Teams ranging from the aptly named Frisbros to the Vicious and Delicious squared off in the tournament that was shortened by Tuesday's storm. The teams that reached the semifinals were a group of Hays High alumni, the Dragons, who won the 2015 tournament, Vicious and Delicous and Frisbros. Thyme Rebel Football Continued from pg. 1B downs and 423 yards. "He's a quick back that has power," LaHue said. "He's a good zone runner and we need to find a way to get him the ball. We put him in the backfield and left him there in the spring." Three players will vie for the starting quarter- back spot this summer. The three include Gentry Braugh, Tyler Conley and Issaac Castilleja. LaHue said Castilleja and Conley both saw action last season, with both starting games in 2015. Braugh is "athletic and runs the option well and is pretty fast." The team's strength lies in the trenches, LaHue said. On offense, Hays re- turns linemen Peyton Steele, Seth Seele and Josh Lopez, who started every game last season. Joining the line are Will McSorley and Zach Val- dez. "That's where it all starts," LaHue said. "You can play 7-on-7, but you don't have the five in front of you. Football is dif- ferent when you put the pads on. Those guys... are a good group. They're smart and physical." Hays' Manny Galvan, who LaHue said had a "good spring," along with Cameron Johnson, leads the defensive line. Four Rebel defensive players return from last season, LaHue said. Joining the defense will be cornerbacks Hector Fuentes and Jason Fowler. Nathan Tovar will also assist the defense at the safety position. "They've worked extremely hard to this point," LaHue said of the younger players. "Their transition is going to be good." But the Rebels' new path in district play will be a challenging one, La- Hue said. It will include games against the likes of Lake Travis, Wesflake and 5A state champion Cedar Park. But LaHue said there's "some prestige" with playing in what could be one of the toughest 6A districts in the state. "Everyone wants to talk about (Westlake and Lake Travis). They deserve the big talk, but I think every- one from top to bottom is pretty good," LaHue said.

Powell, along with the of- fensive line, will be a key cog in the Rebel offense in 2016. "I love the way our kids think our kids are excited have worked.
