Keep up with the action all season long: 2015 Frisco High School Football Schedules and Results
Frisco Raccoons (1-0) @ Red Oak Hawks (0-1)—Fri. 9/4, 7:30 PM @ Lumpkin Stadium
Red Oak, coming off a winless 2014 campaign, were hammered by a tough Wylie East team, 49-7 in Week 1. The Hawks exposed an inability to defend against the run, as they were shredded by the Pirates, surrendering 342 yards and three TDs.
If there is a glimmer of hope for Red Oak, it is in their passing game, as QB Chris Bugg had a solid game, tossing for 335 yards and a score.
The Frisco Raccoons, on the heels of last week’s win, are going to be licking their chops as they’ll get a chance to show off their Wing-T offense against a rather porous Red Oak defense. Look for Idrees Ali and Rohan Vasa to build on their Week 1 success and put up some big numbers.
Centennial Titans (0-1) @ Lake Dallas (1-0)—Fri. 9/4, 7:30 PM @ Falcon Field
Last season, the Centennial Titans had one of the toughest non-district schedules in the area, and after last week’s tough loss to Highland Park, it’s beginning to look like a 2014 mirror-match.
This week’s opponent, the Lake Dallas Falcons, put a serious hurt on Wakeland last week, and did so without their starting quarterback, Daegan Hahn.
The Titans should pose more of the threat than the Wolverines, and also have one of the best RBs in the district in Anthony Pegues, who bruised the Scots defense for 300-plus yards a week ago.
As both Lake Dallas and Centennial feature playmakers on both sides of the ball, look for this to be another down-to-the-wire affair for the Titans.
Heritage Coyotes (1-0) VS Carrollton Creekview (0-1)—Fri. 9/4, 7:30 PM @ Toyota Stadium
Much has been said about the Heritage Coyotes’ rise into prominence in 9-5A a year ago.
In last weeks’s win over Richardson, they proved that last year’s postseason success was no fluke. Thanks to upper-tier athletes like Bubba Ogbebor and Kene Nwangwu, fresh-faced QB Amare Jones (54 yds rushing, 186 passing and 4 total TDs) can relax and not try to do too much.
Carrolton Creekview was unable to recover after Saginaw Chisholm Trail’s double-digit first quarter sent them reeling. This mainly a hat-tip to SGT’s defense than it is a knock on the Mustangs, as this squad returns 18 starters from last year’s District 11-5A championship team.
Independence Knights (0-1) @ FW Castleberry (0-1)—Fri. 9/4, 7:30 PM @ W.O. Barnes Memorial Stadium
The Independence Knights seek a repeat of last year’s defeat of Castleberry, the team’s only win thus far, in their brief existence.
Last week, Castleberry was shutout by Ponder, 21-0, whereas the Knights fell apart for one quarter, and Princeton took advantage, going on a 25-6 run in the third quarter to secure the win.
The Knights have some serious playmakers in RB Brandon Williams (104 yds, 3 TDs), and WRs Myles Russell (106 yds) and Kolbre Smith (122 yds, TD) and will likely be too much for the lackluster Castleberry defense to contend with.
Liberty RedHawks (0-1) @ McKinney (0-1)—Fri. 9/4, 7:30 PM @ Ron Poe Stadium
Both Richardson Pearce and McKinney exploded out of the gates last week, but Pearce proved to have a few more bullets in the chamber, as they galloped to a 45-28 win.
On the flip-side, Liberty was straight-up dominated on both sides of the ball by a feisty Denison team that scored in double-digits in every quarter save for the second.
For the RedHawks to get their first win of the season, they’re going to need more consistency from QB Grant Buss (38%, 2 INTs) and better blocking from their offensive line to open up some lanes for RBs Reggie Hubbard (32 yds) and Chris McPhaul (23 yds).
Lone Star Rangers (1-0) VS North Forney (0-1)—Fri. 9/4, 7:30 PM @ Frisco ISD Memorial Stadium
Everyone, from the fans in the stands, to the officials on the field, knows that QB Jason Shelley is a gifted athlete.
What’s scary is just how much better he has become in the pocket. Shelley (76%, 324 yds, 2 TDs) put on an arm-strength show as he connected with WR Jaylen Dixon (183 yds rec, TD) for an 80-yard score in the first and a 47-yard bullet in the third.
And if the Rangers had just Shelley and Dixon to contend with, it’d be much easier for North Forney to gameplan. But a critical mistake for any who take on Lone Star would be to overlook RBs Robert Hall (45 yds, 3 TDs) and Darren Smith (TD); each of whom possess game-changing ability.
Week 2’s Game of the Week will likely be another game than can function as an offensive highlight reel for the Rangers.
Wakeland Wolverines (0-1) VS Lovejoy (1-0)—Thurs. 9/3, 7:00 PM @ Toyota Stadium
Despite having two running backs put up over 150 yards against them, the Lovejoy Leopards still managed to sneak away with a Week 1 win over Mansfield Legacy.
Lovejoy, led by RB Bowman Sells (116 yds, 2 TDs) took full advantage of three costly Mansfield Legacy turnovers, and managed enough offense of their own to sneak away with the win.
Look for the Wolverines of Wakeland to employ the same rush-first strategy against a Leopards squad that is clearly missing the run-stuffing ability of Jake Baumert (Army).
RB Jay Orji, who didn’t factor in a week ago, should have a big game for the Wolverines.
Legacy Christian Eagles (0-0) @ Cayuga (0-3)—Fri. 9/4, 7:30 PM @ Scarborough Stadium
The Cayuga Wildcats of District 11-2A, head into Legacy Christian’s week one matchup with the advantage of having already played three games this season.
The Wildcats were outscored in all three contests 74-41, so they’ll certainly be looking to get off the snide against the Eagles.
Cayuga might be in for a big surprise if they don’t plan pay particularly close attention to Legacy’s Chase Eisenmann, a running back that is more than capable of piercing even the toughest defenses.
