster with 23 lettermen from last year’s team. However, they will field an almost entirely new offensive unit. TE Jared Andrews, the team’s only returning offensive starter, caught six passes for 99 yards and two touchdowns in 2004. The Bears’ defense is anchored by tackle Dustin Doege, who is expected to be one of the best in the district this season. defense do its thing,” Davis said. “We’re young, but the kids know their assignments and I expect that they'll play pretty good as a unit.” against Joaquin Benoit (3-4), who retired 19 batters in a row at one point but still lost his third straight start. Suzuki hit a grand slam in a five-run ninth, his 13th homer this season. Raul Ibanez also homered for the Mariners. The fact that Canyon is a 4A team and La Vernia in 3A will matter little in this contest — La Vernia boasts a 57-man roster with compared to Canyon’s 51. La Vernia also traditionally likes to schedule 4A opponents as tune-ups to its season, so playing a bigger school is nothing new to the Bears. “We never count on anything to be easy,” Davis said. “But with La Vernia we can count on it being tough. The thing you fear most about them is that they expect to win every time they step on the field.” Heading into this game, the Cougars have a lot of questions that still need to be answered. “Well, we only had one scrimmage so we have some things we need to find out about ourselves,” Davis said. “Against O’Connor, I liked the way we moved the ball, mixing up the run and passing games. We looked good in some spots, but also shaky at times.” The Cougars are hoping to repeat last year’s win but in the first week of the season, the coach said anything can happen. “It is also the first week of school for the kids and it is our first game of the season,” Davis said. “There are a lot of distractions that go along with that. But we have had three good days of practice this week where our concentration has been good, and I hope that carries over when we take the field Friday night.” °r:"”s 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM MON - SAT CLOSED SUNDAYS 1-35 JUST NORTH OF WALNUT (830) 624-2226 All payment! • *25% ♦ TTH down. 4.2% AWI X 72 moi.
