CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - The Ray Texans are looking for a share of the District 31-4A title, but to get it they're going to have to shore up their defensive performance in big games.
The Texans' D was torched a couple weeks ago by the Alice Coyotes in a 65-46 loss. Ray knows it's going to have to perform much better defensively Friday against district leader Flour Bluff. The Hornets are lead by sophomore QB Cody Brewer, whose towering frame has put up big numbers along with freshman running back Reidel Clayton.
Several of Ray's big times players are game-time decision for coach Cody Simper. All-state receiver Ben Brooks was banged up in that game against Alice two weeks ago, and didn't play last Thursday against Laredo Martin. Coach Cody Simper wouldn't tip his hand on Brooks or several other guys, saying they're all "game time decisions" against the Hornets.
