No disrespect to the rest of the nation, but the best high school football in the country is found in the great state of Texas.
On Friday night the Vista Ridge Wolves from Colorado Springs, Colo., came into their contest against the Borger Bulldogs with a lot of hype due to an undefeated 6-0 record and a number one ranking in 3A in the state of Colorado.
But from the opening kickoff to the final quarterback kneel down, the Bulldogs proved the top ranking in Colorado just is not that impressive in Texas, as the Bulldogs came away with the dominating homecoming win 32-20 at Bulldog Stadium.

Over the past ten years, Canadian has been one of the toughest places in the state to get a win and a place that has been unkind to the West Texas High Comanches.
There is no question winning in Canadian is still going to be tough, but there is a feeling in Stinnett that the Comanches are good enough this season to go into the Eastern Texas Panhandle and come away with a big win over the Canadian Wildcats, putting themselves in one of the driverâ€™s seats for one of the three District 1-1A Division I playoff spots and potentially a district title.
On Friday night, the Sanford-Fritch Eagles will attempt to take their season record to 4-4 and their District 1-2A Division II mark to 4-0 when they host the Dimmitt Bobcats.
Through district play, the Eagles have had no difficulty finding the end zone, averaging 38 points over the past three games while only allowing 15 points a game over the same stretch.
In last weekâ€™s win over Amarillo Highland Park, the Eagles defense dominated the Hornets offense by causing three turnovers and limiting the Hornets to 150 yards of total offense.
