DISTRICT OUTLOOK:

It may sound odd, but the Steele Knights may have impressed more in their two losses a year ago than in any of their 13 wins. Steele’s two blemishes in 2014 were closes losses to powerhouses DeSoto and Katy (overtime) in what amounted to a road game at NRG Stadium. The few doubters of the Knights ability were put to rest and now Steele has their sights set on a title run and why not? A potential state semi-final matchup for the Knights would likely be in San Antonio. Judson, like Steele made a run to the State Semi-Finals and the Rockets have designs on more in 2015 as they were an extremely young team a year ago. The biggest key for Judson will be their ability to stop the run, when Judson struggled it was typically against teams who lined up and mashed the Rockets. After the top two in the district things drop off, but tradition rich Smithson Valley has a strong grip on the third spot. The Rangers were pretty young last year and played eventual quarter-finalist Reagan tough before falling by seven. They are more than capable of sneaking up on one of the top two teams if things break right. The battle for fourth should be intriguing as Clemens and Canyon both look to be improved, we give a slight nod to Clemens based on the past few years being a tad more consistent. New Branunels and Wagner still have a long way to go to move into competing in a tough San Antonio area loop.
