THE UPDATE—THE GOOD NEWS & THE BAD

The long-awaited first weekend of high school football at the two largest classifications in Texas arrived on Thursday, and coincided with some good optics, and some that weren’t good. There were a handful of games in both 6A and 5A played on Thursday night, and many more over the weekend, but there were also more cancellations in all classifications. The most notable in one of the larger classes was in 5A, where perennial 5A Division I power Highland Park has had to cancel each of its first two games (including one against Westlake) due to a Covid outbreak at the school. There were other cancellations, and that includes a pair of forfeits in Class 4A Division I, where Paris High School is unable to play its first two District 7-4A D1 contests against Melissa and Anna. Since these are district contests, they will go into the books as forfeits葉he first of its kind we have seen this season. And they probably won’t be the last. Still, it’s good to see 6A and 5A football back in action again.

Listed below is the current statewide Top 10 rankings from Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Magazine, with these week’s scheduled games, as well as those that have been postponed or canceled.
