Casey Shorter - El Campo
How do you start off your season? How about an opening 92-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Charles Shorter III, or #TheAnchor, took this one to the house. What a return by him. El Campo's Shorter also had one grab for 40 yards and a single rush.
Walker Warncke - Needville
The temperature on the Blue Jay Stadium field felt like 110° on Saturday. The Needville (@NeedvilleF) seniors turned up the heat to roar back to a victory down 14 points with 2:45 left to pull off a 36-35 victory. #txhsfb pic.twitter.com/wbhvOzRmEq— FB Herald sports (@fbheraldsports) August 30, 2020
