WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The third round of the high school football playoffs in Texoma ended the same way this season as it did last year.

Rider, Iowa Park and Holliday have advanced to the regional finals and similar to last year, they did it off some strong performances.

But the best came in the historic Rider vs Old High playoff matchup.

Jacob Rodriguez is the regional semifinal player of the week after an all-around stellar performance in the Raiders 56-20 win over Old High.

Rodriguez threw for 250 yards and four touchdowns Friday afternoon while running for another 123 yards and a score.

JRod had 373 total yards and 5 TD’s.

He was at the top of his game and that is why Rider is moving on.

Congratulations Jacob.
