This is a big game for both teams comming up this Friday. This could very well either clear up the playoff picture or shake it up a bit. District 13 1A is still holding down the middle of the Divison II rankings (Dave Campbells Texas High School Football rankings anyways) with Milano #5(3-0), Burton #6(2-1), & Granger #7(3-0). With a win against Burton, Granger would be one-step closer on playing for a district championship the following week against Milano in Granger. They have already clinched no worse than 3rd. Burton has already lost to Milano in a close game, but will either be the #2 or #3 team depening on Fridays' outcome vs Granger.
Also, I know both Granger & Burton have had some key injuries, but guys have been stepping up, & both are continuing to win. Granger has been without 2 Senior starting running backs for most of the season, along with 2 starting Senior lineman that are still out. Just look at our sideline on Friday & they are pretty big guys(physically) we are missing. In my opinion, Friday's game will come down to turnovers, but I still think Burton has too much speed for Granger at this point with our injuries. But I guess that's why they play the game.
Good luck to both teams on Friday for a good & injury free game. Go Lions!!!
