Freshman football
Wylie Maroon 21, McKinney North 12 —The Maroon team played a solid game against North to come away with a good victory. The defense, led by linebacker, Trey Adams III, and defensive lineman James Taylor, played extremely well; rarely did they allow North to cross midfield. The Maroon offense was led by running back William Perry, who broke several long runs and scored all three touchdowns for the Pirates behind excellent blocking from the offensive line.
Wylie White 26, McKinney North 0 — Chris Washington scored all four touchdowns for the Pirates and the offensive line did a great job blocking for him. The defense played really, with Colton Bright and Zach Parish each had several big tackles for the Pirates.
