Freshmen White blank RHS 26-0

Thursday night the Freshman White team faced RHS in a non-district matchup at Eagle/Mustang stadium. The Rams took the lead on a powerful hit by LB Jaden de los Reyes that popped the ball loose for safety Kobe Milligan to scoop and score on a long TD. The half would end with the Rams causing a fumble in the Eagle end zone for a safety and a 10-0 lead. After breaking the half the Rams RB DeVante Barrios broke a very long TD on a run up the middle staking the Rams to an 18-0 score. The night was capped off with another TD from Slot Receiver Kobe Milligan. The Rams sealed a 26-0 win with outstanding effort from newcomer Kasey Thomas, DeVante Barrios, Jayden de los Reyes, Jackson Hollebeke, Jadarius Lyday, Kobe Milligan, and Musa Sackor.

Freshmen Green Dominate Garland HS 21-0

Thursday night at 530p the Berkner Green squad faced the Owls. On the first drive of the game QB Daniel Vallejo picked up a dropped handoff and scampered down the field for Berkner’s first TD of the game. In the second half RB Devin Joshua took the first play 89yds and outran the entire Owl defense to put Berkner up 14-0. Joshua would follow up that run with another 50yd dash to add to the lead and seal the game 21-0. Standout players were Daniel Vallejo who added an interception and Devin Joshua with over 150yds rushing.

Freshmen White beat LH 6-0

Thursday night at 7p the Berkner White team played Lake Highlands in an early-season non-district matchup. Berkner Slot Desmond Gentle scored on a run of 50yds to start the game and the 6-0 lead would stand for the duration of the game. Standout defensive players were Jose Miranda, Jayden Hayes, and Jayden De Los Reyes.

Freshman Green drop physical game to Naaman

Thursday the Berkner Green team hosted Naaman in a very physical nightcap. The Rams scored first and took a 7-0 lead with an 88yd TD run by QB Daniel Vallejo. After Naaman countered to tie the score 7-7 Berkner punched their way down the field through the air. On the first play of the next drive Vallejo hit Slot Receiver Kobe Milligan over the middle of the field for the longest pass and reception of the year so far resulting in a first down deep in Naaman territory. A few plays later Vallejo pump-faked a short pass to his left, turned, and hit Receiver Max Bennett on a post for another Berkner TD and a 14-7 lead. The second half would become extremely physical and a single score by Naaman would mark the difference in the game as Berkner lost their first game of the season 22-14.

Berkner Freshman Green Win Opener vs Forney

The Berkner Freshman Green team kicked off the nightcap at 7p with an entire-game effort. After a little early back and forth Forney punched in the game’s first score and took a 7-0 lead on the Rams which lasted to halftime. But the second half would tell a different story. The Rams controlled the ball and used a strong ground game to fight back with the first touchdown of their 2017 season. RB Devin Joshua put the Rams on his back and pounded the middle of the field to put the Rams in scoring position where he completed the drive by punching the ball through the middle of the Forney defense and into the endzone. After a special teams miscue allowing the Jackrabbits to return the kickoff for a touchdown the Rams countered with more time-chewing offense and after driving the field again Slot Receiver Kobe Milligan found the front corner of the endzone for his first touchdown. It was then that the Ram defense would treat their fans to the 2 plays of the game with the first coming on an interception by MLB Brian Jaimes. The Rams offense would reward Jaimes by marching the ball to another Kobe Milligan touchdown and an 18-14 lead. The resilient Jackrabbit squad had time left to counter the Rams but it would be Jaimes stepping up again on the Ram defense by picking-off another pass and giving the Rams the control to end the game. The final score was Berkner 18 Forney 14. Your Green team players of the game were Brian Jaimes on Defense and Kobe Milligan plus Devin Joshua on Offense. Your Berkner freshmen will play host to Naaman Forest on Thursday September 7 at Berkner HS. Kickoffs are set for 530 & 7p. We hope to see you at the Rams 2017 home opener. GO RAMS!!!

The two teams played a close game through the first 2 1/2 quarters highlighted by a Max Bennett 59yd touchdown run. Also of note was the effort made by Xavieran Dews. Dews’ hard running kept the Rams in the game. In the end, the Jackrabbits took advantage of a few Ram miscues and came away with a 22-8 victory. Players of the game on offense were Max Bennett and Xavieran Dews and on defense Jalen Simpson.
