Berry continuing to emerge as a go-to threat as Eagles look for first district win


ABILENE, Texas - This season hasn't gone the way Abilene High had hoped for. A 1-4 overall record with a 0-1 start to district 3-6A will certainly feel like a big blow.

But as Abilene High searches for answers, it has found a key compliment to the explosiveness of senior Raekwon Millsap.

With Raekwon drawing a lot of attention by opposing teams' defenses, senior Wes Berry has emerged as a weapon from head coach Del Van Cox.

In the three games since the coaches moved him to play just offense, Berry is averaging 11 catches for more than 125 yards per game.

"Sooner or later everybody was going to double team Rae and they're starting to see that, which opens up Wes on the other side," said Coach Cox on Tuesday. "We're able to run our routes with Wes and Rae and put our offense going through both of those guys. He's done a great job. He's a good route runner and a playmaker."

The Eagles hoping those numbers continue to show as they get set to hit the road on Friday, in a must-win game against Fossil Ridge.
