Lots of playoff games to pick from. 10 of the 11 teams I’ve been with are in the playoffs, so I want to hit as many as I can each week. I will be heading to the Gulf the day after tomorrow to catch La Marque open the 3A D-2 playoffs against Furr HS on Thursday. Then it back to the Metroplex for the 4A-D1 matchup between Aledo vs. Cleburne Friday night in Mansfield. Finally on Saturday I will travel with Cedar Hill to Waco where they’ll meet Copperas Cove in the 5A-D2 opener.
Best of luck as well to Abilene, playing El Paso Montwood , Harlingen hosting McAllen Memorial, Port Lavaca Calhoun vs. Floresville, Carthage playing Palestine and Throckmorton vs. Rotan. Both Idalou and Stamford have byes. Hopefully you’ll all keep playing long enough for me to get the chance to see you.
Sunday morning, I’m flying home for the first time since coming to Texas in July. I’m very excited to get back, see my family and sleep in my bed for the first time in months. My wife has been very supportive of this project, but it’s a hard slog and as much as I love what I’m doing it will be great to get home.
I’ll get back to Texas on Thanksgiving Day, in time for the 2nd round playoff games.
