The Shiner St. Paul Cardinals have an open date, while the Shiner Comanches play their final regular-season home game as they host Kenedy.
KENEDY LIONS AT SHINER COMANCHES
The Comanches hit the road to battle fellow undefeated team Weimar Wildcats to continue district play.
The Lions come to town for Senior Night at Comanche Stadium at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
Kenedy comes in at 4-3, having defeated Louise, Pettus, Runge and Woodsboro but fell in their district opener to Weimar 40-6 and averaging 34 points a game.
Offensively, the Lions are a Slot-T team led by running back Oscar Hinojosa (678 yards, 11 touchdowns) and fullback J’ren Salais (537 yards, eight touchdowns). As a team, the Lions run for around 300 yards a game.
“Kenedy runs the football out of the Slot-T and we have not seen that style yet,” Shiner head coach Daniel Boedeker said. “They have good players and move the ball well, and we have to key on Oscar Hinojosa and J’ren Salias.”
On defense, Kenedy lines up in the split.
“They have good size on the defensive line and linebackers will blitz a lot,” Boedeker said.
The Comanches will have to make sure to have stellar blocking on the perimeter and from their offensive line to counter the Lions good-sized line and pressure from the linebackers.
Shiner will have their bye next week before traveling to Wallis Brazos.
