Mike Says: I have been waiting all year for this game.  I have seen both teams in action and they are both very talented.  Manvel features a two quarterback system with Julian Walker and Shane McCarley.  Walker is also one of the teams leading rushers.  They have a very good offensive line with Travis Romero, Taylor Romero, Simon Curiel and Cody Gonzalez.  The Maverick defense is headed up by LB Chris Dismuke and DL Glynn Cheeks.  The Eagles stumbled last week against La Marque in a surprise loss but I don't think it brings down the hype that this game has.  It will be a classic!!!  The last week of regular season football!!!  This is what it is all about.  The MAVERICKS win 34-27!!!

Chris Says:  I have learned a valuable lesson about picking against Manvel... namely, don't do it!  Even if I hadn't had that opportunity to learn, I would be hard pressed to pick against them this week.  No, its not because Pearland Dawson has anything less than a great team - they are loaded and look to make a good playoff run.  It's just that Manvel is outright amazing.  Look at like-opponents, Manvel performed better that Dawson in every single one.  Manvel Mavericks take the district and WIN 35-28!!!
