This week, the Shiner St. Paul Cardinals host Weimar for Homecoming to start a three-game home stand. The Shiner Comanches pay a visit to 3A Goliad.
SHINER COMANCHES AT LEXINGTON EAGLES
The Comanches play their final non-district game at Lexington.
“They are a solid ball club and their only loss out of four games is to Rockdale (defending 3A-DI state championship,” Shiner head coach Steven Cerny said.
The Eagles run a fast pace, hurry-up, no-huddle offense, primarily out of shotgun.
Cerny revealed that Lexington runs an up tempo due to the fact they have no players who go both ways.
Lexington leans more toward the run as they have 971 yards total (242.8 a game)
Jakobe Cooper is the focal point with 618 yards on 62 carries and nine touchdowns, 10 yards a carry and 206 yards a game. He ran for 3000 yards last season.
The Eagles have totaled just 343 passing yards in four games and are led by quarterback Jordan Kerr who is 25-of-39 for 220.
Leading receivers are J White (8-91) and Jarred Kerr (10-75)
“Our defense will have to practice the best we can for this style of offense,” he said. The Eagles run multiple formations on defense and like to bring the pressure.
“The line stunts a lot; the linebackers also stunt plenty,” Cerny said. “Lexington is not particular big up front but they are quick and aggressive. Our offensive line will have to know their rules and have a great performance.”
Aaron Allert is the leading tackler with 48 tackles on the year.
Shiner has this game to fine tune and finish getting a couple of questions answered before district play starts next week at Yorktown.
