Frisco is home to the Frisco Roughriders, The Star, the Texas Legends and major companies.
It is also home to more shopping and restaurants than any area I’ve seen across the country, and the region of Collin County is one of the fastest growing communities in the nation.
As a result, Frisco has experienced a massive explosion in population and taken an approach to public education that keeps schools small enough for a great student experience. Inside the city limits, Frisco is home to 10 Class 5A high schools.
Area overloaded with standout teams, players
Five schools participate in District 5-5A, Division I and the other five compete in District 7-5A, Division II.
Both districts can arguably go down as two of the state’s best featuring No. 1 Frisco Lone Star, No. 7 Frisco, No. 9 The Colony and Denton Braswell, No. 15 Frisco Independence, No. 18 Denison and finally No. 20 Lovejoy, according to MaxPreps.com.
Lone Star is led by Stanford commit Marvin Mims, who is an electric receiver with sophomore quarterback Garret Rangel tossing him the ball. He has accounted for 2,500 passing yards and 28 touchdowns.
With these types of numbers, Division I offers will come.
Traffic jam in Frisco and not on the road
Heading into the final two weeks of the regular season, Frisco has already clinched a playoff berth as one of the top four teams in District 7-5A, Division II.
Independence heads into these final two weeks at 3-2, needing a win to clinch a spot.
But the real storyline is in District 5-5A Division I, where a plethora of teams sit at 2-3, causing a traffic jam in the standings.
This week will be huge for the four teams vying for the final spot.
Little Elm faces Frisco Heritage, and Frisco Wakeland takes on Frisco Centennial, causing lots of eyes to turn toward Frisco to see who moves closer toward claiming the coveted fourth spot.
