As the UIL shakes things up, we say good bye to the Boswell Pioneers, the Saginaw Rough Riders, the North Side Steers, and the Chisholm Trail Rangers. We would also like to extend a welcome to the Grapevine Mustangs, and the Lake Dallas Falcons. There will be plenty more news as this information disseminates.
Arlington’s most senior schools remain in a district essentially unchanged from the past two years.
Arlington High, Bowie, Lamar, Martin and Sam Houston will compete in District 4-6A and again be paired with Fort Worth Paschal, North Crowley and Weatherford.
The Young Women’s Leadership Academy, the Fort Worth school district’s first single-gender school, has been added and will compete in girls sports.
Class 6A includes schools with enrollments of 2,100 students and more.
Arlington Seguin will play in District 14-5A with four of Mansfield’s schools – Lake Ridge, Legacy, Summit and Timberview – and Lancaster, Red Oak and Waxahachie.
Aledo grouped with Johnson County schools
Aledo has been moved out of its alignment with Fort Worth schools and will move into District 8-5A, a league predominantly made up of schools in Johnson County.
The Bearcats will be joined their for the 2014-16 school years with Burleson, Burleson Centennial, Cleburne, Crowley, Everman, Joshua and Granbury.
Class 5A was formerly 4A the past two years and includes schools with enrollments between 1060-2099.
Aledo’s stay in District 7-4A the past two years was marked with controversy because of the Bearcats’ dominance.
The Bearcats marched through district by winning all seven games by an average score of 76-7 en route to the Class 4A Division II state title.
Dunbar and Grapevine in same district
The UIL divided Fort Worth’s 11 Class 5A schools into two districts.
The Fort Worth school district’s Carter-Riverside, Dunbar, Eastern Hills and Polytechnic will compete in District 6-5A with suburbia’s Grapevine, which dropped in classification, Lake Dallas and North Richland Hills Birdville.
District 7-5A is comprised of all Fort Worth schools, including Arlington Heights, North Side, South Hills, Southwest, Trimble Tech and Western Hills.

With only 8 teams left Coach Skinner and Craig Etheredge walk through Saturday’s Win over Frenship and discuss the State Quarterfinal game where we meet the Denton Guyer Wildcats for the 2nd time in as many years.
SWEETWATER — Xavier Turner hadn’t fumbled all season, but with Birdville driving in the fourth quarter and trailing Wolfforth Frenship by three points, a Frenship defender popped the ball out of the senior’s grip, turning a 13-yard run into a turnover.
“They hit him just right,” Birdville coach Jim Skinner said. “They hit the ball and knocked it out.”
But Turner would find redemption.
On the Hawks’ next possession, Turner scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to put Birdville (11-2) ahead with 2:12 left in the game Saturday night. The Hawks would stop previously unbeaten Frenship (12-1), hanging on for a 26-22 win to advance to the Class 4A Division I state quarterfinals, where they will play Denton Guyer.
A site hasn’t been confirmed yet, but North Texas’ Apogee Stadium is a possibility, Skinner said.
Turner, who entered Saturday averaging 10.42 yards per carry, finished with 130 rushing yards on 25 carries after being held under 30 yards in the first half.
“They were geared to stop him,” Skinner said. “But he came back, the offensive line picked it up in the second half, I thought, and we got after it.”
But Frenship’s focus on Turner during the first quarteropened things up for quarterback Will Hayward, both in running and throwing the football.
“They keyed on Xavier and gave me a chance to make some plays,” Hayward said. “I think most of their defensive game plan was focused on stopping the running back first, and that definitely opened some holes for us.”
Hayward found Sam Northey for a 19-yard touchdown pass with 6:25 left in the first quarter. He later ran it in from 9 yards out to give Birdville a 13-0 lead.
A 27-yard run from Ronald Awatt put Frenship within a touchdown just before the half, and a 16-yard pass from Trevor Eulenbach to Chandler Casey in the third quarter gave the Tigers the lead.
Turner’s fumble gave Frenship the ball back, and the Tigers were up 22-19 with around six minutes left. But a pair of incompletions by Eulenbach and a botched punt snap led to an 11-yard punt, setting Birdville up for its winning score.
About two weeks ago, Birdville running back Xavier Turner watched the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, Run Ricky Run, which chronicled the up and down career of former Texas and NFL running back Ricky Williams.
On Saturday, Turner got a call from Williams, offering him a scholarship to the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio.
“I had just watched his documentary a couple weeks ago, then, what do I know, he called me [Saturday] with an offer,” Turner said.
Williams, an assistant coach at UIW, was at Birdville’s game on Friday against Crowley. Turner rushed for a season-high 395 yards in a 34-18 victory. He had touchdown runs of 78, 59 and 98 yards.
It was the first offer for Turner, who leads Class 4A area players in rushing yards. Turner said he saw Williams before the game, but couldn’t quite recognize him.
“I was like, ‘I know him from somewhere. He looks so familiar. I know this guy from somewhere,’” he said. “Then he was like, ‘Hey what’s up, I’m Ricky Williams.’”
UIW recently moved to Division I, where it competes in the Southland Conference of the Football Championship Subdivision.
Turner will make a decision on college during the off-season.
“I’m just glad I had an opportunity to show out,” Turner said. “Honestly, I don’t know much about [UIW]. I’m just thankful I can get my education and school paid for.”
