Week 1 District 13-5A Insider

This district could be considered one of the best in the area and the teams like Klein Collins are looking to only improve that.

13-5A DISTRICT INSIDER
Three of the big dogs were idol during Zero Week but now will be playing their first game of the 2008 season. Two of the three will be playing teams that already have a game under their belt and it should be interesting to see if that will have any say so in the outcome of the game.

Westfield vs Cy Falls- Now does this game really need a paragraph explaining anything at all? I don't think so but just in case you were out last season Cy Falls won an absolute thriller of a game in a shoot-out! This game should be no different but you never know in Texas high school football. If you are able to make it out to Leonard George Stadium on Thursday you should be in for a real treat.
Klein Forest @ Langham Creek- The Golden Eagles traveled all the way to Ohio and absolutely dominated Warren Howland only giving up 34 rushing yards and 137 yards overall defensively. Langham Creek threw for 359 yards vs Spring but the Klein Forest secondary should be alot better.
Klein Oak vs Cy Creek- Last year this game was T-Rob's breaking out party. Now that he is gone to Ann Arbor what new Panther will step up and be the go to playmaker that Klein Oak will need offensively this season? Cy Creek played well at the end of the season last year and returns some key skill guys but will have to break in an all new quarterback.
Spring vs Humble- No doubt that Humble is coming into this game with a chip on their shoulder. Last season Spring came into their house and just took Humble behind the woodshed and whooped them as they say. Spring SR QB Ken McNeal was 23-26 for 253 yards last week and will look to build upon that.
Klein vs Cy Ridge- Cy Ridge was supposed to be a top team in the area and still can be although they start the season off 0-1. Another loss here would really put a damper on things but Klein won this game last year on a terrific defensive game. Klein needs to show that they can score on offense with a whole new cast of characters.
Klein Collins vs Cy Fair- Cy Fair was only down 6 at halftime last week but ended up losing 42-0. Klein Collins pulled a shocker and upset Conroe 21-7 so they are riding high with their new head coach. This game should be a good one with two new look teams.
Tomball vs Oak Ridge- If you like it when a tremendous passing team plays a stellar rushing team then this is your dream match-up! Tomball throws the ball all over the field and why not when you have SR QB Chad Tarhini and JR WR Jordan Leslie! Oak Ridge runs the ball basically every play and look out for FR RB Michael Handy.
DeKaney @ Willis (4A)- Willis was just bad last year ending up 0-10. However they are now 1-0 and feeling more confident. On the other hand DeKaney is coming off their first game as a varsity team which was a loss to fellow newby Clear Springs. Coach Amendola knows this could be an opportunity for a win and in this district that could be their only one of the season.

Players of the Week   UIL Realignment Numbers
I think that two guys absolutely deserve this award but one gets the nod because his team won. Klein Forest SR RB Dominic Wilkins ran the ball 17 times and ended up with 119 yards and 2 TD. Oh, and caught a 21 yard TD pass as well from SR QB Vernell Caldwell. JR WR Jordan Leslie had an amazing performance in his teams loss. He had 10 receptions for 205 yards and 2 TD.

Last Week in Review:    Klein Forest absolutely dominated Warren Howland (OHIO) and showed they are back once again in a very strong way. Klein Collins began their season on a high note as they defeated Conroe in a bit of a surprise game. Spring looked very good on offense and need to shore up the secondary but came away with a W. Tomball threw the pigskin all over the field but fell short to surprise team Morton Ranch. DeKaney lost in a battle of brand new schools and the road just gets tougher after this weekend.
Looking Ahead: Non-District games don't really matter in the big scheme of things which of course is making the playoffs. However, if teams like Klein Collins and Tomball start to play well and gain confidence then that will help catapault them into district play against the big dogs
