THRALL, Texas — It's week two of the Texas high school football season and that means the KVUE Sports team is back to giving you the latest scores and highlights in the Austin area!
It also means we'll showcase one game as our Game of the Week, and the Thrall Tigers and Lexington Eagles take the honor in week two!

Thrall was scheduled to play its first game on Friday, Aug. 28, but the game was canceled after a member of the opposing team tested positive for COVID-19. Thrall scrambled to find a new opponent and did with Tomball Christian HomeSchool. The Tigers fell to Tomball, 26-8, on Saturday, Aug. 29.
Meanwhile, Lexington won its first game against West, 25-14. The Eagles possess one of the state's best-kept secret talents: junior running back Jarred Kerr. Kerr finished week one with more than 150 yards and a touchdown. Kerr has also been getting Division I looks with offers from Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas, Florida and Notre Dame.
"This past week, it happened, and right here, Sept. 1, was when they started contacting us," Kerr told KVUE. "The phone was definitely flooded and it's a little overwhelming answering all the questions, but a good overwhelming."
Kickoff for this game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. KVUE will update this story with score updates, and don't miss the highlights from this game in the 10 p.m. newscast!
