Staffer give updates, predictions going into third week of play

After two weeks of district play McCallum, LBJ, and Cedar Creek are all tied for first in district with two wins a piece. Both LBJ and McCallum have the same overall record of three and two on the year which means they stand tied atop of District 26-5A. This fact looms large as of right now because the next game for both teams will be against each other after both teams will be coming off of a much needed bye week.

LBJ vs McCallum is a game that decides the outcome in the district almost every year; I think this year will be just the same. LBJ has played a much harder schedule to start district play than McCallum has, beating last years 3rd and 4th place finishers Bastrop and Reagan. If LBJ were to get by with a win against McCallum they would most likely win district, as their only remaining test would be unproven Cedar Creek. In all fairness McCallum has not been tested in district so far facing only Lanier and Crockett, who have been falling behind in recent seasons. The dark horse in the fight for first place is going to be Bastrop with a record of three and two overall but suffered a district opening loss to LBJ. The district is wide open but the the LBJ vs McCallum game on Oct 8th at House Park will go a long way in deciding the district champion.
