I can't believe this is the final week of the regular season, time sure passes by quickly, but then again I have not been practicing in the hot sun since August. So here are the games for this week and my picks:
Copperas Cove @ Harker Heights: COVE, the Dawgs have already secured the #1 Seed in DII playoffs from Distirct 12 and they want to claim the outright District Championship that has eluded them the past few years. I know Heights will put their best effort forward in an attempt to stop the Dawgs, but I see the Dawgs as being very focused on winning this game. Dawgs win 34-21.
Ellison VS Shoemaker: SHOEMAKER, I thought the Wolves would win this game easily but after their performance agaisnt Cove last Friday I don't think it will be a cake walk for them. However they do the ability to play better than demonstated in their last outing. But Ellison showed they also have the potential to win in their game against Temple. I still think the Wolves will win this game 14-7. Not my pick for game of the week but a close second.
AMC @ Belton: AMC, the #1 seed from our district in the Division I playoffs is at stake, the winner of this game gets to face Mesquite the loser gets to face De Soto in the Bi-District playoffs. Great rewards for the victor. I see AMC winning 28-21. This is my pick for GOTW.
Bryan @ Temple: TEMPLE, the Cats are already in the playoffs and will face Longview. Bryan seems to be playing far below what was expected of this, Temple wins this game 35-14.
Its been fun watching and posting with the fans from District 12 5a, if your team is not in the playoffs stay on and support those 4 teams that are representing the district.
