Horton tempers expectations, seeks improvement vs. Tyler Street

By CLINT FOSTER

The Community Christian School Warriors (0-1) are down, but not out after a 69-38 season-opening loss to the Johnson County Homeschool Lions (1-0) at Miller Stadium, last Friday. With another non-district home game looming against Dallas Tyler Street Christian Academy (1-0) this Friday, the Warriors have an opportunity to continue to improve before taking a bite out of the meat of their schedule.

In their game with Johnson County, the Warriors trailed just 24-22 after the first qaurter, but things unraveled when the Lions converted three CCS turnovers into touchdowns in the second quarter, putting the Warriors in a hole that proved too deep to climb out of.

“Johnson County is a good team, bottom-line,” CCS head coach Bryan Horton said. “[Our turnovers were] the difference in the ball game. We’ve just got to eliminate mistakes on our part. We gave them basically three touchdowns and you don’t win many ball games against good teams or even mediocre teams doing that.”

As a consolation, Horton said he was impressed with many of his younger players who stepped up in the Johnson County loss. He named junior wide receiver/defensive end Tye Gage and junior center/defensive tackle Daniel Timmons specifically. Of course, Horton said he was also pleased with junior and one of the Warriors top playmakers, Joby Bradshaw. Bradshaw accounted for three total touchdowns – two rushing and one passing – and was a perfect four-for-four on extra points.

Like Bradshaw, Isaiah Brazeal was also responsible for three touchdowns, rushing for two and receiving the 50-yard scoring pass from Bradshaw. Per usual, Horton was also pleased with the Brazeal cousins, Sammy and Isaiah, for both their leadership and playmaking ability.

“Sammy Brazeal had a masterful game on both sides of the ball,” Horton said. “In the second half, he really stepped up and led us. I give him a lot of credit for the way we played in the second half.
