He's thrown an amazing 39 touchdowns and only two interceptions, all of this while playing only one complete game in leading No. 5 Tivy to a 9-1 record. If that's not enough, Manziel has rushed for 1,403 yards and 24 touch- downs. He has also returned two kicks for scores and caught a touchdown pass this season. In Tivy's biggest game to date, the Antlers crushed previously unbeaten Boeme Champion 56-24 to earn a district tide. "He's a special player, no doubt," said Tivy head coach Mark Smith. "He's our catalyst and he makes everyone else around him better. He's a true leader in every sense of the word." Manziel, actually de- committed to the University of Oregon, the No. 1 ranked team in the country, and instead pledged his services to Texas A&M so his parents could watch him play football at the next level. The Aggies could be back in the national championship picture sooner than expected if Manziel keeps up his current pace. Tivy has scored 571 points this season, an average of 57.1 per game, and the Antlers' low- est output of the season was 33 points in a non-district game against three-time defending state champion Lake 11"avis. "We just have to go out there and hope to get a few stops," Shelton said. "He is the key to everything they do." Manziel has led Tivy to two straight state semifinal[ losses. Smith doesn't think the Antlers will be looking past Hays on the heels of thte Rebels' 41-0 loss to Smithson "falley last Friday night. "I think everything that could have gone wrong for Hays in that game did," Smith said. "We've seenwhat they can do and we know they have some good athletes. Tl-aey wouldn't be in the play, offs if they weren't a good teatm. Our motto is to respect everyone we play but to fear no one.." Shelton said he kno~s his of- fense, which was held tto fewer than 100 total yards against the Rangers, will have to pray bet- terto hang with Tivy. "We have to do a good job on offense against Kerrville," Shelton said. "I though~ we played our worst game of the year last Friday. We know we will have to do much better this Friday night." Smith added that while a state tire is Tivy's ultimate goal as Manziel and the Antlers gear up for another playoff run, they are still a team that's trying to improve every day. '~ state title is obviously a big goal, but whether we get there or not won't define this team," Smith said. "The journey along the way will define us. Would not winning a state title be dis- appointing?Yes. But right now we're like 64 other teams in this division that want to end their season with a win." Kickoff for Friday night's game between Hays and Tivy at Clemens' Lehnhoff Stadium is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Lobo Football: Lehman hands Leckhart its single win Continued from pg. 1B 4A as junior tailback Levi Med- ley took the game's opening kickoff and zig-zagged his way through the Lockhart defense before sprinting 90 yards for a touchdown.
