In high school football, experience is everything, especially at the quarterback position.

Over at Nederland the Bulldogs are ranked eighth in the state led by Senior Carson Raines.

Nederland Coach Larry Neumann says Carson brings confidence and experience.

He gets in the huddle now and everyone knows he's been there. He makes really good decisions. Against Vidor last week I was really proud of the way he ran the football. He extended some plays and finished them the way we were hoping he would develop into doing," said Neumann.

In Nederland's 20- 13 win at Vidor Friday night, Raines accounted for all three Bulldog touchdowns. The biggest momentum shifter came right before halftime when he hit Michael Shaw with a 15-yard touchdown to break a scoreless stalemate.

Congratulation s to Carson Raines, our Wendy's 12 Star Athlete of the week.
