On the Thursday edition of the Chad Hasty Show, Steven Orr from the “West Texas Friday Night Scoreboard” show talked with Chad Hasty about his picks for the big games in high school football this week.

Week 5 is a little light on high school action, due to a number of teams taking their bye weeks this week. But according to Orr, there are still a few games this week worth checking out. One of those games will be Friday night, with Lubbock High vs. Perryton. Orr said that Perryton's had it rough this season, going 0-5 so far, but added that their record doesn't accurately match their performance, and that Perryton always plays hard. As for LHS, Orr says the team has also been struggling, but last week's win against Andrews gave them some momentum.

Another tight game will be Estacado vs. Melissa on Saturday. Orr said the Melissa team walked away with the 3-A district championship last year, and they're looking just as strong this year. Orr added that Estacado will have to play a mistake-free, near perfect game if they want to stand a chance against Melissa.

For Week 5, Orr picked Canyon vs. Monahans as his Game of the Week. He said that these teams have had some history, particularly in the playoffs, and that both teams are looking very strong this season. Other games to watch this week include Slaton vs. New Deal, Abernathy vs. Springlake-Earth, and Tulia vs. Lockney.
