    2020 Recruiting Board/Thread

    He is a good one and will only get better. He is still 15 years old. Currently, he is 6'6" and 225 pounds. He has put on 30 pounds since last season. He has yet to be blocked one on one when he is stood up and is on the tackle's outside shoulder. He has a very quick first step.
  2. It has been a fun ride watching these kids play. I watched several of these kids play in the youth leagues when they were 11 and 12 years old. I never expected that they would develop and grow to win a state championship. It just shows that you never know how kids are going to grow mentally and physically. However, it does help to have an incredible coach that gives direction and a belief that you can be a winner. Keep an eye on Josh Gibson. He is only 39 years old and is a rising star in Texas HS football. I would like for him to stay at PG; however, I can see him going on to bigger and better opportunities.
  3. Texas Tech was the only Big 12 school to offer him....the rest told him he was too small. He is 6'3" and 200 pounds. I look for him to red-shirt in order to add more weight. He is a very good student in the classroom and works hard in the weigh room. I look for him to have success at Tech.
  4. They should wait until after all championship games are played before awarding all state.
  5. Like I said, he just has the "It" factor. The kid is a winner and is fun to watch.
  6. I don't know much about Manvel. There is just something about the Jones kid at QB for HP. I watched him the other night against Denton Ryan and the kid is a player. He made play after play against a team that I thought was more athletic than HP. He just seems to have the "It" factor.

    Friday Night Lights – State Semi Finals

    This is my last response to you because this has become futile. You have proven that you are a shallow individual. I get enjoyment out of Texas HS football. It is not a priority. My priority is my God and my family. I have always said you can learn about individuals through message boards and social media. You have definitely proven my point.

    Exactly, that was my next question. As my mother has said "You must get older to gain Wisdom".

    No one has said PG is "elite". They execute the plan and play discipline football. PG is not going to "Wow" you like some spread teams. It is a different brand of football. As far as Graham, they won their Region so that was who PG had to play. If Graham was in District 7, I honestly don't think they would had made the playoffs. I will say it again "This game will be won in the trenches".

    Evidently, you post on the FSSW app because this is the type of juvenile posts that are prevalent on that site. With that being said, it is obvious WOS has a great team and tradition. I am not going to comment on all of the non-sense that you have posted on this thread. I will say that if WOS does not control the line of scrimmage on both sides, then it could be a long day. I have seen film on the WOS offensive line and I have seen bigger and quicker kids that the PG front 7 has handled this season. I know "WOS is fast" so is Texarkana AR High and others that PG beat. If you don't know, AR High won the Class 6A State Track Championship last year. Those kids play football too and were fast, but they got beat as well. In addition, this entire game is on Youtube. PG has heard the same comments each week that you are spouting. Before you comment about the WOS stopping the Wing T, PG runs more of a hybrid. There is a difference or they would not be playing their 16th game of the year. I expect this to be a close game and low scoring because both teams have great defenses. Good luck and hopefully both teams come out injury free.

    I have driven by the steel plant a few times this football season and each time I think back to when that place was booming. It is sad to see the negative impact that facilities such as Lone Star Steel can have on a community when they shutdown. I did stop in Daingerfield and eat at Outlaws BBQ for the first time. Very nice place. Also, looking forward to the book. As I have said before, lots of good memories during the 80s following the Tigers during the playoffs.

    PG is not going to be the fastest team. They have beat teams that were overall faster than them.....AR High, LE, and Atlanta are a few. However, they have bought in to the system and play as a team really well. They do not make a lot of mistakes. The key to their success is their line play. They have dominated both sides of the line throughout the season. In addition, they are a Senior lead team with several kids getting the chance to play at the next level. The only D1 football recruit is Xavier Benson. He has committed to Texas Tech as a LB. WR Carson Cox has committed to play baseball at Wichita State. The other 5 to 6 players have been offered by several D2 schools. The best lineman is #77 Nick Gavriel. His Hudl highlights are worth checking out. If he was 3 to 4 inches taller, he would be getting visits from D1 schools. One name to watch over the next upcoming seasons is #40 DE Landon Jackson. He is a 6'6" Freshman and has started at DE all season. He leads the team in sacks and has a high motor. He possibly could outgrow football because his Dad is 6'10" and has played some pro basketball in Europe . The kid is a great athlete. Interesting note: If PG wins Friday, then the three Texarkana, Texas high schools (Liberty Eylau and Texas High) would have each won a state championship in football and baseball. In addition, Texarkana AR High has also won a state championship in football and baseball as well. There are not very many places with a population of less than 70,000, that can make that claim.

    Brewster joining Fisher at A&M

    East Texas recruiting just got tougher for Texas and the other schools with Traylor now at Arkansas. I read a post that Arkansas' current roster with Texas HS recruits is only 11% of their total football roster; look for that to significantly increase. The reason being is because Bielema only signed 15 kids from Texas in the last 5 years. I have a feeling Texas fans will look back and see Herman letting Traylor go as a mistake. I will add that Morris to AR will be a better hire than Fisher to Aggie. I do not see Fisher making the connection with the Texas HS coaches like Morris.

    Friday Night Lights – Week 8

    Celina beat Caddo Mills 34-28. Celina has lost to Argyle and Liberty Christian of Argyle. In regards to Gilmer, I was there last Friday night for the PG game. This was one of the best HS games that I have ever seen in person. The loss was Gilmer's first district game loss at home in 17 years. That is an impressive stat for a HS football team. Gilmer is still very good; however, they have lost to Carthage and Texarkana Pleasant Grove. PG has a very physical and dominant offensive line which translates well for a running team. In addition, they are very good on defense with some play makers. I look for these two teams to meet again deep in the playoffs.

    Friday Night Lights – Week 7

    Texarkana Pleasant Grove at Gilmer is a big game for East Texas Friday night. The winner of this game will probably win district. Do not be surprised if Gilmer loses this game. PG has a really good team this year with potentially 3 D1 players. This should be a great game.
