“Anytime you can play with that amount of pain and that kind of injury,” Walsh said of Marve, “it speaks measures for your courage for your team. It's really special to have a guy who can play through an injury like that.”

WALSH KEEPING AN EYE ON GUYER

Walsh has two big games to worry about — his in the Heart of the Dallas Bowl, and the Texas Class 4A state title game, where his dad, John Walsh, is the coach at Denton Guyer.

A former Guyer star himself, J.W. admits to being a little anxious in watching Guyer's latest playoff run from afar.

Guyer defeated Tyler-John Tyler 57-53 last week to advance to the finals against undefeated Georgetown on Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. J.W., along with OSU receiver Josh Stewart, led Guyer to the 5A Division II finals in 2010, falling 24-21 to Cibolo-Steele. Guyer has never won a state title.

“When I was playing for him, we got close to winning a state championship, and it hurt,” J.W. said. “What I think would be even more special than winning that one is actually seeing my dad be able to win one.

“With how long he's been coaching, he deserves one. I think this year might be the chance.”

 

RECRUIT ROSS SHINES DOWN STRETCH

While John Tyler's season ended against Guyer, it was still a good playoff run for future Cowboy Fred Ross.

A 6-foot-1, 200-pound receiver committed to OSU, Ross thrived in the postseason. Against Guyer, he had 132 receiving yards and a touchdown on 10 receptions. A week earlier, Ross had 13 catches for 172 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-24 win over Frisco Centennial to advance to the semifinals.

Ross, the Cowboys' highest rated prospect in the 2013 class, was primarily recruited by Doug Meacham, so the departure of offensive coordinator Todd Monken is not expected to impact his commitment.
