7th Region Rankings (Updated as of morning of 12/22)

By ball_coach_4 - This is through December 21. I was going to wait until the completion of the KOB, but with the results so far, nothing much will change a team’s ranking much.

Next Rankings for 7th region will come New Year’s Eve at the completion of the Post-Christmas Tournaments. 1. Trinity (8-0) (1) Still executing at a high rate and playing beautifully as a team.

Don't Let Belfry Establish the Fullback

By Watusi - In today's spread 'em out and toss it around football culture, sometimes even the idea of a fullback seems odd. To think that the key to stopping a team on offense could be to stop the fullback seems almost foreign. But when it comes to Belfry, that is where you had better start.

Even if the FB isn't getting many yards, he is doing his job if he makes the defense collapse on him, and sometimes that can be an overlooked nuance of Belfry's game. Now, if the fullback is getting 12-15... Read More →

Danville= Texas Everyone knows their name and everyone respects it and remembers fondly of specific teams and players who made them elite. With... Read More →
