At 6’5, Tipton is a mismatch for most defensive backs, he has a large catch radius with sticky hands and he is a red zone threat due to his skill to win on the 50/50 contested grabs. Although Tipton didn’t have a monster night statistically, he paid dividends within the Cowboys offense with his blocking from his receiver position, using his lean frame to work on the outside to spring big runs.

Love, a San Diego State commit, plays with a physical nature, he has a stunning punch at engagement and has a nastiness to his game that can’t be coached. At 6’4 315 pounds, Devin has clean, deliberate footwork, he has extended length in his arms that allows him to keep defenders under control and his ability to bend well at that hip enables him to use excellent leverage to move the crowd. Love and Fasusi ignited the Lewisville ground game in the second half, that saw Ellison have a breakout game behind Devin’s physical play upfront.
