Rosenberg Terry State Qualifying Tournament Pools

Hopefully, we will not get the rain like we did in 2003. Photo taken by Chris Doelle.

Here are the pools, breakdowns and of course my predictions for the Rosenberg Terry State Qualifying Tournament this weekend.

Pool A: Fort Bend Dulles, Rosenberg Terry, Houston Bellaire, Houston Westside

Houston Bellaire has already qualified with a runner up finish at the Texans (Saturday) SQT. They have a 3-2 record Fort Bend Dulles has gone 1-2 this year but their win was against pool opponent Houston Bellaire 26-20. They will be led by DB's C.J. Love and Zach McMillian. Host Rosenberg Terry has gone 2-1 this year in SQT play while Houston Westside led by RB Frank Williams, WR Jordan Sampso, LB's Kevin Rodriguez and Chad Thompson have gone 0-3.

Mike's Pick: Fort Bend Dulles

Pool B: Crosby, Richmond Foster, Katy Cinco Ranch, Houston Memorial

Katy Cinco Ranch looks to be the leader in this pool. Led by Rice commit LB James Radcliffe they are 2-1 in SQT play. Crosby, Richmond Foster and Houston Memorial will be battling it out for 2nd place.

Mike's Pick: Katy Cinco Ranch

Pool C: Katy, Houston Strake Jesuit, Rosenberg Lamar Consolidated, Fort Bend Austin

The 2008 Division II Champin Katy has tons of talent. RB Will Jeffrey (1483 yards rushing in 2008), QB Michael Stojkovic, WR Ryan James, Stanford commit TE Zachary Swanson and DB Sam Holl will lead the way. Houston Strake Jesuit, Rosenberg Lamar Consolidated and Fort Bend Austin will be fighting it out for 2nd place just like the teams in pool B.

Mike's Pick: Katy

Pool D: Waller, Alvin Manvel, Katy Mayde Creek, Fort Bend Travis

Waller has gone 0-2 but will keep the games close. Alvin Manvel has been impressive going 5-2 in SQT play making it to the semifinals at their SQT. They will be led by WR SaQwan Edwards and DB Forrest Jones. Fort Bend Travis will feature WR Michael Warren and 3 star recruit DB Chad Moncure. Katy Mayde Creek will be competitive.

Mike's Pick: Alvin Manvel
