WINDTHORST – Juan Cavazos needs to buy another toilet seat.
No, Windthorst’s Defense Coordinator doesn’t do any repairs in the bathroom. The white oval seat will soon be hanging in the main entrance to the Trojans’ dressing room.
The seat is rewarded for a shutout that second-placed Windthorst earned Thursday evening with a dominant 34-0 home win over a young City View squad.
It’s a tradition that began during the Trojans’ state championship run last year. The players sign their names and the seat also includes the final score and the opponent.
This may be the second time this year Cavazos has had to run at Wal-Mart after the game, but it probably won’t be the last. City View trainer Rudy Hawkins can confirm this.
“I spoke to their coaches during the junior high games on Tuesday and said, ‘I haven’t seen you live, but I don’t think you’re far from your state team,'” said Hawkins. “I fully and completely agree. You have a dominant soccer team. ”
Windthorst scored four straight drives over a 14-minute stretch of the first two quarters to take control against the Mustangs. Clay Hoff and Haven Vieth ended these trips with two roaring TDs each.
But a touchdown would have been enough on the way the Trojans’ defense was carried out. Windthorst competed against the fastest team the defending champions had seen all year, keeping visitors to eight first downs and 144 yards.
“During practice, all week we focused on just containing, containing, containing,” said Jayden Friddle, Defensive End of Windthorst. “We knew this was our job and I feel we did a great job. The outside backers did a great job and the inside line, when it was time for everyone to get in, were right there. ”
City View (2-3) has found the red zone several times. In the first quarter, Kendrick Gibson’s 37-yard catch put the Mustangs on 13, but a chop block penalty proved costly and resulted in a missed field goal.
Zane Hackley intercepted Jordan Petty’s deep ball in the second quarter. City View also started a drive on Windthorst’s 20-yard line after half-time, but the Mustangs fell back and missed another field goal.
The Durham Brothers finished with just 42 rushing yards on 16 carries as they didn’t have much success both inside and outside the tackles.
“Your front people are really tough. # 64 (Eddie Llamas), he’s a stallion out there, ”said Hawkins. “We had one of our best guys with him and he was everywhere. And when you have Vieth in the middle, he’ll clean up a lot of things for her. ”
While City View goes into bye week at 2-3, Hawkins has told his kids that they had the same record at this point last year. The Mustangs only played two seniors on Thursday, which is a disparity against the Windthorst veterans.
“We knew we were young when we got in and we’d have some growing pains,” said Hawkins. “We have a week to clean up a lot before we host a strong Henrietta team. We know it’s a big game to take care of at home. ”
Hunter Herndon’s 16-yard touchdown pass from Zeke Mayo in the first play of the fourth quarter resulted in the only points of a disappointing second half. Starter Cody Cope led the Trojans with 98 yards and 121 passing yards.
The Trojans have now won 15 games in a row and haven’t been tested since their 22-15 win at the start of the season against Henrietta in 2021. There are areas for improvement, but Windthorst coach Chris Tackett can’t complain about one team outperforming their opponents by averaging 43-8.
“It’s overlooked when you score points but I thought our defenses were pretty solid in everything they did tonight,” said Tackett. “The basic offensive looks good, we’re just adding to it.”
Now the Trojans (5: 0) travel to Hameln to avenge the individual defeat of 2020. Before they focus on the pied piper, Cavazos needs to buy another bathroom accessory.
Last year’s signed toilet seats are currently in his man’s cave. However, the entire promised toilet is – as soon as five shutouts have been achieved – stored in his shed.
Windthorst is still three shutouts away from earning another china throne, but the way the Trojans play it seems like only a matter of time.
Cavazos may wish to purchase these toilet seats in bulk. And he’s perfectly fine with that.
