The Timberview football team improved to 2-0 on Thursday night with a 21-17 victory against Hebron, and coach James Brown said it was a good all-around effort from his team.

Timberview will take on Arlington on Friday night, and Brown said that his team will once again have its hands full against the Colts.

“It's going to be a good one,” Brown said. “They are a very good football team. They've got a lot of speed and a great quarterback and running back. They beat us last year, so it's something we've got to get prepared for.”

Brown said he was pleased with his team’s effort against Hebron and said that it was an all-around good performance.

“Going in, we knew it was going to be a very physical game, and it turned out to be just that,” Brown said. “We obviously had some questions offensively heading into the season, and I think we have answered a lot of those questions. We knew that we were going to be pretty good defensively this year, and we feel that we showed that in this game.”

Brown said he could not have asked for a better non-district schedule leading into the challenging district competition his team will face beginning next week.

“I would say that our district is one of the best in the state, if not the best,” Brown said. “For district play, and the type of speed we see week in and week out is something we really have to prepare for. The physical nature of our opponents is another thing we have to deal with, and the size and physical abilities of Hebron helped., Arlington and Summit both have a lot of speed, so our non-district scheduled has really helped us a lot in getting ready for district.”

Brown said he has been impressed by with the way a couple of players have been performing the first few weeks of the season.

“I think overall, defensively, our backfield of Brandon Simmons and Ed Paris are playing very well,” Brown said. “I feel like two linebackers, Brandon Garner and Rashard Burton, as well as Jacob Addison have all stepped up for us.

“Our defensive linemen Alejandro Anzaldua and Sam Amaka have really anchored our line and are both returning all-district players. On offense, our quarterback Tevin Muse and slot receiver Myron Galliard have done really well for us.”

•  Over at Summit, the Jaguars dropped a close one to South Oak Cliff by a score of 27-20 last week.

Summit led 7-6 at the end of the first quarter on the strength of a Jearld McGlothin touchdown run and led 9-6 at late in the second after the Jaguars defense scored on a safety.

Ryan Rodriquez scored on a 31-yard field goal in the second quarter and Jerrell Peterson would score on a touchdown run in the fourth quarter to make it close.
