  • Mike Says: The Redskins are always a strong team in the Houston area. This year will be no different as they bring back 11 starters and 31 lettermen. Quarterback Colbert will be a fun one to watch. Look for them to go 8-2 or 7-3 in the regular season and win the district championship. Once in the playoffs, they will be Division I and will be good for 2 or 3 rounds.
  • Chris Says: Houston Lamar manages to put a great team on the field year in and year out.  In 27 years, Coach Tom Nolen has only missed the playoffs once in 24 years and it looks like that will be 25 by the end of this season.  The Redskins bring back a lot of experience as well as nearly half of their starters.  Lamar will win District 20-5A and have another nice playoff showing.
