Need proof of that? The seven Fort Bend ISD schools that reached the playoffs last season won their opener. And Stafford High did, too.
The Star’s football preview is just the beginning of our comprehensive sports coverage of 11 Fort Bend ISD schools, along with Fort Bend Christian and Stafford.
The University Interscholastic League has created a 6A classification for the first time in its history, and Hightower, Austin, Clements, Travis, Kempner and Dulles will play in 6A-23, along with the three Alief ISD schools.
But 5A-23 will actually be the more competitive district with 5A state contenders Elkins and Ridge Point leading the way. Bush, Marshall, and Texas City will contend for a playoff spot, while Willowridge is going to surprise some people.
Stafford will look to duplicate its success under second-year head coach Ron Counter at the 4A level, and Fort Bend Christian hopes to build upon a 7-3 season.
Blue chip prospects, talented teams and state titles hopes will define the 2014 season, and we’re glad you’ll be here to follow it with us.
