Euless Trinity Out For Mythical National Title

After their stunning, come-from-behind thrilling win over Austin Westlake in the Class 5A Division I state championship game two weeks ago, the Eulesss Trinity Trojans can make history next week.

The Trojans will be one of 64 teams involved in a computer-generated "virtual playoff system" generated by the fine folks at highschoolsports.net.

The computer system is similar to the one generated to come up with the BCS Ratings system in the college game and will feature three teams from Texas: Trinity, Class 4A Division I state champ Lake Travis and Class 5A Division II state champ Abilene. Trinity fans will also be familiar with Bingham (Utah), which fell to the Trojans in their season opener in the Kirk Herbstreit Classic at Cowboys Stadium to kick off the season.

The Trojans won their third Class 5A state title in five years when they beat Westlake in overtime, marking the first 5A state championship game to be decided in overtime.
