Chaparral football players Antonio Thomas and William Hernandez Thursday, July 26, 2012.

Antonio Thomas had roughly 250 yards of total offense and three touchdowns, helping the Chaparral High football team erase a 12-point, fourth-quarter deficit with eight minutes to play and beat visiting Sierra Vista, 28-25.

“Our kids didn’t quit. They didn’t lay down,” Chaparral coach Bill Froman said.

Chaparral, which won just one game last year, closed with 15 unanswered points on touchdowns from Thomas and his cousin, Tyquan Anderson.

Thomas’ biggest play came on a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

“It was a great comeback, but it was still sloppy,” Froman said. “We are going to get better each week.”

But, at least for one night, Chaparral will cherish the victory. It’s still August, and they have already equaled their win total from last year.

“We’ll enjoy it tonight and get back at it first thing tomorrow,” the coach said.
