Flower Mound (Texas) vs Lewisville (Texas) Hebron
Star running back Dez Wortham was out with an injury and it gave senior running back Vandy Parkes and junior stud Jamal Adams the chance to get some carries. It was a tough hard fought game, but in the end Hebron pulled out a tough 27-20 victory. Hebron really played well up front on offense led by top 2015 prospect Zach Rogers, who already holds offers from Arkansas and Texas Tech. On the defensive side of the line keep an eye on junior defensive lineman Daniel Wise, the younger brother of 2012 Arkansas signed Deatrich Wise.

Richmond (Texas) Bush vs Missouri City (Texas) Elkins
It came down the final moments in the game, but it was Bush that outlasted Elkins to pull out a 29-22 win. Bush junior quarterback Ronald Monroe had a somewhat quiet night going 6-for-11 for 69 yards, which included a 17-yard touchdown. From a management standpoint, he looks solid by getting out of the pocket when it was necessary. He showed great mobility.
On the defensive side, Chad Davis proved once again that he is a Division I caliber defensive back. Going against two solid commitments in Elkins wide receivers Darvin Kidsy and J'Mon Moore (which will get to shortly), Davis held his own. He's a great boundary cornerback who doesn't play a lot of press coverage, but does get physical once the receiver has taken that initial step off the line. This is done within the allotted the five yards. Davis ended the night with seven tackles and an interception. He didn't have many updates going on recruiting wise, but did provide us with an update which will be published this week.
For Elkins, there were more than a few solid performances despite the loss. At linebacker Keree Renchie, was a player who for about two quarters made all of the tackles. And though there is some exaggeration, Renchie ended up with about a dozen tackles. From the outside linebacker, he was able to make plays when the ball was away from him, showing great lateral movement with his feet. When he gets to the ball carrier, he brings some heat with him as well. Look for an update on him as well.
Kidsy, the North Texas commitment, was electric on this night with 115 receiving yards and a touchdown. He was most impressive in the short-yard passes, which he turned into larger plays. His route running is crisp and is an absolute steal as a college player. Moore, who is headed to Missouri, has improvement on his game much over the past couple of years. It looks as though he is embracing his role as the No. 1 receiver. Though he is not a big-framed kid, he plays with that kind of mentality. He comes off the ball hard and for the most part can be considered a possession receiver, but he can make a play or two in space. If the ball is near, he will catch it. He kept several drives alive with third and fourth-down catches. Moore showed strong hand and is not afraid to catch in traffic, which is a plus seeing that he constantly draws the double team.
