Aledo High School - Aledo, TX
Aledo Bearcats travel to Dallas Cowboys Stadium, December 17, in search of their 3rd consecutive football state championship and fourth title in school history. The Bearcats are led by the Gatorade National Player of the Year, RB Johnathan Gray who has tied the national record for career touchdowns with 204 in his four years at Aledo High School. Thanks to Gray and QB Matthew Bishop, the Bearcats have emerged as one of the premier sports powerhouses in the state of Texas. Aledo fans have enjoyed watching Aledo Bearcats Head Coach Tim Buchanan discuss each win in the weekly Coach’s Show video posted in the news section of the Aledo Bearcat’s Mobi. Gray’s fans even purchased a Personal Ad to support him in the Mobi – a feature many teams are utilizing as a fundraising solution and to help with recruiting.
Carroll Senior High School - Southlake, TX
As one of the most recognized football programs nationally, the Dragons have won seven Texas State titles in eight championship appearances. This year, they will make their first trip to the state title game since 2006. Fans are engaging CarrollDragons.Mobi which includes a real-time scoreboard that is updated during each game, player profiles that offer the very latest individual stats throughout the high school football season, and brackets which showcase Carroll’s deep playoff run.
Cibolo Steele High School - Cibolo, TX
The Cibolo Steele Knights, from Byron P. Steele II High School, are returning to the Texas Class 5A State Championship for a second straight year. In 2011, the Knights are averaging 37 points-per-game leading up to this year’s state championship appearance. Steele fans are quick to use their SteeleHighSchool.Mobi to vote for their “Favorite Knight of the Week” thanks to the all-new polling technology. This new feature allows fans to provide their sports team and booster club with instant feedback every week.
Centreville High School - Centreville, VA
The Centreville Wildcats have some of the most loyal high school football fans in the state of Virginia. In fact, The Washington Post wrote a feature article about Centreville’s creative use of social media and their Mobi, which was created by MobiTree, as a key to their success. Their football team has one of the best quarterback-running back tandems in the country, as QB Mitch Ferrick and RB Manny Smith put forth a combined total of 41 touchdowns this season alone. Wildcat Touchdown Club’s CentrevilleFootball.mobi has amassed over 5,000 photos in their mobile photo gallery for fans.
