Highlights

West Orange-Stark could compete at any level – It’s not exactly a secret that the bigger schools often have some of the best talent, or are simply better teams than smaller schools. This is not the case with West Orange-Stark. They could compete with any team at any level in Texas.

Reclaiming lost glory – It had been seven years since Celina had been to a state title game. Their 2015 appearance was uneventful. This year, the Bobcats will look to finally make it to 9 state titles after seven long years without one.

Can Argyle get over the hump? – In 2014, Argyle lost to Navasota in double overtime. In 2015, Argyle lost by two points to Waco La Vega. This year, their mind is set on one thing and one thing only: finishing the season. Argyle has the capability to bulldoze people, but needs to close it out in the game that matters the most.
