Welcome to 4 to Watch, where each week we preview four of the top high school football games in DFW.
Keller (5-0) vs. Southlake Carroll (5-0)
A matchup of two undefeated teams in 6A District 4. Keller has seen huge improvement from last fall's 6-5 finish. The Dragons have lost 5 games total over the last four seasons. A win for the Indians would be one of the biggest in school history.
Denton Ryan (4-1) vs. Burleson Centennial (5-0)
We go to 5A Division 1, with Denton Ryan at Burleson Centennial. The Centennial Spartans are undefeated and have won their last three games by a combined score of 177 to 10, and somehow they are not ranked! If they can pull off a win over #3 Denton Ryan, they'll be ranked.
Ryan has one loss, by one point.
This is a huge game in the District 3 title race. The winner picks up a huge head-to-head tiebreaker, with Aledo lurking at 4-2.
Saginaw Boswell (5-0) vs. North Crowley (5-0)
Game 3 is another matchup of undefeated 6A teams: Saginaw Boswell at #24 North Crowley.
It has been a breakout year for both programs. North Crowley has won this matchup two years in a row. Both teams have scored over 40 points in each of their last two wins.
Whoever can reign in the other team's offense will likely stay undefeated.
Mesquite Horn (4-2) vs. Mesquite (3-3)
Game 4 is a very tight race in 6A District 10, a matchup between Mesquite Horn and Mesquite.
Horn's only two losses came by a combined 7 points, but a loss is a loss and last week's defeat to Rockwall, by 3 points, puts a lot of pressure on the Jaguars in the district race.
On the flipside, the Skeeters are 3-3 in the district, currently fourth in the standings. This game is crucial towards keeping hopes of a playoff berth alive.
