McKinney High School advanced to the second round of playoffs with a win over Garland Naaman Forest, earning their first playoff win in over 20 years. Unfortunately for Lions fans, the playoff birth came to an end after a wild shootout against Waco Midway. The Lions made McKinney High School proud and VYPE had the honor to be on the scene to capture the moments!
Thanks to McKinney ISD for letting us be a part of this moment, and congratulations to the McKinney High School Lions on a historical season.
We are on to next one - UIL Regional Semifinals (Regional Finals for 1A) and TAPPS State Semifinals. After this week, there will be three weeks left of the Texas high school football season and then we'll get to barge right into the middle of high school basketball.
But before all of that, let's recap things a bit for the season picks. Last week was just OK going 44-17, and that was after a couples teams used pulled off some ridiculous comeback wins or fell way short of what I thought might happen. For the week that was a .721 clip and puts me at 332-114 on the year, which is .744 - just below that coveted .750.
So here we go with the 28 other picks of the week on top of the deeper dives with
Duncanville besting Arlington Martin; Highland Park exacting revenge on Frisco Lone Star; Texarkana Pleasant Grove handling Sunnyvale; Colleyville Heritage squeezing by Birdville in a rematch from a district loss; TC-Cedar Hill knocking off Grapevine Faith; Parish Episcopal knocking out Houston St. Thomas.
