Mike Says: In Division I, Denton Ryan is once again picked to make the championship game but Manvel will be there to knock them out. Dallas Highland Park and Richmond Foster both have good chances at making it also. In Division II, can anyone beat Aledo? We do not think so. This year they will face a newbie in College Station. College Station and Corpus Christi Calallen will once again match up in the semifinals which was a great game last year. Fort Bend Marshall has lots of talent and could also challenge.

Chris Says: Is this the year that Manvel fulfills their destiny and goes all the way? It certainly looks like it could be.  Don't get me wrong, Denton Ryan is not going to roll over for them but it looks like a great battle. I actually think the matchup against Richmond Foster could go either way as well. In Division II, Aledo is just too loaded with Bishops - QB, Jake marks the latest in a line of brothers to run the offense at Aledo. His two older brothers have 5 state championships between them and he won't be happy until he earns his. The threat from College Station however is real - they could upset the Title Town apple cart en route to their first title. Don't sleep on Calallen or Fort Bend Marshall either though.
