TexasPrepInsider takes an in depth look at The Woodlands SQT including pool predictions from three members of the TPI staff!!! This tournament is absolutely loaded full of talent and has five teams that have already qualified for the 7on7 state tournament in College Station.
*Team has already qualified
*The Woodlands: Injuries didn't seem to slow The Woodlands down at all last week as they went on to make the championship game last week at the Cy Creek SQT therefore qualifying them already. Look out for players like WR/DB Logan Rowe, WR/QB Ryan Eastman, QB Andy McCloud, and RB Daniel Lasco.
Klein Forest: KF has only played in one SQT so far and lost a tie breaker by 2 points. Athletes like LB Cameron Nwosu, WR/DB Vernon Rogers, WR/DB Damian Payne, and RB Dominic Wilkins will always make every game close.
Bryan: A solid football team on both sides of the football. Offense will get it down with RB Monterrell Washington and WR Trey Odom. Defensively it will be up to LB Chris Ramirez, LB Curtis Cook, and DB Justin Hartgroves.
Cy Fair: The Bobcats have always done well at 7on7 and especially here at The Woodlands SQT. TE Colby Goodwin is a huge target at 6-4 and other weapons like RB Maurice Lane and QB Tevin Champagne don't hurt either.
Jay's Pick: Klein Forest
AZ's Pick: Cy Fair
Vital's Pick: Klein Forest
*Cy Falls: The Golden Eagles qualified already at their own SQT as they took on Klein Oak in the championship game. That wont stop them from wanting to still go 3-0 in pool play with QB Kolby Gray and WR Eric Williams.
Westfield: The Mustangs are proven winners but have yet to really put it together during 7on7. But with an offense that has playmakers like QB Jacoby Walker, SR Adam Watson, WR Barry Ford, and WR Ja'Mes Logan it is bound to happen eventually.
Conroe: The Tigers had a nice outing last weekend but came up just a little short in the semifinals. RB Lou Greenwood, RB D.D. Johnson lead the offense while LB Blake Cavil and DB Brandon Thornton will try to anchor the defense just enough for another pool win.
Jay's Pick: Westfield
AZ's Pick: Westfield
Vital's Pick: Conroe
Lufkin: The Panthers always have one of the most athletic teams in the state and it wont stop this year. QB Jeffrey Claybon looks to build on his outstanding JR year with RB Trevon Lewis. The Panthers will also host their own SQT a couple of weeks after this.
*Klein: The Bearcats looked like a team on a mission last weekend at the Cy Creek SQT as they went on and won in the championship game vs The Woodlands. RB Patrick Johnson and RB Dekota Barnes are fast as lightning and DB/WR Tyler Boss just seems to be all over the field at times.
Baytown Lee: The Ganders are the 7on7 legends and although they have had more talented teams in the past you can never count them out in this game. DB Thomas Bates can really help them get a win with some big defensive plays.
*Tomball: What more can you say as the Cougars went on in extremely surprising fashion to win the 2nd day of the Houston Texans SQT. The magic combo of QB Chad Tarhini to WR Jordan Leslie looks to be just unstoppable.
Jay's Pick: Lufkin
AZ's Pick: Lufkin
Vital's Pick: Baytown Lee
*Klein Oak: The Panthers qualified by making it to the championship game of the Cy Falls SQT but will be playing two district opponents and do not want to start losing now. DB Jeremy Mayweather and DB Luke Muncie hold their own in the secondary while QB Andy Wilson will try to find targets like TE Jordan Najvar and RB Ossam Cook.
Klein Collins: New coaching staff means new schemes and this is a perfect way for the Tigers to learn it against varsity speed. LB/RB Malcolm Johson and LB Jesse Beauchamp will try to ralley the group.
