The Longhorns will be on the road again this week
Well, not too far down the road. Jones (1-2) will travel to Star-Spencer (2-1) to take on the Bobcats 7:00 on Thursday September 23, 2021. Only 8.1 miles separate the two schools, who are meeting for the sixth time since the 2014 season.
Jones hopes to build off the momentum from the September 10 victory against the Luther Lions 50-12. The Bobcats will try to stretch their winning streak to three games after topping Western Heights and Capitol Hill their last two outings.
2014 35-7 Jones
2015 44-2 Jones
2016 52-20 Jones
2017 54-7 Jones
2020 46-6 Jones
Dating back to the 2014 season, the Longhorns are 5-0 against the Bobcats with average margin of victory of 34 points.
Through the first three weeks of the season, a number of Longhorns are putting up pretty impressive numbers
Carson May 54/84 (64.3%), 815 yrds, 8 TD
Cayden Karl 19 rec, 398 yds, 2 TD
Emmitt Murphy 10 rec, 198 yds, 4 TD
The Longhorns finished outside of first place in the district standings last year for the first time since 2014. The road to another shot at a district title starts with Star-Spencer.
Jones Head Coach Dave Martin has emphasized that he wants his team to improve each and every week. Looking at the stats over the last three weeks it is clear that the Longhorns have steadily improved each outing. Look for the Longhorns to try to establish the run game. The Defense will try to limit big plays and control the Bobcat Offense.
