STATE 7-ON-7: Dublin, Brady win their pools on Day 1 in College Station

Shay Easterwood

COLLEGE STATION — With 64 teams hitting the field on Day 1 of the Texas State 7-on-7 Championships, the picture became a bit clearer by day’s end, though not a single team was eliminated. 

All 32 teams in both the Division II and Division III tournaments were guaranteed a spot in the championship round, with Thursday’s pool play serving as a means to seed the entirety of both events at Veterans Park and Athletic Complex.

Big Country representatives Dublin and Brady had the biggest days among area teams, both of which won their pools to earn a No. 1 seed on Friday. 

The Division I competition (Classes 5A and 6A)  will get underway on Friday without a single Big Country team in the field.

7-ON-7 FOOTBALL: Ground-oriented, option-loving Winters nearly passes way to state tourney

On a typical Friday evening in the fall, the Winters football team may throw the ball five times — 10 if desperate measures are required.

The flexbone-based Blizzards under coach Matt McCarty have made their living on the ground, reaching the playoffs for two straight years via the triple option. 

Nonetheless, McCarty saw fit to include his team in the annual statewide 7-on-7 competition, a pass-only “touch” football game meant to hone high school passing games to a fine edge over the summer. 

It subsequently stunned nearly everyone in attendance Friday at McMurry University, coming within a victory of passing its way to the Division III state tournament in College Station.
