Can Canadian do a three-peat?

The Canadian Wildcats have a chance this year to do something that hasn't been done in more than 70 years and that is win three straight state football titles.
The last time a Panhandle-area team did it was Amarillo High back in the mid-1930s, long before the days of three or more teams from a district in the playoffs.
The Wildcats will take their first step towards a possible three-peat Friday at 7 p.m. when they meet Wellington at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium in Canyon. The teams met last year in this same game with Canadian winning 55-20 at Pampa. That has been Wellington's only loss in two seasons.
The game is easily the marquee game of the weekend in Panhandle high school football. The Wildcats are 9-1 and state ranked while the Skyrockets are 10-0 and ranked No. 2 in Class 1A.
It will feature two of the area's top quarterbacks in Canadian's Brandon Robinson who has thrown for more than 5,400 yards and 73 touchdowns the last two seasons, and Wellington's Westin Williams who has accounted for more than 5,300 yards total offense and 74 TDs the past two years.
