Here’s Tuesday’s look at the Class 6A quarterfinals, and from Wednesday on Class 5A.

We’re starting to have some more prep football stuff hit today on the internet and in Friday’s edition of The Eagle – here’s the link to my notes on Derby, Buhler-Mulvane and Garden Plain-Scott City and here’s our Getting to Know on Sedgwick running back Dalton Brandt.

Also, here’s the link to a story about Smith Center football coach Roger Barta’s retirement by the Salina Journal’s Arne Green.


Chanute (7-4) at Kansas City Piper (9-2) – Chanute is playing well, having won six of its last seven games with the only loss coming to then-undefeated Fort Scott in the district finale. Piper is on a streak of its own with six straight wins.

Eudora (10-1) at Louisburg (7-4) –Eudora has won five straight, including two shutouts and two games where they gave up six points. Eudora beat Louisburg on Sept. 7, 21-20. Louisburg’s defense played well in last week’s 23-7 playoff win over Coffeyville Field Kindley – they gave up under 100 yards of rushing and had three interceptions.

McPherson (10-1) at Holton (11-0) – Holton, the top-ranked team in 4A, beat No. 2 Collegiate 28-0 on the road last week and now they’ve got No. 3 McPherson. The Bullpups beat Andale 42-36 behind big games from Austin O’Bannion and Kyler Kinnamon.

Buhler (8-3) at Mulvane (10-1) – If you’re at this game do me a favor and pay attention to Mulvane WR/TE Alex Evans, a 6-foot, 190-pound senior. Evans has told me he wants to play baseball in college … but dude has the best hands of any high school player I’ve seen in years. Mulvane QB Ty Redington: “I know if I throw it up, if I just get it anywhere close to him he’ll catch it.”

Evans’ stat line this year is sick – 84 catches, 1,450 receiving yards and 13 TDs.
