ARLINGTON – On the first night of UIL State Championship action, Borden County used a high-powered rushing attack to run past Josesboro for a 60-12 win and the state title.
Borden got out of the gates early with a seven play, 65-yard touchdown drive that ended with Hunter Jones finding Braxton Coor for the first score of the game.
Jonesboro followed that with a Robert Robuck touchdown run just over three minutes later, but that’s when the ground game really got going for Borden, who rattled off two straight touchdowns.
Robuck and Jonesboro would answer back again, but it would be the last time the Eagles would taste the endzone as they faced a stifling Borden County defense.
Borden County would score five more times on the way to their third state title. Quarterback Hunter Jones got it done on the ground with 152 rushing yards to go with his 88 through the air and three touchdowns..
Corbin Sumners, who finished with 135 rushing yards and four touchdowns, won Offensive MVP, while Jones took home the Defensive MVP award.
