2020-21 East Texas 5A Sports Thread


Recommended Posts

Well, Lufkin has 3 or 4 options to play a replacement team, either a 5A or 6A opponent in place of Nacogdoches. Probably will lose our home game and need to meet half way to play the game on that Friday night , Oct 2nd.  Coach Quick said he will announce opponent next Tuesday or Wednesday.

Well "those" you spoke with really weren't paying very close attention then. While it wasn't a large score disparity it wasn't really that close of a call especially statistically.  Marshall

Someone from Whitehouse complaining about class and sportsmanship... That's irony. Sports or not.

Why be a douche about it?  Nac doesn’t pick their district.  They compete where they are put... and they dominate.  just say congrats and move on.  Don’t see the point in trying to lessen thei

7 day into the big Q and we have not had anymore reported cases from players or coaches. Hoping this will be the only one, or at least we are able to trace exposure and not Q the whole team!!

 

Hoping we are back at it for Tyler High on Oct 9th. 

 

Hopefully the four people that tested positive are doing ok now.

It’s my understanding that the positives are all recovered and had very mild symptoms for a day or two just waiting out the Q period.

Longview vs. Temple- Longview

Lufkin Vs. Tyler Legacy- I wouldn't be shocked to see Lee....ummm Legacy win this game.  I'm picking LP because they have been better than the Raiders for sooooo long.  Raiders have made progress.... but I don't think they are at LP's level....yet.  

Texas High Vs. Tyler- Going to take Texarkana.... but you just can't count Joh.....ummmm Tyler High out.  Neither winning would shock me..... but I'm taking the Tigers because of sheer numbers of returning players.  JT needs a QB and their defense will be tested against the Tigers.

New Caney Vs. Marshall-  New Caney is replacing a lot on offense.... AND they have a new coach.  Toss in the long drive to Marshall.... and I like the Mavs.  Like I said in the Marshall thead.... all comes down to QB play for the Mavs IMHO.  

Princeton Vs. Pine Tree-  This one could be a very HIGH SCORING game as both teams have a history of prolific offenses and porous defenses.  Someone could end up scoring 45 in this game and still losing.  I'm going to take PT in a shoot-out.  Game might take 5 hours to play lmao.

Cleburne Vs. Hallsville-  Toss up game, really.  But Hallsville has a new coach, new systems.... and from what I've heard a numbers problem headed into the season.  I'm taking Cleburne.  Bobcats have to dig themselves out of a pretty deep hole right now IMHO.  

Whitehouse Vs. Forney-  Forney was pretty awful last season, going (2-8).  WH is having to replace their entire offense, including their QB, 2 of their top rushers, and most of their WR corps.  Not to mention a Wildcat defense that gave up bushels of points.  Sounds like Forney is just what the doctor ordered.  WH wins comfortably. 

Jacksonville Vs. Crandall-  The Pirates are coming off a (10-3) season, while Jax is still looking for the peices to become a contender in the district.  This is going to be a tough one for the Indians IMHO.  Defense wlll be their downfall in this one.  Crandall wins.

Wylie East Mount Pleasant- This is a tough one to call.  This was a 24-21 MP win last season.... as the Raiders went (2-8).  MP went (5-5), but their success was Vs. the bottom half of the district.  They lost to all the playoff teams by large margins.  Going to take MP for the minor upset as Wylie is a 5A Division I school.

Sulphur Springs Vs. Frisco Wakeland-  Frisco Wakeland showed they can and will give up big plays on defense as Marshall had no less than 7 plays of 30 yards or more against them last Friday in a scrimmage.  If SS can capitalize on that.... I like the WIldcats.  But the game being in Frisco makes it tough to call.  Wakeland in a close one.

Nacogdoches-  The Dragons fall to COVID-19.  

MP won last year over Wylie East 41-24, also, maybe they did win over the bottom half, but all but 1 of those was picked over MP

More like Longvew-Marshall-Hallsville. 

Not many Hallsville natives on their roster I’m willing to bet.

Huntsville vs. Nederland cancelled due to Covid.  Huntsville apparently inquiring to add Boerne Champion as a replacement.  Also a 5A-II school near San Antonio whose game was cancelled.  Hopefully they can make it happen.  

Update: Boerne found a game closer to home.  Huntsville still looking

They get all of East Longview. Lot of nice subdivisions out there that would otherwise be zoned to Longview. 

We're talking about at least an 800 student boost for LHS.

They dont get everyone though, I know some folks zoned to Hallsville that still send their kids to LHS cause its much closer.

Places like Hallsville and Whitehouse roach off surrounding cities, its crazy. Whitehouse has buses coming all the way up to Shiloh Rd in Tyler. Insane.

Most of whitehouse lindale and chapel hills kids comes from Tyler, and some kids from Tyler go to van and Winona.

Well I mean, I give Chapel Hill the benefit of the doubt since they have a Tyler address anyway.

Whitehouse a whole seperate city.

Where does Lindale's lines dip into Tyler?

Hallsville is a whole seperate city too.

But like Hallsville, Whitehouse district lines come into Tyler. They aren't that far from Robert E. Lee.   Chapel Hill lines come into Tyler as well.    Lindale...hmmm kinda, but I wouldn't say Tyler is losing kids to Lindale.  The Charters and Privates hurt TISD the most.

Well..... I went (8-2) on my picks for East Texas 5A.  

Only missed Longview and Lufkin, both of which were beaten in shocking fashion IMHO.  Never would have predicted either. 

Ill post week 2 games later today for discussion.

Longview Vs. Marshall-  Hope springs eternal.  Mavs in a barnburner.

Tyler Vs. Tyler Legacy-   TL may have shocked East Texas last week..... but they aren't sneaking up on anyone again in 2020.  I saw JT struggle with Texarkana on Thursday.... so I'm taking TL....but I think it'll be closer than either game was last week.  Raiders in a close battle.

Denison Vs. Texas High- This has the potential of being a good game.  Denison is coming off of a dominating performance of their rivals from Sherman.  The Tigers made easy work of Tyler.  Texarkana's O/D lines are BEAST.  The biggest question for them appears to be the QB....which was done by committee last week.  Texarkana pulls away in the second half for the win.

Pine Tree Vs. Crandall-  PT beat Princeton handily 55-30.  The Pirates scoring 55 shocked no one.  They may have the best offense in Eat Texas this season.  Giving up 30 to them might be a little more disturbing if you're a PT fan.  Crandall struggled with Jacksonville last week, but won.  This could be another high-scoring affair.  I'll take the Pirates.  

Mt. Pleasant Vs. Sherman-  The Tigers completely dominated Wylie East Friday while Sherman fell to Denison.  It looks like MP has found an explosive offense and an improved defense in 2020.  I'll take MP in a comfortable win.

Whitehouse Vs. Royse City- Whitehouse made easy work of a weak Forney team last week, while RC exploded for 55 points against a weak Centennial team.  Looks like RC's offense is picking up where it left off last year.... WH is still looking to replace most of their offense from 2019.  I'll take RC.

Cleburne Vs. Jacksonville-  Cleburne made easy work of Hallsville last week, dropping 42 points on the Bobcats, while Jacksonville hung tough Vs. Crandall.  It's hard to get a win in the historic Tomato Bowl...... this game could be a barnburner.  Wouldn't be shocked if either won.... but I'm taking Cleburne because it seems their offense may be more on track than Jacksonville's.

Hallsville Vs. Frisco Memorial (Saturday)-  I said in my first week's picks that I think Hallsville has a DEEP hole to dig out of..... last week proved that with a 42-26 loss to Cleburne.  Meanwhile Memorial lost to Justin Northwest 21-20.  This may be the Bobcat's biggest chance at a win this season..... tough one to call simply because I know so little about Memorial.  But Hallsville seems to looking for an identity.  I'll take Frisco.

Good luck this week!
