PLAYING HARD WHEN NOBODY’S LOOKING: PART 1; THE 806 ATHLETES TAKE

Since 2013, I have covered over 4,000 athletes in the 806 area; some with great talent, some with great work ethic.

806 FOOTBALL MANIA: TOP 10 3A/2A GAMES IN 2016… LET’S RUMBLE..

2A and 3A football, the heart of the gridiron and most of the time overlooked by the mainstream media. Not here in the 806, especially since we have the back-to-back state Champions from Canadian moving up to class 3A Division II this fall. Post drops down to 2A and we still have teams like New Deal, Littlefield, Slaton, Childress, and Muleshoe; who will join Shallowater in District 1-3A for an assured rematch of the 3A Regional Quarterfinal that the Mustangs pulled out in a thriller last year!
