2007 Team Insider Port Arthur Memorial Titans

David Whitmore is commited to Nebraska

It is a tough district with several teams pushing for a playoff spot and one of the key ones with the best chance is Port Arthur Memorial's Titans. Coach Ronnie Thompson leads his team once again into the season.

OVERVIEW: Finished last season 6-5, return 21 lettermen and 11 starters. The offense finished 3rd overall last year and the defense finished next to last.

OFFENSE: Harry Brown and Jarrell Alexander are the prime candidates at the quarterback spot. Brown passed for 414 yards ib 22 of 35 passes. Patterson Clay returns at running back after rushing for 200 yards on 34 carries, look for big things out of him this year. Freddie King is the star on offense and is back after catching 46 passes for 747 yards and 8 touchdowns. Hard for him to top the season but he should do even better. Glenn Windon is also back after catching 18 passes for 293 yards and three touchdowns, Patterson Clay had 10 catches for 103 yards. On the line seniors Kevin Thomas (275) and Reginald Broussard (270) lead the way.

DEFENSE: The defense has to improve this season for Port Arthur to get into the playoffs again. Finishing dead last against the run is not the right recipe for a playoff run. On the line junior Raderman Scypion (230) holds down an end spot with Colby Bonton (190) grabbing the other spot. At linebacker Tonzel Eckford (175) is back but junior Cody Hebert (185) should also be in the mix. The secondary will be led by Richard Wycoff (190) and the very talented David Whitmore (190) also. Terry Coleman and Decoven Gorrer are also in the mix in the secondary.

OVERALL: This team will do some serious damage passing the ball but the defense needs to grow up quick. Scoring battles are a coin toss as to who the advantage is to, if the defense can gel early then the Titans will be back in the playoffs. If not then it is going to be a battle for a playoff spot.
