Edna Football Advances In Playoffs

Edna football won its bi-district playoff despite completing just one pass. It was a 21-yard td pass from Reese Orsak to Ahmad Callis. Despite that lone completed pass, the Cowboys put up 455 yards total offense and 61 points in beating Palacios. Edna ran the ball hard, with Kenny Haynes rushing for 196 yards and four touchdowns. That ground game and a strong defense have taken the Cowboys to a 10-1 record. I asked Edna head coach Jerry Long how impressed he was with his offense. “We want to get a fast start every week.We did that and got up on them real quick and were able to get a lot of kids into the game. For that to happen in a playoff game is real exciting, even got some of our JV kids in the game late in the game.”
Edna football, on to the 3A division one area playoffs.

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Michigan were at the top of the College Football Playoff rankings Tuesday night, marking the first time in the five-year history of the postseason system that the same teams held the first four spots for three straight weeks.

Unlike last week, there was a little movement in the top 10. Central Florida moved up two spots to No. 9. The Knights became the first team from outside the Power Five conference to be ranked in the selection committee’s top 10.

Georgia remained No. 5, followed by Oklahoma at sixth. LSU remained seventh, Washington State held at 8 and Ohio State stayed at 10th.

No. 11 was Florida, which could help the Gators secure a New Year’s Six bowl bid. Penn State is 12th.
