4th grade six-man championship (Cougar Bowl IV). A group saw
the website and have formed a 4th grade recess flag six-man
league. They are actually even using real Texas teams... see
the rules and the results of league play
MAKES IT OFFICIAL - The Lometa Hornets, who last
played six-man in 1993 voted last week to drop back down.
Lometa reached the quarterfinals in '93, falling to eventual
champion Panther Creek.
FORFEITING DISTRICT GAMES - Moran has elected to
forfeit their district games and play a JV schedule though
the rest of the district. Some teams will be playing a few
varsity players in limited action in some instances. It is
all fairly confusing, but for ranking purposes, I will be
considering those games as JV.
BLANCA CANCELS SEASON - Sierra Blanca has announced
that they will not play any football games this season. The
Vaqueros had forfeited all of their games so far.
EX PLAYING BIG AT WTAMU - Adam St. Clair, a former star
at Lazbuddie, is the leading tackler for the West Texas A&M
Buffaloes. St. Clair has 21 solo tackles, as well as 36 assists
and an interception. The Buffs are 2-4 and face TAMU-Commerce
this weekend. They also reassigned their head coach yesterday,

TEARING IT UP AT DARTMOUTH - Gordon's Lyle Campbell, who
led the Longhorns to the 1999 state six-man title, has been
big on defense for the Big Green after three games. Dartmouth
is currently 1-2 after a win at the famous Yale Bowl this

of Yale's 300th anniversary. I hope to have some accurate
statistics on Lyle soon, as the school's website is not quite
DAVIS TO GO SIX-MAN - Add Ft. Davis to the list of six-man
schools next season. The board voted 7-0 to join the ever-growing
ranks of six-man.
FORFEITS TWO GAMES - It has been reported to sixmanfootball.com
that the Follett Panthers have had to forfeit two games (Happy,
Greenville Christian) this season due to using an ineligible
player. The player in question apparently is ineligible due
to the parent-resident rule. It does not effect their ranking
because the games were actually played. Their record has been
changed to reflect the forfeits.
MAKES A DIFFERENCE (10/5)- Be sure to catch this weekend's
High School Xtra on Fox Sports Southwest, as Aquilla coach
Benny Weaver has been named this week's "Coach That Makes
