This week’s high school football schedule has anticipation growing for several big district games in the area. On tap Friday night, its unbeaten Timpson at unbeaten No. 3 state-ranked Joaquin. Both are playoff bound, with the winner taking over sole possession of first in the district and the inside trek to a district championship. Center Broadcasting will have live coverage of that game as our Shelby County Game of the Week on Q-100, KQBB-FM. Another key match-up has Alto at San Augustine, as they're tied atop the district standings. Other games have Grapeland at Shelbyville; Garrison at Frankston; and Saturday night, it’s homecoming in Tenaha as the Tigers take on Evadale as they battle it out for first-place. We’ll have the play-by-play of the Tenaha-Evadale game Saturday night on Q-100, KQBB-FM. The No. 22 state-ranked Center Roughriders have a bye.
A programming note, there will be a special 30 minute “bye-week” show for Rider fans at 7 Friday night on KDET, as Chris Watlington will host the program.
