The Cuero Record
Three Gobbler football players were selected to the Associated Press Sports Editors Class 4A all-state team, released Tuesday, Dec. 15, headlined by first-team selection Haden Haas.
Cuero’s impressive rush offense would not have been possible without the talented work in the trenches from the offensive linemen. Haas, a junior, assisted in the Gobbler offense averaging 265 yards per game on the ground and over six yards per carry.
On the defensive side, seniors Mike Hopkins (lineman) and Zech Hopkins (linebacker) earned honorable mention honors. Mike and Zech helped anchor a defense which only allowed 233 yards per game on average throughout the season, 118 rushing and 115 passing.
During Cuero’s playoff run to the state semifinals, the defense allowed 189 yards per game, less than 77 on the ground.
