GARLAND — Teams from Sulphur Springs did very well in competitions held Saturday at Lakeview Centennial.
The 7-on-7 team won first overall with the varsity lineman challenge group getting second overall and qualifying for state July 8 in Duncanville.
“Mason Y’Barbo and Beau Carpenter have stepped up and are great leaders for our offensive line,” said Sulphur Springs coach Charlie Coker. “All of our kids have worked hard all off-season and it was easy to tell at the line challenge and at the 7-on-7 in Garland Saturday. We got after it and did real well. I'm proud of them. We have a few events we need to work on before the state meet. We'll be ready.”
In the lineman challenge, Sulphur Springs was third in the bench press with 31 reps.
In the tire flip, the team took fourth with a time of 2:59. “I think we could have done much better in this one. You have to go 10 yards and back, but the entire tire must be over the 10-yard line before you return. Our first three guys, the tire landed about a foot from the line and they had to flip it again. I guess that is how it falls,” Coker said.
In the truck push, the team was third, 19.9; second in the obstacle course, 1:02; first in the sprint relay, 49.3; sixth in the sled push, 1:01; first in the farmer’s walk, 38.6; 12th in the tire pulls, 1:17 and first in the stone stacker, 1:55.9.
Overall the varsity was second in points with the junior varsity team taking ninth place.
“We won the tournament by going 4-0 and beating the host, Lakeview Centennial, 28-24 in the championship,” said Sulphur Springs offensive coordinator Jeff Riordan.

“The score was closer than it should have been. Offensively we could not convert from inside the 5-yard line on four trips, this allowed Lakeview to have the ball with a chance to win, with little time on the clock. Lakeview was driving and Jackson picked off the pass to seal the deal,” Riordan said. “Overall, it was a great tournament. Our kids learned how to compete and win. They went undefeated and won the championship. Offensively, we had wide receivers step up and I think Lee was very good, the best I've seen him. Frazier was unbelievable, he had a great day. McQueen made a lot of plays, including a one-handed grab and he made a lot of plays with defenders all over him. Defense continues to play lights out. Giving up less than 20 points a game is phenomenal in 7-on-7.”
The 7-on-7 team scrimmage Thursday in Gilmer and the June 18 scrimmage at Sulphur Springs. The next tournament is June 20 at Tyler Lee, times to be announced. Tyler Lee is a qualifying tournament for state with the two top teams in the event going to the state finals.
