Brook Hill has talent to exploit including transfer QB Griffin

BULLARD, Texas (KETK) - The Brook Hill Guard weren't waiting.

At the strike of midnight Wednesday, they were ready to begin their preparations for the 2018 high school football season.

The TAPPS private school programs are allowed to begin fall camp practices on August 1.  So for the second straight year, the Guard held a midnight madness and began its workout at 12:05 a.m.

Under third year head coach Scott Ryle, Brook Hill has plenty of talent and experience back including five offensive starters and six on defense.  The Guard was decimated by injuries in 2017 and finished a disappointing 3-6.

But that forced Ryle to play some freshmen and sophomores who are now a year older and have a ton of game experience under their belt.

You add transfer quarterback Khalan Griffin, and Brook Hill becomes a team to wrecken with in TAPPS Division 2 District 2.

The dual-threat junior Griffin, who already holds four division one college offers will, however, have to earn the Guard's starting QB job.

He's currently battling fellow junior Mads Hagen Jakobsen, who hails all the way from Denmark, along with a number of other underclassmen.

Watch the video to see the story.

Brook Hill scrimmages Grapeland at home at 6:00 p.m. Friday August 17th.  They open the regular season on the road at Fort Worth Southwest Christian on Saturday September 1 at 7:30 p.m.
