ET has dodged (pardon the pun) a huge bullet, by not having to face SLC in D1. Trinity now faces Fossil Ridge and I hope ET show Fossil Ridge some gratitude for giving them a clear run to the State Championship Game - No SLC, no Longview - both of which were possibilities. ET fans please do not get me wrong, I wish you very success, as I now genuinely believe you can make it to the State Championship game to play North Shore or Westfielda nd bring another State Title back to the DFW Metroplex!!.
D2, however, is clearly the more difficult route and now looks totally different to what was being predicted, with Abilene, Lufkin, Longview, SLC, Katy, Carter to name but a few. 7 of this website’s top 10 teams are in D2. There is no doubt that D2 is the more difficult Championship to win, but there so many possibilities to look forward to. Abilene must be relishing the chance to gain revenge over SLC. The annual Longview-Lufkin match up. Lufkin wanting a rematch against SLC and Longview wanting to meet SLC for the first time. SLC wanting revenge for that single 5a loss against Katy. Let’s not forget the other great teams waiting to play some of the top ranked teams; Plano, Cove, Schertz Clemens and do not forget Smithson Valley lurking in region 4. This is great – bring on the play-offs.
