The football game we’ve all been waiting for all season long for all the marbles in District 10-4A will be played this Friday at 7:30 pm when the state’s sixth-ranked 4A school, pre-season favorite and perennial district champion Highland Park (8-1, 6-0) play defending champion Rockwall-Heath (7-2, 5-1) at Highland Park.

The Hawks have overcome the loss last year of such standouts and now college players as Kendial Lawrence (Missouri), Austin Moss (Arkansas), Everett Gilbert (Montana State) and Drew Hollingshead (Houston).

Led by senior quarterback Kevin Rodgers, who’s completed 136 of 218 passes for 2,024 yards, 12 TDs and only five interceptions, the Hawks only losses came in their opening game against District 9-4A co-leader Sherman (8-1), 40-31,  plus to 10-4A rival Carrollton Newman Smith (7-2, 5-1), 28-14.

Other Hawks standouts have been offensive lineman and Oklahoma recruit Austin Woods, running backs Dorian Lawry and Jesse Irokwe, receivers Cameron Wilson and Ryan Peterson, kicker Trevor Pinkston and defenders Drew Baxter and Armondo Villa.

The high-scoring Scots only loss came against Class 5A power Coppell (8-1) early in the season, 41-20.

Led by quarterback Luke Woodley, who’s completed 182 of 251 passes for 2841 yards (fourth highest in the N. TX Area), 30 TDs and only four interceptions,  they have been undefeated in District 10-4A play since, exceeding 50 points in each of its six victories.

The Scots have the no. 2 Area 4-A offense, averaging 500 yards per game.

Scot receiver Chris Hipps is the leading receiver in Class 4-A with 61 catches for 1162 yards and 15 TDs.

If Highland Park wins the game, they will become the outright District 10-4A champion.

If Heath wins, there would be a three-way tie for first place, if Newman Smith beats powerful Richardson Pearce (6-3, 4-2) Friday night.

Regardless of who wins and loses, these four teams from District 10-4A will advance to the playoffs. Only four can progress into post-season play.

Rockwall (4-5, 2-4) will try to stop its three-game losing streak Friday night as it closes out its disappointing season at Greenville (5-4, 2-4).

Royse City (0-9, 0-6) will complete its rebuilding year by attempting to win its first game of the season at Carrollton’s winless R.L. Turner (0-9, 0-6).
