The 2021 Llano Yellowjackets scored on all 8 of their offensive possessions and beat the San Saba Armadillos 48-8 at the “Graveyard’ Stadium Friday night to improve their over all record to 3-1 for the season. Likely being over 20 years since Llano has played San Saba, the Jackets improve their over all record against the long time rival to 33-32-1.
Llano hardly missed a positive beat Friday night. Senior quarterback Maddox Green was 12 for 17 passing and 128 yards. Junior Miguel Hernandez playing only the first half had about 50 yards rushing and caught a pass for 14 more. Junior Ross Prokop lead Jacket receivers with 4 catches and 118 yards from Maddox. And Maddox found Jackson Dillard, Sam Sueltenfuss, and Ulisses Martinez for key receptions. Plus big brother also threw to Brother Briggs Green for 21 yards and a Jacket first down. 6 Yellowjackets caught passes, and 5 Jackets carried the football, with Maddox and Brock Fly scoring from the ground. Carson Kuykendall carried most of the load, as Miguel was held out the second half due to an injury that Coaches did not want to aggravate. Carson ended the game with about 130 yards and five rushing Tds.
A complete team win. Love how the offensive line improves every week. Seniors Zach Watson and Matthew Whitley are showing the leadership. Both seasoned starters from last year. And Juniors Ross Edwards, Daniel Sandoval, and Jaxon Lange are better than sound.
Again, want to mention the play of special teams. Going down on kick offs sometimes is dangerous. Jenin Bastyens, Ricky De la Torre, Isaiah Bush, Fitz Kennedy, Aiden Guido, Ross Prokop, Brock Fly and Cole Franklin show no fear. Great coverage.
