Quinn Ewers, QB, Southlake Carroll
Last season, the dominate Duncanville Panthers had their way with the Southlake Carroll Dragons on their way to a 51-7 victory, which is still the only lose on coach Riley Dodges near perfect record.
This year, however, sophomore quarterback Quinn Ewers has a chance to avenge the loss.
In three playoff games, he has 1,044 yards and 14 touchdowns.
It will be key for Ewers to take care of the ball as much as possible to keep the high-powered Panthers’ offense off the field.
Trace Bruckler, WR, Frisco Lone Star
Last weekend was a coming-out party for junior receiver Trace Bruckler as he dominated the Highland Park secondary on the way to a 33-27 overtime win.
Bruckler caught a school playoff record 14 passes for 183 yards, and his teammate Marlin Mims saw multiple double teams throughout most of the game as he has for a majority of the season.
The Lone Star offense has a chance to do something special if he can stay hot.
Bo Hogeboom, QB, Argyle
Bo Hogeboom has been on fire this year for the Argyle Eagles, and this week is one they have been looking forward too since being eliminated by Waco La Vega in last year’s playoffs.
Hogeboom has thrown for 846 yards and 12 touchdowns this postseason.
Earlier this season, he threw for 238 yards and four touchdowns as they defeated La Vega in Waco.
With a second consecutive state championship on the line for La Vega and a trophy to add to a great legacy for this Eagles’ senior class, this could be the best game on this weekend’s slate.
