THE 806 ULTIMATE REGIONAL SEMIFINAL PREVIEW: GET YOUR POPCORN READY..

The playoffs are still rolling and we still have a plethora of teams left from the 806! We have a few games where there are 806 teams playing each other, but for the most part, it's 806 versus everybody. Here is every game for our 806 teams and private schools for this upcoming Thanksgiving weekend!


6A:


TASCOSA VS FLOWER MOUND MARCUS

3:00PM MEMORIAL STADIUM, WICHITA FALLS TX


Tascosa reigns as the best Big School team in the 806 and look to make another run to the State Semifinals just like last season. Joseph Plunk had another great game against Arlington Bowie and led the Rebels to a 45-37 win. Flower Mound Marcus has some players, but will it be enough to send the Rebels home? I don't think so.


5A DII


LUBBOCK-COOPER VS RANDALL

FRIDAY 4PM KIMBROUGH STADIUM, CANYON TX


The Pirates, the Raiders of Wichita Falls, Randall, and the Wichita Coyotes are still playing from the same district! They square off against each other this Friday with Randall, at home, with a huge game against the Pirates in one of the mid-day tilts. Lubbock-Cooper outlasted the Raiders in their regular season game but this game will be a lot tougher and is on the road at one of the toughest places to play when it's rocking. Will the Raiders be able to contain the Pirates and the Wildcat game of Nehemiah Martinez? He had 8 carries for 223 yards and 4 touchdowns on the ground and also had a pick-six against EP Burges Friday. Randall will be up and ready for the challenge..What a game on the way!!


4ADI



DUMAS VS DECATUR

FRIDAY 7PM LOWERY FIELD, LUBBOCK TX


Dumas is on a hot streak; an all year hot streak as the Demons have put together 12-straight wins! A huge win over WF Hircshi and Seminole have propelled the Demons into a huge Regional Round Semifinal game against the #4th-ranked Decatur Eagles. Dumas has the recipe to defeat the Eagles and that's with their running game and spectacular defense! You have to believe first, and then execute your gameplan next. I believe in Coach Aaron Dunnam and the Demons.. Do they believe as well?


4A DII


ESTACADO VS MIDLAND GREENWOOD

FRIDAY 7PM ABILENE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY


The Matadors unveiled a new wrinkle in their offense Friday; the deep ball. Jay'lon Dobbins had 385 passing yards and five touchdowns through the air with four of those going to TJ Steele in a 40-21 win over Graham Friday. The Mats' will need all phases working to beat Midland Greenwood this weekend. The Rangers are ranked 4th in the state in 4A DII, and have been blitzing their opponents this season. Passing is key for Greenwood, but it will be very tough for them against Estacado's secondary. I think the Matadors will continue their winning ways.


3A DI

BUSHLAND VS BROCK

FRIDAY 3PM HAWKS STADIUM, IOWA PARK TX


Bushland defeated a very good Whitesboro team, 34-10 and look to continue to stack W'S. This game will be a matchup of two of the top four teams in 3A DI and the winner will have to control the line of scrimmage. I saw Brock Thursday in their 57-14 win over Denver City and their offense was sharp! I still think the Falcons can win this game as long as they don't turn the ball over!


3A DII


CANADIAN VS CISCO

FRIDAY 2PM LIONS STADIUM VERNON TX


Canadian has been superb all year, but Cisco has caught fire late. The Wildcats pulled away from Coahoma late and Cisco handled Crane on Friday for an easy win. Can Cisco hang in there and get a huge victory over the Wildcats? Honestly, I don't think so as Canadian is just too good and too locked in.




FRIONA VS ABERNATHY

FRIDAY 3PM LOWERY FIELD, LUBBOCK TX


What a season for the Chieftains! They have advanced to the Regional Round for only the second time in their school history! Jacob Bautista and the rest of the young guns are growing up fast right before our eyes. Talking with Coach Arias after their win over Alpine Saturday he revealed to me that this team only won one game in the eighth grade! That's what you call coaching and never quitting. They will need that attitude when they take on Abernathy; one of the teams on the short list for state title contenders in 3A DII. Bryson Daily scored 6 total touchdowns last week and the Antelopes' defense in really clicking right now. This game will be won in the trenches, and open-field tackling...


2A DI
