Teams of the Week

TexasFootball.com is proud to partner with the U.S. Army for the Army Strong Team of the Week throughout the Texas high school football season, as well as the Team of the Year award at the end of the season. 

Each week, TexasFootball.com and the U.S. Army join together to select one team from every classification in high school football that demonstrated the qualities exhibited within the Army - those include leadership, commitment to excellence and a desire to make a difference as a member of a team. Each is awarded the Army Strong Team of the Week by local officials from the U.S. Army at a school assembly or pep rally.


ARMY STRONG TEAM OF THE WEEK — WEEK ONE

6A: Edinburg North
After falling behind 19-0 to Los Fresnos in the third quarter, the Cougars clawed back, tying the game before Diego Sanchez’s game-winning 33-yard field goal with eight seconds left to pull off an improbable 22-19 comeback win.

5A: Lancaster
Facing a highly touted Mesquite Poteet squad, the Tigers pounced, holding the Pirates to just 195 total yards while QB Tyrell Alexander racked up 214 total yards and two scores to grab a 33-2 victory.

4A: West Columbia
Trailing 14-9 at halftime, West Columbia rattled off 22 unanswered points and took down Hallettsville, snapping the Brahmas’ 23-game regular season win streak with a 31-20 victory. 

3A: Dublin
Brady Holleman hit Abel Aguilar for a go-ahead 18-yard touchdown pass in the 4th quarter, and Chuy Chacon’s interception ended Hico’s comeback bid as Dublin took home a 23-20 upset victory.

2A: Crawford
Braden Murphy scored on a 25-yard touchdown run in overtime, and Nate Moenning’s extra point gave Crawford a thrilling 42-41 overtime win over Tolar.

1A: Gustine
After a winless 2013 campaign that saw their roster numbers dwindle to the minimum six players, the Tigers proved perseverance pays off with a 51-6 season-opening victory over Morgan.

5A: Clear Lake  
Playing for their playoff lives, the Falcons rallied from down 14 points in the third quarter, using Scott Marshall's game-winning field goal in the final frame to surge to a 24-21 win over Dickinson and a playoff spot.
4A: Carrollton Creekview 
Facing a win-and-in game against North Forney, Creekview used a 20-point fourth quarter -- capped by David Blough's go-ahead 64-yard touchdown pass to Markcus Hardy with 2:57 left -- to clinch its first playoff spot since 2008 with a 33-29 win.
3A: Kilgore  
In one of the games of the year, Kilgore's defense stood tall and Kevrin Justice and JuJu Brown rolled to 229 yards on the ground as the Bulldogs beat top-ranked Gilmer, 34-29, nabbing its first outright district championship since 2008 and handing Gilmer just its second district loss in 12 years.
2A: Kountze   
The Lions took full advantage of an opportunity to snap 2A's second-longest playoff drought, using a balanced offense and a playmaking defense to beat Anahuac, 49-14, and earn its first playoff appearance since 1973.
1A: Stamford 
One of the most highly anticipated games in the state lived up to the hype, but it was Stamford who got the best of Anson as the defending 1A Division I champions soared to a 24-21 win.
6M: Hermleigh
In a must-win game, the Cardinals used a big day from junior SB Zach Digby to eke past Roscoe Highland, 39-38, clinching just their fourth playoff berth in program history.
Best,
