Mike Says: Stamford will be looking to go to their first championship game since 1959. Mart is looking to go to their 9th championship game since 1957. Stamford will be led by QB Hagen Hutchinson (2,399 yards 26 TDs), WR/DB Jessie Ramos (79 receptions 1,404 yards 17 TDs, 7 INTs, 41 tackles) and LB Mario Gonzales (139 tackles). The Mart defense will need to come up big against that potent Stamford passing attack. The defense is only give up 12 points per game but they have given up 57 points in the last 2 games. Its time for Mart to play nice and let someone else play for a championship. The BULLDOGS win 26-21!!!

Chris Says:  What a game!  This one is what Texas high school football is all about.  We are talking about two great programs - the old guard versus the recent superstars.  Stamford has been telling the state through their on-field exploits that they are ready to return to dominance.  Mart has been telling the state for years that they ARE dominant.  Is this a passing of the guard?  Will Stamford return to former glory?  Will Mart go back to business as usual?  Both teams have had their hands full when going up against good teams and both teams have managed to come out on top.  I think Mart's recent run will continue and Stamford will use this year to set the scene for future success.  PANTHERS win 32-28!!!
