Aggie-bound Aschenbeck, No. 14, and running back Cedrick Perkins, No. 3, have again made the Brahman Slot T work to perfection in 2013.
The Brahmas enter their quarter-final against Refugio with a 27-game win streak, second only to the 29-game streak of Katy High, the defending 5A D2 state champion.
The senior-laden East Bernard team (25 at our last count) has rolled over all 12 of its opponents at a 55.1 points per game clip.
The defense has been just as good, holding six opponents scoreless, two to one TD each and three to two touches in the end zone.
Houston Christian (8-4) was exceptional among Brahman foes, scoring 27 in their week two matchup, yet allowing 62.
Overall, the East Bernard defense has given up a meagre 6 points per game, an average any team would covet.
With their powerful offense and ability to defend against both the run and the pass, the No. 1 ranked and defending 2A D2 state champion Brahmas will be solid favorites to advance past Refugio into the state semi-final round.
Dare we pick an upset? Not quite. But we will say that we honestly believe the game will be full of surprises.
There’s no telling what Coach Jason Herring and staff have been cooking up for the past 12 months. Surely, there has to be a way for a Smart Cat to outfox a Ragin’ Bull.
