Irving vs. Keller Fossil Ridge, 7 p.m. Thursday Keller Athletic Complex

GameDay Information: A pre-game show hosted by Friday Night Gladiators, which broadcasts a live scoreboard show on Friday nights from 10 pm. to midnight on ESPN-FM (103.3) For more information, go to

Scouting Fossil Ridge: Panthers’ first-year head coach Tony Baccarini, the team's offensive coordinator last season,  replaces Hal Wasson (Southlake Carroll). The Panthers hope to repeat or surpass last year’s 10-2 success with many key players returning. Quarterback John Killion (2,273 yards and 31 TDs passing), running back James Russell (235 carries, 1,691 yards and 14 TDs) and Oklahoma commit defensive end R.J. Washington (seven sacks, 21 QB pressures) are exceptional leaders. The defense is led by linebacker Peyton Gonzales and Brandon Mahoney.


Scouting Irving: The Tigers hope aim to rejuvenate from last year’s winless season. They’ve got a talented quarterback in TCU commit Yogi Gallegos and some good genes in Winford Tennell, whose brother Adron signed with Oklahoma last year. There’s some impact talent in the line with 6-5 senior Matt Unger and running back Chuckie Jones. Hard to believe, but a once-dominant program with a respected coaching staff has lost 17 in a row after last week’s 31-13 loss to Arlington Lamar. In 2006, Fossil Ridge beat Irving, 42-7.
