Throughout February, Dave Campbell’s Texas Football managing editor Greg Tepper is taking a look back at the 2016 Texas high school football season in each region of the state. For a detailed explanation of the regional breakdowns as well as the rankings methodology, read this piece.

Big Country

Today: The Super Centex region.

Like the Big Country, the Super Centex area comprises a large, rather indistinct swatch of the state covering some 15,000 square miles. The major landmarks here are Waco and the Bryan/College Station area, with all points inbetween.

Here is a map of how we are defining “the Super Centex.”

Now that we’ve set the boundaries, let’s break down the best of high school football in the Super Centex region in 2016.
