And set the tone is exactly what Klein Forest did Thursday night against Alief Taylor. Especially Arkansas commit, Brad Spence. Completely unblockable in the first half as he feasted on Lion quarterback, Chase Jenkins, to the tune of 3 sacks. Eagles led 20-0 at the half.
Second half, Chase Jenkins who will have Spence chasing him in his dreams, steps out of yet another Spence sack and takes off down the sidelines. That's a 61 yard touchdown run and puts the Lions on scoreboard.
But it wasn't enough. Let me tell you about Jelani Watkins of Klein Forest. He's too fast...and he's too furious. Here he runs under this Jaylen Bragg pass for a 67 yard touchdown in the 3rd quarter.
4th quarter, up 35-21, Bragg to Watkins again for 29 yards. This is one of the best junior receivers in the state and he proved it week 1. Klein Forest wins 42-21.
