WHEN ALLEN HAS THE BALL
Allen Academy: B. Boyd (46 of 72, 63.89%, 854 yards, 18 TD, 2 INT; 23 carries, 302 Yards, 6
TD) B. Tucker (9 rec, 208 yards, 5 TD, 54 carries, 537 Yards, 12 TD) E. Chapa (22 carries, 260
yards) A. Boegner (19 rec, 433 yards, 8 TD) J. Lee (24/34 XPA, 70.59%, 1/1 FGA, 100%)
St. Joseph: M. Nelson (19 tackles, 5 INT) T. Barrington (35 tackles, 6 sacks, 2 INT) J. Najvar
(22 tackles, 2 INT) T. Brightwell (20 tackles, 3 FUM REC) R. Hutka (19 tackles, 3 DEF TD)

Keys: St. Joseph must account for the trio of Boyd, Tucker, and Boegner, as the three have
accounted for nearly three quarters of the Rams’ offense. The Rams must be careful of the speed
of the Eagles’ defense. Boyd will have to be aware of the ball-hawking Matthew Nelson as he
has 5 interceptions on the year. The Eagles will look to get after the QB Boyd and keep him
from creating big plays on the offensive end.

WHEN ST. JOSEPH HAS THE BALL
St. Joseph: T. Brightwell (45-66, 68.18%, 797 yards, 15 TD, 2 INT; 17 carries, 371 yards, 6 TD)
T. Barrington (52 carries, 479 yards, 6 TD, 9 rec, 103 yards, 1 TD) J. Najvar (20 carries, 195
yards, 4 TD, 15 rec, 311 yards, 5 TD) M. Nelson (9 rec, 142 yards, 7 TD) R. Milhollon (4 rec, 93
yards, 2 TD)
Allen Academy: R. Hassel (57 tackles, 4 sacks, 14 TFL) B. Tucker (41 tackles, 7 TFL, 2 INT, 2
FUM REC) E. Chapa (36 tackles, 1 sack, 2 TFL, 2 FUM REC) L. Meadows (31 tackles, 2 sacks,
7 TFL, 1 FUM REC) K. Dupont (31 tackles, 4 TFL, 1 FUM REC) A. Boegner (10 tackles, 3
INT)

Keys: Allen will need to key on Brightwell and make him uncomfortable on the offensive end.
The duo of Brightwell and Barrington has carried the Eagles offense thus far. The Rams must
keep the duo in check and prevent the speedy Eagles’ offense from creating momentum shifting
plays. Brightwell will have to be aware in the pocket and be wary of the Rams defensive threat
Hassel as he has recorded 4 sacks and 14 TFL on the year.


Did you know: St. Joseph played 11-man from 2003 until 2018. Last year, in the Eagles first
season back in six-man, they were 7-5 on the season and reached the regional final. Adrian
Adams took over the Allen program in the 2018 season and has led the team to an 13-4 record.
