The winner here is obviously on track to win Division 1, District 3 and not have to potentially face Borden County in the first round of the playoffs.
This should be an explosive game that could come down to has the ball last. Knox City is averaging almost 57 points a game, while Crowell averaged 74 points in their two wins, including 90 last weekend against Spur.
Knox City head coach Caleb Callaway says, “we need to be able to control the ball, get first downs, put points on the board, and execute on special team.”
Crowell is a pass-first squad led offensively by senior QB Seth Bearden who threw for 360 yards and seven touchdowns last week. On the other end of the spectrum are the Greyhounds, who will focus their attack on the ground game, led by Tres Frausto and Tyler Delosrios, who lead the team with 11 touchdowns apiece.
With the importance of this game, Crowell head coach Mitchell Parsley says his team is focused on one thing, “we just have to make plays in the open field, play big and just do our job.”
Knox City 76, Crowell 70
Cherokee (5-2) at Richland Springs (5-0) – The Battle of San Saba County used to be a huge game, but the Indians haven’t won since 2000.
Covington (3-3, 1-0) at Blum (2-3, 0-0) – Just about a must-win situation for last year’s state champion, if they want to make the playoffs. An opening game loss would really put them behind the eight ball.
Evant (4-0) at Jonesboro (6-1) – The winner here gets a leg up in district. Also, did you know that BOTH of these communities reside in BOTH Hamilton AND Coryell Counties? Now you do.
