For the second consecutive season, the Waskom Wildcats found themselves in a dogfight in the semifinal round of the playoffs, and in desperate need of a spark.

Enter senior running back Chan Amie.

The talented two-way star rushed for 232 yards and two touchdowns in the Wildcats' 28-24 win over Idalou last Friday night, which vaulted Waskom into its second-straight Class 3A Division II state final.

And for his efforts, Amie is the ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week. He follows last week's winner, Carthage quarterback Jarod Blissett.

Things weren't looking great for Waskom through the first quarter of its Class 3A Division II state semifinals game against Idalou.

The Wildcats failed to recover an opening onside kick and Idalou scored. Then Waskom turned the ball over at Idalou's 1-yard line and the opposition began a 90-yard drive the other way.

The Carthage Bulldogs will be playing for their fifth state championship game appearance this Friday night, and senior quarterback Jarod Blissett is the biggest reason why.

Blissett, the driving force behind Carthage's offense all season long, managed to etch his name atop the school's single-season record book after a dazzling performance in his team's 56-40 quarterfinal win over Silsbee last Friday.

The Dawgs' signal-caller broke his own school record with 435 passing yards and tossed a record-trying six touchdown passes to claim ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week honors. He follows last week's winner, sophomore running back and Carthage teammate Keaontay Ingram.

Carthage's performed very well through most of Friday's Class 4A Division I state quarterfinal game, but at this level of the postseason every mistake has the potential of opening Pandora's box.

The Bulldogs' botched kickoff return immediately after Silsbee clawed back to make it a one-possession game in the fourth quarter could have been the turning point. Senior defensive end Jarrod McLin ensured that it wasn't.

The Carthage Bulldogs shocked the Texas high school football world with a 55-48 upset of defending Class 4A Division I state champion Navasota last Friday night.

And while the contributions came from a variety of players, the X-factor may have been sophomore running back Keaontay Ingram, who helped Carthage rally from a second-half deficit.

Ingram finished the night with 198 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries, earning ETSN.fm + Dairy Queen Offensive Player of the Week honors. He follows last week's winner, Lamon Hillis of Paul Pewitt.

It's a good thing the Wildcats had safety Jason Jinks on their side.

Marshall and Dallas South Oak Cliff spent the early portion of Saturday's Class 5A Division II area round playoff game trying to establish running games.

Chavis Mills and Cameron Haller ultimately clicked for the Mavericks. Of course, they weren't having to go up against defensive tackle Antonio Washington.

You know what made Gilmer unbeatable through its 26-game winning streak entering Friday's Class 4A Division II bi-district tilt with Pleasant Grove? The Buckeyes would hit you with a three-pronged attack -- defense, offense and special teams.

For whatever reason, the defending state champions were mostly playing with one acceptable unit in the middle third of the Hawks' increasingly plausible postseason upset.
