Crockett football set to compete in 7 on 7 state tournament

CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - Sometimes playing the underdog role is fun. The Crockett football team will be in that position during the 7 on 7 state tournament which gets underway tomorrow afternoon for the division II teams. Not that the bulldogs aren't talented, but they will be one of the few class 2A teams competing in the tournament and the only one in their pool which includes Graham, Boerne, and Jasper. Since qualifying for the 7 on 7 championships, Crockett has held two practices each week and is ready for the challenge. Quarterback Case Robinson will lead the way and will have a big target at his disposal in wide receiver Carlton Shirley. Running back A.J. Phillips also provides big play ability. The bulldogs will try to finish in the top two of their pool and then compete in the championship bracket on Friday.
