White Oak's offense continues to surge

White Oak's offense continues to surge.

The White Oak Roughnecks  averaged 50 points per game, while being 3-0 in district play, and are riding their wave of success into the playoffs. One of the reasons is because of their prolific offense run by quarterback Heath Hood.
 
"The players around me, they make my job 10 times easier, running backs open up the passing game and the receivers they get open and they make the plays and they go score on them and the line, I have all the protection I need so I give it to everyone else" says Hood.
 
Whether it's through the air or on the ground Hood's impact has been felt this season, but it's also because of players like center Carter Wheat.
 
"Well for the O-line you kind of have to know everybody and what to do because you kind of have to be the quarterback of the O-line so you have to get everybody together and make sure they're on the same page"says Wheat.
 
For Head Coach Kris Iske Heath Hood's performance isn't surprising. 
 
According Coach Iske, "We knew he had the capability of doing what he has done but he had an injury and missed the last half of the season last year and he was playing quarterback and receiver at the same time, and really he's gotten better every week and that's what we want with all our kids to try to improve every week and peak come playoff time."
 
With 62 points against Sabine, and 56 against Hughes Springs these large margins showcase the power of the Roughneck offense, but it's also because of the teams we not me mentality. 
 
"I mean it's just great to see that we're doing our job."
 
This week the Roughnecks take on district rival Jefferson, and there's only one thing on Heath Hood's mind.
 
"One just an undefeated regular season and district championship i believe we'll make the playoffs and see where we go from there."
