Coach Greg Cranfill and the Wills Point Tigers added a bi-district title trophy to a season that already included a District 6-4A title. 

The Wills Point Tiger varsity football program entered play against Bonham Nov. 12 carrying a surprising streak, having not won a playoff game since the year before this year’s senior class entered the first grade.

Aided by a handful of key plays, most notably an electrifying 97-yard touchdown run by Brandon Smith and momentum shifting 84-yard interception return by Trey Patterson to set up another Tiger score, Wills Point ended the lengthy drought with a 20-13 win over the Warriors to advance to the Area round.  

Bonham began play on offense, showcasing their blueprint for the rest of the afternoon by running the ball eight out of 10 plays on the drive while chewing up the game clock before turning the ball over on downs at the Tiger 35-yard line.

Wills Point managed just one first down on its opening drive before being forced to punt the ball back to the Warriors.
