Games to Watch: Starting to click, Trinity Christian football welcomes Denver City

Knowing the amount of returning talent he had off last year's state runner-up team, Kevin Spiller decided it was best for the Trinity Christian football team to run the gauntlet in non-district play.
The Lions' 2-2 record isn't remarkable, but the quality of their competition has been — the two losses coming to fellow state-title contenders.

It was at the tail end of one of those losses, a 35-25 setback to Argyle Liberty Christian, that Spiller thought the Lions started to find something. That momentum carried over to the following game, where Trinity dominated New Deal for a 42-10 victory.
"It was one of those things where I felt like the kids felt like we figured a few things out," Spiller said. "Like I told them after the game, we kind of clicked in all facets of the game. I felt like it would happen. I felt like we could play with New Deal, but I was totally surprised by the way we were able to really control most of the ball game.
