Last Friday, I covered Austin LBJ’s area playoff game against the Alice Coyotes. Last time I covered the LBJ Jaguars, they held off Manor for a non-district victory early in the season.
Prior to the season, I named the Jaguars as one of my sleeper teams in the 4A classification. In addition, LBJ has benefited from two favorable playoff matchups. In fact, LBJ’s opponents have had a combined 6-11 record, prior to facing the Jaguars. However, LBJ’s offense has found their rhythm and has been able to move the ball downfield. As a result, the Jaguars have been able to score 133 points through their first two playoff games.
Jaguars quarterback, Oscar Gordon, has been on the same page with receivers, such as Andrew Mukuba, and threw for five touchdown passes against Alice. Similarly, the Jaguars have had success on the ground as well. Against Alice, sophomore running back, Sedrick Alexander, tore the Coyotes apart and rushed for three touchdowns. Altogether, the Jaguars were able to eliminate Alice from the playoffs with a dominant 72-20 victory.
This weekend, the Jaguars will face a big test against the state’s third-ranked team, the Calallen Wildcats. Consequently, LBJ will need Andrew Mukuba and Latrell McCutchin to make some big plays. Last weekend, Mukuba had a statement game as he scored a total of two touchdowns, in addition to his stout play at the safety position. Despite missing the first half against Alice, due to being ejected from their previous playoff game, McCutchin was also involved in the scoring action as he caught a touchdown pass in the second half.
