HUGE WIN over Denison!!
Coming off of our big win over #10 in the state Corsicana, the Spartans played a great game against Denison and pulled out a win in the last minute of the game! With a great snap from Brayden Chandler, a perfect hold from Hunter Prescher, and a solid 25 yard field goal from Ben Harwell the Spartans were able to go ahead 52-49 over the Yellow Jackets. The win was confirmed when Da'Quan Campbell pulled down an interception in the end zone in the last seconds of the 4th quarter. A tremendous effort from our offensive line helped Kyle Burns put up 452 yards of total offense. The Spartan defense forced a couple turnovers and did their best to give the Yellow Jackets a tough experience at BISD Stadium.
