Plainview moved the ball at times and for the most part kept Durant in check, as the teams played to a 7-7 tie at the Super Scrimmage.

Durant’s only score came from the defense after a fumble was picked up and returned to the endzone. Plainview scored on a 33-yard run up the right sideline by quarterback Blake Campo.

Plainview coach Chris Berus was excited with his team’s progress after last week’s scrimmage against Millwood in Oklahoma City.

“We are moving in the right direction. We need to shore up our pass protection, protect the ball, but we are making progress.” He said.

In the post game huddle he told his players “we are ready to break through. We need to keep working to be great.”

Quarterbacks had trouble getting time to throw, and he challenged the offensive line to improve in that area.

The line did open holes, as James Bowker ripped off a couple of 20-yard runs. Gary Heller had a 15-yard gain up the middle dragging would-be tacklers, while Cody Looka and Austin Carrera also had some nice runs.
Campo and Taber Jordan handled the quarterbacking duties, and Berus said he is in no hurry to name a starter.

“Both of them are doing well,” he said. Both will likely see some playing time at quarterback in the season opener next Friday. “Eventually one will emerge and we may go in that direction, but for now both will play.”

Campo will be in the backfield at one of the running back spots if not at quarterback.

There were a couple of fumbles, and Berus said that is always a concern in the flexbone option with all the ball handling and fakes that happen on the field.

“It is an Achilles Heel of this offense,” he said, but added that the team has shown improvement in executing it each week and that it should continue to get better.
