Mineola senior quarterback Jeremiah Crawford has one more game left to play in his illustrious high school career. He put together a huge performance last Friday night to make sure it ended in the state championship game...
Player of the Week
Carthage's defense got stronger and stronger as its Class 4A Division I state semifinal game came to a conclusion.
It held China Spring to five first downs in the second half and zero first downs in the first, second and third overtime periods for a 26-20 victory and a state championship game berth. In turn, there were more than a handful of Bulldogs in contention for the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Defensive Player of the Week honor.
There will be entirely new blood in the Class 3A Division I state championship game for the first time in a long time.
Malakoff prevented Cameron Yoe from reaching a fifth consecutive title game and perhaps a fourth win in the span with a 37-34 overtime victory Friday at Waco ISD Stadium. It took four takeaways and a turnover on downs in extra time to slay the Yoe giant.
It's been a remarkable season for Gilmer junior quarterback Aaron "Poppy" Brown, and the record-setting campaign has at least one more week remaining.
Thanks to another standout performance.
Brown passed for 345 yards and four touchdowns to help Gilmer reach its seventh state semifinal since 2004 by burying Celina, 43-17, last Friday night for the Class 4A Division II, Region II championship...
It's often said that the best players rise to the challenge and deliver in the biggest of moments. That certainly was the case for Carthage's Keaontay Ingram last Friday night.
The Bulldogs junior running back set career highs in carries, yards, and touchdowns to lead Carthage past bitter rival Henderson, 33-31, and into the state quarterfinal round of the playoffs...
Newton fell into real trouble for the first time all season in last week's Class 3A Division II, Region III semifinal playoff game against Elysian Fields.
The Eagles had to dig out of an early 14-0 hole and, to do that, their defense needed to get off the mat and make more than a handful of stops against one of the region's most explosive offenses.
As expected, unbeaten Tenaha rolled over Meridian last week in its Class 2A Division II area around playoff contest.
The Tigers got the game-winning score less than three minutes into the meeting and went on to score 10 more times in their 76-0 victory.
The Winona Wildcats are enjoying their best season in almost 30 years, and the magic continued last week with a 51-12 blowout of Leonard in their Class 3A Division II area playoff.
Senior running back Deundre Wheeler was the biggest star of the night, running for a school-record 340 yards and five touchdowns in the win, which sent Winona (7-5) to the third round of the playoffs for the first time since 1987...
Week 12 of the high school football season was a week of ridiculous tackle counts.
Wills Point linebacker Sloan Rodberg made 29 tackles in a low-scoring, one-touchdown playoff win. Jefferson senior linebacker Tanner Murphy did just a little bit better, 33 takedowns to help the Bulldogs avoid a four-seed versus one-seed upset in the opening round of the postseason.
Murphy, who made 17 of his 33 tackles in open field, is the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Defensive Player of the Week.
John Tyler has a steep history of producing some of college and pro football's most elite players. And now, Lions senior quarterback Bryson Smith has etched his name in the school record books.
Smith's massive performance in JT's wild 50-49 playoff win over Lufkin last week put the signal-caller's name atop the John Tyler all-time rushing list...
