Looks like our district is pretty stacked though... DCTF has Rider reaching the state title game as well.
Anyway, read on to see what Guyerís playoff road will look like, as itís basically inevitable that the Wildcats will be the No. 1 seed out of District 5-4A in the Division I bracket.Looking at DCTFís projection for 5-4A, itís hard not to agree with them as Guyer and Byron Nelson would be the Division I representatives, with Guyer getting the No. 1 and Nelson the No. 2 seeds, matching them up with District 6-4A, which is the Saginaw-Fort Worth district, otherwise known as a joke. Guyer would most likely get Saginaw, which Guyer has dominated at both the 4A and 5A level. Can you say ďcakewalk?Ē
The second round would get much tougher, and probably would be the toughest matchup for Guyer until the state semifinal. The Wildcats would be looking at either Aledo or Waco, both really solid programs. Letís go with Aledo for the sake of prognostication. Aledo, like Guyer, is always going to be a good program but without Jonathan Gray and Matt Bishop, itís going to be a drastically different squad. Aledo excels in the trenches but Guyer has the advantage in the skill department. Gray was a once-a-generation player, and now heís gone after four stellar seasons. Give me Guyer.
The third round would take the Wildcats out west where they would likely face El Paso Chapin, 5A dropdown Amarillo or old nemesis Wolfforth Frenship. Letís go with Amarillo. The Sandies should win 3-4A and along with Guyer are one of the biggest 4A schools in the state. Honestly, donít know much about Amarillo except theyíre apparently loaded at the skill positions but so is Guyer, and Iím willing to be Guyer is more loaded. Give me Guyer.
In the fourth round, you are once again looking at most likely an Aledo or Waco matchup, depending on how the bracket shakes out in those districts. See above.
Fifth round is where things get interesting and cross-hairs have to be squarely pointed on East Texas power Tyler John Tyler. Guyerís 4A state title chances have previously been killed in East Texas by Longview before Guyer finally got their revenge on the Lobos in 2010 in the 5A semfinal. Thereís an outside shot Guyer could get Highland Park here, who I think Guyer would smoke. John Tyler is a different story. They went to the semifinals a year ago behind QB Greg Ward, who put up 5,000 total yards and 54 touchdowns a year ago, enough to strike fear into anyone. He also has two great receivers in Fred Ross and Darion Flowers. John Tyler has state championship aspirations and at this point in the playoffs the games are toss-ups. Just for conversationís sake, letís give it to Guyer.
State championship game time. That means a matchup with Cedar Park. The Timberwolves are a 4A powerhouse but have had trouble just getting out of the regional final thanks to their continuous run-ins with district foe Lake Travis, the amazing five-time defending state champs. Now, Lake Travis is in Class 5A and the path for Cedar Park seems clear to a state title berth where Guyer would be waiting. Thatís where the fun begins, folks.
never give up without a fight
