District Preview: Class 3A District 6

District 6 has four teams that we cover with Sek-sports.com .  There could also be two league champions vying for a district title .  I believe there are only two teams that really have a shot at winning district 6 .  We have two teams from the Tri-Valley league and two from the Three Rivers league.

Humboldt 5-1

The Humboldt Cubs only loss this season was to Caney Valley . The orange and black bring a tough swarm to the ball type of defense and an offense that has multiple guys that can score at any time. Jacob Barker leads the team in rushing with 685 yards and six touchdowns. The Cubs need to get quarterback Hesston Murrow back healthy. Kyler Allen has done a fantastic job filling in the last few weeks .  Humboldt’s biggest victory was at home against Cherryvale 22-8. The Cubs will start district play on the road against the Red Devils of Erie . Humboldt’s real test will be the following week at home versus Jayhawk-Linn .  But coach Wyrick said he is not over looking Erie. ” The upperclassmen have definitely been reminded of what has happened in the last two meetings against Erie “. They have both been one score games.

Jayhawk-Linn 5-1

The Jayhawks had been cruising this season until last weeks first loss to the hands of Drexel Missouri 22-20. They have wrapped up a league title in the Three Rivers league. Their toughest game was week 1 versus Neodesha where they won on a last second touchdown pass.  They open up district play at home versus Northeast Arma . Jayhawk-Linn will have to win at Humboldt I believe to win this district .

Erie 1-5

The Red Devils haven’t had the season they were hoping for. Starting the season 0-5 before collecting their first win.  But as many of you know this is when the real season starts. They are hoping for an upset victory this week against a new rival in Humboldt .  They have played really close games against the Cubs in the last few seasons .  Winning the game 36-28 in the 2015 match up and losing last seasons game 16-8.

Northeast Arma 0-6

Northeast hasn’t won a football game since the 2015 season which it went 3-6. They are 3-6 against the teams in this district in the last three years.  Their last winning season came in the 2014 season which they were runner up to Pittsburg Colgan that year.  They will start district play at Jayhawk-Linn in Mound City . I believe their only real chance at a win in this district will come next week at Erie.

My predictions

Winner – Humboldt

Runner-up – Jayhawk-Linn
