Well, Houston and Hinton spoke again this past weekend after Houston led Scioto to an opening night win. Houston rushed for 93 yards and three touchdowns in the first half on Friday night before watching as mostly back-ups took over in the second half of Scioto’s 48-21 victory over Canal Winchester.
