2013 7 on 7 State Championships Day One Recap

LEANDER - Day one of the 2013 Adidas Texas State 7 on 7 Championships went off without a hitch despite the challenges of a new location, the Board and Directors once again did a fantastic job of putting on a great event for athletes, spectators and media alike. Here's a quick rundown of the action pool by pool.

POOL A

The story of the day was the outstanding play by Dallas Episcopal who put on an offensive show averaging over 50 points a game in pool play in rolling through the pool. Converted OL Brock Anglin at 6'6 was simply unstoppable as he showed nimble feet and incredibly soft hands. Houston Westbury Christian may have one of the fastest teams in the entire tournament and they put together a solid first day to advance.

POOL B

Fort Worth All Saints, who was a late addition to this pool got off to a bit of a rocky start falling behind Crane 13-0 in their opening game. However, QB Foster Sawyer got the Saints on the same page, knocking off Crane 33-27. They finished with a 2-1 mark and the top seed in the pool. This group came down to a tiebreaker scenario and the fact that All Saints played a triple overtime marathon with McGregor contributed to them winning the three way tie. White Oak, making their first trip to the State Tournament and missing two key players managed the second spot by virtue of their head to head win over McGregor.

Fort Worth All Saints 33 Crane 27

White Oak 46 McGregor 33

McGregor 62 Fort Worth All Saints 56 3OT

White Oak 47 Crane 28

Fort Worth All Saints 31 White Oak 20

McGregor 20 Crane 19

POOL C

Cameron Yoe has to be considered one of the tournament's bigger disappointments posting a 1-2 mark in a tough pool. The Yoemen falling to a Houston Kinkaid squad who was missing TE Mavin Saunders (left after game one with an injury) has to be a tough pill to swallow. Argyle was outstanding going 3-0 in what many considered a difficult pool WR Ian Sadler had a monster afternoon and proved to be a tough cover. Give credit to Kinkaid who really showed some depth and grit going 2-1 after losing Saunders.

Argyle 33 Cameron Yoe 26

Houston Kinkaid 38 Eastland 31

Argyle 35 Eastland 14

Houston Kinkaid 26 Cameron Yoe 20

Argyle 33 Houston Kinkaid 27

Cameron Yoe 42 Eastland 27

POOL D

There were few teams as dominating as Navasota was on day one, the Rattlers were only challenged in their third and final game by a strong Ingleside squad 39-34. Navasota's speed and offensive weapons will be hard to contain in bracket play. Ingleside made a solid accounting of themselves as well and showed they'll be a tough out on Friday. Wills Point really struggled getting their doors blown off in two of their three contests.

Ingleside 28 Coleman 20

Navasota 64 Wills Point 13

Navasota 38 Coleman 21

Ingleside 30 Wills Point 27

Coleman 52 Wills Point 14

Navasota 39 Ingleside 34

POOL E

East Bernard started the day off incredibly strong pitching a rare 7 on 7 shutout in their 41-0 win over Glen Rose to start the day out. The Brahmas did get tested in their final matchup as upstart Canton gave them all they wanted before falling 21-20. East Bernard isn't the flashiest 7 on 7 team out there but they just know how to win and they've got playmakers all over the field. They will be a tough out in bracket play.

Canton 41 Alpine 31

East Bernard 41 Glen Rose 0

East Bernard 35 Alpine 18

Canton 27 Glen Rose 13

Alpine 45 Glen Rose 34

East Bernard 21 Canton 20

POOL F

As expected Celina was in total control from the jump in this pool, the Bobcats just do 7 on 7 so well. They are a really difficult team to beat and they showed it today with three wins of over 14 points. What's funny is most Celina folks don't think their team played all that well! QB Nathan Elliot orchestrates things extremely well, we could very well see our first ever back to back 7 on 7 Champion. Somerset's offense was clicking on all cylinders averaging over 33 points per game as they locked up the second spot. Abilene Wylie was quite disappointing going 0-3 as their offense sputtered all day.

Celina 31 Abilene Wylie 14

Somerset 42 Salado 32

Salado 38 Abilene Wylie 19

Celina 45 Somerset 31

Somerset 28 Abilene Wylie 13

Celina 43 Salado 21

POOL G

Midland Christian was a dominating 3-0 on the day as they didn't win a game by less than 18 points. If there is a sleeper for Friday, they may be it. Lorena got off to a really slow start dropping a 40-14 decision to Midland Christian, but the Leopards showed why they are such a consistent winner with a rebound effort winning their next two games with relative ease.

Bandera 39 Boyd 20

Midland Christian 40 Lorena 14

Lorena 35 Bandera 12

Midland Christian 27 Boyd 7

Midland Christian 36 Bandera 18

Lorena 35 Boyd 26

POOL H

Stephenville QB Jarrett Stidham was the darling of the day as a large media throng gathered to interview him at the conclusion of the 'Jackets day. It was a gathering for good reason as he showed why he may be the top QB in the state in his class. Stephenville did get a huge test in their second game with a very talented Fairfield squad winning a hotly contested overtime game against Fairfield 43-42. I wonder if Fairfield let that loss affect them in their final game as they were shut out by Melissa 27-0, the Cardinals who won the 2011 title were quite impressive after their opening loss to Stephenville.

Fairfield 48 Edna 7

Stephenville 49 Melissa 27

Melissa 50 Edna 18

Stephenville 43 Fairfield 42 OT

Stephenville 33 Edna 6

Melissa 27 Fairfield 0

POOL I

College Station who is playing for the only title they can win, played like a team on a mission rolling to a 3-0 record. The Cougars have a lot of talent and it showed on Thursday. After getting off to a great start with a blowout win over Crandall, Yoakum faded in their final two games to move to the consolation bracket. The loss to Bangs had to hurt because based on the first two games, most though Yoakum would take care of the Dragons.

College Station 39 Bangs 20

Yoakum 47 Crandall 26

Bangs 26 Crandall 24

College Station 49 Yoakum 21

Bangs 46 Yoakum 38

College Station 19 Crandall 12

POOL J

In what most thought would be a marquee matchup between Gilmer and LaMarque turned into a relatively pedestrian game as Gilmer kept the Cougars at arm's length throughout in a 27-14 victory. Gilmer's defense was the story of this pool as that group led by Texas A&M commit Josh Walker allowed just 32 points in three pool games. Gilmer's offense will need a bit more consistency in bracket play as they stakes get higher. Give it up for Wellington who in three previous trips to state had won just a single game, the Skyrockets were just a point or two away from possibly playing in the championship bracket.

Gilmer 27 LaMarque 14

Rockdale 13 Wellington 12

Gilmer 20 Rockdale 6

Wellington 26 LaMarque 21

Gilmer 39 Wellington 12

Rockdale 39 LaMarque 21

POOL K

It's hard to think of a team who put out a more impressive three game performance than Graham as the Steers were flat out dominating in pool play. Graham opened the day blasting Jasper 60-27 and didn't let up drilling a good Boerne squad 41-18 before cruising to a 39-26 win over Crockett to close the day. List Jasper among the big disappointments as the Bulldogs were a dismal 0-3. Boerne made the winners bracket despite playing without their QB who will miss the entire junior season with a torn labrum.

Boerne 32 Crockett 19

Graham 60 Jasper 27

Graham 41 Boerne 18

Crockett 33 Jasper 20

Boerne 21 Jasper 14

Graham 39 Crockett 26

POOL L

Burnet showed they'll be a contender to win it all with a strong 3-0 effort in this pool. The real story here was the battle for second place as Kountze threw a big monkey wrench into things with a 26-25 win over Booker to close the day out. Booker, Kaufman and Kountze all finished at 1-2, based on total points scored tiebreaker Booker advanced to the championship bracket with Kaufman by virtue of their win over Kountze got third in the pool.

Burnet 47 Booker 37

Kaufman 21 Kountze 6

Booker 27 Kaufman 21

Burnet 41 Kountze 13

Kountze 26 Booker 25

Burnet 34 Kaufman 26

POOL M

Tyler Chapel Hill's athleticism won the day over Wimberley in the pool finale. The Bulldogs trailed Wimberley 27-14 but rallied for an impressive 34-33 victory. Wimberley did manage wins in their first two games so they move on to the championship bracket as well. Port Isabel who was missing their QB really struggled on offense scoring just 37 points in their three games.

Tyler Chapel Hill 41 Dublin 20

Wimberley 20 Port Isabel 13

Tyler Chapel Hill 33 Port Isabel 6

Wimberley 44 Dublin 25

Tyler Chapel Hill 34 Wimberley 33

Dublin 38 Port Isabel 18

POOL N

Give it up for Sonora who really impressed posting a 3-0 record in a pool full of tough 3A competition. But the story from this pool was Carthage who after getting off to an impressive start laid a giant egg in their final two games. Carthage just didn't seem to have the energy they had in the first game and the loss to LaGrange (their first of the summer) seemed to take a little starch out of the Bulldogs. It'll be interesting to see how they respond being in the consolation bracket on Friday.

Carthage 32 Gatesville 0

Sonora 25 LaGrange 20

LaGrange 38 Carthage 27

Sonora 24 Gatesville 21

Sonora 21 Carthage 20

LaGrange 40 Gatesville 6

POOL O

Brownwood hasn't gotten a lot of the publicity this summer they usually get, but folks probably should pay some attention to the Lions who had a strong 3-0 effort today. Offensively, the Lions were clicking on all cylinders and their defense got stops when they needed it the most. Anna had a great offensive day, but the Coyotes couldn't get any stops as they scored no less than 25 points in all three games and wound up with an 0-3 record.

Brownwood 40 Anna 32

Bellaire Episcopal 48 Mexia 12

Bellaire Episcopal 41 Anna 33

Brownwood 33 Mexia 12

Mexia 37 Anna 25

Brownwood 34 Bellaire Episcopal 26

POOL P

Springtown sophomore QB Landry Turner continues to impress as Springtown's offense racked up big numbers en route to a 3-0 mark. The Porcupines did get a test from Rice Consolidated in the opening game, but POJO pulled away from the Raiders in 41-27 win.

Grandview 20 Iowa Park 19

Springtown 41 Rice Consolidated 27

Rice Consolidated 20 Grandview 13

Springtown 33 Iowa Park 24

Springtown 32 Grandview 19

Rice Consolidated 45 Iowa Park 28
