Game notes: With Paschal traveling to play at Arlington Lamar, and the Vikings vying for the fourth playoff slot, Arlington Houston and Weatherford are not playing to stay out of the District 3-5A cellar, but rather to end their season on a positive note. 

Although the emotional scale may be tipped toward the Texans on their Senior Night, Sam Houston remains a very beatable team, with a volatile passing game should their  ground attack stall. Andrew Alavarado is the speed demon in the Texan backfield, but most of the rushing totals of note are spread among four runners, including quarterback Ervin Hill.

Giving up nearly 40 points per game on the year, the perhaps skewed number includes the top four teams of the district heap, and is a much more modest number in their contests against North Crowley and Paschal, with a 10-point average.

The Roo offense should move the ball well against Houston, and need only show diligence in protecting the pigskin. Led by defensive stalwarts Slade Hodge and Dalton Clubb, the Roos should be able to keep the score at a manageable level.
