  • Who are the 5a div1 favorites this year?

    I think Manor could be a sleeper team.
    I saw some of their juniors and sophomores play when they were in middle school. They were good.

    I'd think Highland Park would have to a favorite. I'd think Denton Ryan would be in the mix again? What about Shadow Creek, they had that crazy run last year... can they do it again? Hows Cedar Park looking this year? I remember last year was a bit of a down year for them.

    I'm not too knowledgeable about who's who in 5a, so i might be off the mark or missing quite a few.

      I think Richmond Foster and Shadow Creek are going to be the teams to beat this year in R3. East Texas should have 2 very good teams in Tyler John Tyler and Lufkin.

        Ah yes Highland Park. I just picked up the DCTF magazine today and they have them pre-season ranked #1. A quick glace also looks like they have one of the largest rosters in the state regardless of classification. I'll keep an eye on fellow region 2 team Frisco Lone Star. They only lost to them by a FG last year.

          Wagner loses their QB Tobias Weaver to the Naval Academy, but they have RB LJ Butler and DE DeMarkus Hendricks both All-State selections. They are Region 4 favorites to get back to the Semis and hopefully get revenge on Shadow Creek in a rematch.

            Their game vs 6A Judson is one of the top matchup on DCTF. Gave the Rockets their hardest match in the regular season and are Judson ISD rivals.

              From the north, Denton Ryan and Highland Park are probably the favorites along with some other usual suspects (Frisco Lone Star, Lancaster, Mansfield Timberview). Tyler John Tyler should be very good from out east.

              A couple of dark horse teams to watch from up here:

              Birdville returns a good quarterback, a hoss running back, some good receivers, and a lot of a really good defense. A tough out for anybody.
              Azle also has a bunch back from a really good team

                HP should be the favorite until someone knocks them off.

                  I saw an article that said HP has 3 QBs that have college offers.

                      I just watched the Manor at Weslaco East(6A) game on youtube. Manor dominated the 1st qtr and a half and led 15-0. Then held Weslaco East on a 3rd and long but had an unsportsmen penalty after the play so Weslaco East keeps the ball and drives down and scores right before half to make it 15-7. Manor looked gassed after that and Weslaco scores the next 22pts on toss sweeps and qb runs and a pick 6 to make it 15-29 midway thru the 4th. Theres a 2 minute water break and then Manor rallies thru the air to tie it up and force overtime. Weslaco East makes a fg and Manor throws an int to end it in overtime.
                      Many penalties on Manor and the line looked tired midway thru the game.
                      They will have to play more discipline if they want to go far.

                        What about the Flour Bluff Hornets from Corpus Christi area? I saw them last Friday night and they looked good. I don't think they make it to Region though. What are ya'lls thoughts on that District in 5A? I think they are D1 District 15.

                          Region 2 is absolutely loaded with Frisco Lone Star, Highland Park, and Lancaster (only losses to Duncanville and Highland Park in overtime).

                          Region 1 looks to be Denton Ryan's to lose. There are some other good teams (Azle, Birdville, Crowley, Colleyville Heritage, Abilene Cooper) but I don't think any of them hang with Ryan.

                            Manor has lots of talent and size, they have more talent than their record indicates.

                              Well Flour Bluff won 42-7.

                              OK Carl. Thanks for the input.
