Lee QB dazzles in high school debut

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - So, that went well.

It was just one game, but it's one that Zach Hall will never forget.

"I expected us to win, but I did not dream, well, I did dream about it," said Hall. "But I never thought it would be a reality."

But it did.

Just a sophomore, Hall did it all on Friday night.

"It was the best I've ever seen, it was amazing," said Lee receiver Diondre Allen.

"It was awesome! It was just amazing," said fellow receiver Bryce Wilkerson.

"He was beast. He just stepped up," said  Marquiston Williams.

In a big way.

Hall racked up 6 touchdowns (4 passing/2 rushing) in his first ever high school game, a 55-20 win over Sulphur Springs.

He accounted for more than 400 total yards of offense, passing for 288 yards and rushing for 124 yards.

"He is just a freak of nature," said Allen. "He came out of the freshman squad and I gave him a little pep talk. I told him 'just do your best and play football.'"

"God gave me the ability to make big plays and I made them," said Hall.

More than a few.

Their 55 points, the most a Red Raiders team has scored, since 2008.

"It was fun to do that, to score 55 points, we almost scored more than we did all last season," said Wilkerson, who had three TD catches. "We wanted to throw the ball and we did. We just made big plays."

The Red Raiders were once an East Texas power.

After one game, their new man under center, may just be the way back to prominence.

"That was the first win to open a season since 2007," said Allen. "We just have to keep building on that."

"I am not getting over myself or get overwhelmed by it," said Hall. "It was a great performance, but Lufkin is now my focus."

The Red Raiders (1-0) face Lufkin (1-0) in our Red Zone Game of the Week this Friday at Rose Stadium.

Lufkin knocked off John Tyler in the openind week.
