Knights drop finale


In the last regular-season action on the gridiron for the Faith Academy Knights, Nathan Figueroa hit Kaleb Shepherd for a touchdown on the opening drive although those six points served as the only ones on the Knights’ side of the scoreboard.

Baytown Christian, in turn, took the 60-6 win to claim the No. 1 seed from their district as well as a bye through the area round where the Bulldogs will wait to face the winner between Summit Christian and Longview Trinity.

Faith Academy picked up three wins on the season, one in district play, and took third place overall in District 9-1A to just miss out on a postseason berth the season after going winless.

The Knights were well-represented all year by Kaleb Shepherd, Dustin Rogers, Nathan Figueroa, Jacob Henderson, Neil Johnston, Caden Swierkowski, Logan Matuska, Roy Shepherd, Blaze Byler and Maury Cano.
