After fast starts, Heart of Texas high school football teams put record on the line under the Friday night lights

Living up to their lofty preseason rankings, a number of Heart of Texas teams trying to remain undefeated in Week 3 to stay among the state’s top 10 in their respective divisions.

In Class 3A, Division I, the defending state champion Grandview Zebras travel to Godley, while the Class 3A, DII preseason state-ranked Clifton Cubs visits Maypearl looking for their first win of the season.
