Mesquite lost 22-14 last week.  That was a bummer.  It was a hard fought game by both teams, and Luke played really well.  They came up just short of the district title by losing to Longview by one score.

This week is the last regular season game and is even more important as they play Tyler Lee for the top seed in their divisional bracket.  Both teams are 3-1 in district, and whoever wins plays the lesser seed from the Dallas District.

Tonight we’re headed to Longview to see my little brother play again.  Last week they won 21-0.  This week is basically a battle for the district championship – both Longview and Mesquite are undefeated in district and both teams have already clinched playoff spots.  Longview hasn’t lost a district game in three years.  It’s time.

Go Luke!

I’m headed to Dallas tonight to watch my little bro Luke play some football. He plays quarterback for the Mesquite HS Skeeters – and he’s a stud.

Before last week he was the back-up who split some time. The guy in front of him was a senior who is orally committed to play at Oregon. But that was all before last week.

Last week they played their cross town rival North Mesquite. The other QB was in, and long story short, they went down 21-0 in the first quarter. The coach, who also happens to be my dad, put Luke in, and he went off. They ended up winning 28-21. He was 15-25 with 260-ish  yards (all in three quarters, mind you) and basically turned the game around. The other guy was like 3-8 with 8 yards.

So Luke’s starting this week, and I’m going to watch him play again. I’m pretty pumped for my little bro.  Props to my dad for making the decision to play Luke.
