This weekend will begin a new high school football season. I am particularly looking forward to Friday evening as my step-son plays high school football for Seven Lakes High School here in Katy, TX. We actually live in the Grand lakes subdivision which is part of the Katy school district. Last season Seven Lakes was sadly zero wins and 10 losses. However, last year was their first varsity football season and thay had NO seniors. Their schedule was a total killer with 8 out of the 10 teams they played all reaching the high school playoffs. Friday evening Seven Lakes plays Clements High School (Sugarland School) at Mercer Stadium. It should be a good game even if we lose again. Clements is a 5A team who is picked to win its conference and loaded with excellent players while Seven Lakes is a 4A team that still a very young program and no varsity level wins under their belts.
If you are new to the area or have never had the time to attend game, I recommend going to a Friday night high school football game. Texas high school football is a special event that is difficult to describe and can only be experienced to really enjoy. The teams are fun to watch, the marching bands and music are really special and Drill Teams/Cheerleaders add a lot of spirit. The cost to attend is cheap by todays sporting events standards and I personally believe YOU will have FUN!!!!
The High Shiool season actually begins this evening with one of the top match ups being played between Stratford and Cy Fair. Both teams are excellent with star players. Stratford has Andrew Luck at quarterback (son of former Oilers QB Oliver Luck) and Cy Fair has star running back Sam McGuffie. Their will be a live web cast of this game at chron.com/highschool. This should be great game and a perfect way to start a new season.
I HOPE TO SEE ALL OF YOU AT GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
