Nederland has been outstanding in the past three, since Dionte Forney became the season's fourth starting quarterback at NHS.

Nothing against Kirby Bellow, Tyler Smith and Adam Atterberry but there's an obvious fondness between Forney and his play-caller, Nederland offensive coordinator Monte Barrow.
"Coach Barrow has always treated me real good ever since my freshman year," Forney said on Wednesday.
Barrow touched on the unique stability that Forney has inserted into Nederland's offense and its team in the past three games.

Forney, Nederland just never gave up

NEDERLAND -- Dionte Forney never gave up, never stopped believing... even though his Nederland Bulldogs were losing.
Dionte never gave up on being a star quarterback, either... even though he was playing defensive end, tight end and wide receiver.
He wore No. 2 because he wanted to emulate Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor. He also liked watching Case Keenum as he competed at quarterback for the University of Houston.
Forney played quarterback in the Nederland 7th and 8th grade farm system with the Central Canines in middle school. He just never stopped thinking he could.
Having started three games at the position, Forney has sufficiently convinced Bulldogs fans everywhere that he's right. He can play quarterback and can play there quite well.... even after dealing with a knee injury for more than half of this season.
Forney is 3-0 as a starting quarterback at Nederland. That was just enough to wiggle the Bulldogs back where they wanted to be -- in the Class 4A Division 1 bidistrict playoffs.
That opportunity arrives Saturday in Conroe's Woodforest Bank Stadium against Crosby at 2 p.m.
Crosby (8-2) will be the host school and will be regarded as the favorite in most state rating services because of Nederland's mediocre 5-5 record. But the Bulldogs have defeated three quality district teams -- Livingston, Vidor and Lumberton with Forney at the NHS throttle.
3-0 really is all you need to write, but there are other reasons to feel encouraged by Dionte. He's thrown eight touchdown passes in those three games. The Bulldogs' offense only has committed one turnover with the 6-5, 240-pound Dionte taking the snaps in the shotgun.
A defensive end as a sophomore in 2008, Forney figured to catch Kirby Bellow's passes based on his 2009 spring work at wide receiver and tight end.
Forney sustained a slightly torn medial collateral ligament at an AAU basketball game in Houston this past July. He would miss the pre-season and the opener at West Orange-Stark. A chop block in the Friendswood game shut down Dionte again.
"When I came back from those injuries, I took quarterback more seriously," Forney explained.
Forney only wishes he could have played quarterback all season. He thinks a different Mid-County team might be 10-0 if he had.
"I had a feeling I wasn't going to get the doctor's release," Forney said, thinking back to his absence from Nederland's first three district games -- LC-M, PN-G and Ozen.

-- Nederland quarterback Dionte Forney, for being offered a scholarship to play quarterback at the University of Texas-El Paso.

Forney had been a defensive end for Nederland but was moved to quarterback because he played the position when he was in middle school. He also said he attracted some interest from Texas A&M University.

Dionte Forney probably will play and play well, but there's no sense in taking the risk of struggling to grip the ball with a large cast on a passing hand. Those have been Nederland's quarterbacks [...]

One week after a lopsided loss without starting quarterback Dionte Forney, the Bulldogs delivered on the ground with a 30-8 win over Goose Creek Memorial at Bulldog Stadium on Friday. Nederland was still without the services of Forney who was injured in a pre-season scrimmage, [...]
