Burch said he expected a close, low scoring game. “I don’t expect a high-scoring game But if somebody does score a lot, I hope it s us.” he said Bf BAVIN bibb Sport* odltor Canyon’s budding football tradition can turn Into a sweet-smelling bou quet Friday night. The Cougars face a playoff-like situation in their 8 p.m. Homecoming game with the Fredericksburg Battik’ Billies. If they win the District 13-4A finale, they keep playing — a second consecutive trip to the playoffs. Lose, and the season’s over. Nobody’s been talking about losing around Canyon this week “The kids feel good about it; they’ve been thinking positive and working hard,” Cougars Coach Troy Burch said. “They’re starting to really get together as a team.” Burch said the team’s winning at titude has eliminated any negativism, and made workouts go more smoothly. “It’s Just a pleasure,” he said “I guess this is what you work for It sure makes preparations a lot easier.” Canyon’s preparations this week have included, for the first time In three weeks, quarterback Danny Hernandez. Hernandez was running at about 80 percent of full speed on Wednesday, but he was throwing the ball well, Burch said. With Hernandez’ passing, the Cougars have the third dimension to an offense that won two games with Just two — inside running and outside running. “We’d like to be able to throw the football some,” Burch said “Ten or 15 times maybe, and hopefully with the accuracy that Danny had before he was hurt .” Hernandez’ return gives Burch another dilemma — finding a place for Kody Smith, who has started at quarterback the last three games and is the team's leading rusher with 566 yards “You’ll probably see Kody in the backfield some, since he’s been working back there each week." Burch said. “I’d like to have Kody in there (at quarterback) on the sprin-touts and the bootlegs and when we -un the power sweep. I want Danny In there to throw the football ” LESLIE KRIEWALD! / MEHALL) ZEH UNO Canyon s Wade Jankowski follows guard Bobby Reed on a sweep during last week's game against Lockhart Smith s return to work at halfback gives Canyon depth that it hasn’t had all year in the backfield Wade Jankowski and Brad Campbell have averaged 6.2 and 4 9 yards a carry, respectively, since they became regulars at the halfback positions Burch credits the emergence of the offensive line — center Marc Heymann, guards Mark Torres and Bobby Heed and tackles Ted Fleener and Alton Kills for much of the backs’ success. That line will need another good effort this week against the Billies, who are as big as any team in the district in the middle Starters Steven Sanchez (B O, 229) and Bennie Medlock <5-8, 235) are spelled by Tommy Crenwelge (6-3. 248) and Daryl Whitworth <6-0. 215). The rest of Fredericksburg’s lineup isn t that big. and the Billies may not be as quick as the Cougars up and down the line, Burch said Fredericksburg's offense isn’t dazzling with Its quickness, but it has been Impressive with its passing The Billies have used the pass to move the ball on everyone this season, including New Braunfels. The passes aren’t usually long, but they are effective. Quarterbacks Drew Hardin and Scott Immel are both good at hitting the running backs with short passes and letting them turn upfield for extra yardage, Burch said. Last week, the Billies ail but aban- donded their running game, using only 20 ground plays against the Unicorns. But Burch looks for a different approach this week “I think they'll try to establish the running game before they’ll try and go to the passing game on us,” he said “Their running backs are pretty good; they both have good balance, if not great speed.” Fullback Frankie Villanueva and tailback Timmy Stuewe both weigh about 165 pounds, and both are solidNB guns for 10-0 season Big total Edgewood back runs up score, numbers in rout By TOM LABINSKI Staff writer OERVL CLARK MEHALL) ZEI TUNG New Braunfels fullback Stephen Hanz takes a handoff from Victor Sierra during a game earlier this season By TNI ASSOCIATED PRESS San Antonio Kdgewood s Ronald Asmore set out to break the school single-season rushing record against San Antonio Memorial last week Asmore accomplished his goal and much more in a 60-0 rout of w inless Memorial, which completed its season scoreless and played the last half of its schedule with a team of sophomores and freshmen In his final high school game.

In spite of Hays’ record, the Rebels are not a team to be overlooked, he said. “They are the best 0-4 team that we have ever played in a district game,” Streety said The Rebels had the lead late in the game against both Fredericksburg and Lockhart and lost a 6 2 game against Kerrville last week “The only team that had really beaten them in district has been Canyon. They could just as easily be 3 1 in district,” Streety said. The ball control Rebels have dominated the time of possession in each game, including the 19-6 loss to Canyon Streety said their patience makes the Rebels dangerous, “They are very much a ball-control team A lot of teams would grow impatient and try to come up w ith the big play, but they are very patient They’ll just keep coming at you," he said Offensively, Hays lines up in the wishbone with ll seniors and seven two-year starters.
