Lake Hamilton Wins Again

The 4th Annual Shootout of the South was completed Saturday June 14, 2008. A huge thunderstorm flooded Mighty BlueBird Fields Friday night forcing the tournament hosts to modify the tournament play from a unique "modified guaranteed two-game" format to a single elimination tourney.

As expected after the results of pool play, Allen TX fought their way to the championship game to face one of pool play's disappointments, Lake Hamilton. After a poor showing on Friday, the Wolves returned to their winning ways and won the Shootout in a nailbiter (38-37). The Shootout win marks the 2nd consecutive tournament win for Lake Hamilton after they took home the Sonic Air Raid title last Saturday.

Allen TX's Steven Terrell was a highly touted defensive back coming into the Shootout, and he didn't disappoint. Terrell took home the Defensive MVP.

Josh Proffit of Lake Hamilton showed outstanding ability as a wide receiver. He took home the MVP trophy for Receivers.

Finally, the Top Gun (QB) award was captured by the Allen TX field general, Matt Brown. He was very impressive as he called the plays on the field with no in-game input from the coaches. This approach is dictated by Texas UIL rules, but also makes for a very fast pace on the offensive side of the ball.
