Modeste led Byron Nelson with over 200 yards rushing and 4 TDs.

Having played Oklahoma state champ Bixby and Texas power Lake Travis, Timberview’s schedule was one of the toughest in the state. Lake Ridge came in 2-0 and ranked in the top 10 of the area’s 6A rankings.

Not that Timberview beat Lake Ridge, but it’s how the Wolves did it.
