Parish Episcopal Panthers Football has only one game left this season- the one for all the marbles. The biggest stage in TAPPS football is set and the Panthers are no stranger to making their appearance and presence known. This season, the team is in search of their fourth-straight state title as they take on Prestonwood Christian Academy. VYPE DFW breaks down the match-up below:
After setting an incredible legacy over the last few years, establishing a name for themselves, and demanding excellence in order to be beaten, the Parish Panthers have made their way back to the state championships. Going 11-1 overall this season (4-0 in district play), the Panthers hit the field and never hit the brakes. The team finished at the top of their district after defeating Bishop Lynch, Fort Worth Nolan Catholic, Trinity Christian Academy - Addison, and Prestonwood Christian Academy.
Using their preseason play to sharpen their abilities and gain advanced knowledge, Parish proved that they have what it takes to compete amongst the best in the area- including defeating strong UIL teams who are consistently UIL State contenders in their respective classifications like Aledo and Austin LBJ. Showing that the are more than just "hype" athletes like Tre Williams, Maddux Reid, Cedric Mays, Seth Scott, Sawyer Andreson, Daniel Demery, and more have been determined to get right back to this point and close out another season with a crown.
The Prestonwood Christian Lions are also no stranger to the biggest stage in TAPPS football. Five-time state champions, Prestonwood has made it back to the state finals with every intention to bring home gold. The team has had an incredible season while posting a 9-2 overall schedule (3-1 in district play) and finishing second in their district standings- just behind Parish Episcopal. The defense has been alert and able to provide opportunities for the offense to head back out onto the field each game.
After a season-opening loss to Argyle Liberty Christian, the Lions went on a seven-game win streak defeating the likes of Fort Worth All Saints Episcopal School, Houston Second Baptist, Trinity Christian Academy - Addison, Bishop Lynch, and more. Their only other loss this season? A 42-14 loss against Parish Episcopal during their final game of the regular season. Led by AJ Sibley, Luke McGary, Hudson Lunsford, Carter Stoutmire, and more, Prestonwood is fired up and ready to get the job done on Friday.
What To Expect:
This, by no means, is going to be a quick and easy match. Both of these teams have rich history in the playoffs and at the state title game; athletes that comprise both of these teams' rosters are willing to lay it all on the line in order to add another ring to their collection. Having already seen each other this season (only three weeks ago), they know what holes and blind spots to attack during the biggest game of the season.
A revenge match unlike any other, fans can expect to see Prestonwood continue to be smart on their feet. Known for running the ball well, the Lions are going to try to set the tone early as soon as their offense steps on the field. Panthers fans can expect impactful play on both ends of the ball. Parish is known for being a force on the field- able to bounce back after nearly any blemish.
Kick-off is set for 7 p.m. on Friday, December 2nd and you aren't going to want to miss even a second of the action in a championship game that is anyones for the taking. If you can't make the game at Waco ISD Stadium, tune in on TAPPS.tv

V.R. Eaton Girls Basketball
The V.R. Eaton Lady Eagles are back on the court and working harder than ever to make a strong push towards the playoffs. With the idea to continually be better powering them through each moment, the Lady Eagles are looking to get the job done this season. VYPE DFW takes a dive into the program and just what fans can expect from this squad in the 2022-23 season!
A Look Back
Last season, the Lady Eagles had a rough schedule as they went 15-14 overall (3-9 in district play). Fighting hard to get through each play, Eaton never doubted that they were meant for greatness on the court. Learning from ever moment, the Lady Eagles posted victories over Odessa Permian, Keller Central, Keller Fossil Ridge, Denton Ryan, Byron Nelson, and more while managing to still outscore their opponents throughout the season. Without a playoff appearance, the Lady Eagles got right to work in the offseason; preparing their game for the upcoming season.
Hard work, dedication, and determination has been driving the Lady Eagles this season. With a 3-3 preseason record so far, the Lady Eagles are still working to fine tune every area of their game plan before heading into district play. The team has posted victories over Fort Worth Chisholm Trail, Austin Lake Travis, and Abilene.
With two non-district games left, the Lady Eagles are determined to improve their ability on the court and enter district play on a high. Their first district game will be in front of a home crowd as they take on Keller on December 13th! Fans can expect to see the Lady Eagles play hard and push to make a playoff run.
Be sure to catch the team in action this season!

The V.R. Eaton Eagles basketball team is on the hunt for greatness this season. As the team continues to work through their preseason schedule- inching closer to district play- VYPE DFW takes a dive into the program to lay out exactly what fans can expect from this team.
A Look Back
Last season, the Eagles went 20-13 overall (6-6 in district play) and finished fourth in their district standings. Putting in the work on the court through practices and games, fans could see the passion that Eaton had every single time they stepped onto the court. The team outscored their opponents by over 150 points on the season while recording a 61% winning percentage. With victories over the likes of Krum, The Colony, Aledo, Keller Fossil Ridge, Southlake Carroll, and more in the regular season, the Eagles went right into playoffs. Despite their strong effort, they were knocked out of playoffs by North Crowley.
This season, the Eagles opened strong with a 62-37 victory over Hurst L.D. Bell. The team has been using momentum to power them through their preseason play. Eaton has defeated the likes of North Garland, Frisco Emerson, and Waco University to record a 4-3-1 record so far; tying 57-57 against Frisco Heritage.
As the team continues to improve their defensive tactics, fans can expect them to play hard through the rest of their non-district games. Eaton has only a handful of non-district games left including matchups against DeSoto, Lake Dallas, and more. From there, they head into their first district game at Keller where they will face-off against Keller Central on December 20th.
If you haven't already caught this team in action, you aren't going to want to miss many of their matches. Be sure to look for their schedule and catch a few games in person this season!
