Everyone loves a little cross-town, in school district rivalry game, don't they? This week in Texas High School Football, two Birdville ISD teams face off against one another for the chance to take bragging rights over the other. The Birdville Hakws head to the Richland Royals in a match-up that you're not going to want to miss. VYPE DFW has the breakdown for you as well as what you should watch for in this week's game!
Birdville (3-3, 1-2)
<p><strong>Birdville Hawks</strong></p><p>The Hawks are coming into the game on Friday night after a disappointing 41-21 loss to Mansfield Legacy. The team has a 3-3 overall record (1-2 in district play) and is absolutely looking to improve their district record this week. Despite three losses on the season, the team has posted strong wins against the likes of Haltom, Crowley, and district opponent Burleson Centennial. </p><p>Senior quarterback Aidan Dollar has been heavily relied on throughout the season. Not only has Dollar thrown for nine touchdowns on 924 passing yards (completing 62% of his passes), but he is also the team's lead rusher with 572 rushing yards and eight rushing touchdowns on 75 carries. We're going to have to see a big game from Dollar and the rest of the team filling in any of the gaps possible for Birdville to come out successful.</p><p><br></p>
What To Expect
Fans can expect both teams to come into the game ready to play and ready to win. This is a game that both of them are hungry for and we will see that throughout the entirety of the matchup. With strong athletes on either side of the ball, there is going to be tons of action to keep up with. Ultimately, Richland's defense might have a little bit more of an upper hand, but if Birdville's offense can bust through then the Hawks stand a chance.

Last week the Prosper Eagles came out on top in a matchup against McKinney. With a 31-14 victory, the Eagles improved to a 4-3 overall record (1-2 in district play). VYPE U photographer, Neena Sidhu, was there to catch all of the action!
Quarterback Harrison Rosar helped lead Prosper to victory as he threw three touchdowns on 238 passing yards during the game. Prosper scored two unanswered touchdowns in the second quarter to lead 17-7 going into halftime. McKinney was able to score their second touchdown of the game in the third quarter, but the fourth quarter saw two more touchdowns for the Eagles- one of which included a 30-yard pass from Rosar to Tyler Bailey.

Parish Episcopal football's sophomore offensive guard Aidan Gilmore has posted a great season so far as he continues to be a driving force for the Panthers' offensive line. Gilmore has done a great job as the team has posted a 5-1 overall record so far (3-0 in district play)- including a big win last week over Prestonwood Christian Academy. VYPE DFW caught up with Gilmore in regards to the season so far as well as his plans for the future.
Eyes on the Prize
Staying focused can prove to be difficult for many young athletes, but for Gilmore there are many factors that keep him at the top of his performance and allow him to stay focused every off-season and regular season. "Staying in contact and training with Donald Hawkins and other D1/NFL athletes [keeps me focused]," Gilmore told VYPE. Last season, part of what kept Gilmore successful was his focus and continual training, but there was more to it: "I think the main thing is staying as close and personable with the team and sticking together like a family."
The team was obviously extremely successful last season as they posted their second-straight TAPPS state championship. "We worked 100% of the time," Gilmore noted as he recognized the hard work that the entire team put into last season's championship run. This season, Gilmore says the team has the same goal as last season: "Win state... again." Gilmore says he is looking forward to continuing to work and win together with his team.
While playing for Parish, Gilmore has been making regular college visits with the most recent visits being at Texas as well as Kansas State. One of Gilmore's goals this season- among playing the best he can in order to win state again- is bringing in college offers. Gilmore has posted some of his visits on social media to include a trip to the Red River Rivalry game last week and a campus visit to Kansas State a couple of weeks ago where the Wildcats' fans treated Gilmore as though he was already part of the team:

Although Gilmore has not yet committed to a program, he hopes to receive offers soon as he continues to play for Parish Episcopal. Gilmore has expressed interest in wanting to major in sports management or business and marketing when he is in college. As far as what he's looking for in a school? It's simple, says Gilmore. "I look for the vibe of the coaching staff- how the connection is and how they would be if they were coaching me. I also look at the feel of community and the school."
What is your favorite professional sports team?
"The Dolphins because of my friend, Greg Little, who plays for them, but I will cheer on my home team (Dallas Cowboys) sometimes."
Who do you look up to as an athlete?
"I look up to Greg Little, Austin Uke, Donald Hawkins, and others."
