For another successful summer, Lubbock ISD teams will be making their trek to College Station for the state 7-on-7 tournament.
With the Lubbock ISD teams coming in Estacado and Coronado, they are not the only team heading to Aggieland on June 29-30.
Levelland, who will be making their fourth straight appearance, also qualified for the state tournament. The Lobos are placed in Pool E with 4A D1 state champion Carthage, a tough challenge coming from Gatesville and Freeport Brazosport.
The Lobos have lost firepower with a record-setting quarterback in Nick Gerber, but brother Chris and Zack Estrada will be one of the key players to look for in 2017 for the Lobos.
Estacado, who qualified from Snyder, are engineered by quarterback Bo Sims, wideouts Ashton Williams and Donald Young. The defensive leadership from Dre Conwright and Amarjae Thornton was impressive in the SQT in Snyder.
The Matadors will be facing off against Bay City, Deweyville and Giddings, who is a similar image to Estacado and will be the toughest test in Pool I.
With Coronado defeating Estacado en route to a state berth in the SQT in Lubbock, Qua Gray led the charge for the Mustangs while returning running back Jarrod Compton turned in solid performances in Lubbock and are poised to do the same in College Station.
The Mustangs have tough competition ahead of them, grouped with 6A D2 champ DeSoto, East Texas power Longview and Houston power Pearland.
Play kicks off Thursday at Veteran’s Memorial Park in College Station.
