Northside Brennan BearsMike Says: This is a match-up of our Pre-Season #2 (Guyer) vs. Pre-Season #6 (Brennan). We caught a little grief over having Brennan ranked so high but here they are. Guyer is the defending champ and will be led by dynamic QB Jerrod Heard. Brennan will bring what may be the states best defense in. This defense averages 14 Tackles For Loss per game. We had Guyer winning the championship in the pre-season but had Brennan falling in the Quarterfinals to Cedar Park. Sometimes these games are all about match-ups. I still think Guyer is a better overall team BUT if you can’t score you can’t win and nobody scores on that Brennan defense. The BEARS win in an upset (minor one) to win this battle of new schools (Guyer began varsity play in 2006, Brennan in 2010) 21-6!!

Northside Brennan BearsChris Says: I love when one of our sleepers turns in a great season and Northside Brennan has certainly done that.  Denton Guyer on the other hand has been right where most folks expected them.  At the end of the day, both programs are very young and both have their mind set on a title. You can bet that Denton Guyer has watched the video from Brennan’s game against SA East Central over and over again.  That is the ONLY game all season where a team scored more than 6 on the Bears.  In fact, Brennan has nine shutouts this season including a couple of playoff games.  Denton Guyer’s 1-1 record in championship games slips to 1-2.  The BEARS take it 24-20!!

Denton GuyerLSG Intern William Says: Brennon has cruised through their side of the bracket allowing a combined 21 points. Their offense also has been on a tear scoring 30 points or more in each game, Denton Guyer hasn’t been as dominant, but they’ve still set themselves above the rest of the tough region 1. While Brennon may have had the larger wins, Guyer still looks like the better team. Denton Guyer wins 32-23.

LSG Fan Poll Says:  In a decade of fan voting in various game polls, we have seen millions of votes for various teams and this has NEVER happened before.  Over 500 fans have weighed in on the Brennan vs Guyer showdown and not only is there no clear winner… the voting is EXACTLY TIED!!  Yes Northside Brennan (50.000000%) and Denton Guyer (50.000000%) are completely tied.  The result is… well, nothing.  Neither team wins – neither team loses – the fans have spoken!  (sort of)

Likely To Repeat As Champion?

  • Denton GuyerMike Says: The Longhorns won easily last year at Guyer as both of these teams rebounded from going a combined 2-6 to start off the season to championship games in December. Guyer went 1-0 in Games Of The Week last year while Cedar Hill went 0-1. Look for a big game from Guyer QB Jerrod Heard. This game will be a lot different than last year. The WILDCATS win big 40-28!!
  • Denton GuyerChris Says:  Yay!  I love when Mike and I disagree on a game.  I’m not necessarily talking about the outcome of the W/L column – just the way this one will turn out.  Cedar Hill did graduate a lot of offensive skill, but their power last season was in shutting down powerful offenses.  With 7 returning starters on a defense that held Denton Guyer to 28 last season, I expect them to do even better this time around.  Cedar Hill’s defense will hold but I’m not sure their offense can keep up.  WILDCATS take the victory 24-14!!!
  • Denton GuyerLSG Intern Zach Says: You have to like Cedar Hill, especially at home. The Longhorns are going to have one of the best defenses in the state and should make some noise in the playoffs. The only problem is Jerrod Heard. We all know he can run, but his improvement as a passer will make him almost unstoppable. With 11 other returning starters, he gets his revenge after last year’s blowout. Wildcats 35-31.

  • Mike Says:The Wildcats started the season 0-2 last year but turned things around to win a state championship. They bring back a lot from that team including superstar QB Jerrod Heard. I do not see any reason why this team will not be playing in their 3rd state championship game in only 8 years of varsity play. They open up the season at Cedar Hill which will pit the Class 4A DI champion against the Class 5A DII Runner Up.
  • Chris Says: John Walsh has built himself quite a dynasty in his 7 years as Denton Guyer’s only head coach.  This story will continue to grow this season.  Not only to the Wildcats bring back a ton of lettermen, but the majority of their starters too.  They win a state championship AND they have more experience, more growth, more belief in themselves.  Of course they are the favorite for a repeat visit to that final weekend of postseason play.  Sure, they will be tested by some tough matchups early and that is the reason why Denton Guyer will repeat as champions.

RRR: Randy Rodgers On Championship Weekend


Day 1 featured game –day domination by star players as Munday claimed the 1A-Division II title, Stamford claimed 1A Division I and East Bernard won Class 2A-Division II. Small school games have a tendency to be showcases for star players and Thursday was certainly the case at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

Munday 42 Tenaha 14:

In a rematch of last year’s final, won by Tenaha on a terrific performance by Reginald Davis, now at Texas Tech, Munday gained revenge on the strength of the play of their star Dee Paul. Paul who owns numerous gold medals in track , rushed for 263 yards on 16 carries, scoring on runs of 57,55,and 60 yards. Paul, who suffered a first half wrist injury, show no effects after halftime, but never threw a pass in the second half. Junior DE L.J. Collier had four tackles for loss, caused a fumble, and intercepted a pass and ran 35 yards for another touchdown, as the Moguls shut out Tenaha in the second half.

Stamford 35 Mart 28:

Stamford’s Hagen Hutchinson (son of the head coach) won an unprecedented MVP on BOTH offense and defense in leading the Bulldogs to victory. Hutchins rushed for two touchdowns, passed for two, made 17 tackles from his free safety position, and intercepted Mart’s last pass of the game as time expired. For the day, Huchinson completed 22 of 30 passes for 248 yards, and rushed for 132 yards on 23 carries. Mart had kept the lead in a see-saw battle until Hutchinson’s 43 yard run with 6:16 to play in the third quarter tied it and his 9 yard run with just 32 seconds left was the game winner.

East Bernard 56 Corsicana Mildred 14:

TCU commit Ty Slanina dominated the game, rushing for 155 yards on just 7 carries, scoring three touchdowns on the ground, passing for one, scoring again on a 12 yard fumble recovery and returning a punt set up the Brahma’s first touchdown.. The senior, who is the defending Class 2A long jump champion, was also instrumental in holding Mildred QB Nic Shimonek (Iowa commit) to just 159 yards passing. East Bernard dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides and rolled to a 35-0 lead before Mildred dented paydirt.

DAY TWO: DAY Two featured tradition-rich small towns battling for state titles. The Crowds were bigger and louder and turnovers and mistakes dotted the landscape.

Cameron-Yoe 39 Daingerfield 20:

In a rematch of the 2010 title game in 2A Division I , the Yoemen took advantage of Tiger mistakes, scoring twice early and winning the turnover battle 5-0. Two pooch punts from Jason Kopriva pinned Daingerfield inside their own ten twice in the first quarter, resulting in turnovers and Yoe touchdowns. After the first one, Yoe picked off a pass inside the ten and converted for a quick 7-0 lead. A second one resulted in a botched Daingerfield punt recovered by all state DT Edgar Luna for a second touchdown. Cameron raced to a 28-0 halftime lead and cruised home.

Navasota 39 Gilmer 3:

The unbeaten Rattlers scored early and often to go wire to wire as 3A’s # 1 team. With star RB Xavier Creek in the hospital as a result of a Thursday morning car accident, the Rattles played inspired football with his #8 jersey on display in the bench area. WR Austin Collins scored three touchdowns to earn MVP honors. Collins rushed for 96 yards on just four carries and caught three passes for 64 yards, including a spectacular diving touchdown grab to give Navasota a 26-3 halftime lead. Navasota’s defense completely stymied the Buckeye offense and the result was never in doubt as the Rattlers won Class 3A Division II.

Cedar Park 17 Lancaster 7:

In the day’s most entertaining game, the 4A Division II title clash offered a real contrast in styles. Speedy, big- play Lancaster vs. old school power running Cedar Park. The Timberwolves eventually wore down the Tigers and claimed the title. Lancaster scored first as Demarcus Ayers weaved 57 yards to paydirt on the Tigers first possession. But that point on Cedar Park dominated with their ground game and Lancaster gave up 93 yards in penalties, many unforced and/or dead ball. Cedar Park finally took the lead in the fourth quarter on a 22 yard Zac Hancock field goal, and tacked on a 14 yard Mikal Wilson td run with just over 3 minutes remaining to clinch the win. Lancaster’s big play guys, Ayers, Nick Harvey, and Nick Alexander were seemingly one play away from breaking the game open, but penalties, turnovers, and missed opportunities thwarted the Tiger big.


Day three was for the big schools as the 4A Division I crown was settled and both of the Class 5A games. A reported 46,000 fans watched the middle game between Katy and Cedar Hill. Like Thursday
outstanding performances by outstanding players was the standard.

Denton Guyer 48 Georgetown 37:

Denton Guyer, making its second trip to the finals in three years pulled away from unbeaten Georgetown in the second half as the Wildcats claimed the 4A Division I title. Junior QB Jerrod Heard, who came into the game with just shy of 4000 yards of total offense, split almost evenly between running and passing, was the star for Denton Guyer. Heard completed 7/12 passes for 177 yards and two touchdowns, and rushed for 145 yards on 24 carries and scored five touchdowns on the ground. Heard’s seven touchdowns were the top performance of the day.

Katy 35 Cedar Hill 24:

Katy claimed its seventh state title with a see saw win over Cedar Hill in 5A Division II. Nebraska bound RB Adam Taylor became the first RB to take home an MVP award for the weekend by rushing 30 times for 275 yards and five touchdowns. Taylor scored from all distances, but his crushing blow was touchdown #4, as he raced 52 yards on a 4th and 1 , as Katy took the lead for the last time. Cedar Hill had battle back from an early deficit on two touchdown passes from Arkansas State bound Damion Hobbs to Iowa State bound Brandon Harris, plus a 24 yard Hobbs touchdown run. But Katy closed the deal with Taylor breaking off another long td run in the final three minutes to give Coach Gary Joseph his third state title.

Allen 35 Houston Lamar 21:

Marcus Ward’s 67 yard touchdown run with just over six minutes remaining turned the tide for Allen, as they shook off Lamar to win 5A Division I. Ward scored two second half touchdowns as the Eagles held off Lamar who threatened numerous times in the second half, but Allen’s defense came up big. Allen took a 21-15 lead in the first half as sophomore QB. Kyler Murray scored twice from long range, the first on a 55 yard scramble and the second on a 68 yard run on a zone read. Murray also threw a first half touchdown pass to earn game MVP honors. Allen finished 15-1, losing only to Coppell, while Lamar suffered its first loss of the season.

* Are moving back down to 4A after going 21-7 in their 2 seasons in 5A
* Went 1-19 in their first 2 seasons of varsity play (2006-2007) and have gone 46-12 since then

  • Mike Says: The Wildcats will be one of the favorites to win it all this year. The pass/catch duo or QB Heard and WR Jefferson will ring up lots of yards while OL Morris gives them time up front to get the ball downfield. The defense will feature a few good DB’s in Schilleci and Sanches. Look for them to go 9-1 or 8-2 in the regular season. The only reason they would not be undefeated is because they play a very tough pre-district schedule with games against Aledo, Cedar Hill and Colleyville Heritage. The Rider game in district play will be for the district championship. Aledo and Rider will be their top competition for the Regional crown. The Wildcats are good and will make a good run to their 2nd championship game in 3 years.
  • Chris Says: Denton Guyer has been a solid team in Class 5A and with the drop down to 4A should be considered a threat to take home a state championship.   The Wildcats bring a ton of talent back from last season including 7 starters on offense.  This high-powered attack will thrill fans and even though they could drop three games during the regular season, they will be ready to run through the 4A competition come playoff time.
