How the Top Ten Fared Week 8

Allen, which hasn’t lost a regular-season game since 2012, rolled in a District 6-6A showdown with Denton Guyer, whose only other loss, by the way, was to No. 2 DeSoto. Allen won three-consecutive state titles largely with Kyler Murray at controls (Murray played all but one game in the streak) but Allen is now doing it with a variety of stars. Allen plays two quarterbacks and two running backs regularly.

Notice first-time state-ranked Southlake Carroll picked up a nice win over Flower Mound Marcus. Carroll’s senior star Robert Barnes was shaken up and didn’t return after the first series. Carroll trailed 7-3 at halftime but found some offense with senior quarterback Mason Holmes finding connections with senior Clayton Keyes, who caught three passes for 139 yards. Keyes, a versatile athlete who may be better known for lacrosse in Southlake, was Carroll’s leading returning receiver with five catches but it was Southlake moving Oklahoma commit defensive back Barnes to receiver which has sparked Carroll’s offense in the last month.

Barnes, the son of former South Grand Prairie/Oklahoma/NFL player Reggie Barnes, didn’t have a reception in his first three years while he started as a freshman in the state playoffs as a linebacker. Barnes, who likely will return next week unless he has to be held out with concussion protocols, has 18 catches for 386 yards with four touchdowns this season. He has a rushing touchdown as well. But defenses being forced to double-team Barnes has created multiple other offensive opportunities. Carroll is coming off a strong stretch of wins of (then state-ranked) Euless Trinity, Lewisville and Marcus.

In Class 5A, a very underrated Mansfield Legacy defeated No. 6 Waxahachie, 45-33. Legacy isn’t a big upset largely because it competes in District 10-5A which makes it extremely difficult to reach the state playoffs with Waxahachie and No. 7 Lancaster leading the competition along with 2015 state finalist Mansfield Lake Ridge. Legacy, in effect, knocked Waxahachie out of the state playoffs last season with a 73-66 victory over the Hachie and Jon Kitna, a former Dallas Cowboys player who took over at Waxahachie last season.
