2020 Week 22 (Texas)

2020 Week 22 (Texas)

A very long 2020 season wound to a close. At least for me. And where most of my seasons end. It was at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The final four remaining games of the UIL championship slate were scheduled for Week 22 of the high school football season. There were, however, still two more days of Football in Week 23, however those games were in Michigan and without any real ability to get in to see any of them.

2020 Week 20 (Texas)

2020 Week 20 (Texas)

I’ve been busy now the last few weeks. So, aside from getting photos done, doing a little write-up on the games is a bit of a stretch. Also, since I was in Texas for work for two weeks meant that I didn’t really ‘travel’ for the games like I did with South Dakota, Mississippi, or the state finals of Week 18.

This week, knowing I was going to be in Texas, made getting to DFW an easier option. With the prospect of six games, made it worthwhile. With limited fans and AT&T Stadium generally unavailable, Globe Life Park, just down the street, has become the go-to venue in DFW. Continue reading “2020 Week 20 (Texas)”

2020 Week 2 (Texas)

2020 Week 2 (Texas)

I knew I would be in Texas this weekend. For a few weeks, I had planned to be in Texas this weekend. West Texas. For the Jayton Kickoff Classic. A three-day event of six-man football in the small outpost of Jayton. However, that event was cancelled and the originally scheduled games were cast off to the various home sites of their participants. So, no longer was I going to see two games Thursday, one Friday (after an initial cancellation), and five on Saturday. Instead, it would be one and one. And maybe Saturday if somehow at all possible.

2019 Week 18 (Texas)

2019 Week 18 (Texas)

After the games in Georgia. There was only one destination remaining: Texas. This was the 9th straight year I’ve traveled to Texas for the state finals. Tenth overall. I was going to say it’s where I’ve ended my year for the 9th straight time… however in 2014 I did see the Geico State Champions Bowl Series games at Boca Raton one time. Continue reading “2019 Week 18 (Texas)”

2014 Week 17 (Texas)

Week 17 (Texas)

I originally hoped to get something down earlier but the week between Texas and Florida was a bit full for certain obvious reasons.

Basically, Week 17 was part of a three week trip for games in Texas and Florida, as well as a Christmas spent in Fort Lauderdale with my girlfriend’s family. It also gave me the chance to clinch a few more states in my quest to visit every county in the country. However, this write-up is to summarize the Texas portion of the trip.
