  • Mike Says: The Oilers are always a strong Houston area team and this year will be no different. They will be very talented on both sides of the ball. Look for them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season with their main competition in district coming from Manvel. They will go Division I and have a great shot at winning the region.
  • Chris Says: Pearland is one of those teams that I have loved to follow for the past fifteen years or so.  Tony Heath has done some amazing work there and always puts a quality team on the field.  This year, expect the Oilers to rock District 22-5A and be in the hunt with Manvel for the title.  They will go strong into the playoffs and be alive several rounds in.
