NEDERLAND — “I didn’t know who to go to first,” Tyler Spell said. “I was looking around. I went and hugged my dad, then went and gave my uncle and granddad a high five. My mind was going in a million different directions. Celebrating with the team and my family was great.”
NOTES: The Nederland offensive line will be shuffling again this week. Starting right guard Jacob Brinkley will miss Saturday’s game against Georgetown and will be replaced in the lineup by Logan Albritton, who is returning from a knee injury he suffered during practice before the Dayton game. Chris Henry will start at right tackle for Dannis Latiolais, who is likely done for the year. … Running back Kendrick Hopkins is still dealing with an AC joint separation in his shoulder that he’s had for much of the season. Hopkins aggravated the injury against Pearland Dawson and could have returned to the game, but the coaching staff was worried about ball security and how well he could hold onto the football. He’s on pace to start this week against Georgetown and should see his normal workload. … Nederland lineman Brock Pryor has been invited to play in the National Underclassman All American Bowl on Dec. 22 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
