Texas High School Football, Under the Lights: Week 4 Preview

Steve Edmond's  Forest Whitaker's high school highlights. Let this preview serve as an open thread for all the Friday and Saturday Night Light action. Preview after the jump. 

Another week of high school football, another Friday night of Bill rushing to a game. Therefore, the preview will again be abbreviated.  Allen at Plano is on the menu tonight. This will be my first chance to see the # 1 team in the state of Texas, and top ten nationally ranked Allen Eagles. This will be a personally painful game watching Jonathan Williams for the first time live. My man crush on Williams is strong and well documented. I believe he is the second best feature back in the state of Texas. Yes I know who Trey Williams is, and no I don't think he'll be the feature back at TAMU. 

Allen also features 2012 Alabama quarterback commit Alec Morris. Recruiting old timer and mustache enthusiast Randy Rodgers  believe Morris is the best quarterback in the state of Texas. We'll see if Morris passes Bill's eye ball test tonight. Will Alabama pull another Greg McElroy out of DFW? 

Plano is undefeated and was picked second after Allen in District 8 - 5A. This could be the top game in a very good district. Can Plano shock the state and pull the upset?
