Keep up with the action all season long: 2014 Frisco High School Football Schedules and Results
Frisco ISD schools won four out of seven games during week one of the 2014 high school football season. That’s a fine start to the season, especially with district play—when each win counts—looming in the not-so-distant future.
W Frisco High VS North Forney—35-17
Up by just one possession at the half, it appeared as though the Raccoons might be in a dogfight for the second half against the Falcons. However, thanks to a 14-point third quarter, Frisco High cruised to their first win of the 2014 season.
Of 58 total offensive attempts, the ‘Coons predictably threw on just six of those. Regardless, new QB Rohan Vasa looked sharp as he managed 72 aerial yards and a touchdown. RBs Paul Terry (154 yds, 2 TDs), Mykael McCorry (99 yds, TD) and Idress Ali (62 yds) all had big games on the ground, while Dayton Bush (36 yds, TD) found the end zone with his lone reception.

W Frisco Heritage @ Richardson—36-23
The Frisco Heritage Coyotes took advantage of an explosive third quarter—that would see them score three times—to send the Richardson High crowd home dejected. Both teams struggled out of the gates, and the Coyotes led just 8-3 at the half before figuring out that Eagles defense in the second half.
One goal for QB Malik Walker coming into this season was to cut down on his interceptions. Walker did just that, managing 195 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs on 29 attempts. RBs Jacques Norris and Kene Nwangwu combined for 161 yards rushing and two TDs, while Keaton White led the receivers with 98 yards and a TD.

W Frisco Lone Star VS Sherman—63-0
The first of the Frisco schools to start their season thanks to a Thursday night kick-off, the Rangers certainly delivered on their preseason promise. A dominating performance on both defense and offense silenced the Bearcats’ crowd in their own backyard.
Already a laugher after just the first quarter, Lone Star added two more scores in the second quarter to make it 49-0 at halftime. Four different Rangers ran for a touchdown with QB Jason Shelley leading the charge with 106 yds and three rushing TDs. Once the smoke cleared, Anthony Barron, Justus Velicer, Robert Hall and Jordan Jones had combined for 259 yards on the ground with 8 TDs. On the other side of the ball, Lone Star’s defense forced 8 Sherman punts and limited them to just 101 yards of total offense.

W Frisco Wakeland VS Lake Dallas—54-41
Thanks to a 94-yard kickoff return by Trent Shaw and a 44-yard scramble and score for Brent Altieri, the Wolverines had managed to stun the Falcons faithful as they led 14-0 after the first quarter.
Lake Dallas would rumble back to within 9 points at halftime, but the early advantage of Wakeland would prove too much for them to overcome, despite a 21-pt fourth quarter outburst.
The aforementioned Altieri averaged over seven yards per carry on his way to 147 yards and 2 TDs, wile Jake White was impressive as well with 82 yards on just 9 carries and a score. QB Noah Anderson found Trent Shaw for a 69-yard pass and touchdown in the fourth quarter.

L Frisco Centennial @ Highland Park—0-47
A 27-point explosion in the second quarter by Highland Park was the nail in the coffin for Centennial, who simply couldn’t find an answer to the Scots’ offense or defense.
QB Court Walker threw for 172 yards and Anthony Pegues led the ground game with 76 yards. Devin McCord and Jackson Grimes caught 12 passes for a combined 157 yards receiving.
Up Next: VS Lake Dallas
L Frisco Independence @ Princeton—21-62
Although the Knights were routed in their school’s first-ever football game, there are positives to be taken from the 41-point loss. The offense did manage to score consistently, as they found the end zone in the game’s first three quarters.
QB Kyle Saddler (14/31, 235 yds, 3 TDs 2 INTs) showed that he has enough arm to put up big numbers for the passing game, and Myles Russell should be a key target all season as he caught seven passes for 175 yards and two scores.
Up Next: VS FW Castleberry
L Frisco Liberty @ Denison—17-20
In a game that was reminiscent of a Mortal Kombat “mirror match,” both Denison and Liberty scored exactly the same way prior to OT. Despite winning the total yards war, 351 to 297, the RedHawks were tagged with the loss thanks to a Hunter Emery field goal during the first overtime.
Goyal Udgam and Reggie Hubbard were the stars for the RedHawks as they combined for 236 yards rushing and two TDs.
