HUMBLE – There are plenty of ways to describe Shadow Creek's defensive unit.
Nasty. Disruptive. Elite.
It's easy to see these attributes in a defensive crew that has been recognized across the country to be filled with talent at multiple positions.
Headlined by LSU-commit Alec Bryant, Texas-commit Xavion Alford and Kansas State-commit Ronald Triplette the Sharks are loaded with talent and it shows.
In the season opener against Summer Creek, the defensive unit produced 23 of the eventual 64 points en route to a 64-14 victory for Shadow Creek.
"They were hard to handle," Shadow Creek coach Brad Butler said. "They were really fast on the grass tonight."
Start with the brute force up front.
Facing Summer Creek, which has a dual-threat quarterback who likes to use his legs, the Sharks would have to be strong up front. That's exactly what they were out of the gates.
In Summer Creek's first 13 plays from scrimmage, the Bulldogs were hammered back for -31 yards. The tone was set.
