The race in 25-6A heats up this week as perennial power Vandegrift takes on Manor, who has been downright sensational in their return to Class 6A football.
Vandegrift bounced back from their season opening loss with three straight wins, including their 41-13 win over Round Rock Stony Point to open district play two weeks ago. QB Brayden Buchanan threw for 245 yards and three touchdowns, while the Vipers defense did their part forcing three turnovers.
Manor had their way with Round Rock McNeil in their district opener two weeks ago with a 45-14 win. RB and USC commit Quinten Joyner had a big night with four touchdowns to lead the Mustangs.
Manor will be athletic enough on both sides of the ball to test Vandegrift, but this Viper squad is great up front on both sides of the ball and they’ve played in big games at this level time and time again. It’ll be tough for Vandegrift to go into Manor and get a win, but Drew Sanders’ squad is built for winning tough games away from home.
