THE WOODLANDS, Texas — After falling behind by double digits early Thursday night, the New Caney Eagles needed a spark.Midway through the first quarter with his trailing Conroe Oak Ridge 14-0, senior defensive back C.J. Blocker delivered the spark the Eagles were looking for.Blocker, a Utah commit, caught an Oak Ridge kickoff deep in his own end zone, sprinted upfield, weaved between a line of defenders and scored on a 100-yard touchdown return to put New Caney on the board.Blocker's special teams touchdown ignited an Eagles rally that led to a 35-21 comeback win over Oak Ridge in their District 13-6A Texas high school football matchup Thursday at Woodforest Bank Stadium.
