  • Texas high school footballMike Says: These two teams combined for a 5-2 record last year in the games of the week including their week 0 match-up last year. Aledo won that game big. This years game may be a little closer but will end with the same result. The BEARCATS win it 24-20!!
  • Texas high school footballChris Says: Another great Week Zero matchup that will be a must-have ticket.  I have these two ranked so closely that the difference in this one will likely be one bounce of the ball.  The Dallas Highland Park Scots have a team capable of winning this game, but I have to go with my rankings that shows Aledo just a fraction better.  BEARCATS take the victory 28-24!!
  • Texas high school footballLSG Intern Zach Says: Hate to agree with Chris and Mike this often, but I have to go Aledo. This is a matter of proven talent going up against a few question marks. The Scots graduated a lot of talent (all but one offensive player) from a team that couldn’t keep up with the Bearcats last season. That said, Highland Park is never a pushover and will keep it close with a sound defense. Bearcats 20-10.

    You are welcome to compete head-to-head in all the picks this season and see how much better you do! 🙂

    Rest assured, you have not heard the last of Dallas Highland Park this season. Game 1 rarely features both teams playing at the top of their game – a lot of very close teams are in blowouts and a lot of expected blowouts are close – after 25 years of playing, officiating, following and covering Texas high school football, I don’t put anything on the results of a Game 1 for any team.

What are your thoughts?
