ABILENE, Texas - In a nation-wide football landscape where Baylor, Texas A&M and Oregon offenses put up video game stats each week, the high school equivalent could be Friday's showdown between Cooper (6-3, 5-2) and San Angelo Central.
Cooper averages over 43 points a game, the Bobcats hang just shy of 50 every Friday. Central QB Mickey Scott is a points machine. So is Cooper's Lorenzo Joe. The Coogs defense gives up 31 PPG. Central yields just 4 points fewer than Cooper. The ingredients are there for a pinball type game.
Perhaps we see who reaches 60 points first and dub them the victor? No matter what, fans are likely in for an offensive feast on Friday.
"They probably use the space on the field as well as anybody in district. The quarterback has got a great comprehension, even more than a great understanding, a great comprehension of what they're trying to accomplish offensively and how to be able to use the space on the field," Cooper head coach Todd Moebes said Tuesday.
What sweeter way for Cooper seniors to bid Shotwell Stadium ado than with a win over the Oregon Ducks of Concho Valley football?
"They're smashmouth. I mean, they got a big defensive line that's dominated the line of scrimmage at times this year. They have play-makers in the secondary. So yeah, its a very tough test," Moebes said.
Cooper is already a lock for the playoffs and kicks off at 7:30 this Friday at Shotwell.
