It starts with the Abilene High Eagles and Longview. The Eagles playing on Saturday for the 3rd week in a row. Abilene High and Longview played a great game in the 2010 season. Abilene High scored a late touchdown to force overtime... But the Loboes won it in overtime with a 2-point conversion... This year Longview is ranked 10th in the preseason poll. The Eagles start the year ranked 18th. They are set to play at Birdville.

District play starts in Class 2A, and 1 of the best matchups is in Bangs. The Dragons, picked 2nd in District 3, Division 1, and Merkel, who is picked to win the district play to open things up. Bangs won last year's game 12 to 8, but that was the only district game the Badgers lost in 2010. The winner could very well end up win the district championship.

Now to District 4-2A in Division 1. Breckenridge travels to Godley get things going in the district. Last year, the Wildcats beat the Buckaroos by 43 points on their way to a perfect regular season. That's the bad news for Breckenridge. The good news is that the Bucks didn't lose another district game. 2011 is the 2nd year of the Steve Freeman era, and you can expect Breckenridge to be improved over their 9-3 record from 2010.
