I’m in the Austin area tying up some loose ends, but will be headed back north to the Metroplex on Thursday in time for the Semifinals. Less than two weeks left in the season and before I go home. I’m excited to get home but its been a great experience and every weekend just gets more intense, the remaining teams are just amazing.
Of the eleven teams I spent time with this season, three are still playing, Throckmorton, Stamford and Cedar Hill. Not bad considering how many good teams there are in this state and how hard it is to advance through each round. I will be in Mineral Wells on Friday night for the Stamford 1A-DI semifinal against the Italy Gladiators. Saturday, I will be heading down to Waco for the 5A-DII semi between Cedar Hill and Austin Westlake. Immediately after the game, I’ll be driving to Abilene for the 6-Man DI Championship between Throckmorton and Abbott. I will not be on time but its the best I can do. I know I’ll be missing the 3A-DI game and a ton of other great games, the toughest thing about the playoffs here is having to choose which game to go see and as long as I have teams I’ve been with I’ll stick with them.
