PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (KXAN) — Hutto continued its hot start to the season with a 40-27 win over Connally (0-5, 0-1) on Thursday night in the KBVO Big Game of the Week.
The Hippos outscored the Cougars 19-6 in the second half to start out 1-0 in District 11-5A D1.
Hutto’s prolific offense is humming right along — even with new pieces at quarterback and running back. The Hippos outscored their non-district opponents 121-49 in the first three games.
On defense, LSU commit Landyn Watson continues to wreak havoc, coming up with a fumble recover and a tackle for a safety in just the first quarter.
Hutto (4-0, 1-0) had an unexpected bye week last Friday. Their game with Houston Lamar was canceled due to flooding in the Houston-area last week.
Players to Watch
Hutto: Sophomore quarterback Grayson Doggett took the reins from Chase Griffin (UCLA) and has posted solid numbers over the first three games of the season. Doggett is averaging 263 yards a game. RB/WR Dajon Harrison is an electric play-maker that is garnering interest from top programs at the college level.
Pflugerville Connally: RB Demetris Gardner-Holmes and QB Darius McGrew are in control of the passing and rushing attack accounting for over 80% of Connally’s offense this season.
