  1. Rivercrest clinches a playoff spot after scoring 20 unanswered in a 27-14 win over Boles. Rivercest scored 14 points in the last 4 minutes of the first half to lead 21-14 at halftime. Rivercest will host Wolfe City next week to decide who finishes 3rd and 4th in 2A-1 District 9. Boles finishes 6th in district and with host District Champions Cooper next week. Boles had possession down 7 until a 39 yard INT return by Rivercrest So. LB Jaquan Brown set up 1st and Goal from the Boles 5 with 2:42 left. Then Rivercrest's Sr. RB Zane Dees scored on a 8 yard QB Keeper from the Wildcat with 2:03 left to seal the victory. The game could have been more out of reach earlier but the Boles defense forced 3 turnovers inside their own 25 including 2 interceptions in their own endzone in the second half to keep them in the game. Rivercrest Sr. QB Chase Duffer completed 38.9 percent of his passes for 194 yards 2 Td(62, 95 yards) and 2 ints. Jr. WR Connor Young had 2 Receptions for 104 yards and a TD. Boles was lead by Sr. RB/QB/FS Gabriel Drennan(24 carries for 161 yards and 1 TD, 1 defensive INT),Sr WR/CB Wyatt Staggs(1 INT, 1 34 yard reception), Sr LB/C Caleb Miller(2 TFL, 4 Solo, 11 total Tackles) & and JR. WR/SS Johnathan Cruthird(21 yard TD Reception, 3 solos). No other runner for Boles ended the game with positive yards due to Rivercests run defense and Boles' dropped shotgun snaps, handoffs, etc. Boles started the game with a turnover on Downs at their own 32 with 8:46 left in the 1st after a fumbled snap on a punt attempt. Rivercest could only gain 3 yards on 2 runs and 2 incomplete passes after a Boles offsides on 1st down. The turnover on downs gave Boles possession at their own 24 with 7:21 left in the first. Drennan then had all 76 yards on the ensuing drive with runs of 3, 3, & 67 before scoring on a 3 yard Td run with 5:12 left in the 1st to put Boles up 7-0. On the following drive Boles' defense forced a 3rd and 12 before Rivercest So. WR Mark Grider got Drennan turned around on a slant-and-go and outran him for a 62 yard Td on a pass from Duffer to tie the game a 7 with 3:49 left in the 1st. Boles then Drove 73 yards to go up 14-7 with 9:21 left in 2nd. On the drive Boles Jr. QB Kole Lively was 4-4 passing for 71 yards, completing passes of 34, 7, 9 before connecting with Cruthird for a 21 yard Td pass on 3rd and 13. Lively was 0-6 passing with 1 Ints the rest of the game. Rivercrest converted a 4th and 4 from their own 46 with a 9 yard completion from Duffer to Young to start their next drive. Rivercest then turned the ball over on downs at the Boles 39 with 5:58 left in the half when Grider dropped a pass from Duffer on 4th and 4. Rivercest's defense then forced a 3 and out regaining possession at their own 27 with 4:26 left in the half following a Boles punt. This was the turning point in the game. Rivercrest had 2 runs of 73 and 20 by Dees called back for holding followed by an unsportsmanlike penalty on Rivercest to start the following drive and set up 2nd and 32 from their own 5 yard line. On the next play Duffer caught Cruthird looking in the Backfield and connected with Young at the 35 yard line as he ran by him on his way to 95 yard Td to tie the game at 14 with 3:37 left in the 1st half. Boles then picked up a first down in Rivercrest territory after 2 runs by Drennan. Boles then faced a 4th and 7 from the Rivercrest 45 with 1:11 left after a run and 2 incomplete passes. Boles decided to punt and it was returned for a 80 yard TD by Rivercrest So. WR/DB Connor Herring to put Rivercrest up 21-14 with 49 seconds left in the half. Boles ran twice to run the clock out on the half. Rivercrest went the Wilcat to start the second half with long runs by Dees setting up 1st and 10 from the Boles 20 before Duffer came back in. Duffer completed a 15 yard pass to Herring on 3rd and 7 setting up 1st and goal from the 1. Boles defense stopped Dees on a run up the middle on 1st. Rivercrest faced 3rd and goal from the 15 after a fumbled handoff on 2nd and a false start. Drennan then intercepted a Duffer pass intended for Herring in the endzone and returned it to the Boles 20 with 5:27 left in the 3rd. Boles came out with Drennan running the Wildcat and had a first down at midfield after a 29 yard run by Drennan. Boles though lost 5 yards on their next 3 runs and they punted to the Rivercrest 26 with 1:51 left in the 3rd. Rivercrest started their drive off horribly losing 17 yards on a bad snap, but Dees gained 25 yards on a Wildcat keeper the next play to end the 3rd quarter. Rivercrest passed for a first down to start the 4th before Boles forced a punt that was downed at the Boles 20 with 10:18 left in the 4th. Lively completed a pass to Staggs for a first down but Boles was penalized for an illegal man downfield. Drennan then run for 6 yards on 3rd and 12. Boles went for on 4th down but Drennan's pass was dropped, Turning the ball over on downs at the Boles 24 with 7:56 left in the game. Boles defense then forced a 4th and 8 from their own 22. On 4th down, Staggs undercut a Duffer pass intended for Grider inside the 5 and returned to the Boles 19 with 6:23 left. Staggs who was 2A TSWA All-State second team DB last year with 11 Interceptions now has 5 or 6 this year. The second Interception of Duffer kept Boles in the game, but they could only gain 1 first down before Browns interception and return along with Dees Td run put the game out of reach.
  2. Pigskin Prep has Dekalb favored by 8, while Calpreps has Hooks favored 24-22 even though they have Dekalb rated a little higher. Should be a good game.
  3. I don't know how the teams match up scheme wise, but I have to go with Centerville just based on comparing schedules. CC hasn't played any team as good as Crawford, Mart, or Jefferson.
  4. Not juggernauts but they should win in Bi-district vs whoever is R10 and T10 between Brookshire Royal, Sealy, and Columbia. Region 3 is very Deep in 4A-2. I would say the only teams in the region better than Jasper and HF are Bellville, Silsbee, Cuero, and probably Waco Connally. Bellville will probably blowout WOS in round 1.
  5. WOS plays in one of the toughest District in 4A-2. They would be undeafted in some districts. The top 3 teams in D9 are top 15-20 in the division. WOS is still a top 25-30 team. Yes it is a down year, but they are still a good team.
  6. District 9 is the Deepest. Just look at the Pigskin ratings. West Rusk, Grand Saline, and Edgewood are really good. F9 Troup would only be a 7 point underdog to W10 Dekalb.
  7. Wolfe City at Honey Grove moved to Thursday at 7 pm. JH and JV canceled.
  8. As a smaller Lineman that reiled on technique and footwork, I hated the mud. A lot of Mud would turn the game into a brawl since no one has good footing. The rain is fine, mud on horrible grass fields sucks. It already rained this week, plus there it is has chance to rain all day Friday and into Saturday morning. Chance for Thunderstorms also which would delay or postpone games.
  9. Definitely amazing finish to the game. Probably a lot of coaches that still have their kids watch the game tape. Shows how it is never to late to make a comeback and to keep playing hard. 4 straight Plano East Tds with 3 straight successful onside kicks in a little over 2 minutes game time. Then the game winning Kick return TD for John Tyler with less than 30 seconds left.
  10. People are referring to this post about CC being the only ? for Timpson.
  11. For me it's always the nailbitters, upsets, or come from behind wins or losses that I remember, along with District Champship clinching Victories and Games that made school History. Also, all the area round defeats when i went thought Boles was pretty good after winning the District Championship, especially with the undeafted top ranked teams in 07 and 09 that averaged 30+ MOV. I also remember watching great atheletes like Stamford's James Washington, Cayuga's Traylon Shead, Boles' Joe Gilliard, Quinlan Ford's Kaiden Roden. In 99, I Remember Boles nearly upsetting Wortham in week 9. Then winning thrillers vs Mildred and Mount Enterprise in the next two weeks to earn Boles' first UIL playoff berth and Victory just a few years into moving from Tapps-6 man to Tapps 11-man to UIL 11-man. I remember Boles being 3 TD underdogs vs Wolfe City in '03 and being down 12-0 at the half before Winning 26-25 to stay undeafted in district. We went on to lose 41-6 in consecutive weeks to Celeste in the District Championship and Harleton in the playoffs, but atleast we were back in the playoffs after 3 down years in a row. I remember Boles' 07 1A-D1 Area round loss to the "Maud Squad"(3 Lineman committed to TCU) after beating them in non-district and controlling the first half. I think it was Boles 21-7 at Half and then Boles' Gilliard returned the 2nd half opening kickoff for a TD but there was a block in the back 40 yards behind the play just before he crossed into the endzone. Maud's defense then stopped Boles at the Goal Line and drove all the way down the field to score. In 07, Boles had averaged nearly 420 rushing yards/game on 11.5 yards/rush and didn't really face any adversity all year. The team was shell-shocked when things starting going against them and momentum had totally swung to Maud and they scored 35 unawsered to win 42-21 taking advantage of a few more Boles turnovers along the way. Maud went on to beat Cayuga and Tenaha before losing to Bremond in the state semi-finals. In 08 I remember Gilliard breaking his Wrist in a non-district win over Simms Bowie and So. QB/DB Wallace and So. RB/DL Sutton stepping up to lead the team to their second of three in-a-row 10-0 regular seasons. Gilliard returned for the 1A-D1 playoffs and to lead the team to the State semi-finals for the only time in school History. Gilliard, while wearing a cast, rushed for 11 TDs and had 559 yards of offense and 2 Defensive Ints in the 3 playoff wins including scoring 34 of the 44 Boles points in a regional Victory over Collinsville alot playoff game vs Collinsville which i remember pretty well. Seymour. Semi-final game vs Canadian, who had Won the 2A-D2 Champship in 07 before dropping to 1A, was supposed to be a shootout, but the whole Boles team and fanbase was dejected after Gilliard broke his ankle making a tackle on Canadian's first drive. Boles still had its Thunder in So. All-State RB Sutton but couldn't keep up without their Lightning and best DB in Gilliard. Canadians Spread offense was unstoppable in a 68-27 Dominating win. The 27 points Boles scored was the most Canadian gave up all year even with losing to D2 Champ Stratford in district play. Yes both the D1 and the D2 Champ game from the same District that year after both dropped from 2A, because the highest enrollment playoff team from each District was placed D1 playoffs and other 2 went D2. In 2009 as Jr's, Wallace and Sutton lead Boles to their 3rd straight 10-0 regular season. Boles was ranked #1 in the state and looked to be on another collision course with Canadian. The Week 10 game versus WC for the District Championship is very rememberable because Wallace hurt his knee and was hobbling around on one leg, but he gutted it out while Sutton put the team on his back carried the team to victory. I didn't even go to the 1st round playoff game Vs 5-5 Collinsville because it was supposed to be a blowout. Collinsville was up 28-0 after the 1st quarter and went on to win 56-21. Collinsville then beat DeLeon before losing to Haskell in the D1 Quarters.
  12. I think Sunnyvale would find a way to beat Van and/or Rusk in District 8 and would compete with LE for 3rd in D7. Caddo vs Pittsburg would be a good battle. Ford vs Pittsburg would have a chance to be a really good smash mouth game like last year.
  13. Districts 7-11 are definitely the deepest districts. Districts 5 & 6 teams will have there hands full in the Area round. District 6 has 2 of the worst teams in 4A-D2, but the top 2 are both top 20 to 30, while Ford and Lincoln are both average teams or better. District 16 is by far the worst district. Districts 1, and 14 are also worse than 6. Districts 2, 3, 4, 12, & 15 are about on par with 6. District 5 is deeper than 6 but the top 4 teams in each district are pretty equal. Sunnyvale is just as good as Aubrey, barely losing to them in week 1. Sunnyvale definitely looked like best team in District 6 when I saw them play Ford. Ford controlled most of the game vs Caddo, but Caddo scored its only TD in the 4th quarter to win by an missed Ford XP. Caddo is undeafted but Sv has had a harder Schedule.
  14. http://calpreps.com/2022/ratings/Texas_division.htm#2A-1 Cooper has alot of Talent. To me their resume is better than CC and right there with all the other top teams in Region 3. Collinsville probably wins their very tough district in 1A-D2 over Santo, Muenster, and Celeste. 3A Hooks will battle Dekalb for the District Champship. 3A Grand Saline upset Edgewood and nearly beat West Rusk. Their 36-8 win over Honey Grove was very impressive too.
  15. Surprising score. Clarksville can be tough when they play at their best. I really wish Boles was still in this District. Too bad they had 4 kids too many. Rivercrest is the only other school in the D1 district with under a 213 enrollment versus Boles 168. Boles could have won the D2 district but you have to play with the hand you are dealt. Hopefully Boles moves back down next realignment to give a better chance to compete for all their talented Fr. And So.
  16. District 5 Week 7 Scores Aubrey 35 VA 14 Gv 20 Fv 7 Sanger 35 Krum 28 Bp Bye Week 8 Scores Aubrey 47 Krum 19 VA 53 Fv 10 Gv 36 Bp 19 Sanger Bye Week 9 Scores Aubrey 56 Sanger 14 VA 38 Bp 13 Krum 35 Fv 0 Gv Bye Standings Aubrey 7-2(5-0) Van Alstyne 5-4(4-1) Gainesville 3-5(3-1) Sanger 5-3(1-3) Bridgeport 4-4(1-3) Krum 2-6 (1-3) Farmersville 2-6 (0-4) Aubrey has clinched the D5 championship. VA has secured a top 3 finish. Gainesville has beaten both Sanger and Bp, and needs a win over either VA or Krum to secure at top 3 place. Of the 1-3 teams, Bridgeport still has to play both Sanger and Krum and Sanger beat Krum 35-28.
  17. District 9 should finish 1. Cooper, 2. Honey Grove, 3. Wolfe City 4. Rivercrest/AG District 10. 1. Beckville 2. Frankston 3. Harleton 4. Hawkins/Big Sandy Beckville, Cooper, HG should advance to second round. WC vs Frankston a toss-up. WC probably wins if their QB is back by then.
  18. Ford has rushed for 450-500 yards and had 2 RBs with over 140 yards in all 3 of their wins but only 215-290 in their 5 losses. Against Lincoln, Ford ran for 496 yards and 8 TD and was 4-7 passing for 88 yards. Ford Jr RB Zalen Morales had 29 carries for 240 yards and 5 TD's, while Ford Jr RB Dylan Seabolt had 19 carries for 145 yards and 3 TD'S. Morales leads the team in Rushing and Receiving. He has 179 carries for 1112 yards and 13 TD'S and 8 Receptions for 263 yards and 3 Tds. Seabolt is second in rushing with 65 carries for 548 yards and 6 Tds in 7 games. Jr RB JJ Jorzig has 97 carries for 502 yards and 2 Tds. Morales has 1 game with 399 all purpose yards, 2 games with 220+ yards rushing, and 4 of 8 with 140+ yards rushing. Seabolt has 2 games with 140+ rushing yards, while Jorzig has 1.
  19. District 6 Week 9 Scores Sunnyvale 45 Wills Point 0 Caddo 57 Roosevelt 6 Quinlan Ford 59 Lincoln 58 Ford had a 43-42 lead with 3 minutes left after being down 35-16 early. Both teams scored 16 points each in the last 3 minutes. Standings Sunnyvale 5-3(3-0) Caddo 8-0(3-0) Ford 3-5(1-2) Lincoln 2-6(1-2) Wills Point 1-7(1-2) Roosevelt 0-8(0-3)
  20. Congrats to WC on a hard fought Victory. Game was very close until the start of the 4th. WC's free play to score with no time left before half and their 2pt INT return were big momentum swings in the game. It was all down hill for Boles after their 5-10 yard punt to start the 4th quarter. Game would have also have not been as close if Boles didn't score 12 points after recovering WC fumbles. Boles is talented this year but have had way to many penalties and mistakes to overcome.
  21. Week 9 Finals Cooper 36 HG 8 WC 34 Boles 18 AG 20 CP 12 Rivercrest bye Cooper will be District Champions. Honey Grove 2nd If they beat WC next week. WC clinched a playoff spot with their 3rd District win. Has HG and Rivercrest the last 2 weeks to decide seeding. Rivercrest clinches a playoff spot with a win over Boles or WC the next 2 weeks. AG having to come from behind to beat CP is surprising. They still have a shot at the playoffs if Rivercrest losses next 2. AG would most likely win three way tie at 2-4 in that scenario. Boles' blowout loss to AG puts them out of the playoffs along with CP.
