HOUSTON - At Cypress Woods High School, scoring in bunches is all the rage. So much so, the offense has a new nickname.

"People have nicknamed us the circus," said quarterback Colton Huntsman. "I mean it’s a show, it’s a show on turf and it’s a blast, I love it."

The two-year starter and Air Force commit has mastered the complex misdirection offense.

"He understands it as well as we do," said Wildcats head coach David Jones. "Maybe, at times, better than we do."

Huntsman has racked up over 3,000 total yards at what has seemed like a rapid pace.

"He makes decisions fast, he sees things fast, he understands where the ball needs to go," said Jones. "God blessed him with a lot of talent."

"I think I have grown as a leader, a passer and just being able to understand defenses and defenses structures," said Huntsman.

His play shows it.

Behind Colton, the Wildcats are averaging 49 points per game in the playoffs.

"It was a lot to take in, this year I feel like I have learned a lot more and know it a lot better, but it’s not an easy offense to understand," said Huntsman.

Memorial will try, but the Circus doesn’t want to fold up anytime soon.

"I guess it can be nicknamed a lot worse," said Jones. "We score points and that gives us a chance to win football games so they can call it whatever they want I guess."

"I don’t think anyone can stop our offense," added Huntsman. "I think we can stop our offense."
