  • Mike Says: The Oilers where knocked out in surprise fashion last year in Bi-District play. I am sure that is on their minds this year. They bring back 7 all-district players including the District Defensive MVP LB Justin Phillips. Look for them to battle Manvel for the district title and finish the season 8-2 or 9-1. Once in the playoffs, they should go two or three rounds.
  • Chris Says: Coach Tony Heath always manages to restock the Oilers squads and put a district contender on the field.  This year will be no different.  For a Pearland team to advance past the first or second round usually follows them having a strong running game.  That is the question this year... will Hayden Cole and Jacolbie Butler be that 1 - 2 punch?  Expect this Oiler team to be in the District 22-5A battle with Manvel and put on a much stronger playoff run than last season.

    This team has a lot of key players who weren’t mentioned here including the starting quarterback Kalen Johnson who has currently been offered by Howard and Yale University although he was the back-up last year. Also receivers Carter Jefferson and Jacoby Lewis who will definitely put up big numbers. Most people will be surprised by the firepower of this team offensively. Hint: It will be much more than 2012.
