Mike Says: Waco Hewitt Midway comes in scoring nearly 38 points per game. They had a huge win in the Regionals when they knocked off Region I favorite Denton Ryan. Tyler John Tyler has had an exciting playoff run with close, high scoring games against Hendrickson and Highland Park. The Lions features stars like QB Greg Ward (one of the most accurate passers in the state 72.9%), WR Fred Ross (93 receptions 1,264 yards 13 TDs), LB Richard Gipson (118 tackles, 5.5 sacks), DL Tydarious Johnson (60 tackles, 6 sacks) and DB Terry Ausborne (70 tackles, 4 INTs). Denton Ryan was my pre-season pick to play these Lions in the semifinal game. Midway takes their place and will be good enough to beat this explosive Lion team. The PANTHERS win 20-16!!!

Chris Says:  Tyler John Tyler has had the tougher road to get this far, but they have met every challenge and come out on top.  A lot of people have written them off this year, but the Lion magic is still getting it done.  Waco Hewitt Midway has been making believers out of the whole state.  This is a winnable matchup by either team, but Midway has been just too impressive to look past.  The PANTHERS win 31-19!!!
