Top 5 High School Football Games in the Fort Worth Area Week 3

Looking for a good high school football game to watch in Week 3, but don’t want to travel far.

We have the best games in the Fort Worth area here:

Allen (1-1) vs. Arlington Martin (2-0)

7 p.m. Friday, Choctaw Stadium, Arlington

Martin cracked the Top 10 State Rankings at No. 9 after beating Cedar Hill to start 2-0. Anthony Crenshaw shone on defense with 14 tackles, a forced fumble, two interceptions and a touchdown. Martin is also No. 2 in the Class 6A Zone standings and started the season with a big win at home against Austin Lake Travis.

Keep looking for Crenshaw on D with 5 star corner Javien Toviano, the top high school football player in the Fort Worth area. Running back Zaire Barrow will lead the offense.

Allen, No. 23 in the state, was knocked out by St. John Bosco of California in the season opener but bounced back to beat Houston King 49-14 last week. Mike Hawkins threw for three touchdowns and Kayvion Sibley rushed for three scores and 228 yards.

Martin hasn’t lost a home game since 2018. The Warriors are continuing that momentum. Give me Bob Wager and company, 31-24.

Argyle (2-0) vs. Grapevine (2-0)

7:00 p.m. Friday, Mustang-Panther Stadium

It’s a battle between two teams ranked by state and region when the Eagles visit the Mustangs.

Argyle is the highest ranked Class 5A region team and the highest ranked state team in Class 5A Division 2. Grapevine is #4 in the region and #6 in the state.

Who will improve to 3-0?

The Eagles won a shootout, 56-49 over Lucas Lovejoy in Week 2. Argyle rushed for 569 yards. Landon Farris had 233 rushing yards and a touchdown. RJ Bunnell rushed for 193 yards and four touchdowns. Jacob Robinson added 114 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

The Mustangs defeated Azle, 58-14. Evan Baum passed for 230 yards and three scores. He also rushed for two scores. Parker Polk rushed for 148 yards and a touchdown and also caught a 39-yard touchdown. Hank Miller scored for 76 yards and Sammy Kelley also caught a touchdown from Baum.

Expect another offensive firefight. Give me Argyle by a hair, 49-42.

Aledo (0-2) vs. Justin Northwest (1-1)

7 p.m. Thursday, ISD North West Stadium

The district starts for the Bearcats and Texans and for Aledo a few things are at stake. Aledo has the longest district winning streak in the nation at 103 games, a streak that began in 2007.

But on the other hand, Aledo, who lost to Dallas Parish and Denton Guyer, hasn’t been 0-3 since 1990.

For Northwest, the Texans lost a heartbreaker at home last week, 47-39 to McKinney North. However, the 4-star committed quarterback from Texas Tech strong jake accounted for over 400 yards and four touchdowns.

The Texans fight to the end, but the Bearcats keep the streak alive. Give me Aledo, 38-30.

Fort Worth Wyatt (2-0) vs. Fort Worth Dunbar (0-2)

7 p.m. Friday, Clark Stadium, Fort Worth

It’s a showdown in Fort Worth on Friday between the Chaparrals and the Wildcats. The two teams met last season where Wyatt won 49-26.

Wyatt beat Joshua last week to make it 2-0 for the first time since 2017. The Chaparrals started this season 4-0 while Dunbar is looking for his first win this fall.

Wyatt averages 30 points per game.

Dunbar scored 57 points last week but gave up 70 to Ponder in a loss.

This one is going to be fun. Give me Wyatt, 45-36.

Lucas Lovejoy (1-1) vs. North Crowley (2-0)

7 p.m. Thursday, Crowley ISD Multi-Purpose Stadium, Fort Worth

Lovejoy heads west this week as the Leopards look to bounce back from a loss to Argyle in Week 2. Lovejoy dropped from second place in the Class 5A Division 2 States standings after a 56-49 loss. The Leopards’ D gave up 569 rushing yards and more than 700 total yards.

In two games, Lovejoy is averaging 50 points.

Meanwhile, North Crowley moved up to No. 3 in the Class 6A Zone standings after beating Arlington.

The Panthers put up 50 points in Week 1 and the defense is allowing 13 points per game, led by Texas 4-Star Linebacker S’Maje Burrell. He is the No. 12 ranked player on Star-Telegram’s Top 100 and was the district’s co-defensive MVP last season after having 104 tackles, 13 for loss, five sacks and four forced fumbles.

North Crowley will need to be near perfect to win. But it will be close. Give me Lovejoy 33-28.
