I’ve been watching y’all all week trash Cuero. Y’all had no idea what y’all had coming! Go Mean Green!!!! 

Whittington is an absolute stud. Glad he is gonna be a Longhorn.

I stand by what I said.

Understand what you're saying futfan, but it's Arlington to those folks who have never been to Dallas.

I have Been. I just use it as a generic term. Kinda like Cuero in Weat Texas ; )

Cuero has that outstanding individual I se in the wildcat, but PG will probably neutralize him by controlling the clock. 

No secret Hawks are masters at eating up the clock and keeping other teams off the field. Try too hard to stop the run, and Harmon gets you with one of his long TD strikes. 

Gonna be hard for one man to beat PG. Pittsburg gave it a good shot.

Cuero is better than Pittsburg

Here's a few facts. Cuero is not in West Texas; second Whittington may be the first 5-star recruit PG has played. He should be the best individual player the Hawks have faced for sure. He'll be the most dangerous weapon on the field, either team. Catches passes, runs wild from the wildcat, runs kicks back and has 12 interceptions on defense in his career. I suspect they've seen a lot of wing-t and slot-t teams this season. If PG plays its best game the Hawks will win by 2 touchdowns. If they make mistakes, it could be different. I can visualize PG winning four straight state championships.

I figured a team from this district would play for and probably win the title (PG, Gilmer, LE or Pitt)

Next year PG will be the HEAVY favorite to win D2 and probably will.  2020 is still up in the air.

Don't know much about either team other than PG is going for second in a row and Cuero has long tradition.  Both can be a great advantage to have in the quiver.  Grew up in Texarkana so will enjoy seeing the Hawks go for number 2, missed last year's game.  I live not far from Liberty Hill, so have seen the slot-t a lot of times and look forward to seeing how PG's slot-t compares.  Also followed Cuero over the years dating back to late 80s with Robert Strait going beast mode through the playoffs and have kept track of Cuero ever since, although I've only been to two or three of their games since that time.  

Most important to me is hoping for a very competitive game, getting to see two programs I feel a little connection with, and then getting to stick around and see Liberty Hill vs La Vega after this one.  It's going to be a great day.

gobblegobble, you have a lineman who has one of the best names I've ever heard in sports: "Storm Dromgoole".  (His surname is an Irish one I saw on a map of Ireland (with said map showing in what part of the "emerald isle" the families with the surnames tended to live) at the Palmer House in Chicago long ago, at the hotel restaurant.)

And I say that knowing his line competes in linemen competitions.  I've no doubt they'll go all out.  Looks like your qb only threw 4-5 ints in the regular season, so he, too, looks like a wise player.  These are two talented teams who, it appears, will give it their all.  Knowing how the NCAA DII championship game went yesterday (also with the last two, highly talented, teams standing) that means some end-of-the-chair sitting for we spectators.

Texarkana is NE Texas. Longview and Tyler are East Texas as in "the piney woods of East Texas".  In my opinion,  anything West of the DFW area is West Texas. 

Cuero is technically east of fort worth then...

thats to the confusion of northerners calling it west texas

Quit being modest. You knew PG would play for and probably win the title! Lol

This is going to be a great game. Cuero has a couple of stud athletes and PG plays as one. Don’t get me wrong PH has playmakers on both sides of the ball. This will come down to turnovers and this is where I think PG has the advantage.

You guys are so easy...

Cuero will be one of the toughest teams PG beats this year. No doubt, they didn't get here for no reason. PGs defense has grown into itself over the last couple of months and the offense is not turning over the ball like they were at the beginning of the season. Cuero's defense is going to have to be on point to deal with the explosive PG offense. They will run until they feel like they want to throw. They will score either way they want. It might be tough, and they are going to have to play better than they have all year but PG can pull it out.

What's the over/under on PG scoring on the first play in the state game again?

Good luck to both teams!

PG 35

Cuero 17

Texarkana is in the region known as the Ark-La-Tex.

Although the term predates the television era, TV stations based in Shreveport and the one with a base in Texarkana (KTAL Channel 6) pushed this term on those of us living within range of their transmitters.

Tyler-Longview area had only one TV station at first (KLTV Channel 7), but got several more later on and so Shreveport TV lost that power of propaganda over most of East Texas.

I know way too much about Louisiana because of the hours I spent watching their local TV news in my youth.

Good analysis, we've played against some dudes this year but none of them are obviously as good as #3 for Cuero.

1) Dixon from Carthage, 2) Paris has two or three dudes that can fly, 3) Atlanta has 2 RB that can fly, one of them runs 10.9...100m, 4) Carter RB Gladewater, 5) Jimmerson, Griffin & Burns from Pitt (Jimmerson & Griffin run 11.0-11.2...100m),....... 6) Bran Webb RB Gilmer

Jimmerson is especially tough to defend because he runs the ball out of pass formations. Our defense has played against some big time playmakers this year.
