Joseph Broadnax

Dallas Bryan Adams vs. Dallas Roosevelt; Thursday August 28th; 7:00pm – Forester Field – Dallas

Broadnax and the Cougars hope to see a repeat performance from a year ago when they beat Roosevelt 31-14. Bryan Adams has one of the top defensive fronts in Dallas ISD.

Alec Dunham

Coldspring – Oakhurst @ Huntsville; Friday August 29th, 7:30pm – Huntsville

Dunham missed most of the 2013 season due to injury but he’s now back at 100% and ready to showcase his abilities on both sides of the ball. Huntsville features offensive lineman Ronnie Major, a Texas commit and Arizona State commit Morie Evans.

Darrion Flowers

Sam Houston @ Manor; Saturday, August 30th, 8:00pm – Manor

Flowers and his Sam Houston teammates face a tough opponent in their 2014 opener as they travel three hours to face a loaded Manor team that finished 9-2 in 2013. Manor is led by 2016 defensive end Erick Fowler, who received an offer from TCU a few weeks ago.

Mike Freeze

Graham vs. Vernon; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Graham

Graham is primed to make a run at the Class 4A Division 1 title in 2014 after they finished just one game shy in 2013. The Steers return seven starters on defense led by Freeze. They face an excellent non-district opponent in Vernon, who also had a successful 2013 campaign going 10-3 on the year.

Jeff Gladney

New Boston vs. Atlanta; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Atlanta

Twelve starters return for a very talented New Boston team that finished 13-2 in 2013. The Lions will be led by Gladney, who is a star on both sides of the ball.

Tre'vontae Hights

Yoakum vs. Marion; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Marion

Yoakum hopes to improve from a 4-6 mark in 2013 and with Hights back at quarterback and safety they have a chance to do just that. Beating Marion will be a tough task as the Bulldogs return seven starters from a 9-3 team in 2013.

Cordel Iwuagwu

Spring Westfield vs. Manvel; Thursday, August 28th, 7:00pm – George Stadium

In arguably the best game of Week 0 in the Houston area, there will be a ton of talent on the field Thursday night when these two teams collide. Westfield finished 13-1 in 2013 while Manvel finished 12-2. Both are regarded as top 15 teams in Class 6A.

Tony James

Arlington Bowie vs. Dallas Jesuit; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Arlington Wilemon Field

Bowie hopes to bounce back from a disappointing 7-4 mark in 2013 while Jesuit is a darkhorse contender to make a run this season with ten starters returning from a 9-4 team. Tony James returns under center this season after backing up Keaton Perry in 2013. James was the district sophomore of the year in 2012 after racking up nearly 3,000 yards of offense at quarterback.

Julius Lewis

Mansfield at Flower Mound Marcus; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Flower Mound

Lewis is a star on both sides of the ball, especially on offense where he used his 4.3 speed to rush for 1,200 yards in 2013. Marcus finished just 2-9 in 2013, but returns 17 starters and is led by Texas A&M commit Keaton Sutherland and 2016 studs Kaden Smith and Andrew Fitzgerald who are both receiving major college interest.

Breylin Mitchell

Round Rock at Temple; Friday August 29th, 7:30pm – Temple

This is one of the most anticipated matchups in central Texas in Week 0. Temple won the 2013 contest 48-42. Mitchell had 90 tackles in 2013 and will have to bring his “A” game to combat Temple’s Chad President, a Baylor commit.

Niko Small

Arlington Bowie vs. Dallas Jesuit; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Arlington Wilemon Field

Small and his Bowie secondary teammates will get a tough test in their 2014 opener as they battle Central Florida commit Bo Schneider, who threw for over 3,000 yards and 30 scores in 2013.

Jarrison Stewart

Mesquite Horn vs. McKinney Boyd; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Hanby Stadium; Mesquite

Stewart hopes to surpass 1,000 receiving yards as a senior after hauling in 775 yards in 2013. Throwing to him will be sophomore sensation Chris Robison, who was offered by TCU earlier this summer. Boyd returns twelve starters from a 7-5 team in 2013.

J.F. Thomas

South Oak Cliff vs. Cedar Hill; Saturday, August 30th, 7:30pm – Dallas Kincaide Stadium

SOC has a plethora of talent on both sides of the ball. The only problem is so does Cedar Hill. This game is a college recruiter’s dream with nearly 20 prospects from both rosters combined holding major college offers. Thomas hauled in 15 touchdowns in 2013 and will face a tough secondary from the defending state champs, which is led by Tennessee commit Darrell Miller.

Semaje Thomas

Ft. Worth Southwest vs. Saginaw Boswell; Friday, August 29th, 7:00pm – Boswell

Thomas and his Southwest teammates bring in a stout defense that returns six starters. Boswell returns eight starters from an 8-4 team from a year ago and are led by defensive tackle Dominic Hill.


Jonathan Marshall

Shepherd vs. Cleveland; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Shepherd

Marshall and his Shepherd teammates open the season against a rising Cleveland team that returns 16 starters from a 7-3 playoff team from a year ago.

Brennen Wooten

Marble Falls vs. Burnet; Friday, August 29th, 7:30pm – Marble Falls

Marble Falls finished just 4-6 in 2013, but one of those wins was a dramatic 56-51 win over Burnet. Wooten, who threw for over 3,000 yards as a sophomore, shredded the Burnet defense for 409 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2013. He’s hoping to do the same this Friday, but 13 starters return for a team that went 9-4 a year ago.
