This is a tough post for me to write. For one, I’m a little heartbroken over the loss. And two, I don’t think anyone played extremely well yesterday. The team played pretty mediocre, and it shows in the final score. Everyone knew this would be a tough game coming into it though; Gundy and the Cowboys seem to have the Texas Tech’s number. Guess we’ll have to wait another year to see the streak of embarrassing losses come to an end. But regardless of how I feel about the game, it’s time to recognize three players as players of the game for Tech.
Offensive Player of the Game: Jace Amaro. Amaro racked up 174 receiving yards and a touchdown. He also suffered from a nasty hit by one of the Cowboys, and continued to play.
Defensive Player of the Game: Brandon Jackson and Pete Robertson. Jackson had six solo tackles, assisted with another, and one of his tackles was for a loss. He also broke up a pass, and recorded a qb hurry. Robertson only recorded three solo tackles, but he did intercept one of Clint Chelf’s passes and returned it 21 yards for a Red Raider touchdown.
We’re going back to Freshman of the Game today. Hopefully we can stick with it.
Freshman of the Game: Keenon Ward. The freshman out of Snyder was very productive on the defensive side of the ball. He had four tackles, one being for a loss, and an interception that he returned for 15 yards. After his interception the Tech offense found its way to the end zone.
Here’s to another chance for another win next week. Hopefully the boys can get that win against Bill Snyder and the Wildcats. Until then, tell me who y’all think the players of the game should be.
