Game Recap

The Anderson Trojan football team gave their fans a lot to cheer for during their game against the Manor Mustangs at Mustang Stadium on Friday the 13th. Contrary to a day associated with bad luck, there were no interceptions or fumbles by either team in a game that ended up with the Mustangs winning by a score of forty-two to seven.

Anderson played a determined and talented team, providing the fans with plenty of expectations for the next game in district play. They left you feeling that all the moving parts will continue to synchronize into results that will reflect the effort, sweat, and heart the players put into each play under the lights.

Game Summary

1Q

The Trojan defense went on a string of four stops, with three-and-out series for three of those stops. With cheering fans, a great first quarter sack brought back the sound of foot stomping thunder from the aluminum stands, a sack that was just one sign of an improved defensive effort for this season.

OlineThe Trojan offense moved the ball with various running plays, including a few new jumbo package looks from the offensive line, looks that Anderson fans have not seen this year. The offense was faced with a huge defensive line, the likes of which they had not seen since earlier in the year in non-district play. Although the line had their hands full, there were no sacks of the Trojan quarterback. Late in the first quarter the Trojan field goal attempt was blocked.

2Q

corners_defenseThe punting team was strong with booming punts and very good punt coverage. At least three times during the first half the Mustangs were pinned deep by great punting and coverage, including a 59 yard punt leaving Manor inside their 5.

The first half defense included two great pass break ups, helping to keep Manor to an almost non-existent deep passing game. The play by the corners and safeties was complemented with improved defensive penetration into the Mustang backfield.

3Q

The second half started with the same intensity of the first half, with Anderson ripping off some long runs and protecting the quarterback. The Offensive line and the Quarterback continued to fight against an impressive defensive rush by the Mustangs. There was effective scrambling by the quarterback, getting off throws, and there were some determined runs with Anderson continuing to maintain the threat of breaking solid gains in the ground game.

The punt squad continued to wow the crowd. A muffed snap sent a groan through the Anderson stands, which turned into a thunder clap of feet stomping and cheers when the punter chased down the football, picked it up, and punted an impressive kick that was capped with a great bounce and more solid coverage by the punt squad. The crowd roared in appreciation of quick thinking and clutch performance.

RP_AHS_DefenseThe defense showed continued execution and strength against a determined Manor offensive line that included a tackle the likes of which evoked memories of Refrigerator Perry, a player who could seal the edge of the line with great effectiveness. The secondary continued to knock down passes, including a long pass that would surely have gone for a TD if it had not been knocked down. The Manor receiving core included players that looked more like linebackers, a hand full for the Anderson defense.

4Q

The fourth quarter play showed increased intensity, and there were several hard hits to the Trojan receivers and the quarterback. Both teams continued to play in fierce competition, the desire to compete regardless of the overall situation.

d_penetrationThe defense contained the Mustang first string and starting quarterback to a single score in the last quarter of the game. With all the pass knock downs by the Trojan secondary, it was a big surprise when a deflection by the defense became a lucky catch by Manor for a long gain.

The fourth quarter score by Anderson highlighted the dogged determination shown by the entire team throughout the game. After overcoming some small penalties in a drive that started in the third quarter, Anderson was faced with opening the fourth quarter with third and about five.

4q_runThe entire line blocked to the right and the hand-off play was a misdirection to the left, and a shiver move between the defenders by the running back resulted in clearing the first down marker by three yards.

The scoring thirty yard pass play started with the quarterback eyeing a receiver cutting across the middle of the field with the defender trailing. A rushing D-Lineman forced the quarterback to scramble right, then curling left, where the defender slipped. Keeping his eyes open, and with a receiving group that continued their routes, and an O-Line keeping all other defenders out of the backfield, Anderson scored with a long, cross field throw, to a second option receiver cutting from the middle of the field to the left pylon at the front corner of the end zone.

onside_kickThe ensuing on side kickoff was recovered by Anderson in spectacular fashion in a textbook on sides kick. The ball spun and bounced at about eight yards, sending it up into the air amid a crowd of defenders and Trojans. A leaping catch by Anderson secured the ball in the air, where the receiving player was hit and flipped, coming down on top of players, with the ball secured in his hands. Anderson ball.

Game Recap

 

belles_and_band2017 Pre-District play ended on Thursday night when the Anderson Trojans faced the Liberty Hill Panthers at House Park. There was a steady downpour for the game, which was, oddly, the team’s last game at House Park for this season.

A spark was lit by the Trojan defense on Thursday night inspite of injuries amongst the starters. The defense kept the score tight by forcing 5 fumbles and stopping several Panther drives. The hard work was shared by all of the defensive players with critical open field tackles by Bryant Shamiya, Andre Jackson and Kyle Brown. Kyle Brown led the defense in tackles but had company in Kameron Langford, Andre Jackson, Jackson Green, JohnMark Radle and Nathaniel Velez.

Special teams protected the ball in the wet conditions. Ben Caven was successful at booting the ball into the end zone to avoid the Panther’s returns. Dean Dixon and Cameron Turner held tight to the ball on the Trojan’s returns.

ahead_by_6On the offensive side of the ball, Coy Fullmer was the go-to option in the wet weather. The opening drive saw some excellent blocking by the offensive team giving Coy 90 yards of open field for a quick 6. Allowing only one sack, the offensive line held strong giving Senior quarter-back Davis Adams time to see the field and maneuver. The coaches were gutsy going on 4th down successfully several times

cheerleaderThe Trojans have an off-week then district play begins with an away game against the Manor Mustangs. Come take a trip to the country to enjoy some Friday Night Fever. The team is playing hard and playing well. The band’s Luminosity performance is stunningly artistic. The Belles are impressive as usual in their choreography and our new cheer squad director has put a lot of pep in the dynamic Trojan cheer squad.

Trojans News · Should High School Basketball Players Be Able to Declare for the NBA Draft? – Presented by VNN


lebron-dunkAs Americans, we tend to fall in love with our rising stars who are breaking out on the national stage at a young age.  At 18, all eyes were on Patrick Kane as he started his professional hockey career with the Chicago Blackhawks. Nobody blinked twice when MLB’s Bryce Harper was selected to the National League All-Star team at 19.  Likewise, there were no calls for the U.S. Men’s National Team to pump the brakes on budding soccer star Christian Pulisic when he scored his first goal for the Stars & Stripes at the young age of 17.

Yet, in basketball, most of the top high school talent is required to follow the controversial “one & done” trend. As the rule goes, an athlete needs to be at least 19 years old to be eligible for the NBA Draft, forcing all hopeful pros into at least one year in college or a European League. The policy, instituted in the NBA CBA in 2005, was aimed at yielding more developed and matured players as draft options, instead of seeing teams draft solely on raw talent and potential, and stashing those prospects away on their bench.

Over the last decade, this rule has been a nonstop point of discussion and debate. Many appreciate the importance this rule places on attending higher education, and further developing professional skills. In addition, many college programs can benefit from knowing that the prospects they are recruiting will indeed commit to a school, rather than decide to forgo college altogether. Conversely, however, many have questioned whether forcing the likes of Andrew Wiggins, Ben Simmons and Anthony Davis to go to college for a year is really thmaxresdefaulte right path for top-level talent. The careers of Tracy McGrady, Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James might say no. In addition, the one-and-done phenomenon sees many top players in and out of a college faster than you can say “Karl-Anthony Towns,” rendering a college game that is often focused more on individual showcases and annual ‘big names,’ rather than cheering for programs that see players develop over 3 or 4 years. This controversy is especially relevant, as current NBA Commissioner Adam Silver recently stated at the beginning of this year’s NBA Finals that “We all agreed we need to make a change . . . It’s one of those issues we need to come together and study. … My sense is, It’s not working for anyone.” (read more on Silver’s statement) Such a change could be to do away with the rule altogether, or amend it to have caveats, such as requiring those who choose to go to college to stay at least 2 years or those who choose to turn professional out of high school to spend a year in the G-League.

So, what do you think? Should the NBA change their age requirement and allow basketball players to turn professional fresh out of high school?

Should the NBA Allow High School Athletes to Declare for the Draft?

Yes! High Schoolers should be able to be drafted.
No. High Schoolers should be required to go to college first before playing in the NBA
