KLST Player of the Week: Blackwell makes program history, advances to first state semifinal

Local Sports

SAN ANGELO — Hello December and hello Sunday, which means it’s time to crown this week’s KLST Player of the Week.

And it’s only right to honor the lone Concho Valley team still standing in the high school football playoffs.

This week, our award goes to the Blackwell Hornets football team.

The Hornets are 13-0 this season and the word “dominant” doesn’t even describe the kind of season Blackwell is having.

The 6-man football team advanced to the state semifinals for the first time in program history after defeating Jayton on Nov. 29 behind a strong six-touchdown performance from senior quarterback Michael Lowry.

Let’s put Blackwell’s 2019 season in perspective. Out of the 13 games played, the Hornets have won via mercy rule nine times, outscoring opponents 745 to 230 and is averaging 57 points per game this season with four shutout wins.

Blackwell will face Motley County for a spot in the state championship on Friday in Knox City. Kickoff is set for 6: 30 p.m.
