Playoffs Week 3

There are alot of huge third round playoff games out there this weekend.  The Denison Yellow Jackets are one of 16 teams remaining in their bracket.  A win puts them in the elite 8.  I think there's a good chance they'll beat Sulphur Springs, but it's certainly not a given when you're playing teams that have made it this far.

At one point, we thought Sulphur might be the 3rd best team in their district.  Now, they may be one of the best 3 teams in the state.  The Bulldogs are just a win away from the state semifinals.

The Thackerville Wildcats are already in the state semi's.  That's no surprise.  They have dominated everyone they have played.  They'll finally get a test this Friday when they take on Temple.  It would not surprise me one bit if they end up playing for a championship next weekend.

And how about the Pilot Point, Pottsboro, and Callisburg district?  All 3 are still alive after 2 rounds.  If Pottsboro and Callisburg win, they'll play each other next week for a trip to the state semifinals.  Keep your fingers crossed for that rematch.

Lindsay only has 6 seniors on their roster.  Cody Bounds has done a great job getting this team to the 3rd round.  Nobody expected that.  This week, they'll play a team that beat them by 3 touchdowns in the pre-district, so they'll have their hands full.

Celina is still in.  Anyone surprised?  Looks like they've flipped the switch after losing 3 regular season games.  If they beat Pleasant Grove, they're right back in the regional finals.

Good luck to all the local teams this weekend!
