  1. Independence 45 T-High 30 Congrats to the Knights. Texas High played tough the first half. Independence’s QB hurt the Tigers with his legs. Several times he made big plays on 4th downs. Tigers did a good job controlling the the Knights passing attack, only to have Braxton make plays with his legs. Congrats to the Tigers on a nice season. Study hard in class as your education is the greatest asset you have for your future. By the way, Independence had a decent following.
  2. I did and I never posted on the thread, so not sure how I mocked you as you claimed. I personally don’t care for individuals attributing untruths about me. As to the “conspiracy”, at least three posters appear to have interpreted what you said as saying “TISD was going to do anything to be 5A Div 2.” As a CEO, I am sure you understand how one’s choice of words can be damaging. Good day.
  3. Refresh your memory on what you said and still awaiting a retraction on attributing something I never did.
  4. 1. Not what you said in your post. 2. Yes, one can take what you said was a conspiracy by the aforementioned “hired help”.
  5. I think WM fan base was so small was because they appeared to bring a “pep band” (appeared to be 25 -30 in band), that did not march. I hope for the game atmosphere, Independence brings a crowd.
  6. Suspect you are correct, but a friendly reminder from accommodating hosts.
  7. Message to Frisco fans. Not sure how well you will travel. But if you are expecting a large contingent, might consider parking at high school and taking the bus to the game. It is a convenient service TISD provides.
  8. Independence has a 9-2 record with one loss by forfeit, so on the field 10-1. One true loss was to #1 Frisco Lone Star 63-14. They appear to have a good dual threat QB who has passed for 3054 and run for 626. So it appears the first key is getting “controlled pressure” on him. They have gained 2549 rushing with the top rusher (Orr) has 838 yards. Top receiver (Wafer) has 1228 yards. They appear to have a potent offense and an average defense. Texas High should be able to score, but the key is whether the defense can make some stops.
  9. It all started prior to the LSU game....claiming to be DBU. Injuries aside, they play soft. Only saw Jake Smith once.
  10. Was my thoughts. Looked like he had equal rights to ball.
  11. Thanks, did not make the trip. It sounded like both teams played hard. Lufkin needs to keep its head high. If we move down in classification, hopefully the powers can schedule a pre-district series.
  12. Region 2 of 5A Div 1 is the only Region with two teams from each district advancing to the area round.
  13. Honestly, I could care less about the Raccoons winning as long as the Knights lose.
  14. I sense bad blood between Lufkin and John Tyler, but I could be mistaken.
  15. Since Independence won Thursday, they made arrangements with the winner of the Texas High/Lufkin game. Team knew if they won, the game would be in Texarkana. I think this is the first playoff game (any classification) since Grim was remodeled.
  16. Boy, I guess THS should apologize for messing up everyone’s party last night. Was I surprised? Yes. Did I think the Tigers would get donkey stomped? No. For the JT fans, at the end of district I firmly believe the Tigers were the 3rd best team and JT was the 5th or 6th best team (with Sherman 4th). We entered the season without a quarterback. The coaches convinced Cellers (a pitcher) to convert from wide receiver. When he was not eligible, his legs and Webster (wr) were taken out out the game plan. Opposing teams only had to stop Cooper. The last 4 games the team has progressed each week and i
  17. First half was a defensive battle. 3rd quarter was offensive battle with 35 points scored. Nothing in the 4th quarter until Tigers scored with 43 seconds left. Tigers stop Lufkin in 2nd OT.
