Varsity Preview

The Series: The Vikings lead the series 6-0, and have won the only two previous meetings at Cravens Field (2011 and 2013). Lamar and North Crowley have played every year since they joined the same district in 2010.

Last Week: Lamar manhandled Sam Houston 51-3 for its first district win. North Crowley fell to the Arlington Colts 50-20.

Getting His Kicks:  Lamar’s Luke Michie booted three field goals against Sam Houston, one shy of the school record of four set by Kyle Daley against San Angelo Central in 2003.

Spreading It Out: Six different Vikings have found the endzone in the first four games of 2016. Senior RB Rashod Polk leads the way with five rushing scores and one receiving, while junior WR Matthew Shaw has caught three.

Many Happy Returns: The second half kickoff has been kind to Vikings this season. Senior Kolby Underwood took the second half kickoff versus Keller Central 105 yards for a score, and junior Dayton Dubs followed that up with a 69-yard TD return last week at Sam Houston.

Celebrate Homecoming: Looking for dinner plans before the game on Friday night? Project Celebration 2017 is hosting a pregame tailgate starting at 5:00 PM. Hamburgers, chicken, and hot dogs available for $10!
