What they’re saying: “Our defense has been really good to us. They picked up the slack… We’ve got to get physical on offense and put it together all at once,” Lobo offensive lineman Kenny Higgins.
Intangibles: The Lehman defense played lights out in last week’s 16-7 loss to Boerne Champion, but the Lobos will face an even bigger test in the Mules, who had no problem handing Champion a 24-0 spanking two weeks ago. Alamo Heights hasn’t lost since the first week of the season and has put up an average of 29 points per game since then. The Lobos know they can’t keep relying on the defense alone to keep them in games. It will take another heroic running performance by Lehman’s Paul Brown and more consistent play from the quarterback position for the Lobos to have a fighting chance against a strong District 27-4A opponent.
Hays Free Press prediction: Alamo Heights 24, Lehman 7
