Jarek Broussard + Dallas Bishop Lynch Too Much for Texas High in Opener
TEXARKANA -- Colorado commit Jarek Broussard caught two touchdowns and Dallas Bishop Lynch stifled Texas High's running game in a 24-7 win Friday night at Tiger Stadium.
The Texas High loss came in Gerry Stanford's first game on the sidelines as the Tigers' head coach.
Bishop Lynch, which won the TAPPS Division I state championship in 2016, fell behind 7-0 early but quickly responded and never let Texas High get any breathing room after. Coltin Clack found Vonderick Stanley for a 46-yard touchdown just under eight minutes into the game, but that was the only time the Tigers found paydirt.
Bishop Lynch responded with three first-half touchdown passes from Sam Vrana -- two to Broussard for 49 and 39 yards, respectively, and the other a 15-yarder to Donavan Payne. Vrana finished the game 11 of 13 passing for 181 yards with an interception.
Broussard caught six balls for 122 yards and rushed four times for 42 yards in the loss. Texas High, meanwhile, was held to minus-6 yards on the ground.
Clack was the Tigers' main source of offense, completing 15 of 26 passes for 176 yards and three interceptions. Chris Lyles led Texas High in receiving with six catches for 73 yards. Tevailance Hunt had six catches for 43 yards and Stanley had three catches for 64 yards.
