DL Samuel Ukwuachu 34 tackles 2 sacks Boise State Commitment TOP 25 DL

Notes:
The Oilers will once again be one of the top teams in the Houston area this season. Their will not be able to dominate their district like they have in the past with Clear Springs and Brazoswood being contenders. DL Ukwuachu will be a good one to watch coming off his end position. Expect the Oilers to go 8-2 or 9-1 and then make it to the Area or Regional round of the playoffs. A possible bi-district opponent could be Fort Bend Hightower which would make things interesting.
