Three things to chew while you await kickoffs this week

The pre-season is over.
It's time to play for real as the majority of Texas Panhandle teams open district Friday night. Here's three things to chew while you await kickoffs later in the week.

1. Hereford - Herd coach Don DeLozier is a Hereford native. He loves and appreciates the history of Herd football. How about this little fact? Hereford has rolled to a 5-0 nondistrict record entering District 4-4A play Friday against Abilene Cooper.
The last time the Whitefaces were 6-0? How about 1986 according to the Globe-News records.

2. Pampa vs. Randall - Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. These two teams are a combined 0-10 in nondistrict.
But think about this one.
With six teams involved in the District 3-4A race, and four teams making the playoffs, it's not out of the question to see a team with two wins in 3-4A qualify for the playoffs. Well, Pampa and Randall play Thursday night. One of the two teams will be 1-0.

3. Caprock vs. Palo Duro - This game is officially Parr Bowl III. Seth Parr of the Caprock Longhorns will coach against his dad, Steve Parr at Palo Duro.
This marks the third consecutive year the Parr's have coached against each other. Steve won the first one. Seth won last year.

Can you imagine coaching against your dad or son?

Has to be tough.

For what's it's worth, Seth's Longhorns have earned the nod as a contender for the district crown and a playoff berth. A trip to the playoffs would be the first for Caprock since 1975.
