Jordan Owens' senior season will continue thanks in large part to his performance in John Tyler's 58-23 win against Texas High in Friday's Class 5A Division I bi-district playoff game.

The Lions' safety recorded two interceptions, including a 41-yard touchdown return, as well as a fumble recovery in the game for the ETSN.fm/Dairy Queen Defensive Player of the Week honor.

Owens' touchdown score came on his first interception. He jumped a route and was in full stride as soon as he caught the ball. The second pick came on a severely under thrown ball thanks to good pressure up front. His second catch deflated Texas High's morale.

With the fumble recovery, Owens accounted for more than a 20-point swing in the game.

Owens is the second John Tyler player to win the award this year. Pierre Leonard, a junior nose guard, won the honor after Week 6 of the regular season.

The safety has six interceptions and 47 tackles entering Friday's area round playoff game against Mansfield Summit at Rockwall's Wilkerson-Sanders Memorial Stadium.
