Giddings @ LaGrange
“Giddings vs. LaGrange” is all you have to say to fire up a rivalry that has burned ever since the two towns started playing one another. Giddings is 4-1 for the season and LaGrange is 1-4 as they open district play.
After five non-district games, the Buffs have scored 168 points and the opposition has scored 65. LaGrange has scored only 21 points and have given up 145 points. The numbers certainly favor the Buffs to win.
Gone from LaGrange is top receiver Brandon Wilkerson. The Cats return quarterback Logan Vinklarek and some large offensive linemen.
Giddings is still learning how to operate their offense. Running back Joseph Glenn has drawn a lot of ink as he has rushed for over 100 yards in four of five games. Deon Hickey is a smallish, extremely quick back who has caught some long distance scores. The Buffs also have an experienced offensive line led by Pierce Shelton and D.J. Rimes.
