I am pumped the game is on Thursday now; I decided to go to Leakey and Milford instead, but Alvarado is super close to me. Now, I get the best of both worlds! :)

It will be my first Strawn game since the UIL outlawed the horn. I loved that thing! GO GREYHOUNDS!

If it rains hard remember the Borden County game and that your not the first to experience such.

Ticket to the Dance Punched! Again! Awesome defense Hounds. Oakwood was fast. They did move the ball. I thought they were going to score at least 2 or 3 other times. As always a Team effort but Carlos Villanueva was hot tonight. Weavin and bobbin, dancing and duckin. Congratulations Greyhounds.

Here an unbiased account of last night's game:

Strawn: Clearly the better team and ran like a well-oiled machine. Several bigger kids, #7 was lighting, and they played fundamentally sound sixman football. Oakwood never really challenged for control of the game, however, so I am not sure how much Coach Lee took his foot off the gas in the second half. Honestly, I wish he would have gone for 1 when the score was 49 to 6 because I paid $7 to get into that game and wanted to see a full 4 quarters haha!

That "criticism" aside, Strawn is one of the premier (and in a way one of the only) programs in sixmanfootball. I counted 25 boys playing football! The cut off for DII is in the 60's, so darn near every boy in the school plays football. Those little boys playing behind Alvarado's visitors bleachers have a lot to look forward to as Strawn has a football culture. The players not playing on the sidelines yell, they are great sportsmen, and that "S" on a Strawn player's helmet rivals Superman. Factor that in with the most historic rivalry in sixmanfootball versus Gordon and Strawn is a sixman powerhouse.

Oakwood: Before I make this point, I would to throw out two qualifiers. First, Oakwood only had ten players which made any attempt to beat Strawn with their 25 players very very very arduous at best. Secondly, I think Strawn could have ran spread, an old school deep snap and pitch back spread, and easily scored on Oakwood.

The people on this site who discussed Oakwood's talent were not wrong; I am not so sure Strawn had anyone as big or fast as #1. The Panthers moved the ball and looked like they could compete with Strawn if both teams played a "tight"-orientated game.

Given this fact, Oakwood's defense looked better than it's offense. This should not happen in sixman because the offense possesses every advantage. Why did it happen? Strawn ran tight 90% of the game!

Oakwood did a pretty good job of stopping Strawn which is why the game went into the 4th quarter. Honestly, Strawn scored on several big 4th downs, mostly in the first half, after Oakwood did a good job of stopping them.

In order to score, Strawn did a pitch back to #7, and he weaved around until he found the end zone. Basically, Strawn had to use spread elements to score on Oakwood because Oakwood played well versus Strawn's spread.

Oakwood's base offense was a J-Bird spread with some variations. They did best when they ran the ball out of it. Their passing game looked like an 11 man passing game based on timing, and they even had their center blocking instead of running out for a pass a few times.

Oakwood also "faked" the pitch and then rolled out the guy who took the snap. Usually, a team runs a "fake" because the play they are faking was previously effective. In sixman, you have to exchange the ball as quickly as possible because the defense WANTS the guy who takes the snap to have the ball for as long as possible. That play call puts the guy who took the snap in a tough spot if a receiver is not open right away. Honestly, it drove me so nuts that I went and sat on the Strawn side after halftime.

In my opinion, that game should have been tight going into halftime with Strawn winning by 20 to 30 points. Either way, I enjoyed the game and appreciate the Oakwood players not giving up.

My opinion on the game:

Oakwood probably couldn’t beat Strawn. However, they could have kept it closer if they wouldn’t have fumbled over and over, caught a pass or two, and/or stopped Strawn on fourth downs when they scored on acrobatic plays by #7. Oakwood looked defeated after they fell behind by two scores. Every time they did something positive, they fumbled or got a penalty or something went wrong, putting them in 3rd and 4th and long. Honestly the game should have been 50 something to 20 something, but Strawn was clearly the best team on the field and with those numbers, they can always be successful. Poor Oakwood suited 10 and I only saw 8 of them playing, so heck of a run doing what they did with basically 8 kids. Strawn, size up your rings!

Good observations all around but defensively for Oakwood, to me they never stopped Strawns outside sweep. That’s why they kept going to it over and over and I guess they saw something on the right side because they kept pounding it right at the end on that side. Oakwood moved the ball just fine but you could tell they’re not used to getting in third or fourth downs because they apparently are built on big plays. Plus their big qb didn’t have time to throw so he was uncomfortable looking. Again, hats off to Strawn, they’re just on another level.
