The October chill in the evening wind in West Texas means the season is starting to slowly wind down to the Texas High School Football fan. We're at the midpoint of the season with everyone poised to play their first district games. Those are what separate the men from the boys!
Changes abound for several schools compared to the initial deployment of the D1 Nation's early season power rankings over a month ago.
Three constants remain on the list with Midland Lee, Greenwood, Wall and Balmorhea remaining undefeated, while Ralph Mason's Andrews Mustangs remain consistent.
Lee overcame a scare last week in their win over Frenship as they overcame a 28-7 first quarter deficit. They have cracked the Top 20 in the State Poll and sit at #19 behind the legs and arm of quarterback Mikey Serrano, and his pitch and catch sidekick, 2020 WR Loic Fouonji. The Rebs have averaged nearly 65 points per game over their past three games.
Greenwood is poised to make a long run in the state playoff with offensive weapons of Brody Ray at wide out, the backfield tandem of Trey Cross and Ryan Snodgrass and the guidance of serviceable quarterback Weston Wilbur, who directs the offensive attack with skilled precision. They have averaged nearly 57 points per game the past four weeks.
