DENTON, Texas — Behind senior Jhett Jones’ standout game, the Brock Eagles earned a 30-19 win over rivals Whitesboro in the UIL 3A DI Region 1 Finals Thursday night.

The win propels the Bearcats (11-2) into the Texas High School Football State semifinals for the fourth time in two years.

“We knew it was going to be a fight,” Jones said after the game. “We beat them by half a meter in the previous game, so we knew they weren’t going to give it away just like that. So we came out just as excited as they were. They started the game hard, we started the game slowly, but in the last two games we obviously developed into a second-half team.”
