Some how, some way, the royal "we" found a way to get through this hectic, unprecedented season. There was always concern lurking in the background that the season would be further delayed or wouldn't even finish.
But here we are. The final week of a 21-week season with the final four games here.
And in this space, we're going to change up the preview style. Instead of previewing both teams, we'll take the local angle and dig deep into the DFW teams - starting with Aledo in its matchup with Crosby for the 5A Division II State Championship.
ARLINGTON - In typical Argyle fashion, the offense went to work right away as CJ Rogers threw a 44-yard dime on the game's first play, and then Offensive MVP Tito Byce finished off the drive.
From there, Argyle was off and rolling as Byce scored two more first quarter touchdowns - four for the game - to finished off an undefeated regular season and capture the program's second state title.
Lindale had no answer for the Argyle offense, which finished with the four most yards in a state title game at 571. On the flip side, Lindale had nothing going for it as the Argyle defense held the potent Lindale rushing attack to just 46 yards in the half.
🥶 Byce, Byce Baby 🥶

After Byce got his in the first half, Rogers went to work in the second half, throwing three touchdowns to keep the game well in hand.
And after the final gun and the Gatorade bath, the biggest sigh of relieve came out of coach Todd Rogers.
