Dallas Skyline update Part-2 (full Texas version) ...

Well your favorite school with potentially 4 gopher recruits is rolling into the Texas high school playoffs.

HERE (this is worth watching!) is a nice video from a couple weeks ago prior to their game with district rival Carter. I didn't know at the time but Carter was riding something like a 33 game district win streak (wow) and this was a statement game that Skyline won going away.

Skyline finished the season 9-1 and #23 in state, lost only to a ranked Arlington Bowie team that they held to only 17 points (Bowie's lowest output all season). Their most recent game actually ended with the Raiders ending their 21 quarter streak of no touchdowns allowed. But they still won 52-6.

The big offensive playmaker Troy Stoudermire (pictured right) will try to lead The Raiders past Tyler Lee (5-5) in the 1st round and if they should be so lucky as to earn this road victory they will face what looks to be the #1 seed Allen (10-0 and #4 in all of Texas) in round 2.

In other Texas recruits news...

Houston Lamar #24 in state- home of TE commit Eric Lair is also in the 5A playoffs. Lamar (9-1) will take on Aldine (4-6) in their first round matchup.

Texarkana Liberty-Eylau - home of RB LaMichael James whom the gophers are pursuing. Liberty-Eylau is the defending 3A state champs and will enter the playoffs trying to defend their title.
