7 on 7 — Texans Division I SQT Pools and Picks (Sun)

Houston Chavez will be the host of the Houston Texans 7-on-7 SQT this Sunday May 23rd. This event will be held at the Methodist Training Center and as always it will be a well run event. If you have not been to this SQT this is one of the best, the Chavez coaches come out and do a great job. Also, just like in the past, this SQT will not be lacking in quality teams. Here are the pools, players to watch and of course out predictions.

Pool A : Langham Creek Montgomery Spring The Woodlands

Langham Creek, Spring and The Woodlands all made the state tournament last season. Montgomery went 2-4 in SQT play last season but will bring lots of talent like QB Tyler Bolfing, RB Leroy Dobbins (2629 yards 24 TDS rushing), WR Mitchell Buick and WR Arrius Holleman. The Woodlands will be led by QB Joseph Schneider and superstar RB Daniel Lasco (1520 yards 17 TDs). Spring and Langham Creek always bring the talent and will be competitive in every game.
