Three teams in the 432 will be taking part in the state 7-on-7 tournament on June 28-29 in College Station for the opportunity for a state 7-on-7 title.
With no Division I teams that qualified for the state tournament, small schools carry Permian Basin hopes, aiming for a deep run and making noise in Aggieland.
One team that is one of the favorites to make a deep run is Andrews, led by quarterback Jace Keesee. The Mustang offense was stout in Snyder and look to repeat their performance from three weeks ago.
Andrews is placed in Pool O with Crandall, 3A power in East Bernard and Salado with play commencing at 2 p.m.
Andrews is not the only Permian Basin hopeful traveling to College Station this weekend, Alpine and Pecos, who qualified for the state tournament in Sonora, also will represent the Permian Basin well in their respective groups.
Alpine is grouped with Anna, Fairfield and Pleasanton in Pool A while Pecos will be facing off against 4A power El Campo, last year’s state finalist Somerset and Texarkana Pleasant Grove, who is loaded with athletes who are being looked at by D1 colleges.
Play begins on Thursday at Veteran’s Memorial Park for all three Permian Basin state hopefuls.
