Waco Midway State Qualifying Tournament Pools

Here are the pools, breakdowns and of course my predictions for the Waco Midway State Qualifying Tournament this weekend.

Pool A: Waco Midway, Edcouch-Elsa, Killeen Harker Heights, Austin Bowie

The host Waco Midway will be led by all-state 4-star Commit DB to Baylor Ahmad Dixon and WR Levi Norwood. The always dangerous and LSG's favorite traveling team Edcouch-Elsa will always be competitive. Killeen Harker Heights went 2-1 last week and will be led by RB Kerry Sloan. Austin Bowie was 2-1 last week and will try to be the upset victor.

Mike's Pick: Edcouch-Elsa

Pool B: Arlington, Round Rock Westwood, Killeen Shoemaker, Mission Sharyland

Arlington went 1-2 at the Arlington Lamar SQT while Round Rock Westwood went 2-1 at the SQT they hosted. Killeen Shoemaker will bring a very talented QB in Jameill Showers (2150 yrds passing in 2008, 4-star recruit Committed to Texas A&M). Mission Sharyland will have a tough time but will keep things close.
