QB Jalen Hurts gets first NFL start

Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts

Channelview star sees First Start, First Win

CHANNELVIEW – Fans and family of star QB Jalen Hurts were thrilled when the local Channelview high school football star replaced the regular Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz in last week’s game against the Green Bay Packers. They were even more excited to learn that Jalen would start the game last weekend against the New Orleans Saints. Jalen went on to lead the Eagles to an upset win over the Saints, 24-21.

Jalen Hurts was a stand-out quarterback who played for the Channelview Falcons under the direction of the head coach, Averion Hurts, his father. In his senior year, he passed for 2,384 yards with 26 touchdown passes, and rushed for 1,391 yards and 25 touchdowns. He was named District 21-6A MVP in his junior year.

These multiple skills, passing and rushing, were evident in the game he played against the Saints, where he completed 17 of 30 passes for 167 yards, and rushed 18 times for 106 yards. In the previous game against the Packers, he replaced Wentz who was benched early, and went on to pass for 109 yards and one TD, thus earning his chance to start in the Saints game. Eagle’s coach Doug Pederson said after the game “Jalen… gave us a spark as a team…”

Humble, TX. – Friday, November 27th at Turner Stadium, after an hour plus delay because of a lightning storm, the North Shore Mustangs galloped away with the 21-6A district championship crown.

The Eastside Boys (Mustangs) and the Atascocita Eagles weathered the storm and went onto the field to play, but then the Eagles got caught in another storm, or more like a tornado. They became the victim of Coach Jon Kay’s whirlwind team that swirled all over the field on offense and defense, winning 63 – 14.

The Eagles made only 9 first downs, while the Mustangs made 27; they made only 174 total offense yards to the Mustangs 718 yards. After making 9 touchdowns (TD’s) in three quarters, Coach Kay rested his starters. The only negative stat for the Eastside Boys was they gave up over 80 yards with 8 penalties.

This game closed out the Mustangs regular season; they’ve remained undefeated in their last 24 games. They don’t have a game this week but will be headed to the playoffs the following week.

Humble, TX. – Thursday, October 29th at Turner Stadium, the North Shore Mustangs easily defeated the Humble ISD Wildcats 55 to 6.

Once again Coach Jon Kay’s Mustangs scored at will against another weak appearing 21-6A district team. His team in only 6 games has racked up 275 points and that’s using his bench a lot. His defense including backup players has only allowed 99 points to be scored on them.

No fault to Coach Kay, he plays the schedule given him, but while these runaway one-sided victories are good for the fans, is it good for the team? Is it possible players will become too over confident and get upset when they’re matched up with an equal powerful team in the playoffs?

Houston, TX – Thursday, November 19, 2020 at the GPISD stadium, the high flying Mustangs took off like a jet, scoring 47 points in the first half. The C. E. King Panthers were helpless until North Shore head coach Jon Kay pulled his starters, allowing the Panthers to end up with 21 points. With this win, they’ve clinched a playoff game in District 21-6A.

Coach Kay is the winningest 6A state championship coach in Texas football history. His teams have won three 6A state championships — in 2015, and the back-to-back repeats in 2018 and 2019. If his high-flying team can keep their foot on the pedal and land in a fourth state championship game this year, they’ll have a chance to be a three-peat reigning state championship team, a 6A Texas high school history-making feat never accomplished before.
