PREVIEW

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."
