The Offensive and Defensive Line of Jett Casillas, Owen Martin, Austin Kuyon, Chris Simonelli and Cale Pennington, all of Flower Mound, was a brick wall that contained the Buckeyes Opponents and allowed the Buckeye’s Intricate Offense to roll over their opponents.
The defensive backs and linebackers of Cade Axeline, Dalton Sturrock, Ryan Crispin, Andrew Kelley, Tanner Stanley and Everett Eads all contributed key plays throughout the playoffs to allow the Buckeyes to shut down their opponent’s offense.
