Final Four setback can’t diminish Super Season

ABILENE—New Deal’s hand was loaded with a full house. With a big help from an Ace for a quarterback, the Lions stormed past San Saba, 35-6, December 14, in the Class 2A, Division I, semifinals.

“{Give} credit to them,” Armadillos’ head coach Jerod Fikac said. “Not on our kids—put that on me,” and, in a signature postgame statement, he added, “Our kids fought all season long; {they} have nothing to be ashamed of.” As accurate as a Spelling Bee champion: 14-1 record after winning three games in 2016-2017 combined, and going farther in the playoffs than anyone else in the school’s gridiron history.

New Deal—near Lubbock and now 15-0—was led on a 78-yard drive—at historic Shotwell Stadium—in the opening quarter by quarterback Jett Whitfield. On secondand-22 from the San Saba 26, he threw over the middle to D.K. Blaylock, and he ran in for a 7-0 lead with 3:59 to go in the first.

Final Four For the Ages

BROWNWOOD—Playing in an historic stadium, named for one of Texas’ high schools’ greatest coaches, the San Saba Armadillos enjoyed making their own history, December 6th, with a 31-17 win over De-Leon in the Class 2A, Division I, Region finals.

Head Coach Jerod Fikac, in a pulsating postgame address to his team, told them no football squad in school history had reached the state semifinals. That’s where this 14-0 bunch has landed. New Deal High, also unbeaten, and near Lubbock, is next up on Friday night at Shotwell Stadium—another gridiron shrine—in Abilene.

“The defense and the offensive line,” Fikac said, “have carried us all year, although they don’t get all the glory.”

Over Time, it’s the Dillos!

The San Saba Armadillos, who score more points than any of those Big 12 offensive powerhouses, needed 62 to beat Celeste, 62-56, in double overtime, November

30. The Dillos’ 13th win of the season moved them to the Region finals against DeLeon, Thursday, December 6th, at historic Gordon Wood Stadium in Brownwood.

San Saba needed a 21-point fourth quarter to get the contest with the Blue Devils into OT. And all eight of Eli Salinas’ touchdowns to remain unbeaten. It was Salinas who scored the game winner, but Carter Turner knocked down a Celeste pass to preserve the victory.
