The quarterfinals are here for Central Texas 5A teams. Just as 2020 ends the true fun begins as both Cedar Park and Liberty Hill are within reach of the semifinals and a state title. Still, both teams need to get past Manvel and Pioneer this week. Both Cedar Park and Liberty Hill have plenty of talent, but these are the players to watch out for this week.

1. Manvel vs Cedar Park (Friday at 2 p.m.)

  • Ryder HernandezRyderHernandez6'0" | QBCedar Park | 2021TX (CP) - The senior quarterback has been one of the most talked-about names this year and that will continue as long as the powerhouse of Cedar Park continues through the playoffs. Hernandez remains a player to watch simply because he is a playmaker and it seems like he can score no matter what team he is playing against. He had 390 passing yards and four touchdowns with one interception against Canyon last week. This season, he has 3,472 passing yards and 47 touchdowns with just two interceptions, which came in the playoffs.
  • Josh Cameron (CP) - One of Hernandez’s favorite targets in the playoffs has been the senior receiver Cameron, who had 11 receptions for 174 yards and two touchdowns
