Hallettsville running back is ready for the Game of the Week

Week two of the 2020 football season is September 4th

HALLETTSVILLE, Texas – The Game of the Week is Friday, September 4th between the Hallettsville Brahmas and the Industrial Cobras. A big factor in Friday’s game will be Hallettsville running back Johnathon Brooks.

Brooks had 142 yards on 16 carries, which averages out to almost nine yards a carry in last Friday’s game. Brooks said he has been working on being a better leader for his team as well as eliminating unnecessary mistakes.

I worked out in the weight room throughout the weekend and the week. I watched a lot of film to see what I did wrong so I can do better this week.

On a more personal note, brooks said it was a fun and unique to play against his cousins who were on the opposite team: Doug and Dalton brooks.

They are my cousins and I’ve played with them since I was five, I’ve played with them my whole life. So it was pretty cool playing against them for my last year of high school.

The Brahmas will be looking for their first win Friday. If they lose, the Brahmas will be 0-2 to start the season.
