High School Football

Having been in Phoenix playing Senior Softball last week, I missed the football update, so here goes. All four of my Grandkid’s football teams are in the running for the district championships.The Goldthwaite Eagles, ranked 23rd in class 1A, scored 2 big wins, one over Chilton, the early season choice for district champions, by a 54-14 score and Colton had one of the best games of his young football career.

The picture shows him, number 65, against Chilton, dropping back in pass coverage.Then, last Friday night, the Eagles coasted to a 53-0 win over Valley Mills. The first team only played 2-1/2 quarters. This week the 7-1 Eagles, take on Bosqueville in what will be the determining game for the district championship.

Meanwhile, Mikayla’s, middle school Eagles scored an easy win over Valley Mills running their record to 5-1.Sara’s Copperas Cove Bulldawgs scored two big wins, one against Belton 52-26 and last week against Killeen Shoemaker, 31-14. Cove is leading their district with an 8-0 record and a number 7 state, Class 5A, ranking. This week Cove, takes on A&M consolidated out of College Station in what looks like a real good game! Here’s Sara Cheering against Shoemaker.

Finally, Austin’s, San Marcos Diamondbacks, middle school, posted 2 more wins to run their record to 5-2 and play for their district championship this week.
This Friday and Saturday will be busy, 2 big football games, then Brad, Sara and Austin are coming over to hunt deer Saturday morning and after Colton reviews game films, he’ll be over Saturday afternoon. Maybe there will be some good deer pictures!
