FLORESVILLE -- The freshman Tiger football team has been beating up on the competition this year, and recently added to their impressive record with a pair of wins over South San and Antonian.

The Tigers rolled over South San Sept. 15 with an impressive 40-0 victory. The offense continued its domination, scoring on the first drive with Austin Aikens bulldozing his way to a 28-yard touchdown run. Also scoring for the Tigers were Dadrian Contreras on a 7-yard reception from Joshua Jeffreys, and a 13-yard reverse. Lorenzo Neaves also scored on a 15-yard run, while Troy Hughey hauled in a touchdown reception of 47 yards from Jeffreys. Matthew Pollok had a great block on Hughey’s reception. Jeffreys added a 2-point conversion run and kicked two extra points.

Defensively, the Tigers were very impressive recording their third shutout of the year. Leading the way was Matthew Pollok, who picked off a pass and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown, as Aikens threw a key block to clear the way. Nick Rangel caused and recovered a fumble. Other standouts included Neaves, Sebastian Rodriguez, Jody Trevino, Aikens, Diego Perez, Jesus Carrizales, Manuel Macias, and Jacob Sendejo.

The Tigers then scalped the Antonian Apaches 21-0 in a really hard-fought game. The Tigers showed a lot of grit and determination as they fought back from being down 7-6 at the half.

The offense started the game by keeping the ball the entire first quarter and a minute into the second on the fierce, bruising run attack of Aikens. The first score came on a 24-yard pass from Contreras to Hughey on a 4th-and-10 strike.

In the second half, quarterback Jeffreys sprinted into the end zone from 8 yards out. Jeffreys then hit Contreras for the 2-point conversion in the corner of the end zone.

The final score came late in the fourth quarter set up by Jeffreys, who broke loose on a 65-yard quarterback keeper. Aikens then ran over the Apache defensive line from 7 yards out. Jeffreys kicked the extra point.

Defensively, the Tigers took control early playing a very physical game. Neaves recorded a sack early in the second quarter ending the Apaches’ first attempt on offense, and then picked off a pass ending another drive. Other defensive standouts included Luke Smith, C.J. Felux, Macias, Jody Trevino, Matt Pollok, Jared Morin, and Contreras.

The freshman Tigers are now 5-0 on the year, and will open district play at home Thursday, Oct. 6, beginning at 5 p.m. against the Gregory-Portland Wildcats.
