Keep up with the action all season long: 2014 Frisco High School Football Schedules and Results
It always seems unfair that the grind of a ten-game high school football schedule can end so quickly. Two of the three Frisco ISD teams that made it to the 2014 UIL Bi-district round are now done until next season. However, one team has made it to the Area Round, and did so in impressive fashion.
5A Division I Region II Bi-District
L Frisco Wakeland (8-3) VS. McKinney North (9-2)—21-24
Up 14-7 at halftime, the Wakeland Wolverines watched their tenuous lead slip away, as McKinney North tied things up 21-all, sending the game into overtime. A field goal by McKinney North’s Chase Carraher spoiled an excellent game, and ended the Wolverines’ 2014 campaign.
Brett Altieri had a big night, rushing for 189 yards and 2 TDs, while WR Justice Williams combined for 100 yds of total offense a lone TD. Three Wakeland QBs, led by Jimmy Wilkins, tossed for 131 yds and a score.
L Frisco Centennial (5-6) @ Wylie High (8-3)—31-42
Wylie High matched the Centennial Titans point-for-point in the second half, enabling them to ride their 14-3 first half advantage into the 2014 UIL Area Round.
Titans’ RB Anthony Pegues proved that his tremendous running exploits aren’t just reserved for the regular season, as he racked up 216 yds and a TD. WR Riley Brasuell hauled in four passes for 44 yards and two scores, and QB Court Walker threw for 112 yards and 2 TDs. However, it just wasn’t enough offense to overcome a Wylie High attack that gained a total of 462 yards, with 312 of which came via the pass.
5A Division II Region II Bi-District
W Frisco Heritage (9-2) VS. Wylie East (6-5)—77-63
By the end of the first quarter of Frisco Heritage’s Bi-district matchup with Wylie East, the Coyotes led 14-0, and RB Kene Nwangwu had already amassed some 127 yards and two touchdowns. And, by all accounts, both Nwangwu and the Coyotes were just getting started.
Yet, this was far from a one-sided affair.
As it turns out, that fateful first quarter set the tone for a game that would amass a combined 140 points of scoring, and 1,374 total yards of offense. It’s okay, you can read that last line again; it goes: one-thousand, three-hundred and seventy-four yards of offense.
The aforementioned Nwangwu was an offensive wrecking ball, as he amassed 320 yards rushing, with an astounding SEVEN touchdowns. As impressive—nay, ridiculous—as that is, he was far from a one-man Coyotes show, as QB Malik Walker (320 yards, 3 TDs) did plenty to light up the Wylie East secondary, by finding his favorite aerial targets in Keaton White (158 yds, TD) and Bubba Ogbebor (113 yds, 2 TDs).
And the offensive performance of Wylie East cannot go without mention. After all, when you put 63 points up on the board (and it’s not in a basketball game), then you should probably walk away with a win. QB Braden Shewmake threw for 343 yards with 4 TDs and one pick, and WR Jared Wyatt was nearly untouchable with 9 catches for 268 yards and 2 TDs. RB Eno Benjamin had a fine night too, with 165 yds on the ground with 3 TDs; but it was Nwangwu and company that now find themselves one layer deeper into the 2014 UIL playoffs.
