On Thursday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News, Steven Orr from the “West Texas Friday Night Scoreboard” show talked with Chad Hasty and Rex Andrew about his picks for the big games in high school football this week.

Last week saw some record-setting performances across West Texas. At the Caprock/Estacado game, Caprock receiver Addison Buston was just shy of beating the Texas state record with 13 receptions and 392 yards. Meanwhile, the New Deal/Lamesa game saw some major points as New Deal triumphed over Lamesa with an astonishing final score 89-70.

This week, the big games are all in the Lubbock area. Coronado will be taking on Abilene Cooper this week, and with both teams suffering a loss last week, Orr says they are both hungry for a win. Also, Monterrey will be facing its toughest test yet this season as they take on Randall this week. Finally, 7th-ranked Frenship is taking on 6th-ranked Amarillo, and Orr said it's important for Frenship to get points on the board early. Other big games in the are include Shallowater vs. Dalhart, Levelland vs. Brownfield, Strattford vs. Littlefield and Canadian vs. Abernathy.

In 6-man football, the game of the week will be Rankin vs. Meadow. Other 6-man games include Motley County vs. Paducah and Ropes vs. Nazareth.
