What are some of the best district rivalries and traditions?

Postby granger » Tue Oct 08, 2019 9:28 am

With district play starting for quite a few teams this weekend I thought I would open this up... Unfortunately with two divisions and constant realignments this isn't the same as it once was (I am thinking about Leman's Highland-Blackwell). I will start it off with Strawn-Gordon.

I don't know of ANY other rivalry except maybe Texas-OU where the parents of the football players get in a fist fight on the playing field after the game like they have at Strawn-Gordon games. I was at the game at Gordon in 1970 and it wasn't pretty. Some of those folks thought they were in Mingus, the fighting capital of north Texas!! Yes a legendary rivalry well known second to none. Strawn vs Gordon. Strawn had a great rivalry with the Carbon Wolverines too, those wolverines were mean and tough just ask some of those Gordon players. You didn't invite Carbon for the homecoming game!

Aquilla and Abbott for sure should be on the list. 13 miles from school to school

D2 District 16 might have the best tradition. 4 out of the 5 teams in the district have at least one state title.
Richland Springs, Panther Creek, Cherokee, and Lohn.
The Cherokee/Richland game has been lopsided in Richlands favor for a long time, but the game still gets pretty saucy every year.

Valley and Follett. They've had some battles. Maybe Valley and Happy too. I remember not too long ago that Happy was ranked 1, 45d valley in the regular season and then got 45d by valley in the postseason.

That's one of those that's been off and on with RS heading to 11-man at times. Here's a good link to those results on Shanon's site,

I also recall there's a quote in the old Jan 1979 Texas Monthly article entitled The Joy of Six about this as well.

Pop Quiz for Granger, What school placed second in their district twice and still managed to win the State championship that season?

i am new to the area, but Grandfalls-Royalty and Balmorhea seems to be a pretty big rivalry

trick question, you cannot finish second place in your district twice in one season
