    Default Houston area Top 10 for 2008

    What do you guys think so far? Eventually I will break down all the teams in the area when I get some free time, but as of now, I think the top 3 teams will be:

    1.Cy-Ridge: Finished 11-2 and returns probably the most dangerous threat in the area Russel Sheppard(794 yards passing, 1525 rushing) and tailback Hasan Lipscomb(1625 yards rushing).


    2.Esienhower: Finished 8-4 returns gunslinger Kenneth Guiton(2500 yards passing) and a Stoud defense.


    3. North Shore: finished 14-1 and returns several key players on BOTH sides of the ball.

    Who else in the Houston area will make noise?

    In no particular order...

    Lamar
    Klein Oak
    Cy-Ridge
    Cinco Ranch
    North Shore
    FB Hightower
    Eisenhower
    Katy
    Pasadena Memorial
    The Woodlands

    Those are just a few that come to mind that could possibly make the top 10. There are probably a few others.

    I think Cinco has a really good chance of coming on strong this year, and Cy-Ridge is definately going to be a terror.

    What about Conroe?

    Not sure...but I was looking at Bmt. Westbrook also....they have some high profile guys returning as well.

    Houston Area in 2008:

    1) Cy Ridge
    2) North Shore
    3) "Ike" Eisenhower
    4) Beaumont West Brook
    5) Katy
    6) Pearland
    7) Klein Oak
    8) FB Hightower
    9) Cy Falls
    10) Spring Westfield

    Outside looking in: Pasadena Memorial, Deer Park, Klein HS, Clear Lake


    That's how it looks so far. I'll take a look at some scrimmages and practices and perhaps swap some teams around.

    Isn't Katy playing 3 out the 4 from your top 4, with Katy being 5? Hmm, guess we will finally get to actually prove something on the field. Can't wait. The season is shaping up, when do we start again:cry

    North Shore is too high on those lists... they have plenty coming back but we dont even know who thier QB will be... probably tillman.... who has very very little varsity game experience.... i dont think i have ever even seen him throw the ball or run..... hes just handed off in garbage time...how the QB performs will dictate this season and thats a big question mark.....

    Hope you're right about Cinco. Because it would be a good yardstick for our young team when we play them in Wk 3.

    With all that talent NS has coming back, you can plug ME at QB and the team will be great. From the outside looking in, that team is STACKED.

    Clear Lake is going to have a pretty good defense this year. Their D-Line is looking excellent.

    We shall see. Their offense may surprise some people. They have a tough RB coming back, and a QB that should be pretty good as well.

    I'm not sure about the D though.

    Klein Oak at #7, how can that be? They lose both DeSean and T-Rob. Those are tough to replace. Any insight? I like the falls pick. Go Eagles!!

    What else you got on Tillman?
    We're gonna have a pretty good team, but you're right...we'll see how the QB works out.

    For Klein Oak, I believe most of their line-up will look like this, in 2008:

    Offense looks like this:

    QB-Wilson (6'1 205) (Look for Wilson to be a possible D1 QB in 2010!)
    WR/TE-Navjar (6-6 230)
    RB-Cook Brothers/plus Williams (all are 5-9/5-10 185-190)
    OT-Weaver (6-4 350)
    OT-Naron (6-5 280)
    OG-Forsch (6'4 280)

    OG-Benditz (6'1 260)/OG-Koch (6'2 250)
    C-Coleman (6-5 240)

    Defense looks like this:

    DT-Taylor (6-1 310)
    DT-Husdain (6-1 260)
    DE-Davis (6'3 245)

    DE-Cooke (6'2 215)
    LB-Bell (6-0 190)
    LB-Corcoran (6-0 210)
    LB-Gilliam (5-10 205)
    CB-Mayweather (5-9 175)
    CB-Palmer (5-9 170)
    S-Muncie (6-2 190)

    S-Williams (5-11 185)

    BOLD indicates who should be D1 prospect, in 2008.

    Believe it or not, but I believe Oak will have just as salty of a bunch, in 2008, as they did in 2007. ALL of the players, listed, got playing time in 2007, and most had significant roles.

    Kolby will be one of the best QB's in the state.....
    God willing and he stays injury free - he will definitely be one of the best out there for next season. He is so good already and he was still growing last I saw - he's starting to hit Andrew Luck size!! Shepard at Ridge will be one to watch too - he's scary good.

    We lost some amazing receivers and Shane Turner but we have at least one good WR returning in Zachary Gilmore who had quite a few touches last season. Not sure about Eric Williams - he started off with a bang last year at tight end (or possibly WR - he didn't play too many games) I believe and then was gone for the rest of the season so if he's returning - that adds some speed to the line up too. Also, Christian Norris at RB was starting to heat up a bit at year end so he should be pretty productive as well. Many of the Jr's from last season and some Sophs got quite a lot of playing time too so that helps out. Add in any talented move-in's or underclassmen and it's shaping up quite nicely. On defense I want to add Soph Anthony Brown - he played A LOT and had some good tackles but, more than that (and he doesn't even know this) I've known him since he was a little boy but we had all lost touch over the years - didn't realize until I was talking with his mom that he was on the team!! So, I wish him all the best next season too!

    My Early 2008 Houston Area Top 10 are as follows:

    1. North Shore
    2. Katy
    3. Cy Ridge
    4. Aldine Eisenhower
    5. Beaumont West Brook
    6. Pearland
    7. Klein Oak
    8. Cy Falls
    9. Woodlands
    10. Spring Westfield

    If you include Lufkin with the Houston Area, I would have to place them somewhere near the top. Other teams certainly able to break into the Top 10 would be Humble, Klein Forest, Strake Jesuit, Deer Park, and Fort Bend Hightower. 2008 is going to be an interesting season in Texas 5A high school football.
