Cameron Yoe scored 21 points in the second quarter, and zero in the other three quarters. That was all they needed though in order to come away with a 21-16 win over Mexia on Friday night.
“(it) Felt good winning my last first game with all the COVID going down, I was really thankful for getting the ability to win my last first game in high school,” Za’Korien Spikes said.
Za’Korien Spikes is one of the top wide receivers for the Yoemen. Last year he hauled in 39 receptions for an insane 929 yards (24 yards a catch) for 10 touchdowns. He’s picked up where he left off as on Friday he only caught three passes but made the most of them as he totaled 104 yards and a touchdown.
“It felt great to be back on the field with my team, so all the stuff we worked on in practice ended up paying off on the field,” Spikes explained.
Spikes accounted for over 50% of the passing offense production in Yoe’s win against Mexia.
Last season the Yoemen went 11-2 but their title hopes were thwarted by the powerhouse of Dane Jentsch and the Grandview Zebras in the third round of the 3A D1 playoffs. Spikes and company look to make sure that doesn’t happen again this time around.
“We are expected to get the district championship and to make a long run in playoffs,” Spikes said.
The Yoemen now have to get ready for a Bellville squad who also just held on for a week one win as they defeated Giddings 34-31. With Spikes on your side though never count Yoe out.
“I am not cocky, just very humble,” Spikes said on what fans should know about him.
