Keep up with the action all season long: 2015 Frisco High School Football Schedules and Results
W Frisco (4-0, 2-0) VS The Colony (1-3, 1-1)—31-21
After last week’s blowout win over a formidable Heritage team, it appeared as though The Colony’s offense had turned the corner. That is, until last Thursday, when they met face-to-face with one of the most underrated defenses in District 9-5A.
The Raccoons’ defense allowed the Cougars to put six on the board in the first quarter, then pitched a shutout in the second. And it was in that second quarter that the Coons’ Idrees Ali (237 yds, 2 TDs) and company complemented that stellar defensive showing, by putting up 17 points, taking a commanding 17-6 lead into halftime.
The Cougars, led by RB Khalil Banks (126 yds, TD; 107 yds rec. TD), actually outscored Frisco in the second half, 15-14, but that big second quarter by the ‘Coons proved insurmountable.

W Centennial (2-1, 1-0) @ Heritage (2-2, 0-2)—54-33
Sometimes a bye week isn’t a good thing. Teams can get rusty with that extra week off; in these situations it’s crucial for the coaching staff to make sure that practices closely resemble game day action to keep them from growing stagnant.
First-year Titans coach, Ronny Mullins and his staff did an excellent job of keeping the Titans both hungry and game-ready.
The Titans were led by RB Anthony Pegues (254 yds, 3 TDs), who is averaging just shy of 250 yards per game, and a defense that was able to keep the Coyotes all-star triumvarite of Amare Jones (353 total yards, 4 TDs), Bubba Ogbebor (169 yds, 2 TDs) and Kene Nwangwu (191 yds, 2 TDs) off the board just enough to secure the win.

W Independence (2-2, 1-1) VS Little Elm (0-4, 0-2)—20-14
In last week’s GOTW, big props must be given out to Coach Story’s Independence Knights for securing not just their first two-win season in the school’s short history, but also for feasting on their first slice of district-winning pie.
Junior Kyle Saddler, who tends to be interception-prone, put together his finest game to date; tossing for 255 yds with 3 TDs, and zero picks. Saddler’s favorite target was WR Colton Nielsen, who reeled in eight catches for 105 yards and two TDs. The Knights defense stepped it up too, allowing just two total scores—TDs in the second and fourth quarters.
Up Next: @ The Colony (2-2, 1-1)
W Lone Star (4-0, 2-0) VS Liberty (1-3, 1-1)—41-14
If you’re a “glass is half full” kind of guy, then you can state flatly that the Liberty RedHawks held the dominant Lone Star Rangers offense to their poorest showing thus far. However, if 41 points is going to be the Rangers’ worst night on the year, I’m sure fans of the Rangers are just fine with that.
Take away a 20-point second quarter, though, and the Liberty defense did a fine job corralling Jason Shelley (265 total yards, 4 TDs), who even threw a rare interception—just his second of the year—in the first quarter. But in the end, the Rangers’ many weapons, including RB Robert Hall (84 yds, 2 TDs), WRs Jaylen Dixon (68 yds, 2 TDs) and Coby Shelton (53 yds)—proved too much for the RedHawks to overcome.
Up Next (Lone Star): @ Little Elm (0-4, 0-2)
Up Next (Liberty): VS Wakeland (2-2, 0-2)
W Legacy Christian (3-0) VS Arlington Grace Prep (3-1)—38-31
Although Legacy Christian had been very solid heading into Week 3, Arlington Grace looked like an unstoppable machine. After all, their offense had averaged 54 points per game over their first three matchups. However, Coach Ambry’s Eagles were more than up for the task.
Down 31-28 heading into the fourth quarter, Legacy QB Jack Henry Knight (180 yds, 3 TDs) threw a 31-yard pass to WR Pepper Snider (154 yds, 2 TDs) late in the game to secure the Eagles’ third-straight win. RB Chase Eisenmann (176 yds, 2 TDs) once again set the pace for what is becoming a very balanced attack—a great sign as Legacy heads into district play in the upcoming week.
