For Fort Worth Southwest, all roads on offense lead to its blue-chip recruit Robbie Rhodes, especially in a matchup between elites in District 7-4A.
A reliable detour, however, is Jameion Williams.
Both routes led to another lopsided Raiders' victory Friday in a 42-24 triumph against Granbury at Clark Stadium.
Rhodes, a Baylor recruit, kept Granbury on its toes by lining up at receiver, running back and quarterback.
Rhodes accounted for three touchdowns -- two running and one on a 54-yard bomb from quarterback Justice Adams-Jones.
Williams, the Raiders' workhorse running back, rushed for 281 yards and two touchdowns on runs of 13 and 90 yards.
Southwest (6-1, 4-0 in 7-4A) remained unbeaten in district and tied for first with Aledo.
"We're going to try to give [the ball] to everybody," said Rhodes, who also caught a pass for a 2-point conversion. "We've got playmakers on our team. When they catch the ball, they make a play."
Southwest overcame three turnovers, including one that led to a Granbury score in the third quarter.
Granbury (5-2, 3-1) earned every one of its 418 yards against the Raiders.
Southwest stuffed Granbury's run, but quarterback Ryan Suitt completed 27 of 44 passes for 340 yards and two touchdowns.
Running back Justice Love, a top scorer in 7-4A, was limited by the Raiders, though he did have a 40-yard touchdown reception on a pass from Suitt.
Taking direct snaps, Rhodes scored on runs of 16 and 7 yards. Rhodes had only 91 total yards, but his presence gave teammates plenty of chances.
All roads, of course, for the District 7-4A championship go through Aledo.
Southwest and Aledo square off next week at Bearcat Stadium in Aledo.
"It's a big game for us, and we're going to play like it's a playoff game," said Rhodes, whose teammates have won four consecutive games since a loss to Alvarado. "We have to come out hard. Aledo is a good team with good coaches, so we got to practice hard."
Granbury sits alone in third, ahead of a pack of Fort Worth schools.
