Week 5 Class 6A Insider

Denton Guyer (2-1) at Keller (3-0): The District 5-6A opener pits one team who most expected to be in this position (Denton Guyer) and one team who is a surprise. Despite being 2-1, Guyer hasn’t been exactly dominating early on. The Wildcats led by TCU commit QB Shawn Robinson haven’t been able to get their passing game on track and teams are zeroing in on the ground game. Keller’s offense has been outstanding early on as RB Tyler Tutt had a monster game two weeks ago in the Indians win over Rowlett. Texas Tech commit DE Houston Miller and the rest of the Keller defense will have their hands full trying to contain Guyer, Keller’s struggled at times on defense early on and that could be just what Guyer needs to get their offense on track. Stepp’s Pick: Denton Guyer by 9

Garland (3-1, 1-0) vs. Sachse (4-0, 1-0): With the struggles of Rockwall early on this game could potentially decide the District 11-6A title. Aside from a Week 2 stumble against Mesquite, Garland’s off to a great start and that continued last week in the Owls district opener. Garland blasted Naaman Forest 57-10 behind 301 passing yards and six total touchdowns from QB Jacoby Williams. Sachse’s offense was tremendous in last week’s 66-41 win over Tyler Lee, QB Jaylen Mayden had a monster game throwing for 540 yards and six touchdowns along with a seventh score on the ground. WR Devin Duvernay was a big benefactor of Mayden’s big night as he had nine receptions for 222 yards and three touchdowns. Garland’s better on the defensive side of the ball, but they aren’t good enough to consistently slow down the Sachse offensive machine. Stepp’s Pick: Sachse by 11

Katy (4-0, 1-0) vs. Katy Taylor (2-1, 0-0): Just a week after getting their first real test of the year, Katy went back to the norm with a 52-0 blowout win over Katy Mayde Creek to open up district play. The Katy defense led by Collin Wilder and Paddy Fischer has allowed just seven points in four games, while the ground game led by Kyle Porter has been more than capable of holding up their end of the bargain. Katy Taylor lost last week to Beaumont West Brook 21-3, that lack of offense combined with the ridiculous Katy defense is not a good formula. Stepp’s Pick: Katy by 39

Alief Elsik (2-2, 1-1) vs. Fort Bend Kempner (3-1, 1-1): I’m not sure there wasn’t a more surprising result in Greater Houston last week than the usually explosive Elsik offense being shut out by Alief Taylor in a 27-0 loss. RB E.J. Davis did have 125 yards on the ground but the Rams total lack of balance is concerning. They were 0/9 passing in this loss. They’ll try and get things going this week against surprising Kempner who dropped their first game of the year in a shootout to Ft Bend Travis 48-32. Kempner’s getting Elsik at a bad time, the Rams will be foaming at the mouth to get on the field and erase the bad taste in their mouth after last week’s dismal performance. Stepp’s Pick: Alief Elsik by 21

Converse Judson (4-0) vs. Schertz Clemens (4-0): It’s a classic offense vs. defense matchup as defensive powerhouse Judson led by DE Alton Robinson looks to contain the explosive Clemens offense led by QB Frank Harris. In four games Judson has allowed just 37 points and it last week’s 31-7 win over Brennan it appears the Rockets offense finally saw some life. Isaiah Gibson took the snaps under center last week and the Rockets offense was crisp as Gibson threw for 168 yards and two scores. Clemens needed all of their offensive juice last week to sneak by Copperas Cove 67-66 in overtime. QB Harris had a monster game for the Buffs accounting for 378 yards of total offense and five touchdowns. CHS has one of the top offensive units in the state, but allowing 66 points to a winless Copperas Cove team doesn’t inspire confidence against a team the caliber of Judson. Stepp’s Pick: Converse Judson by 6
