1. Fast Start again. I was not at the game, I was watching it at home as I was unable to make it, but yet again, the offense got off to a fast start and never looked back.
2. Slowing Tarleton-TSU is a team that can and will score. Last night the defense played very well and frustrated TSU’s offense and just drilled their defense.
3. Special Teams-Another blocked kick and/or punt which resulted in a score, great kickoff coverage, and Saul Martinez continues to just get better and better as a field goal kicker. Chase Thrasher might be the best kickoff guy in the entire league. From top to bottom, the special teams are fantastic.
Offense- A. Just a solid A. Could not have done much better.
Defense-A plus-Tarleton could not score more than 10 points against a our first string offense, and the only reason 25 were scored were due to TSU leaving in their first string offense and continuing to fire away on the Lions second string group.
Special Teams-A Plus. Great kicking and coverage and the punt return for a touchdown.
Coaching-A Plus- Carthel and Co. and the team ready yet again.
Offense-Deric Davis- 24 out of 32 for 324 yards. Yeah, that will do the trick.
Defense-Toni Pulu. He was very involved in making life very complicated for Texans QB’s and the backfield overall.
Special Teams- Chase Thrasher. He continues to get better and better every week as a placekicker and having a good kicker to boot the ball deep and give the coverage units time to get down there is critical, and Thrasher’s role has been critical in the improvement of the coverage team.
