as the weekend approaches a number of frog commits prepare with their teams for regular season championships and future play off games
cade mcconnell's (ot) choctaw squad took a drubbing last week from nationally ranked bixby, but rebounded tonight to beat muskogee football 49-32. the win pushes choctaw's season record to 5-2 and 3-1 in conference play
seth martion (ol) and everman 3-3 (2-1) travel to cleburne 3-3 (1-2). everman looks to be in good position to make the playoffs as they have already played aledo, are in a 3-way tie for second with mansfield timberview and burleson, and have a favorable closing schedule.
dj allen (ath) and gladewater 4-2 (3-0) have won 3 straight after a rough start of the season with big losses to gilmer and kilgore. they face jefferson 4-2 (1-1) . if gladewater can get through the next two weeks against jefferson and white oak it sets up a big district showdown with sabine in the final regular season game.
matthew golden (wr) and klein cain have recovered nicely since a brutal opening loss on nationally television to bridgeland. since that game cain has outscored opponents 3 to 1 and golden is the top receiver in the state. this week cain 5-1 (3-0) plays klein collins 2-4 (2-0) who struggled early, but is the only other undefeated team in the district. cain should win and put themselves in a position to win the district going away.
major everhart (rb/ath) and amarillo tascossa 5-1 (2-0) play caprock 2-4 (1-1) and caprock's struggles to score this year shouldn't bode well with the explosive tascossa team. with the other undefeated team in the district (coronado) playing amarillo tomorrow a win could put tascasso in the driver's seat for the district title.
ajay allen (rb/ath) and neville 5-1 (1-0) play at minden 2-4 (0-1) and things are headed to a very interesting finishing game against huntington
treven macalpine (dt) and saraland 6-2 (5-0) are at robertsdale 3-5 (1-4) . win this game and saraland gets to try to win the regular season title at home next week and based upon the way their defense has played this year there is a good chance that happens.
ja'dais richard (s) and west monroe 4-2 (2-0) play at west ouachita 2-5 (0-2) monroe has owned this district for some time, but they still have some work to do this year.
jaylon guilbeau (cb) and port arthur memorial 5-1 (3-0) play beaumont united 1-5 (1-2) . pa memorial has only given up 7 points in district play so far and when you consider that united's biggest point total this year is 19 in a loss to montgomery things look good for pa. they just don't want to get caught looking ahead to next week's match up with district co-leader baytown lee.
finally, joseph adedire (de) and mansfield summit 4-2 (3-0) play in the big game of the week for frog commits as they travel to colleyville heritage 5-1 (3-0) who is the district co-leader. summit traveled earlier in the year to austin to face westlake and one reason you play those types of games before district play is to prepare for this game tomorrow. defense has lead the way for summit so far this year.

finally, joseph adedire (de) and mansfield summit 4-3 (3-1) lost a heartbreaker at colleyville heritage 34-35. heritage avenged last year's playoff loss to summit in what has to be a disappointing loss for summit. 3 summit turnovers and a heritage punt return for a td put them behind but they rallied from 14 down only to get stopped on a 2-pt conversion attempt with less than 2 minutes to go in the game
the human highlight film who doubles as a frog recruit, aj allen, is missing this week as neville had a bye, one recruit's team finished their regular season with a championship win, a few others set themselves up for big district games, and unfortunately a couple of strings got broken
