|Football: JV Gold smashes Rockwall by Scott Farrell||Comment (0)|
The JV Gold Scots scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and ran two kickoff returns back for touchdowns in a 60-7 dismantling of Rockwall in their season opener at Highlander Stadium. Jet Tuma ran for two touchdowns and threw for another in the first half, and 10 different players scored for HP.
The third quarter provided three highlight plays in Anthony Vallera's 89-yard kickoff return to open the second half, Michael Thomas' 52-yard quarterback keeper in the third quarter, and Hayden Greer's 87-yard kickoff return. Parker Van Dyk, one of eight Scots who ran the ball in the game, scored the Scots' final touchdown on a 33-yard run.
The JV Gold's next game is at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday back at Highlander Stadium against Jesuit.

|Football: JV Blue wins opener, 22-6 by Scott Farrell||Comment (0)|
The JV Blue team made up of varsity reserve players beat Everman tonight, 22-6, in their season-opener at Highlander Stadium. Alex Keeton scored on HP's first play from scrimmage on a 34-yard run. Hardy Davis made it 9-0 with a safety after sacking the Everman quarterback in the end zone.
Charles Hubbard caught a nice 8-yard fade pass from Scott Ellerman for a 15-0 lead, and Keeton added a one-yard plunge in the third quarter to account for the Blue's scoring. Sam Hayward kicked two extra-points for the Scots - the other was blocked.
The JV Blue plays at Jesuit next Thursday at 7 p.m.

|Alumni: HP duo face each other on TV by Scott Farrell||Comment (0)|
Now that the Cowboys are done with their first two preseason games, here's a note regarding another NFL topic that's close to home.
HP has two alumni who are playing in the NFL right now, and they'll face each other tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m. CST. Matthew Stafford begins his second season with the Detroit Lions playing at the Pittsburgh Steelers, where Daniel Sepulveda has the punting job anchored down for another season.
Stafford may not play much, but we would expect Sepulveda to perform on each punt since the Steelers don't have any other punters on the roster.
The NFL Network will carry a tape-delayed broadcast of the game at 9 a.m. Sunday; 6 a.m. Monday, and 3 p.m. Tuesday. If anyone has Sirius satellite radio, Sirius Channel 121 will air the game live.
