Texas High School Football Statewide Scoreboard Oct. 20

North Texas dominates Associated Press Top 10s

Third-year Frisco Independence closes in on state playoff berth

Cedar Hill All Access Video: Josh Fleeks is latest #tthl star to emerge

Week 9 Thursday Oct. 20

  • It seems fitting Allen was one of the first in the state to formally clinch a Texas high school football playoff spot. Allen defeated McKinneyt for the District 6-6A spot. Allen has won 65 of its last 66. The Eagles' only loss was in the state semifinals last season after three consecutive Class 6A Division I state titles. As expected, No. 1 in the state Allen will not face No. 2 DeSoto. It's all but official after Thursday night. Allen has defeated DeSoto the last four years in the state playoffs but DeSoto will go Division II this year after UIL realignment. See SGP win story below for details.
  • South Grand Prairie defeated Irving Nimitz, 38-0 and all but mathematically clinched the four playoff spots of District 7-6A. SGP senior running back/receiver Lawrence Dixon rushed for two touchdowns but it was a dominating defense which allowed only 11 first downs which keyed the victory. SGP had the biggest first-round victory of the 2015 state playoffs with a win over Euless Trinity and hopes to go past the three rounds it went last year. DeSoto is leading 7-6A with Cedar Hill and Duncanville expected to take the other spots and all will be mathematically clinched if Grand Prairie loses to Cedar Hill on Friday.
  • Third-year Frisco Independence defeated Wakeland, 38-35, as Kansas commit senior running back Dominic Williams scored three touchdowns to break open a 14-14 game. Williams totaled 291 yards rushing with four touchdowns but his three TD scoring spurt separated Independence with a 35-21 lead. Independence didn't get a victory over a rival Frisco ISD school in its first varsity season last year but now appears headed toward a state playoff berth with only two games remaining. Frisco Lone Star reached the Class 5A state final last year and leads District 13-5A.
  • Keller Central 49, Fossil Ridge 28 Central senior quarterback Reese Robertson rushed for four touchdowns and passed for another for Central's second victory over their KSID rival in the last six years. Central (4-4, 3-1) strengthens its playoff drive in a District 3-6A where undefeated Abilene is a solid first-place but the remaining three playoffs spots will be up for grabs in the season's final three weeks.
  • A state semifinalist last year, Mansfield (6-2, 5-0 District 4-6A) got 299 yards rushing from Oklahoma commit running back Kennedy Brooks. According to The Dallas Morning News stats, Brooks (a lot like the Sooners' current RB Joe Mixon) has 2,113 yards rushing which is nearly 1,000 yards more than the No. 2 rusher in North Texas. Notre Dame WR/DB commit Saiid Adebo caught two touchdown passes in the victory over Arlington Sam Houston.
