It’s time for district play for most high school football team, and close to home, there is plenty of action tonight. As always there’s a little backstory for everyone.

Stephenville and China Spring
The #6 Yellow Jackets (3-2) despite two losses are still in the top ten of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football poll, and so are the #4 Waco La Vega Pirates (4-2). Both teams got that respect the hard way with games against #1 Argyle and #5 Midlothian.
China Spring brings in a 4-2 record into Stephenville’s annual Hall of Fame game and while they may have a better record the competition they have faced was not top ten. The Jackets are rested after a week off – some might even say restless.
The biggest question for the coaching staff might be when is it time to pull the skill players out?
Tolar and Dublin
If you want to see someone who is hungry to beat somebody head to Dublin tonight as Tolar comes to town after costing the Lions a trip to the playoffs last year 30-28.
The fortunes appear to have changed with Tolar having lost to DeLeon earlier this season and Dublin doubled up on DeLeon for a 46-23 win.
Coach Bob Cervetto’s Lions are 5-0 and appear poised to make it 6-0.
Hico and DeLeon
Jerry Morgan of the Hico News Review had a clever headline this week about “deTigers” headed to “deGame
The Tigers know about injury having lost their starting quarterback before the season got started and they are coming off a huge 57-0 win over Petrolia.
This one of those games to go and watch just because you love high school football and with the way things have played out this year it’s probably going to be close.
Too close to call.
In other are games, Bluff Dale 4-2 is headed to North Central Texas, Faith is at Zephyr and Lingleville plays Woodson
