Marquees Jenkins has been named as Sweet-water High Schoolâ€™s Football Player of the Week.
Jenkins, a 165-pound junior running back and linebacker, ran for a team-high 101 yards in season-opening 23-13 win on Friday over Eastland on just nine carries. He also had four solo tackles, five assisted tackles and one pass hurry on defense.
BLACKWELL â€” After failing to get a win on the field for nearly two years, Blackwell finally celebrated a victory â€” and a lopsided one at that â€” here Friday as the Hornets dominated Westbrook, 54-6, in their season opener.
Blackwell didnâ€™t waste a lot of time taking care of the Wildcats, either, as the game was ended at halftime by Six-Manâ€™s 45-point mer-cy rule.
Abilene Wylie replaced Argyle as the No. 7-ranked team in Class 3A in this weekâ€™s Associated Press high school football poll following a 31-14 win over the Eagles on Friday.
Wylie â€” unranked in the AP preseason poll â€” jumped ahead of preseason No. 1 Stephenville, which lost to Monterrey (Mex.) Tech 27-17 in its opener and fell seven places down to No. 8. Argyle dropped out of this weekâ€™s top 10 in 3A.
Monahans, after receiv-ing enough votes to earn a No. 14 ranking in the Class 3A preseason poll, received none this time after losing to Midland Christian 42-28 in its season opener.
