    Congrats to Hightower on their first playoff victory 59-17. Also, Coach Shane Hallmark was named Houston Texans Coach of the Week this weeik. He will be invited to an upcoming Texans game.

    Just wanted to complain about my old high school not getting into the playoffs because of the coin flip tiebreaker rule.

    Klein Collins finished in a three-way tie with Westfield and Klein for 3rd place in 13-5A, and despite having the best overall record of the three, the other two got into the playoffs by winning coin flips.

    That's too bad. Could that have been better resolved by breaking the tie on won/loss records against each other, then perhaps a point system on scores?

    Saw that.

    They seemed kinda down this year.

    Maybe that's just cuz they were consistently awesome back when I played against them though.

    I'm not sure.

    We held our destiny in our own hands though. We gave up 10 points to district runner up Klein Forest in the last 43 seconds of the game to lose 20-17. Win that game and we finish an undisputed 3rd place with victories over both #1 and #2.

    Yes, we are playing y'all. I'm not certain we can hang with y'all. I reckon that's why they play the games though.

    Any help with directions to the stadium would be nice. Thanks

    I-10 West to Dairy Ashford, turn left or make a U-turn if possible and turn right next street after Exxon Station at the corner of I-10 and Dairy Ashford. I think you may also be able to enter from Dairy Ashford about a block or two heading south. The stadium is at Stratford High School.

    Congrats on the win. It was obvious who the better team was Saturday. What does "preciously undefeated Pearland" mean? Was that a crack on P-land? Or incorrectly worded?

    Y'all will have your hands full with SA Clark. Good luck. :)

    OMG, my mistake and apologies. I meant "previously!" Thank you for you well wishes. Hightower has a very good team as well as a great group of young men. Since the playoffs began, and all the teams in the mix, week to week, you never know who's coming out with the "W".

    Y'all had the size advantage too. Damn, some of them boys on defense were impressive.

    P-land was very over-matched in the trenches. Our Dline was getting blown off the ball.

    Oh well, hopefully next year will be better. It'll mean even more to me since my son should be on the squad as a Jr. Our O was in dire need of a TE this season, but said my son was still too small.

    I just picked up my bus and game tickets for the trip to Austin. Go Canes! The kids are pumped, confident, but not arrogant and the most humble group I've seen.

    Congrats to Coach Hallmark for being named the Touchdown Club's High School Coach of the Year.

    Hightower made it to the big one. Clark scored on the opening drive in the game and Hightower came back with 28 unanswered points by halftime. It was basically a defensive battle the second half with neither team scoring. The attendance was relatively good in an incredibly huge stadium. State championship will be played on Saturday at Reliant Stadium. Congrats to Katy as well.
