The three touchdowns were a career-high for Jenkins, who rushed for 72 yards. It was Jenkins’ third multiple touchdown game of the season, with two touchdowns apiece against Arlington and Waco Midway, respectively.

Cedar Hill finished the regular season at 6-4, 5-2 and overcame a halftime deficit for the second time this season. The Longhorns trailed Waxahachie, 7-0, at halftime last month but won 14-10.

Cedar Hill will open the 2021 UIL Class 6A Division II Playoffs next weekend against Bryan. Last season, the Longhorns defeated the Vikings, 27-0, in both teams’ playoff opener at Longhorn Stadium.

The Longhorns scored 13 unanswered points in the second half, and junior quarterback Cedric Harden Jr. had nine carries for 45 yards. Senior running back Robert Richardson had seven carries for 50 yards.
