D8xvdmav6b2vz2rnwmna

Kansas State commitment caught 21 passes for 529 yards and an eye-popping 25.2 yards per catch.

Mettenberger highlightsClick Zach Mettenberger Butler, 6-5/245, PQBHere to view this Link.
Completed 97 of 168, throwing 19 TDs to only three picks. His efficiency rating is a staggering 172.8.

Game:San Antonio (Texas) Reagan at San Antonio (Texas) MacArthur, Saturday


Top Prospects:
D8xvdmav6b2vz2rnwmna
Amaro highlightsClick Jace Amaro MacArthur, 6-5/237, TE Here to view this Link.
The Texas Tech commit is a big and physical tight end with very soft hands. After missing most of his junior year with an injury, could he push for an even higher ranking this next time around?
D8xvdmav6b2vz2rnwmna
Knight highlightsClick Trevor Knight Reagan, 6-2/190, DQB, 2012 prospect Here to view this Link.
Knight is one of the top dual-threat passers in the state for the 2012 class. He has thrown quite a few interceptions the past two seasons, though, and accuracy could be a question mark.
D8xvdmav6b2vz2rnwmna
Mabry highlightsClick Ashaad Mabry MacArthur, 6-3/295, DT Here to view this Link.
The big Oklahoma State commit stuffs the run well. Can he play the pass better than he showed last weekend against Churchill?


Quick Kicks:
MacArthur enters the game with a 6-1 record while Reagan is 5-1. The passing games will be fun to watch as Amaro is a huge target for MacArthur and Knight has twin brother Connor Knight to throw to.
