Boys Varsity Football · Roos, Knights set for District 12-6A clash tonight By Felisa Cárdenas | Herald staff writer

Killeen aims to keep building off its early momentum and looks to continue shaking up the District 12-6A race as it hosts Harker Heights tonight.

After a loss at home against Waco Midway to open district, the Kangaroos (2-2, 1-1) evened their record last week with a 48-14 victory at Copperas Cove.

The Kangaroos’ primary weapon is sophomore running back Kadarius Marshall, who has 609 yards and six touchdowns on 71 carries through his first four varsity starts.

Marshall has 263 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries in district competition alone, along with seven receptions for 125 yards and three touchdowns.

Killeen senior D.J. Dormeus leads the team with 14 receptions for 241 yards and a touchdown, while junior Nate Kamper (12-211, 2 touchdowns) is close behind.

Willie McGee is averaging 34 yards per punt, including three that have fallen inside the 20-yard line.

Killeen’s defense is led by seniors with Chris Ingram tallying a team-high 25 tackles, including three for a loss and two sacks, while Talaui Hisatake has 24 tackles.

Kangaroos junior defensive end Amir Ward has 23 tackles, including 12 tackles for loss, and one sack.
