UIL, TAPPS postseason schedule update


POSTSEASON UPDATE: UIL, TAPPS FOOTBALL

Two points separated the Regents football team from a TAPPS Division II state title last season. On Friday, the Knights will get a second shot at winning their third state championship as a TAPPS 11-man squad.

Regents won five TAPPS championships from 2001-10 — the first three as a six-man team, the final two as an 11-man squad — but the Knights are 0-2 in more recent state-title contests. In 2012, they lost to Bullard Brook Hill 26-3 in the TAPPS Division III final. Last fall, they fell to Grapevine Faith Christian 30-29 in overtime when a two-point conversion attempt failed.
