While they are vital the real key to championships is the offense and defense lines. I believe the two teams left in Region 3 are our best at that position. The reason we haven’t gotten over the hump against the other regions is they have us beat at line play. Region 3 has arguably the best athletes in any region. Whichever team prevails Friday has a line that can compete against the others this year. And whichever team controls the line Friday and wins the turnover battle will come out victorious. I agree on the line play being the issue in years past. I haven't been able to see any East Texas teams this year. Last year prior to the semi-final I think I recall reading that the SA line was big and dominant, or words to that effect. When I watched them against Refugio in the semi-final game, they were big, but for the most part they looked overweight and slow, so Refugio just wore them out. Has that changed this year? If so, they should have a good shot. Will also need to play some disciplined football. Refugio of years past seemed to be undisciplined and got a lot of penalties, usually 3-4 personal fouls each game among others. They have cleaned it up and this is no longer the case. They aren't setting themselves back with these ridiculous penalties. If SA/Groveton winner can do the same, they have a shot. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
