Dr Pepper Game of the Week: Week 7

The Dr Pepper Game of the Week for Week 7 may be the game of the week across the entire state of Texas!

The 6-0 Throckmorton Greyhounds, ranked #1 in the state by every publication that ranks 6-man football and #1 in the nation by MaxPreps.com, host the #4 Crowell Wildcats (5-1) in a crucial District 8-6M Div. I battle.

Throckmorton has won 17 straight games against Crowell going back to the Wildcats' last win in 1991. The series is 7-0 since both teams switched to 6-man football in 2004, but they didn't play in 2010 or 2011 so this is only the second meeting for any of the current players.

Last season the Greyhounds beat Crowell 80-50, also in our Game of the Week.

The loser of this game will have to beat Knox City, ranked #8 by "Dave Campbell's" and #12 by SixManFootball.com, just to make the playoffs, so there's more than just playoff seeding on the line.

Check back all week to hear from players and coaches from both sides, and tune in Friday at 10:30 for extended highlights of the Dr Pepper Game of the Week!
