Blackmon helps Plainview in other ways this week
By Jason Kersey
Justin Blackmon, Plainview’s superstar receiver, didn’t catch a touchdown in the team’s 35-21 win over Sulphur yesterday. It was his first game this season to go without a touchdown, but Plainview coach Corey Cole said he was a big distraction to the Sulphur defense.
“They had Robert Thomas trailing him, and usually had two or three guys on him,” Cole said. “He didn’t have any touchdowns, but his presence was known. It opened up some running lanes for us.”
And running right through those lanes was no problem for the Indians.
Plainview running back Logan Russell ran for four touchdowns, and quarterback Brandon Allen ran for over 100 yards and a score.
* With the win, Plainview has conquered its toughest road test of the year. The other top three teams in the district (Purcell, Marlow and Pauls Valley) all must come to Plainview.
Cole wouldn’t say that Sulphur is the team’s biggest hurdle of the year.
“I still think we’ve got some big games coming up,” Cole said. “I think Marlow and Purcell are going to be very tough. One thing I learned from Coach (Jim) Dixon (of Sulphur) is that anything can happen so you have to stay focused.”
