  1. The one criticism, I have of the Tigers is they have a tendency to play to their “perceived” level of their opponents. If I were Jerry Sanford, I would relive 2019 when a 4th seed traveled to the home stadium of a state ranked team and came home with a win. Stay focused and play like they are playing Ennis.

  2. Thoughts from the game. In the first half, the Tigers should what they are capable. They had 372 total offense and held Whitehouse to 54 yards and 3 first downs at half. I noted a drop in intensity in the second half. I would have like the offense to have a solid drive before the reserves came in. Give credit to Whitehouse, down 48-0 their coaches did not lay down on their quest for a share of the district championship. They won the second half.

  3. As a public service announcement, I am saddened to inform the basketball public that Bill Walton will be color commentator for the North Carolina/Texas game. I have my mute button ready. How I watched three quarters of the Indiana game today. Please ESPN, watch your own programming.

  4. Honestly, I have not seen much of a drop off on production with any of our running backs. We have one RB that has an issue holding on the ball. I suspect he is walking the halls carrying a football as everyone slaps at the ball. It is a testament on the line play that you bring up a jv RB and have an efficient ground game. I am okay if Stewart does not play.

    The result of this game will have no bearing on the playoff spots. A Nac win and they still have to beat Marshall, A Nac loss and they still have to beat Marshall. The Dragons have absolutely nothing to lose in this one. TH now has head to head against everyone and will be the 1 seed for the playoff. 



    Not true.  THS has not locked district title. Loss to Nac and Whitehouse could make THS the #3 seed. This is a must win for the Tigers and hopefully the team views the game as such.

  6. The key to this game will be the Tiger’s OL versus the Dragon’s DL. T-High gained 193 yards with their #3, #4, & #5 running backs against Jacksonville. Not diminishing the effort of the RBs, but the push of the line has been a common denominator in all of our games. Tigers expect to get their #1 RB back for the game. In my opinion, McHenry is the most underrated QB in district. Again much of his success rests with the protection he receives from the OL. He seems to be able to read the defensive coverage and find the open receivers. If all WRs are covered, he makes the wise decision and throws the ball away.

    Pine tree wins. defense played good against the run vs thigh just got worn down and had no answer for #5 in the passing gm. 

    Not sure if I agree with your assessment of Pine Tree’s defense against the run. Texas High had 228 yards rushing in the game. The #1 RB was injured in the second quarter after rushing for 64 yards. The remaining 164 yards were largely gained by a 3rd string and a JV running back. The common factor with all the Texas High running backs is they ran behind an offensive line that dominated the opponent’s defensive line. I agree they did not give up many big plays on the ground, but 7 yard runs were common.  I hope Freeman is available tonight for Pine Tree.

  8. Will be interested to see the outcome of this game from a Texas High standpoint. Hopefully Freeman is recovered in time for the game. Really could not evaluate his backup as the game was out of hand when he entered Pirate offense. He was able to move the offense in the 4th quarter after the THS starters were benched. Pine Tree OL had difficult time with the speed & quickness of the Tiger DL which disrupted their passing attack.
