La Porte takes on the Fort Bend Bush Broncos at 1 at Abshire Stadium in Deer Park today...should be a Bulldog win. Hosa Scott on the edge is a beast. La Porte plays really good defense. They are fast and big.
La Porte vs. Fort Bend Bush, 1:00 p.m. Saturday, Deer Park
Here's a fascinating matchup — the easy pick here would be La Porte, which ended up sweeping a far tougher district than Bush's 23-5A, while the Broncos came in second to Hightower. The Bulldogs should also have a pronounced edge defensively, where it's seen and defeated the likes of Beaumont West Brook, PA Memorial, Channelview, North Shore and even Deer Park. But there's just something about Bush that makes me think they're very much in this game; coach Allen Aldridge has done such a great job with the program, and they seem to be unable to say die, even in underdog matchups. Ultimately, I think La Porte RB Keith Whitely is going to win this game for LP, but don't be surprised if Bush goes down fighting, a thriller to the end.
Travis' pick: La Porte 34, FB Bush 28
