It isn’t one of the Harris Ratings Weekly’s games of the week in Class 4A, but it probably should be.

When the Calallen Wildcats and Alice Coyotes meet Friday night in Wildcats Stadium, the game will not only determine an early leader in District 31-4A.

The game will also produce the highest-rated 4A team in South Texas.

Currently, that is a distinction owned by?Calallen, who is rated No. 29. However, after Thursday night’s 57-12 thrashing of Mission Veterans Memorial, Alice moved 10 spots from no. 40 to 30. The two schools are in front of no. 38 Flour Bluff, 40 Gregory-Portland and 42 Beeville. Class 2A’s Freer is another team on the move facing a big match-up Friday night.

The No. 87 Buckaroos face George West, who is rated No. 48, is a District 31-2A showdown. The district opener is in Freer.
