September, Friday night, America. It means one thing only... High School football! Thus was the case at Rye High School on September sixth. The tailgate party started at 5:30 with home-town loaded potatoes, add the green chili please! Then at 7pm, your Rye Thunderbolts took the field against rival Crowley County. The “Bolts” had a chip on their collective shoulders, with memories of last year’s 48-0 loss.

The temperature was perfect, with just a hint of fall in the air. There was no wind or moisture to cause any issues. Game on.

Rye got the ball first, and applied their double wing flex-zone blocking scheme. If you arrived ten minutes missed it. The “Bolts” matter-of-factly drove the ball down the field, all rushing, and scored without a hiccup. Senior Bryce Benz did most of the heavy lifting on the drive. The extra point was good for a 7-0 lead. This set the tone for the night on offense.

When Crowley got the ball, they tried rushing up the middle. Robert Buford met the runner with a smack you could hear from the cheap seats. Reminded me of Steve Atwater! On third down, Crowley tried to pass, but Rye got the sac. Crowley went to punt, but the snap went over the punter’s head. Rye’s ball from Crowley’s 15 yard line. Camden Godinez had an interception that was ruled a fumble recovered by Crowley. I didn’t know that the ground could cause a fumble...Oh well, game on! A short time later, Benz had an interception from a tipped pass at mid-field. This set the tone for the defense.

Rye’s offense had a good combination on the ground with Benz, Ryley Prichard, and Kreed Rahl carrying. Rahl was punishing, bolling over or through potential tacklers. You could hear several of his offensive hits from the stands.
