DISTRICT OUTLOOK:

Dickinson’s 13-1 record was one of the state’s biggest surprises, many had thought that the Gators would begin to ascend among the elite in the Houston area but the rise was a year quicker than expected. Now with a load of returning experience and four playoff games under their belts Dickinson has designs on a Region III title. The biggest key for Dickinson will be how their new QB steps in and pilots the offense, he’ll have weapons galore and one of the most physical defensive units around. Dickinson has long been viewed as a sleeping giant, but now they appear to be wide awake. Clear Creek and Friendswood look to be locked in a battle for the second spot, both teams have big time firepower on the offensive side of the ball so it’ll come down to which team’s defense can step up and consistently get stops. Clear Springs, which has been a consistent winner since the school opened should be in the mix for the final playoff spot, the Chargers are athletic enough to be a force but the key for Coach Maldonado’s squad will be keeping their key playmakers healthy. Don’t count Clear Lake out, the Falcons stumbled to 4-6 after making a drastic offensive system change from the wishbone to the spread. With a second year in the system Clear Lake could be poised for their first playoff trip in six years. Brazoswood and Clear Falls look to be slightly improved but they are still a little bit of a way from being in the playoff mix. Clear Brook has a new coach and a new attitude, the Wolverines will be a team to watch as they could begin to make some headway on being competitive.
