* This season will be a challenge without superstar Bralon Addison leading the way

  • Mike Says: The Hurricanes have been a dominant Houston area team if not in the state over the pas few seasons. This year, they may not make it to the championship but they will be pretty good. On offense they bring back several runners that will keep them moving the chains. The strength of the defense will be the secondary. Look for them to go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season and battle Fort Bend Bush for the district title. After that they should go 1 or 2 rounds in the playoffs.
  • Chris Says: Fort Bend Hightower lost a lot in the offseason, but is still a solid team.  Only 4 starters return and none of them is Bralon Addison.  In addition, they lost their head coach, Barry Abercrombie.  So no, the Hurricanes will not be playing in the state title game this year.  The will however, win District 23-5A but fade quickly in the postseason.
