FOUR THINGS THAT STOOD OUT TO ME DURING 2017 SPRING FOOTBALL IN THE 806..

Well, Spring Ball 2017 is over for the “6”..What did we learn from the 18 practices these 5A and 6A teams held over May? A lot. How about Frenship having their first-ever Spring practices and game under new management, I mean, new head coach in Northcutt and Lubbock-Cooper practicing and playing at their middle school field due to new turf being installed on their main field. Coronado opened up the spring by trying to find new playmakers in the secondary and which receivers would replace Chance Fair and Noah Sifrit…

ALL OF A SUDDEN.. 1-4A DI’S TITLE RACE JUST GOT INTERESTING…

At the start of the summer I thought this would be a race between Pampa and Levelland for first place with Estacado and Borger bringing up the rear. Now a week before the district starts to play each other it is wide open with Estacado looking to take it away from the other teams in 1-4A DI. Chances are the district will still be decided by the Levelland vs Pampa winner in the final week of the season, but what If the Matadors beat the Lobos on October 14th? What…

MATADOR MASH: ESTACADO WINS THIRD STRAIGHT GAME IN BLOWOUT FASHION

In a game that we thought would be close due to the memorable match-ups the Estacado Matadors and the Shallowater Mustangs have had in the last few years, this one wasn’t even close after the first quarter. The Matadors made some key plays in the first stanza on defense, including a 92-yard fumble return touchdown and blew out the Shallowater Mustangs, 63-7 on Thursday night. In the first, the Matadors struck quickly with a 19-yard touchdown pass from Bo Sims to “Quavy” Nathan to take a 7-0 lead over Shallowater.…
