Back in the 1980s and 1990s, the 5A football district in the Permian Basin area was nicknamed â€śThe Little Southwest Conferenceâ€ť due to the district being loaded with some of the top football programs in Texas.
This year. perhaps District 1-1A Division I needs to be called the â€śSEC Lightâ€ť due to having four of the five teams ranked inthe top 25 of TheOldCoach.com football poll and the fifth team just on the outside looking in.
Through their first two games of District 1-2A Division II play, the Sanford-Fritch Eagles have been able to prove they are a lot better than their 0-4 non-district mark by beating Tulia and getting a big win over Floydada last week.
Against the Whirlwinds, the Eaglesâ€™ offense was clicking on all cylinders racking up 346 yards on the ground while throwing for another 261.
Junior Colton Valle showed why he is considered one of the best running backs in the Texas Panhandle by scoring three touchdowns and rushing for 236 yards.
