Defensively, Duncanville is one of the best in the state and feature a star studded cast. Players like senior linebacker Jordan Crook, defensive end Omari Abor, to name a few are some of the leaders on that side of the ball.
DeSoto has a high powered offense and will be put to the test. It starts with the running game lead by running back Chris Henley Jr. , who has been dominate on the ground this season. Wide recievers like Johnny Cook II, Mike Murphy, have been some of the top targets for DeSoto’s senior quarterback Matthew Allen. The senior gunslinger has been pin point accurate the season and has been very consistent in spreading the rock around.
The outcome of the game will depend on DeSoto’s ability to stop the run and over a come a tough defense in Duncanville’s.
