Floydada's twin tenors of "(Jamie) Davis and (Michael) Henderson are both threats at
any time," Pair says. They combine both size (Davis 178 and Henderson 185) with speed.
Henderson ran second in the district track meet 100 meter dash this spring. Blocking for the
pair if 197 fullback Tyrone Henderson, Michael's younger brother.
Pair predicts "both teams will attempt to keep the ball away from the other one" because
each is concerned with the opponents' explosiveness.
’They're so good at what they do," the Hornet mentor says. "You've just got to line up
and try to stop them."
Led by darting runner Cory Sanders, quarterback Ryan Prater and a stable of fleet
receivers, the Hornets have not been exactly anemic on offense. They have outscored
opponents 169-62 through seven games and hold a 2,026-1,079 edge in total offense.
Sanders, who has rushed for 825 yards, is averaging 6.81 steps a carry.
On the stopper side, Kevin Pepper has 115 tackles (45 unassisted), John Brookins is
credited with 73 stops and Robert Rodriquez has an even 50.
Coach Pair expects the Hornets, who came out of the Dimmitt game without a major
injury, to go with the same starters.
