Sulphur Springs relied on one of its most dynamic playmakers in the Wildcats’ District 14-4A opener last Friday night.

And he delivered.

Senior running back Willy Ivery accounted for 312 yards of offense and seven touchdowns in leading Sulphur Springs to a dominating 63-28 win over rival Mount Pleasant. And for his efforts, Ivery is the Queen Offensive Player of the Week.

Ivery rushed for a season-high 243 yards and six touchdowns on just 15 carries and added three receptions for 69 yards and another touchdown. The shifty, multi-purpose back averaged 17.3 yards per touch in helping Sulphur Springs to its third-straight win.

The 5-8, 180-pound Ivery, who holds FBS offers from Colorado State, New Mexico, North Texas, Texas State and Toledo, scored on runs for 1, 49, 5, 23, 67 and 55 yards in addition to hauling in a 46-yard touchdown pass from Larry Pryor, who accounted for 304 yards and three touchdowns of his own.

In all, Sulphur Springs piled up 662 total yards. During the Wildcats’ three-game winning streak, their offense is averaging 61 points and 648 yards per game.

Ivery, who was injured early in Sulphur Springs’ season-opening loss to Tyler Lee and missed the next week’s game, has rushed for 751 yards and 17 touchdowns on the season and caught 11 passes for 172 yards and another score.

Ivery and Sulphur Springs (4-2, 1-0) plays at Texas High (5-1, 1-0) in a pivotal 14-4A showdown Friday night. Queen 2013 Offensive Players of the Week
