AUSTIN (KXAN)– Underdog Austin High will take its shot at toppling state power Lake Travis on Friday on Homecoming night for the Cavaliers.

Austin High quarterback Charles Wright has led the Maroons to a 3-0 start to the season– improved by a 57-56 resurgence win versus Bowie 2 weeks earlier. Austin High has scored over 50 points in all 3 contests while the defense has held it own, enabling 2 touchdowns each to Akins and Pflugerville Connally.

Wright, a University of Texas dedicate, is receiving the well-deserved attention, but the Maroons defense need to step up to the difficulty of stopping the Lake Travis offense.

As expected, Lake Travis boasts an elite offending attack with sophomore quarterback Bo Edmundson and an outstanding ground game. The Cavaliers are always unsafe on defense– a calling card for Lake Travis during previous champion runs.

Austin High and Lake Travis kickoff from Cavalier Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
