Lake Travis in Westlake | District 26-6A | Chaparral Stadium

The annual clash between Lake Travis and Westlake is for the district title, but that has nothing to do with playoff positioning. Westlake (9-0, 6-0) finished first seed in Division 2 for 26-6A while Lake Travis (8-1, 6-0) will be the first seed in Division 1.

These teams did not play last year due to the Lake Travis program’s COVID-19 protocol. Westlake could do without quarterback Cade Klubnik for the fourth game in a row as he rests his injured left shoulder. It is also the last game of the regular season for Westlake head coach Todd Dodge, who will retire at the end of the season.

Senior backup quarterback Christian Edgar threw for 706 yards and 10 touchdowns while rushing for 455 yards and eight touchdowns. The Cavaliers have won six straight wins since their out-of-district loss to Rockwall. Junior quarterback Bo Edmundson had 1,955 yards and 25 touchdowns.

Round Rock at Vandegrift I District 25-6A I Stade Monroe

Vandegrift has won at least a share of the district title and can win it directly against Round Rock. The Vipers are looking for a perfect third regular season in the past four years.

Last year, Vandegrift saw his 21-game winning streak in the district come to an end with a 28-21 overtime loss to Round Rock. The Dragons are also looking to clinch the top seed in Division 1 in 25-6A and avoid a first-round game at Lake Travis. Round Rock will need a Cedar Ridge win and loss to Hutto to make this happen.

Brenham to Rouse I District 13-5A D2 I Bible Stadium

It’s a win-win game in District 13-5A as Brenham and Rouse meet at Bible Stadium. The Raiders (8-1, 5-0) are looking for consecutive undefeated District seasons after going 1-5 in 2019.

Junior quarterback Mason Shorb threw for 2,697 yards and 36 touchdowns. His favorite target is Jalen Becera, who has 53 catches and 14 touchdowns. Rouse handed the Cubs their only district loss last season – 26-19 to Brenham.

Taylor in LBJ | District 13-4A D1 | Nelson Field

LBJ are looking for a perfect regular season against Taylor on Friday night. The Jaguars are ranked No.1 in Division 4A 1 and are looking to take the next step after losing in the state semifinals in last year’s playoffs.
