Landon Farris touchdown run

Argyle running back Landon Farris (20) runs up the field for the Eagles' lone touchdown during their game last week against Wichita Falls Rider. Argyle is set for a rematch with Grapevine in this week's regional semifinals.

Deep playoff pushes have come to be the standard at Argyle with 13 district championships and two state titles coming over the last 14 seasons.

A pair of regional final appearances and one of those state championships during the last four years have helped set the bar high. Those runs made last year’s regional semifinal loss all the more disappointing for the Eagles as they surrendered a late lead in falling to eventual state champion Stephenville.
