Bishop Dunne Looks To Stay Hot vs. C.E. Byrd

null

Bishop Dunne and its high-powered defense will make the trek to Shreveport, La., for the second time in as many weeks, looking to build on the momentum of a huge road win at Evangel last week. Their opponent, C.E. Byrd will be tasked with keeping the city of Shreveport from going o-fer against the Dallas Catholic school.

Who: Bishop Dunne (TX) vs. C.E. Byrd (LA)

Where: Independence Bowl, Shreveport, LA

When: Saturday, Sept. 8 at 7 PM CT

Watch: LIVE on FloFootball

The journey back to the levels of success that C.E. Byrd enjoyed under head coach Mike Suggs from 2010-’15 appeared to be underway in the team’s season-opening victory over Calvary Baptist Academy last week.

The Yellow Jackets hammered the Cavaliers, jumping out to a 28-8 halftime advantage and cruising to a 35-8 victory.

On the heels of a disappointing 6-5 season, Bishop Dunne roared out of the gates last week, going on the road to earn a big time victory against perennial Louisiana power Evangel Christian.

Head coach Michael Johnson’s offense did more than enough against Evangel’s typically punishing defense, providing the cushion needed for an Eagles defense led by four-star prospects Brian Williams and Brennon Scott.

The odds of Bishop Dunne duplicating that performance, both Saturday and for the duration of the season, would seem to be good to quite-good.

Williams, Scott Headline One Of TAPPS’ Best Defenses

Brian Williams, the younger brother of former Arkansas star running back Rawleigh Williams, has long since been considered one of the nation’s top 2020 safeties. He spent significant time ranked atop all ’20 Texas prospects and patrols the secondary with instinct and athleticism rarely seen at this level.

Linebacker Brennon Scott is a monster. That’s probably the easiest way to sum it up. At 6-2, 220 pounds, Scott plays with a disruptive explosiveness and just generally wreaks havoc on an offense. Both Scott and Williams are committed to Texas A&M.

This will very likely be the best defense Byrd will see this season.

Prospects to Watch

Brian Williams, S, Bishop Dunne — 4-star, committed to Texas A&M

Brennon Scott, LB, Bishop Dunne — 4-star, committed to Texas A&M

Elijah Yelverton, TE, Bishop Dunne — 3-star, uncommitted
