7 Thoughts, Improvements to the #TXHSFB Season
No doubt the 2020 season was one of the most memorial, if not the most memorable season in the history of Texas high school football existence.
We all know why.
Thousands of players, parents, coaches and support staff made this season possible. Yes, there were cancellations, postponements and general concern that the season might not even finish.
Put me in that category of people that thought were would never see State. With a virus that became out of control, especially in Texas, I figured the possibility of completing the year as very slightly more than 0 percent. Maybe slightly greater than a 50 percent shot with the small schools but definitely didn't think it was possible with big schools.
I'll eat that crow. Everyone banded together and made it work. Kudos to those.
But this column isn't about that. In being around the sport for six full seasons coupled with some things that occurred this year, I have some ideas I think would make things better.
2. Divisional Champs Meet

Tailcoating off of point No. 1, I think the Division Champs in all classes need to play each other.
Who wouldn't want to watch a matchup of Carthage and Argyle or Katy versus Austin Westlake?
You can still crown them their respective divisional champs, but we should really get one more week/game up and down the classes to say this particular team is the best in all of 6A, 5A, 4A and so on.
I understand the divisional split, but to be that team that can say they are the best of the best in their respective class just adds fuel to that fire of passion.
"The undisputed Class 6A State Champion."
Has a nice ring to it, right?
