Wimberley is balanced on offense and averages 38 points a game. The Texans tackle Taylor Robertson is 6-7 300 pounds and has already won two 6 Man State Titles with the home school San Marcos Area Christian Competitors.

Book it, Westlake ruled 5A during the 90's, Lake Travis rules now, and Wimberely will rule for years to come. The Texans are another West Austin juggernaut in the making. Argyle plays in their second state title game, not bad for a school that has existed since 2001.

: Waco Midway (13-2) vs. Lake Travis (14-0)

When: 8 p.m. Friday

Midway starts 5 seniors on the offensive line and knocked off Denton Ryan and Tyler John Tyler en route to the Title game. Lake Travis has won 4 titles with 3 different coaches. No Texas school has ever won 5 in a row. Baker Mayfield of Lake Travis has thrown for 44 TDs and with only 5 picks and over 3,500 yards.

Lake Travis has won 4 State Titles and is 76-3 in the last 5 years. If you're a senior at Lake Travis you've never known a football season that didn't end in a State Championship. But the job market sucks so don't get ahead of yourself. Midway has a SMU commit Shakiel Randolph at linebacker he's also a 4.0 student. He's smarter and more athletic than you are. Deal with it.
