    The winner of this de facto Class 4A, District 3 championship game – the three other teams in the district (Atherton, Spencer County and Waggener) have a combined record of 4-16 so far – likely will get the district’s No. 1 seeding in next month’s 4A playoffs and would have at least two home playoff games.

    Shipley said he is hoping the new season will be a new start for the Rockets (1-5), who are coming off a 39-0 loss to cross-town rival Collins.

    That’s the good news.
