The Football Files


An article ran this week in Abilene about Brad Mills, one of our young men at church. He was player of the week for the second round of the playoffs for our greater region. This follows his honor as player of the week for the Ft.Worth Star-Telegram earlier in the year. Not too surprising...he has been doing it all year. He started the game off last Friday with a 74 yard touchdown run...and he just ran from there. :-) He is a great guy...and we are proud of him. Blessings,


Stephenville running back takes Player of the Week
Monday, November 24, 2008

Brad Mills, RB, Sr., Stephenville -- Revenge is a dish which is best served through a punishing ground game.
And in Stephenville's 31-6 romp over Wichita Falls Rider on Saturday, running back Brad Mills was the Yellow Jackets' weapon of choice.
Avenging two straight season-ending losses to the Raiders, Stephenville returned the favor in back of 204 yards rushing and two scores from Mills.
Stephenville now advances to face El Paso Parkland at 1 p.m. Saturday at at Odessa's Ratliff Stadium.
"He was a huge factor," first-year Stephenville coach Joseph Gillespie said. "Then again, he's been a huge factor in a lot of our games."
Mills scored on runs of 74 and 6 yards, but had a 60-yard touchdown run called back because of a penalty.
He also caught two passes for 25 yards while Stephenville rolled up 435 yards in total offense.
"He's a heckuva football player, but Brad Mills will be first one to give credit where credit is due, and that's up front," Gillespie said. "It was a big night for Brad because of his athleticism but also because of the offensive line."


P.S. Speaking of Abilene. I understand that we are getting in to basketball season, but what is it with the basketball score at the ACU football playoff game last weekend(?) -- they beat West Texas A & M 93-68. That is absolutely crazy! Go ACU.
