Class 3-A: Zack Andress, Jr., Quarterback, Cameron Yoe:
It was the kind of night that makes Texas football so special: a pair of state-ranked top-five teams in a key district match-up with a standing-room-only crowd and a playoff atmosphere. It was the kind of night that Zack Andress loves. The Cameron Yoe quarterback completed a highly-efficient 27 of 34 pass attempts for a lofty 377 yards and five touchdowns and ran for another as the Yoemen hung on to knock Franklin from the unbeaten ranks, 42-38. Although he’s somewhat undersized at 5-9 and 155 pounds, Andress is a mobile dual-threat QB who has now piled up 1,429 passing yards and thrown for 25 TDs. The win left Cameron Yoe at 5-1 (an early loss to 4-A China Spring mars the record) and 2-0 in District 10-3A, Division I. “We’ve made a few adjustments to allow for Zack’s size,” says rookie Head Coach Tommy Brashear, “but it’s the same spread offense that we’ve had so much success with over the years.”

A stellar 3.96 GPA student, Andress plays basketball and is an outstanding outfielder for the baseball team. He’s a member of the Student Council, FCA and the National Honor Society. He also coaches youth football and is active at the Temple Bible Church.

“Zack is really the type of kid you love to have,” says Coach Brashear. “He has grown up wanting to be a quarterback and he’s extremely competitive. He hates to make mistakes. Zack is a good athlete and an even better competitor. He has all of the intangibles and absolutely thrives under pressure. Last Friday was a perfect setting for him.”
