Since we've gained quite a few posters this season we need a place for our folks to congregate.

Next season there are 15 players returning that were on the all-district team.

Our program seems to be on the upward swing.

1) Would like to see them get the center to get his back side up more so our quaterbacks knee isn't 3" off the ground so they can see the defense.
2) Get the plays into the offense sooner so they can make adjustments off what the defense is in, IE: 9 men in the box, etc.
3) Wish they would have gotten #12 more time in the games that they were way ahead in, he is a much better passer than what we have had in a few years, and has good speed also.
4) Don't have our coaches get OVER creative with the play calling to minimize the chance of a mistake, ie: screen pass with a lateral when there was NO need for it.

1) I've seen this too, I think this is to minimize errors on the exchange... But I dunno. Also you need to remember that he is pretty short so couldn't really see the defense anyways. Haha!
2) I thought they did a pretty good job this year, much better than years before. Years before it seemed they wouldn't make ANY adjustments.
3) AGREED BIG TIME! I think since it was Vidales's senior year they were letting him finish as QB. It would be hard to take the position away from him at this point though. We will be in good shape next year. I also couldn't believe we couldn't use Garrett effictively as WR and didn't even really line him out during the playoffs...
4) Agreed, LP didn't have the playmakers to really make something out of these types of playcalling. High risk and low reward. We weren't fooling anyone here!

1. There is no way Jordan Jackson can get that low and successfully handle snaps. I believe this is why there was so many fumbles when he was in the game in garbage time. They will have to make an adjustment here with no more 5-7 QB. Jackson is 6-2 and Victor Holmes is 5-11, maybe 6ft.

2. They did better this year as there were way fewer amounts of delay of game penalties. Also they are not a high tempo offense, but could do some of that next season with more passing involved.

3. He looked really sharp throwing in warm-ups. I think he will get the time he needs this off season and they will have him ready come district play next season. A fully returning offensive line and running backs will help too. Just throw a couple over the top to get that running game going.

4. There was some wild play calls, but they were getting creative due to the over-aggressiveness of the opposing defenses loading up on the running game. Reminds me of Harsin or Chip Kelly. It can be a good thing, but must be executed right.

Even when they put #12, he's about 6', in it was the same thing though. They really need to look at that for next year.

Right now is definitely a good time to be a Dawgs fan that is for sure. You guys have some real talent coming back next year and shouldn't be taken lightly by anyone that is for certain. I look forward to watching this team develope and hope to see the district stay as competitive as it was this season. That is of course assuming we all stay together which I suspect we will.

But when your up 21-0 after this first quarter, FB Bush, why do it when they aren't stopping your bread and butter?

That one was a mystery and looked like a broken play. I'm not even sure what they were going for there.

On district realignment, teams are going to be moving, but as it looks now LP would probably stay where they are being a far east side team.

Manvel is moving to 5A as well as League City Clear Falls. Someone will be moving in to the Pasadena schools district (probably Alvin and Manvel or Pearland) and possibly Deer Park may move to the current version of 21-5A. They could do all kinds of things, but I don't think LP has any control or say so where or if they will change districts and I would see it as highly doubtful they go to the Clear Lake. You never know though.

Indeed it is. They were forced into it because of a light senior class, but I think it could turn out to be a blessing the next few years. It was this year. The freshman team was outstanding this year and the 8th grade teams were great too.

May be possible but bear in mind that Manvel and Friendswood will likely be going to the 5A level which would be right in there area...

This maybe more of a comfort zone for the QB. I was a center in high school that ran the triple option. We had rotating QBs that liked to be low like that. Because it allowed them to make quicker off of the snap. I dunno if that is the case here, but it could be possible...

I know several people wondered why LP showed so much of their offense during the Bush game when they didn't need to. Simple answer to that question is if they do it, and it works for big yards, It's one more thing an opposing defense has to work on, so that mean less time to focus on LPs bread and butter plays...

Hope they work hard getting the exchange from center to qb fixed. Had ALOT of bad snaps this year that almost cost us some games.

So realignment got me to thinking. What happens in South/East Houston?

You have:
Clear Springs
Clear Lake
Clear Creek
Clear Brook
Clear Falls
Dickinson

Where do these teams go?
Friendswood?? Are they moving to 5A?
Brazoswood
Alvin
Manvel
Pearland

Pasadena
Pasadena Memorial
South Houston
Dobie
Sam Rayburn
Deer Park

La Porte
North Shore
Channelview
Baytown Sterling
Port Arthur Memorial
Beaumont West Brook

How many teams in each district?

LPBulldogBlog
12-06-2011, 11:07 AM
I could see La Porte moving if they do this

Friendswood??
Brazoswood
Alvin
Manvel
Pearland
Dickinson

Clear Springs
Clear Lake
Clear Creek
Clear Brook
Clear Falls
La Porte

Not sure what they do with everyone else in this case though.

There wasn't a problem after about 4 or 5 games. I watched all the film from this year. Still not bad for a first year on varisty player that never played center before. Honorable All District. :D

First, GREAT YEAR BULLDOGS!!! I really thought this would be a rebuilding year with all the youth. Boy, was I wrong. Your teamwork overcame many obstacles. Please, continue to grow as a team. The community is behind you all.
For those seniors moving on, thanks! Great years and something to always remember.

As far as 2012:
Personally, I see great returning lines on both sides of the ball with juniors and seniors. If Sophs & Frosh beat you out for playing time, they must be very good and deserving. Welcome them and assist. I see a very strong RB contingent returning. I see a young—but talented—QB stepping in for an underrated senior QB/P. The good news is that the young QB will have all the protection and assistance from the OL and running game he needs to develop.

I see a loss of leadership on the D side of the ball with replacements needed for the LB core & SS. However, LP has always had a strong D and I’m sure some are ready to step in. A leader will need to step up and remember that it’s teamwork and fundamentals again. The DL should be stout. A more experienced secondary will also be a big bonus.

I see a great returning kicking game again.

Coaching—to me—was a bright spot this year. Adjustments were timely and spot on. However, with the new QB, I’d personally love to see more of a 65-35 blend run/pass. The team will need the practice early on to familiarize themselves with a more varied pass/run O. LP needs to be able to throw the 10-15 yard routes well enough to keep opposing D’s honest with a long ball or two in for good measure. I liked the O style this year and the varied run packages presented. Perhaps, we just need to look and continue to develop the passing options off those formations.
I’m really excited about the Bulldogs in 2012 and think opponents are at the least envious, and at the most very nervous…

GREAT SEASON DAWGS!!!:yes:
WOOF !!! WOOF!!!

Does anyone see the D coordinator getting away from the 10+ yard cushion, and then back peddeling to 15, on the corners? I can see a 5-6 yard cushion but the 10+ cushion has got to go. PAM exploited that BIG time.

PAM exploited that BIG time.Hope so with a more experienced secondary in 2012. There were many times I was hoping for bump coverage since the DL & LB's were in so quickly. Timing for the opposing O would have been shot to heck. I'm not a big fan of the +10 for HS.

Perhaps the +10 was due to the speed factor of PAM in this specific game II matchup? Although, other opponents weren't near the threat and similar coverage was employed...

Hopefully, with the returning experience in the secondary, adjustments will be looked at per specific opponents.

The bump and run coverage really helped against Katy, it gave the front 7 that extra second to get to the QB. The corners were experienced enough late in the season to play closer.

I'm really excited about having a throwing QB in there. He's already running patterns after school with his receivers. If he can just hit open targets teams can't load the box like they have been and the offense will be unstoppable. The o-line should be able to keep him clean. They're going to be really good with another offseason of conditioning.

Heard a rumor that some kid from Chavez HS is moving to the LP area in the spring and the coaches are eyeing him as being the next QB and over looking #12. Can anyone shed some light on this? This would be a HUGE mistake if he is another running QB, Teams will load the box with 9 like PAM and Katy did. I would like to see them go with #12 sure he may not be as fast as #14 was but he has a HUGE upside in that he will be able to see the field over the O line and hit the receivers ON time in their routes. From the limited playing time he was given he looks as if he does have good speed and would be able to run the boot legs to either side of the field and be able to scramble if called onto.

I haven't heard anything about that. I'm sure the coaches know what they're doing either way.

At the beginning of the season they had #1 as the QB of the future. I guess #12 grew some and showed some great work ethic to work his way in.

Dawg82
12-08-2011, 11:25 AM
#1 could be a fantastic corner if he focused on that. He could also add a wonderful dimension as a 3rd down scatback. He should already be a key KO returner. Of course, as a 3rd down scatback, the OC would need to have plays to take advantage. I have visions of Snyder coached Kansas State teams...talk about a coach that gets more out of less...

#12 has yet to prove himself in varsity play. His chance to prove will come. He has the build. Does he have the talent and desire to prove? As far as that goes, does the OC have the plays and guts to take advantage? I think it would be nice to finally have a QB that might actually be able to see over the OL.

As far as any supposed move-ins, I won't address other than to say, there's a rumor out that I'm hooking up with Salma Hayek.:D

I think this spring will be huge for #12. He needs to get used to the speed and mental game of varsity play. If he can do that I see a very big upside to him. He is a great young man with a great head on those shoulders.

I like George Strait as well. Can't wait to see how the QB situation is going to shake out at La Porte.

Do you think the passing game will increase next year? Wow would that open up the offense!
Any speedy WR's coming up that can catch? No sense in having speed if they can't catch. BTW I'm not indicating that the LP WR's cannot catch just echoing what I have seen at Katy and other schools in the past

BTW...this isn't a homer pick entirely. LP has some great talent returning and good talent upcoming. They were a young squad this year. If they continue to meld as a team--put individuality aside--they are easily a force in 2012/13 at least. Stay tuned...

I will agree with you 100% on that. This years team played exactly like that a TEAM and I hope they continue that trait. Back in the days with C. Richards, O. Taylor, L. Harper and those guys they also played as a Team.
If we can get some of the younger guys to step up next year on the defensive side, to replace the outgoing Seniors, we should be in good shape. I like the look of the offense if we can get a 60-40 split on the Run/Pass ratio.
Go Dawgs!!

So far we have Aaron Nance-Garrett, Victor Holmes, Cameron Whilley and Hoza Scott up.

Scott is a turnover causing machine. Still can't believe we have him for two more years.

Any rumor updates on possible district moves?

According to Carl Padilla, Deer Park may be moving in.

District:
Deer Park
PA Memorial
La Porte
North Shore
Baytown Sterling
Westbrook
Channelview

Looks like 21-5A will drop to 4 districts games instead of 5.

Also he has Manvel and Alvin moving into 22-5A.

Yes, the talent is there--and should be in abundance in 2012/13--but the name brings with it expectations of immediacy, and I'm not sold on the community support. NS is different in some aspects that it's a very large enrollment school, has a history and tradition, but--I'm sorry--lackluster fans for the most part. The "town" doesn't get into it. In fact, what's the "town?"

You've been to LP games. It's just a different atmosphere. LP IS a town and comes out in force on football nights...

La Porte will have more depth than ever next season with such a small senior football class leaving.

La Porte lost some starters on defense. Linebacker replacement will be key.
North Shore is returning many impact players including QB Thomas
Port Arthur will be losing a lot. Incoming QB Fisk looks like a stud.
Deer Park is losing all of their skill players except WR Luna.
West Brook ??? Who even knows what they will do with the coaching change? QB Clack looked promising for next season.
Channelview is losing all of their skill players. Who do they have coming up? Back to 0-10 or 1-9?
Sterling is returning a bunch of players including WR Gibson. How will their running offense match up against all of these great defenses?

The more I think about it the more I think Sterling will be competitive next season. I don't think they will have the D to compete for the playoffs though.

I think their continuity--in the 2nd year with some talent--will make some inroads while some others are losing coaches, players, etc. I wouldn't bet against Massey as a gameplanner. DP has the enrollment to find talent to replace.

Of course, as I think about it, DP/PAM may be a toss-up. I'd give DP the edge because PAM lost so much on the lines and LB core. D will rule in 21-5A as usual.

If I were to rank the D's this early:
1. LP/NS tossup
2. DP
3. BWB
4. PAM
5. Sterling
6. Channelview

I agree. Defensively, though... I think PAM will still be pretty salty. I say LP, NS, and PAM... in that order. DP wasn't impressive when I saw them in 2011, and BWB has fallen off. Trust me... they have a long way to go. Sterling and C-view will be themselves.

They return more on D than PAM. D and Special Teams will win in 21-5A. O's will be the accessory--so to speak.
It also must be noted that--if 21-5A includes DP--4 major rivalries will be involved. DP/NS/LP/PAM. (I'd include PAM/BWB, but I don't know the full story.) I can't think of too many situations in districts involving this much hatred. I think BDC mentioned this already. Any of these games could go either way.

Interesting tidbit here: http://baytownsun.com/sports/article_f1d844a8-3d7d-11e1-8619-0019bb2963f4.html

Baytown Lee is "academically unacceptable". This allows students to transfer to other schools.

Not sure if transferring would be limited to inside the GCISD limits (Sterling or GC Memorial).

Athletes and students, if they have transportation can transfer to other schools.

Wonder if La Porte would be in the mix for any of them?

I assume they would transfer to other GCISD schools, but wonder what the rules are?

Big Daddy Cool
01-17-2012, 12:00 PM
I'm thinking they would have to transfer within the school district as you said. Which I'm sure most have already done if they were serious about football at the next level. Honestly with what you guys already have I can really see Lee having anyone that would be better than what you already have.

Just got back from our football banquet and the future looks bright! When the seniors stood up front I realized only 6 players actually played big roles on this team. So much talent coming back!!! Still worried about replacing those seniors on defense and who is going to play QB? I think #12 might be able too do it but that's what spring football and 7 on 7 is for. He needs to prove himself. And I think he will. I would love to keep #1 on defense but if #12 can't get it done #1 will have to make that move. Not for sure there is anyone behind these two guys at QB at the lower levels. Besides to be quite honest with the running backs we have just turn and hand off it got us 12-2 and in Reliant Stadium. We have three All-District lineman and the other two will be All-District next year. I am not saying we don't need to mix it up but we have always been a running team. Can't wait for spring ball!!!:)

Does anyone have any idea on Texas City as far as Academically Acceptable and/or enrollment for new realignment? Seems like a few coaching moves being locally made/tried this year. La Porte has tended to have continuity other than Mills. I hope it continues. It's one of the keys that LP has had that helps compete at the 5A level with the program size.

If Kay were to be selected it would certainly be a big blow to us that is for sure. A lof of people only think of as being a defensive coach, but I can tell you he has a good offensive mind as well. I'm hoping they don't pick him, but if they do I know he'll do a good job.

I heard the same about Massey and Texas City from a LP coach.

It doesn't really make sense to me that he would want that move from one of the top 20 populated HS's in the state to a 4A school in one of the toughest districts in the state.

I think DP folks won't be too sad about it though.

With the right coach DP could be a superior program.

Massey, Abercrombie, and Kay (sounds like a Law Firm!) all have very good gigs at 5A level schools. Surovik and Nelms would debatably improve their personal position. This is only true if TC gains in their academic situation. I don't tend to put much stock into GDN, and--if true--this story could be big news.


My thoughts:

Massey would have a hard time relating to TC kids and it would be a step down to 4A or less.
Kay should be in line at NS for HC/AD.
Abercrombie and Hightower generally has good talent. Are they moving to 4A? For that matter, what the heck is going on in FBISD?

As far as your second statement, IMO DP is a weak southeast sister to the Woods. (Similar mentality and population attitude.)

DP needs a coach to come in and really instill some attitude. I'm not sure the community will allow though. Heck, I'm not sure it would take with the team.

They can continue to look down on us in LP, NS, etc. from their perch as far as I'm concerned. Meantime, I'll still assist/direct them in their job duties M-F.;)

Here's our non district schedule for those interested.


Clear Springs

Manvel

Cinco Ranch

MadisonThat's a good schedule when combined with 21-5A District. CS will test both of our D's. Manvel's tough as is CR. Blogmaster says we have P Dawson in scrimmage. I'd correlate to Manvel talent level.

Y'all have Madison and we have South Houston. This is going to be a very interesting year.

He's a JV pitcher, so he's all football right now including spring practice and 7on7.

They had a small warm up tournament a couple weeks ago and they thumped Deer Park, Goose Creek Memorial and 2 other teams. Beat all of them by 3 TDs.

He's sharp in passing drills. Backup QB isn't too shabby either.

I stopped by after I finish my errands in the 'dena. LP is looking good, couple of ball handling problems, but something that can easily be fixed. I was impressed with that goal line stance by the defense (assuming 2nd D since no Scott on the field, correct me if i'm wrong). Would really like to see Hoza serve as a primary LB instead of an RB. I don't like when RBs run backwards, just too risky for me. But 3rd down sitchy-ations could work out for a back like him, a kid who can pound through a line and fast :eek:. I'm assuming Keith Whitley will get the majority of the touches as an RB? Should be an interesting and competitive year for 21-5A, can't wait.

I was really impressed with how they handled Dawson. Dawson couldn't get a pass completed against our first D. This was without LP blitzing, so the front 3 ate up that Dawson line.

Very hard hitting scrimmage. La Porte will be bringing the wood again this season.

Offense looked great running the ball, huge holes and RB's look stronger and have some moves.

Passing game should be moving by the time district rolls around, but you could see when a team crowds the line like last season things will be different.

Overall they are ready for Clear Brook and South Houston.

They are going to be fun to watch this year. The lines on both sides of the ball look great.

Unfortunately we could knock off the tigers this year. We'll see several of LPs players moving onto play college football, which says a lot about where the LP program has gone the past few years. Now the question is how will we fair in the coming season? Spring time will be here before we know it. And I can not wait for yet another Bulldog run for glory! Go DAWGS!!

I think that going with a spread offense would be a good thing. I just think that JJ needs to work on his speed in the off season. Has anyone suggested to him some workouts to increase his speed. I think that if he is able to increase his 40 time, he will be force to be reckoned with. Being able to scramble to buy more time to find the open receiver would benefit him greatly. Or just having the threat of being able to pull the ball down and take off running would make defenses have to respect that threat.

First things first, great season for all the teams from freshman A/B, JV O/W and the third round Varsity, Hold all of your heads high you all had a great season in 2012!
I see for next year an even stronger D with the returners coming back for 2013 and the meat coming up from the JV, I think there will be a heck of a fight for them 3 spots down front. Good luck to all of you in spring and Work Hard! Cant wait for it to get started.

Jordan has already made the decision to stay in the 5th period football class so that he can hit the weight room instead of going over to the baseball class. He was very upset after the loss to Katy, and felt he was the reason we lost the game. After a few days of no football talk and a little time to get over the hurt, he is already talking to some of the young receivers about throwing routes again. Jordan will start back working with his QB coach once a week from January until spring ball starts back up. During these workouts the coach will work with Jordan on everything from film study, pocket presence, speed drills, and of course throwing from every possible position and situation. As a father, I watched Jordan more closely than anyone else. The growth that he showed as a leader on that team was astounding. Jordan will work as hard as anyone coming back next year. Jordan has never really been given the option to run the ball in our offense. Now don't get me wrong, Jordan only runs a 5.0 40yd, but extending the plays by moving from the pocket or on designed roll outs will be a focus for him this year. he will be incouraged to pull the ball down and run to gain what ever yardage that may be available. Jordan really blossomed as a QB as the year went on IMO. He began to understand the importance of blocking down field, he became more vocal in the hudle, and he tried to minimize the mental mistakes that lead to turn overs.

I am hoping that the coaching staff will make a better effort to get the passing game more involved. Play action on 1st and 2nd down works much better than 3rd and long. The last week of practice while preparing for katy, they had developed several passing and running plays from a spread formation that they already had. The entire week the offense looked very crisp and confident running out of this formation, but when game time would come we never used any of these plays. I know that La Porte has and probably will always be a run first team, but to not utilized the strength of your players is a little baffeling.

Anyways, Congrats to all the kids on a great year and good luck to all the seniors that will be moving on. With jordan coming back for his senior year and his younger brother moving up to play offensive line... maybe center, I am already excited thinking about next years team.

Everyone knows that games are won and lost in the trenches. We will need a lot of the Soph and Juniors to step up next year and learn quickly. We do have Mike Leagan returning next season and Logan told me that he and some of the other linemen plan on doing some workouts with Big Mike on their own. Lots of young talented big guys coming up from the freshman group. Will be very interesting to see how all of the position battles play out during spring ball.

I agree with you on Jordan's development throughout the season. You could really see him becoming the leader on the offensive side of the ball as well. I am really excited about what next year brings and I know that Jordan is going to work hard to make himself even better, you can see his hunger. Jimmy, I know you're extremely proud of your boys and you should be. It will doubly as special next year with Logan snapping it to Jordan.

C/O 2014 off to a good start in recruiting!

Victor Holmes - Offered by Iowa State - will have plenty of offers
Jordan Jackson- North Texas is hot on his tail. A good senior season should get him some more D1 offers with his size/arm.
Oh yeah, there is a Aggie commitment too

It is true. I saw him at DT, DE and was told he plays some TE on offense. Interesting offseason LP is having. Practice is very high tempo with music blaring.

high tempo? hmmmmm........thats far from the norm by you guys.I wouldn't confuse "high tempo" with wide open spread. I'd say passing game options were being worked on. I'd say a two minute offense--when needed--may be a very good option this year. A quick glance seemed to show a driven team. ;)

Nothing changing in the offense... same old Wing T, run for 3 yards in a cloud of dust. We probably won't win four games all year.
