Longhorn commits rule Labor Day

9/6/2011

ARLINGTON, Texas -- It's hard to look at a 63-0 victory as being misleading.

But DeSoto's (Texas) victory over Oklahoma City Frederick Douglass at the Kirk Herbstreit National Kickoff Classic on Monday appeared to be.

The Eagles, which include Texas commitments Bryson Echols and Curtis Riser, were overwhelmingly dominant in the third of four games at Cowboys Stadium.

Echols, the No. 6 defensive back and No. 79 prospect overall in 2012 by ESPNU, helped DeSoto's defense hold Douglass, the defending Class 4A Oklahoma state champions with seven returning offensive starters, to 50 yards total on 52 plays.
