Hanks pulled off one the biggest upsets of the season last week against Ysleta, causing chaos in district D2 1-5A, led by star wide receiver Mykal Blanco who had a huge Friday night.

The junior caught 11 passes for 235 yards and five touchdowns, and also returned the opening kickoff 85-yards for a score in a big 44-20 win over Ysleta.

So far this season, Blanco has caught 71 passes, 1,334 yards, and 15 touchdowns for the Knights who are now 1-3 in district play and have an outside shot at cracking a playoff spot.
