Lone Star Gridiron

Richland Completes Perfect Championship Run

The Richland Rebels entered the FSN Southwest 7on7 State Tournament on nobodies list of favorites, but it didn't matter to them. Through pool play Richland remained a perfect 3-0 and with five layers of players remaining, the odds against them were still long.

By the time the Rebels reached the semi-finals, the critics were silenced and when they showed up in the title game against Mesquite, the Fort Worth area squad had attracted a bandwagon full of supporters.

Down early to the Skeeters of Mesquite, and with Tournament MVP Phillip Gonzales out because of cramping, the Rebels fought their way back into the lead and then held on for a 35-32 victory

Congratulations Rebels!
