GC Football: Perrin-Whitt edges Frost, 20-16

Frost — The Bears settled into making defensive stands after allowing Perrin to score on their first offensive series. Frost fell, 20-16.

Ben Thorton and Robert Worley eached picked-off a Chase Akin pass, Woody Woods recovered a fumble, and the Pirates were forced to punt three times. Meanwhile, the Pirates defense held Frost on six of eight fourth down conversions to stay in the game - including stopping the Bears on the Perrin five-yard line in the second quarter.

Perrin RB Pepper Rasberry gained only 38 of his 148 rushing yards in the second half, but 37 came on a touchdown run with 9:26 left in the game.  Then Pirates then allowed Frost to move the ball from the Bears 27-yard line to their own 27-yard line.  Facing fourth down and two, Frost fumbled the snap with Zach Terry recovering for a two-yard loss.  

Four plays later, Perrin scored the go-ahead touchdown.

The Bears two touchdowns came on their only two successful fourth down conversions.  With fourth and four at the Perrin 14-yard line, Worley, playing QB, rolled left with enough open territory to run for the first.  Worley then spotted Laton Eastman behind two defenders in the corner of the end zone.

  • RON MORGAN.jpg Morgan; Remembering House and a better era

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    His father was a head coach for years at Pecos High and his brother-in-law is the head football coach at DeSoto, but Lawrence Williams Jr., a man who loves coaching football, never had any ideas about being the head man.
    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''
