Catching Plays: Andrus Splits Defense


Written by: Keith "Grizz" Crear | SFL Photographer/Sports Blogger


When it comes to football in Texas, football is EVERYTHING. Its life, its our culture, its our bloodline. We, EAT, SLEEP, and BREATHE football. So when it comes to the gridiron, it is especially exciting in the high school arena. From freshman status to senior year, players live the gridiron life all day everyday. 

On the Northside of Houston in Spring TX, there are a few schools who are HUGE rivals and pride on making highlight reels of each other.  It doesn’t surprise me when I hear of senior athletes making plays such as catching 50 yard passes between 2 towering defenders, or a running back breaking the tackles of offensive linemen built like grizzly bears hyped up on energy drinks or a Tight-end executing spin move of all spin moves thats John Madden worthy, (Boom). 

So I like it when I read and am able to report stories such as the one of Spring High senior wide receiver, Kamron Andrus (3) who split two Nimitz defenders, Ashaad Curry (42) and Marsavius Hopkins (22) on a running play during their District 16-6A matchup at Leonard George Stadium on Oct. 4, 2018.  

Watching young athletes take their game to the next level from high school is amazing. Being able to follow as they take their skills to college and play ball is like grandma putting that cake batter in the oven on a Sunday afternoon after church and waiting for the oven bell to ding.
