WATCH – Jenks cruises in football season opener in Texas


EVERYBODY CHEER THE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL SEASON IS HERE. JENKS IS KICKING OFF ITS SEASON IN TEXAS IN THE SECOND YEAR OF THE BORDER ROLE. THESE FIVE TULSA METRO TEAMS TAKING ON FIVE MANSFIELD TEAMS. ALL THE GAMES ARE IN TEXAS THIS YEAR. ONLY ONE OF THOSE GAMES IS TONIGHT, JENKS VERSUS MEDFIELD LEGACY. HEATHER GELLER JOINS US FROM MANSFIELD. Reporter: THAT’S RIGHT. JENKS HAD NO TROUBLE WITH MANSFIELD LEGACY A YEAR AGO IN OKLAHOMA BUT WE ARE IN THE LONE STAR STATE THIS YEAR AND IN BRONCO COUNTRY. SO IT IS A DIFFERENT STORY THE SEASON. KEITH RICKS KICKING OFF HIS SECOND SEASON LEADING THE TROJANS, A SLOW START FOR JENKS . LATE IN THE SECOND QUARTER, STEVE ROLLS OUT AND HE BREAKS AWAY. ON THE SAME DRIVE, TROJANS DOWN TO THE ONE YARD LINE. COX WILL FINISH THE JOB AND BREAKS THE STALEMATE AND JENKS IS UP SEVEN – 0. 3rd QUARTER, 10-0, OPENING DRIVE, COLBY ROGERS GET DOWN TO THE TWO YARD LINE AND THEN NEXT PLAY BACK IN ROGERS HANDS AGAIN AND THIS TIME HE GETS IN THE END ZONE, 17 – 0 ALL JENKS. TROJANS GO ON TO WIN IT BIG, 38- 0 AND THEY NEVER LOOK BACK AFTER THEY CAME ALIVE TONIGHT. THIS ONE WAS AN IMPORTANT ONE WHEN IT COMES TO HIS YOUNG TEAM AND WHAT THEY WANT TO ACCOMPLISH THE SEASON. THE BIG THING FOR THIS GROUP IS LACK OF EXPERIENCE AND YOU HAVE TO GET OUT AND PLAY TO GET THAT AND THIS WAS STEP ONE IN GETTING THAT AND SO THEY HAVE THIS UNDER THEIR BELT. THEY KNOW WHAT IS GO OUT TO COMPETE ON A FRIDAY NIGHT AND HOPEFULLY THAT WILL HELP US IN STEP 2. Reporter: WELL, THAT IS ONE DOWN AND FOUR MORE LEFT TO GO FROM HERE AT THE BORDER BRAWL. LIVE IN MANSFIELD, TEXAS COVERING NEWS THAT MATTERS, HEATHER GELLER, FOX23 SPORTS.
