DISTRICT PREVIEW: Forney Football enters district undefeated
The Forney Jackrabbits are riding a high and preparing to have one of their best seasons yet. As they look to enter district play with an undefeated record, VYPE DFW takes a look at the program in the 2023-24 season so far.
Opening their season with a huge 64-10 victory over the Crandall Pirates, it was clear from the start that Forney was already setting the tone. Over the next three games, the Jackrabbits would post nearly 200 unanswered points combined against their opponents. In week two, the Jackrabbits hosted Frisco Memorial in a 62-0 victory. Week three saw a 53-0 victory over Mesquite Poteet on the road to end non-district play.
Kofi Edwards, Javian Osborne, Kevin Espinal, Cameron Carter, Alex Perin, Alijah Merkson, Kyle Crawford, Orin Gee, and Dylan Stephens are just some of the athletes who contribute on the offensive side of the ball. Putting in the work from kick-off to the last whistle, this offense scores early and often in order to keep the ball moving every second of the game.
Henry Abramson, Tristan Bennett, Joshua Anusiem, Aaron Flowers, Kellen Wolverton, Kutter Vlasin, Kelvion Riggins, Landon Ritter, Landry Hopkins, Luke Rodriguez, among others are known to make big defensive plays and stops for the Jackrabbits allowing domination in their games.
What To Expect
Forney opened district play on the road against West Mesquite in a dominating fashion with a 69-0 victory. As the team travels to Lufkin on Friday, September 22nd for their second game of the season, they're looking to continue their dominance. Lufkin is 3-1 on the season with their first district game being a 42-0 loss against Longview.
As the team progresses through district, their toughest opponents will be seen in Longview, McKinney North, and Tyler. Set to face off against these three on October 6th, October 27th, and November 3rd, fans can expect this team to put in all of the required work to walk into the playoffs ready to continue their mission.
