2019 Texas HS football

Recommended Posts

Here you are in the txk and no comment on PG whipping ass?

Actually in Frisco but grew up in PG. Went to their first round game and plan on going to the game Friday at The Star. They seem to be rolling pretty good. I know nothing about Greenwood but they seem to be pretty good.

Anyone know anything about Katy Taylor? How did a 9-5 team get out of that region?

Anybody know anything about Carthage?

Katy Taylor has put it together the last month.  They have two incredible O-line players in Hayden Connor (hook 'em) and Bryce Foster.  Their 5 losses are a bit deceiving, as these came at the hands of Houston-area powerhouses Katy, Atascocita, Tompkins, Dickinson and Mayde Creek.  Brutal schedule, as those first four teams are arguably the best 6A D1 teams in the area aside from #1 North Shore.

carthage is the LT/Katy/North Shore of 4A.

They is stout.  Always. Word on the street is that there will be no rest any time soon for East Texas foes.  Their Sophs and Freshmen are said to be possibly the best they have ever had, at a school with a long tradition of contending for titles.

If this included "13 starters coming back, 22 lettermen", it would the perfect GIF.

Carthage has the best coaching staff of any HS on Texas. Surratt & Co. get shit done.

My brother just texted me and said that Lampasas WR Jaylon Porter was just on the MNF segment called "You got Mossed" for a TD catch he made against Liberty Hill. I saw the catch yesterday. Thought it was pretty impressive. I didn't see the segment, but man that's gotta be a pretty cool thing to wind up on MNF.

Don’t know if they had anything on it, but Jaxon Smith-Ngiba looked like Randy Moss on his first TD against Allen a couple of weeks ago.  Spectacular.

I am thinking about possibly flying to Houston to get to see this one. It's been 33 years since the last and only other state semi-final appearance in school history in 1986.

They played it about a 100 times during the game I went to a couple of weeks ago.  Wife and I were singing it all the way home.  That is one catchy little song.  

 I'm a Badger is a modified version of I'm a Jayhawk. I loved hearing it as a kid. Been a long time since I last heard it. Good memories though. 

The drumline has this really good cadence that they would play when I was in school. I believe they still play the whole thing and it's good. It's the only non-HBCU or inner city high school cadence I have ever liked.

Lampasas is playing Carthage in New Caney Tx,

2.5 hours from Carthage, 3.5 from Lampasas. Lampasas wanted to play in McLane in Waco but Carthage said no. Stadium in New Caney only seats 8000, Lampasas had over 6,000 against Liberty Hill yesterday. Not bad for a town of 10,000. First time since 87 they made the state semifinal.

 

I can understand why Carthage would not want to play there. The whole town would show up. I think Lampasas has a little less than 8000 residents, but that does not include Kempner residents in the East end of Lampasas County. 

I can say this. I still vividly remember the 93 run when they filled up the home side of Bobcat Stadium in San Marcos with locals and people who wanted to see a team throwing the ball around the yard. A Permian fan showed up to the game. I was a freshman who suited up for that huge 94 upset win against LBJ and the whole town came to Temple. They will travel to Houston and I would not be shocked if school is cancelled. They absolutely love football there and they love what Troy Rogers has done. They may not win against this juggernaut from Carthage, who is the gold standard for winning in Texas, but it will not be because of lack of support.

So (Austin) Westlake is going to play (Katy) Taylor

And your making the decision on where to play this game....so you get a map of Texas out and look at it......and you decide on McLane Stadium in (Waco)

WTF??

There's just not an obvious intermediate neutral choice.  Kyle Field is just a bit over an  hour from  Katy (advantage Taylor), and the San Antonio stadiums are just over an hour from Westlake (advantage Westlake, especially with Westlake having just played two playoff games in San Antonio).  My guess is that they each decided that Waco would give neither team that much of an advantage.   It's an hour closer to Westlake, but still enough of a pain to slog through Austin and Williamson County to keep the just mildly curious from the fan base from making the trip.   Also, the drive from Katy to Waco is pretty straightforward heading up to 290 over to  Hempstead and then to Waco on 6.

There were a ton of fans there on Saturday from Burnet, Marble Falls, Gatesville, etc.  All sitting on the Lampasas side.

Don't jinx the run. Stay home and watch online. ;)

Carthage is legit.  Their OLine is huge.  We'll see how they move and their stamina.  QB is big 6'4 guy.  Defense is big and fast.  Lampasas will look small in comparison.  But so did Liberty Hill last season.  Have to just come out and outsmart and out-execute them.  Whitehead is good on the run.  I think we'll see a lot of designed roll-outs.  All those Go routes Lampasas has been running lately may not work as well vs. Carthage.  I think we'll see more complex routes this week.

I do not wish to jinx them...lol. 

I also remember LBJ's offensive line outweighing the front seven for the Badgers in 94. We won that 20-14 by stopping a Statue of Liberty play on 3rd down inside the 20. Troy Rogers seems to be a younger version of Rod Hess from what I gather. That was his head coach. Hess was innovative in throwing the ball 30 years ago. 

I have seen two Carthage title teams in person in 2008 and 2010. They are absolutely intimidating to see in-person. The size for high school athletes is ridiculous. Lampasas has speed from what I have been told and this is not a typical David-Goliath match-up. I would love to see this if I can make it from Manhattan.
