Defense, late fumble seals district title for No. 1 Ryan (Denton RC)
By Steve Gamel Contributing Writer
No words were necessary, though. In the biggest game of the season thus far for the defending Class 5A Division I champions — and in perhaps the most clutch way possible — Hill let his play on the field do the talking for him.
With 2:03 left and No. 5 Frisco Lone Star driving at the Ryan 17-yard line with only a field goal needed to steal the win, Hill sliced through the Rangers’ front and stripped the ball from running back Ashton Jeanty. Ryan recovered, sealing an eventual 7-6 win and a gritty blue-collar defensive performance at The Ford Center at The Star.
