Centex Clash – Lake Travis vs Cibolo Steele

A Class 4A Division I, Region IV game being played this weekend looks like it could decide the regional championship – Austin Lake Travis vs Shertz Cibolo Steele, Friday night in San Marcos on the campus of Texas State University.

Austin Lake Travis, the defending 4A state champion comes in with an 11-0 record and the top quarterback prospect in the state (and many say the nation) Garrett Gilbert (41 TD passes). In addition, the Cavaliers’ defense has sacked opposing QBs an amazing 45 times, led by Harry Hatch with 8 of his own. The stats are impressive across the board, but they really haven’t been tested this season. That will change with Friday’s game against Cibolo Steele.

The Cibolo Steel Knights come into the game with just one blemish (10-1) a 37-27 loss against a very tough Kerrville Tivy squad. They are led by the duo of QB Jacob Trevino (20 TD passes) and RB Malcolm Brown (10+ yards per carry), as well as several excellent receivers. The Knights are a very strong and very fast team that can take advantage of weakness on either side of the ball.

So will Malcolm Brown run over the Lake Travis defense or will Garrett Gilbert knock down a Cibolo defense that has notched 17 interception and 19 sacks? That will be determined Friday night at 7:30 in San Marcos.

  1. Haven’t been tested? Maybe you should should
    take a look at LT’s preseason schedule compared
    to CB’s.

  2. CB’s preseason scheduled included 3 5A Teams. One victory against Stevens, who just defeated perennial 5A powerhouse Converse Judson. And 27-4A was arguably the best 4A Division in the State. 4 Playoff Team, and all still in it. Should be a great game.

  3. Almost everyone has Lake Travis picked to win this game on their way towards another State Championship, but not me.

    I think Cibolo Steele will win this game, because they’ve been playing playoff caliber teams all year long. They will have to play a flawless defensive game and force a few turnovers, but I think the Knights are up to the challenge.

    If your a big fan of debating high school football, hit up the Lone Star Gridiron forums (click on my name for the link).

  4. haven’t been tested? are you kidding me? LT has played Westlake, Cedar Park, Westwood, and Evangel Christian Academy in Shreveport Louisiana. Lake travis is just as battle tested in my opinion.

  5. Havent been tested/challenged? Correct me if Im wrong…but Westlake, Cedar Park, and Westwood are all 5A teams that LT defeated. In addition, LT defeated Evangel Christian Academy who holds multiple state championships. Guess we can let tomorrow nights game decide. Go LT!!

  6. I’m enjoying my state championship ring right now. After beating a few really good 5A teams, I think we have been thoroughly tested.
