HOW: The Trojans qualified during the Westlake SQT (June 14), defeating Bowie in the Semifinal. This is history in the making – Anderson High’s first-ever qualification for the State 7s tourney.
HOW: The Hippos qualified during the Warrior SQT (June 7) by defeating host school Westwood in a 2 point game. This marks the fourth consecutive time Hutto has qualified for the State 7s tourney (2016-present)
LAKE TRAVIS CAVALIERS
HOW: The Cavaliers qualified during their host SQT (May 25) by defeating Hendrickson in the Semifinal. According to LT Football guru Jay Plotkin, this makes 16 straight years the Cavs’ qualified. One notable, UT commit QB Hudson Card (’20) will be away for the Nike Opening tourney – leaving the wheel to future D1 QB Nate Yarnell (’21).
HOW: LBJ qualified by landing one of four spots at the Corpus Christi SQT. To our knowledge, this is a program first for the Jags. With a strong core of skill ‘Fenner Boys’, they will be fun to watch. ATH Latrell McCutchin (’21) recently verbally committed to Alabama.
ROUND ROCK DRAGONS
HOW: The Dragons qualified during the Warrior SQT by defeating Stony Point in the Semifinal. Notable, they held off Westlake/Hendrickson to get to the Semis. This is the first trip to College Station since 2016 for Round Rock. Its a New Era or sorts, as QB Seth Ford (’21) takes full reign of the offense.
HOW: Vista Ridge defeated a red hot Westlake in the Lake Travis SQT Semifinal (May 25) to become one of the State’s first to qualify (at 6% chance given by fans to do so). This is the second straight year the Rangers’ qualified. This is also the beginning of a new era, as Kyle Brown (’21), son of the Rangers’ offensive coordinator, takes over as full time VR QB1.
HOW: The Chaps qualified during the River City SQT, securing one of the final State slots left – marking the 4th out of the past 5 years Westlake has qualified. What will be fun to watch is the 3 headed QB monster (Kirkland Michaux, Drew Willoughby and Cade Klubnik). All 3 would be likely starters on different teams headed into ’19, forming the deepest signal caller crew in CenTex.
