    Congrats to the winners of the Texas State Championships that took place at Cowboys Stadium the last few days. Your winners are Munday, Stamford, East Bernard, Cameron Yoe, Navasota, Cedar Park, Katy, Denton Guyer, and Allen. I got to attend the Navasota and Cedar Park victories. Lots of fun, and congrats to all. :)

    Allen baby!

    That's where I spent my entire childhood and graduated high school. Proud of them.

    Allen had a strong game, and that QB is awesome. I didn't attend CPHS, but my son graduated from there(he was on the track and cross country teams. Now he's a senior at Baylor.), my nephew was on the Band when they won state last year, and now my niece is a Cedar Park Celebrity song girl there. It's been a ton of fun. I told my niece to just cherish the moment. Our team won, and she got to perform in venue most ever won't be able to.

    I think Allen's QB is only 15. They decided to get real good at football after I graduated haha.

    Very cool your kids got to see their team win while they attended school; and your daughter was a part of it. It always makes it a lot more fun when it's your colleagues who are succeeding.

    North Texas--and espcially Dallas area--teams always seem to do well.
    Allen this year, but Euless Trinity, Cedar Hill, Southlake, Highland Park, Ennis, etc, etc.

    But Katy really is a powerhouse. Not sure what their state title count is but, they've won several of them.

    Would love to see Allen and Katy square off...with Allen winning, of course. ;)

    Did you happen to catch this note about Stamford Bulldogs Hagen Hutchison, the QB/DB and head coach's son?


    Pretty cool I thought.

    When you only have one enormous high school for the entire city of Allen, you're going to have good talent on that team just due to the amount of kids that go that school. However, if Plano only had one school just like Allen, there's no question they would be just as good.

    Plano West alone has over 5000 students, if you count the senior high ( 11th 12th ) plus 2 freshmen & sophomore school with over 3000 collectively.

    Plano High has over 2500 students just at the senior high - Plano East has over 3000 at the senior high, so if you combined those schools & freshmen/sophomore schools, you're looking at 15,000 students. Not to mention you have two massive private schools in Prestonwood & John Paul ll HS, who actually milk the talent from the high schools.

    They would be unstoppable. Desoto/Cedar Hill & Duncanville routinely turnout some of the best talent in the metroplex. All of those schools need to be broken up.

    Southlake also needs to be broken up. If you look in the inner city, those teams have been hit so hard by schools breaking a part to make room for students, a lot of the inner city schools have become 4a schools. Combine 3 of those inner city schools, and no one would ever win anything but them.

    So, it's a little uneven when you have a school, like Richland in the mid-cities area of DFW, with barely enough for 5a, 1600 students combined - no freshmen/sophomore schools, going up against a school with a combined student count of over 5000. Just not fair.

    I talked to a couple of Allen execs, they don't want their school broken up. They have a 60mil stadium, and an arena sized basketball gym, world class video-production on campus, it's huge. Plus their band has over 700 members, can't fit on the field all at once.

    Yet, their basketball team sucks. Just so funny...

    I also agree with this. If you can't combine them, then break all of them up and make it a more even playing field. Yet, we all know Allen will have no part of this. Their high school looks like a mall for heaven sakes and their stadium looks better than most Div 2 college stadiums.

    Tech is going to recruit this kid. They have lots of open spots now with the new staff coming in. They lost 5-7 Juco's Tubs recruited and took with him.

    Also recruiting Dee Paul from Munday.

    Southlake won titles from 2A to 5A. They simply built a football factory regardless of classes sizes. Lots of ex-Cowboys live and send their kids to school out there. The QB this year, top of the line recruit Kenny Hill is the son of former Rangers starting pitcher Ken Hill.

    With that type money and connections they'll remain great no matter what.
    If I had a son I would have moved to Southlake for the football program.

    Cedar Hill, DeSoto, Duncanville have the benefit of being the "black" suburbs. They have an embarrassment of riches in talent. Size of student base doesnt make much difference there.

    Plano is a large, diverse area and especially West Plano has some money behind it. But those schools were the original monster schools in DFW and can't complain at all. They had the benefit for a decade of facing Dallas ISD schools 1/2 their size each week in the first 3 rounds of the playoffs. I absolutely hated Plano schools because they cut block you with 200 pound linemen. It is ridiculously low class to play like that in high school ball and thankfully is now outlawed.
