But play he did, and he definitely played well, guiding Haughton to victory in the Parkway game. Last week, Prescott threw for 231 yards and four TDs -- in little more than a half of action -- as the Buccaneers raced to a 41-7 lead over St. Michael.
Woodlawn took charge at halftime in its first-round game against Ruston, scoring 21 unanswered points after the break to advance, 35-14.
RB Kenneth Collins (14-95) scored three TDs, and QB Kendall Barnes threw for 175 yards and another score for the Panthers.
Prior to the season, there were avid debates concerning the identity of the best quarterback in Louisiana. Now, 11 weeks of action later (not including jamborees), the answer is clear: Dak Prescott.
Woodlawn hasn't seen a quarterback with Prescott's skills, but will Haughton's defense be able to put the clamps on the Panthers' balanced attack?
NO. 11 LEESVILLE (9-2) AT NO. 6 FRANKLINTON (10-1) -- This matchup is another potential offensive extravaganza. Last week, Leesville all-purpose star Levander Liggins scored five touchdowns for the fourth time this season.
There's no doubt that Leesville head coach David Feaster can scheme with the best of the offensive gurus.
The Demons, whose only setback was to Abilene, Texas, have scored almost 600 points and Robinson (15-plus yards per carry) and Magee (10.9 yards per carry) are both physically superior athletes that simply run through would-be tacklers.
WRs Chris Briggs and Vincent Wilson and RB Reggie Wilson are other important factors for Franklinton, which was the 2009 Class 4A state runner-up.
Freshman Elijah McGuire has over 1,000 yards rushing for the Terriers, who smashed McKinley last week, 42-6. McGuire ran for three scores and threw for two more in that game.
Bastrop, in the first-round, downed Alexandria Senior High, 64-9. The Rams received outstanding efforts from center Earl Ross Downs, RB Rodriguez Moore, and WR/DB Jevante Watson in building a 52-7 lead at the half.
Head coach Brad Bradshaw and the Rams are still hopping mad after Neville outscored them, 56-44, a few weeks ago.
NO. 15 O.P. WALKER (7-3) AT NO. 2 SALMEN (9-1) -- Tulane commit Robert Kelley ran for 211 yards and three touchdowns last week in O.P. Walker's 34-6 rout of Minden. Five-star defensive tackle Anthony Johnson, an LSU commit, registered a safety as the Chargers' defense contained the Crimson Tide all night.
O.P. Walker isn't merely a running team, either. QB Devin Powell had two TD passes last week.
Sams and Lipham, as high-profile QBs, get most of the publicity on Salmen's team, but three seniors on the defense -- DT Malcolm Pichon, DE T.J. Price, and CB Chrishawn Dupuy -- have all enjoyed top-notch seasons.
With plenty of big, fast, and talented prospects on the field, there should be some big hits dished out in this game
