How Granbury wins the game – The Pirates simply need to do what got them to their eight wins, make things happen when they have the ball. Granbury’s offense, with the exception of last week, has been one of the most productive in the Metroplex, largely because of quarterback Ryan Suitt. But the Pirates have a variety of other reasons they are enjoying their best season in nearly five decades, including return specialist and defensive back Kevin Hennard, a host of wide receivers led by Nick Doughty, and the preseason addition of running back Malik Allen has been huge.
