Seriously, I think we could keep one of these going for the whole season, no?

Big matchup at Reliant today, Katy taking on The Woodlands. I am pissed that I'm in Phoenix, but I'll be listening on 610's website. Katy's got the most speed at skill positions since 2000. Woodlands has struggled in the past against teams who set out to play a physical style of ball, which is exactly what Katy does.

I'm a homer, yes, but I expect Katy to come out on top in this one.

If I was in town, I would be at that game. It should be a classic.
5Atexasfootball.com has Katy ranked 6th and Woodlands 14th in state in the preseason poll. Katy is 6th or 7th in most of the polls.

What's up with the stream? Countdown to kickoff (Texans) is streaming on top of the Katy/Woodlands game..you can hear both. I think the HS game is supposed to have priority on the stream.

Last year Katy split QB time with Sr. Jared Gayhart and then Jr. Andy Dalton. This year it is Katy with just Dalton at QB. He has a great arm and will most likely diversify the Tiger's offense like we have not seen in years. As evident against the Woodlands, the defense is solid.

I go to Westfield High School in Spring, and the football team is one of the best in the state. We lost to Tyler Lee in the 5A State Championship after losing our star RB. However, Westfield has little to no coverage except in the Houston Chronicle.

Lake blew a 20 point lead in the 4th quarter last night, losing to LaPorte 35-34. They will be in the playoff hunt again but they are not the team they were last year.

Creek was shut out by Kingwood, extending their losing streak to something like 12 or 13 games.

Brook, playing without their star running back Carlos Frank, shut out Oak Ridge 13-0. Brook held Oak Ridge to 22 yards rushing on 27 carries. Moorhead Stadium is very nice for an old house.

Alvin lost too, so it wasn't a good weekend for 24-5A.

Edit: La Marque edged Ball 20-19.

Klein Collins was upset by Klein Oak (I went to Oak as a freshman and KC the other 3 years) 28-17. KC senior RB Michael Goodson tweaked his ankle and had to sit out most of the game which easily could have been the deciding factor. He's supposed to be one of the top recruits in the nation, and looks to have committed to Oklahoma State. Keep an eye out for him because he's been a star so far at KCHS.

The team that I have followed for the last 20+ years (Willowridge) is in the process of rebuilding, so I will be there for support of the team. I also will be following Hightower closely, and wish them all the best. The first two games have been very close, and I am not sure how the teams they beat narrowly (Hastings and Memorial) are ranked, so the next few weeks will be interesting to say the least. But a big shout out to both teams, from an avid supporter. :thumbup

i too mainly follow 24-5A, i played at bwood. we've been down the past couple of years, when i was there we wrecked. not the players fault though, if you catch my drift. i also follow the spring district, since i coach in it..lol. westfield is loaded. danny mccray is a complete beast. went to regional in the 200, should have made it out, goes 6-2 208, hits like a freight train. their starting qb is back...they're loaded. as i heard one coach say.."they should win it all, hands down." spring has a group of freshman that could take out almost every jv team in the state...they are very talented. in about a year or two they will be killing people left and right. if you want to see some really good football go watch spring's freshman squad, they're sick....

That is great that Oak upset Collins. I graduated from Oak and my little brother played there two years ago. We always had a great baseball team, but sucked at football. My step son plays for Cy Ridge. I will have to keep an eye open for Darnell Kelly. My son is only a freshman and we just moved over here, but I love high school football.

There's a reason the Tigers are 6th in state, and it really has nothing to do with 19-5A's strength. Westfield, Katy, and North Shore are the top three 5A schools in the GHA at this point in time. And then there's the Lufkin machine. North Shore lost their best offensive lineman for the year the other night.

Clear Brook beat Clear Creek 36-33 in overtime today, this was also Clear Brook's homecoming game, and the Game of the Week on KHOU11. This win will keep the wolverines in hunt of a consecutive playoff berth. I love watching district 24-5a.

aj.
10-27-2005, 08:28 PM
That was a very exciting game. Brook stopped Creek with a defensive stand in overtime for the second year in a row, but the Wolverines couldn't stand the prosperity as they lost to Alvin last week. That all but eliminated Brook from the playoff race. Creek has some serious speed at RB and wideout. The new coach has done a great job with those kids, turning that program around.

The third playoff spot will come down to Creek and Alvin. Alvin finishes against Ball and Pearland and that's a very likely 0-2 for them. I'm pretty sure Creek has the tiebreaker on head to head with Alvin or in a three way with Brook and Alvin. I expect Creek to split their last two, giving them three losses along with Alvin. In other words, I see Creek getting that third playoff spot. They should since they are a better team than Alvin IMO.

It's Brook and Lake tomorrow at District Stadium. It's Lake's homecoming (delayed by Rita) even though it was originally a Brook home game. This is always a good game. These are two schools that absolutely hate each other - much like Creek and Lake of old. I'll be in my usual seat (top row 45 yard line).

I can't wait for the playoffs to start so we can see some of these local powerhouses square off against each other.

There's your 24-5A report.

p.s., if anyone wants to see a really good RB, Foswhitt Whitaker of Pearland is the real deal. Power, balance and speed plus great lower body strength -- it takes two or three kids to bring him down.

A couple fellow little league football coaches & I went Friday night and watched Deer Park beat LaPorte 20 - 16. What was really sweet & rewarding for me was watching about 15 players playing on a Friday night (and winning) an emotional game. In 1999, these kids were on my Pasadena Bear Senior team just learning the game & six short years later they have blossomed into solid starters, being the deciding factor in a pivotal game. I have never in my life felt prouder than when after the game these kids came to the fence & shook our hands, & visited with us, including us in their celebration. Theres nothing quite like those Friday night lights!

It was a fun game to be at. Packed house. Standing room only - and sitting room only. THere were people sitting all over the grassy embankments at the ends of the grandstands. I even saw people standing outside the fence on the southwest side trying to see what was going on. (I was sitting on the 50 about halfway up the Westfield side but I had to get there at 5:30 to get that seat - for a 7:00 kickoff). The NS side sold out before the game and they only had 800 tickets left for general adm. They should have had this one at Rice. They could have had 35,000 people there. There was D-I talent all over the place on that field last night.

Don't know why we weren't ranked as #1 all season. Besides the NS game, the closest game I remember was 60-14.

Has anyone heard anything about Pierre Beasly's recruiting? I remember a guy from Texas was at our lunch giving out pamphlets about UT, but he didn't seem to pay attention.

The Houston Chronicle claims Beasly also plays guard for Westfield, yet Richard Justice said earlier he focused solely on football, plus, last time i checked, Beasly wasn't on the roster banner in the main gym

Rivals has Beasley listed as a 2 star (out of 5). His list includes Georgia Tech, Memphis, Oklahoma, Stanford, Texas A&M, Utah State, and Wake Forest. Last night was the first time I saw him play. He's very strong, athletic and elusive. I was very impressed with his ability to avoid the rush. I wasn't as impressed with his arm or field vision (except for the first play of the game) - he had open receivers several times last night but either was late with the throw, off target, or didn't see them at all - but to be fair, last night was the one and only time I've seen him play so that's probably not a fair critique. He's obviously a great athlete and has a D-I future ahead of him in some capacity. I was very impressed with Westfield's #44 DB who I've heard is going to LSU.

....or just go to 6A and be done with it. I think it's going to get worse before it gets better, i.e., expanding the playoff field again. There are already 3-7 teams getting in. It's a bit ridiculous. With all due respect to Cy Fair, it would be fun to see Katy play Westfield in a "city championship" but it won't happen this year.

Speaking of big 5A and little 5A.... according to Westfield's website, their enrollment is approximately 3,200 students in grades 10-12. According to Katy's website, they have 2,762 in grades 9-12. Big difference. If you add in the 9th grade count to Westfield's numbers, that would put them well over 4,000 for an apples to apples comparison..

btw ... Katy's next opponent, Beaumont West Brook (8-1) lost to Westfield, 42-14 just a few weeks ago in 22-5A play.

Don't know if anyone is interested, but in 3A ball Kirbyville beat Barbers Hill 36-34 Saturday. I'm a BH grad, and I felt really bad for our kicker, the poor kid missed 2 or 3 PAT'S in the game, then nailed a 43 yarder to give them the lead with a little over a minute left. Honestly, no one thought he would make it, but a couple of big plays later Kirbyville's kicker nailed the game winner as time expired, one of the best games I've ever seen. Hats off to Kirbyville, and good luck.

5A Div II as predicted. I think Smithson Valley will beat Katy - I was surprised Katy had so much trouble with Cy Falls - and the Southlake Carroll - Lufkin contest is almost too close to call. Sux for the Greater Houston area but I'll say SLC and SV in the finals.

I have no idea if the injury has affected his status.

Update: The print version of the Chronicle on 12-11-05 shows Beasley's list to be Ok St., Utah St., Duke, and Memphis. They are referencing rivals.com which is a bit puzzling since that's where I got the link above which doesn't mention Ok St. or Duke. Not sure which is the most current list.

Beasley committed to Rice yesterday. A great pickup for the Owls. I had heard several schools passed on him because of the awkward throwing motion. Sounds familiar doesn't it? Their loss. This kid is smart and a great athlete. Major Applewhite is now OC at Rice and I wouldn't doubt they try to use Pierre the same way UT used Vince- since Major worked w/Vince as a grad asst. He could run straight option or zone read effectively.

I know they did well last year after moving into 19-5A - but they are in with Katy so that will always be a roadblock. The last time I saw them was three years ago so I can't speak about their current team. Join the forum at the link above and scroll to the Greater Houston Forum. There will be someone on there who follows that district and maybe even your former school very closely.

They're also in there with Katy Taylor...as much a free pass as Katy is a roadblock.

There's been a lot of re-districting going on so I thought I would check and sure enough, Strake got moved to 17-5A with the Cy Fair schools.

Even though it's an hour away, I plan to attend at least one game at the new Cy Fair stadium on Barker Cypress this year. It's right across the street from where my bro-in law lives and I've been watching it being built for a couple of years now. It's a muther and probably will surpass Galena Park as the best stadium in the area.

Here's the 19-5A standings from last year but that won't apply to Strake this year due to the redistricting. Rivals (Texas Prep Extra) has everything you need if you have time to do some mouse clicking....

And yes, people from out of state, that is a HIGH SCHOOL football stadium. Texas High School that is....

Looking at the stands, it doesn't look like it holds any more people than Galena Park. It's just all that fancy architecture around the perimiter that makes it look much larger from the outside (I haven't been inside). Looks like a gwallaia job.

1 or 2????? Check yourself friend....I come from the most winning 4a high school football program in the 90's friend, that would be LA MARQUE HIGH SCHOOL, and we have sent over 100 players to the ncaa on d-1 scholarships in the last 10 years. Texas high school talent is top shelf. Look at UT's championship roster from the rose bowl and see how many of those boys were from texas.......now look at starting linebacker rashad bobino..that man went to school with me, and the talent we had was unbelieveable. If you think only one or 2 of them are WORTHY then you are sadly misinformed.

Yeah but true or false: there's a lot of unworthy, boring, slow white guys who think they are the sh!t cause they start on their high school football team when in all reality will never touch an NCAA roster and will wind up being their hometown orthodontist.

I guess it's just the high school attitude where these kids think they are gods when in all reality the only people who care are their parents and alumni of the school.

Racist much? where do you think NCAA rosters come from? HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL. So to say that High School football is stupid because nobody makes it to the NCAA is ridiculous on many levels...obviously they are making it to the NCAA, otherwise we wouldn't have one. Texas is also one of the best THREE states for high school football, with the most NCAA D1 scholarships going to texas, california, and florida respectively. Im sure High School football IS a joke in tennessee, much like your pro team.

Generally speaking black people are more athletic. How many white corner backs are in the NFL? Who are the fastest people in the NFL? Who are the fastest track stars in the olympics?
