Last week's TXHSFB results were a mixed bag, but the Other Guy saw a few state title contenders in Houston. Meanwhile, A&M keeps finding ways to win, the Coogs produce an absolute dud, and Mason Fine makes a bigger name for himself.
The Chieftains are rolling with some big district games ahead against Littlefield, Muleshoe and Shallowater. Coach Arias told us why this team has been hot, why the district is so tough and what the playoffs would mean to Friona. We apologize for the technical difficulties at the beginning of the interview.
How do you live up to the expectations as a first-year head coach for a team that was a state runner-up the year before? Starting 6-0 doesn't hurt, but the tough games are still ahead for the Mustangs. It sounds like they and their new head coach are ready.
Regardless of how Texas and Oklahoma are playing as they enter the Cotton Bowl, the game always seems to go a little haywire, with a few exceptions. Way talks about one such game, Barry Switzer smoking a cigarette on the sideline, and an action-packed Week 7 in the high school ranks.
It's a huge week of games in Central Texas, from Lake Travis vs. Westlake to Liberty Hill vs. La Vega to Cedar Ridge vs. Stony Point. We previewed those games and more with Central Texas' foremost high school football authority, Thomas Jones.

The Lions are off to a roaring start as a new program, and just knocked off Frisco Wakeland to keep the momentum going. Coach Cole, our 5A iCoach Inspirational Coach of the Week, joined us to talk about building a program from scratch, leadership with a lack of experience, and who his kids will root for when Reedy plays Lone Star in a few weeks.
