Pleasant Grove continues to lead the Kicker Cup City Championship standings as we stand around the halfway point of the regular season of local high school football.

The traveling Kicker Cup is awarded each year to the Texarkana High School football team that finishes the regular season with the best record. Tie-breakers include head to head match ups and overall point differential between points scored and points given up.

The Hawks have played one less game than everyone else, having already had their bye week off.  The Hawks boast wins over in town rivals, Arkansas High and Liberty-Eylau. Arkansas High defeated Texas High this year, and Texas High bested LE.

Here are current standings through Week #5 of high school football for 2017.

1. Pleasant Grove  4-0  +106

2. Arkansas High    3-2      0(even)

3. Texas High          2-3    -9

4. Liberty-Eylau       1-4   -44

We will award the trophy to the winning school during the team's first playoff pep rally at the end of the regular season. The City Championship trophy began in 1996 and is in its 22nd season of being awarded to the best high school football team in Texarkana each year.
