District 18-5A: Week 4 Predictions

TexasPrepInsider.com has returned for the 2008 football season and we are bringing back our weekly predictions of you favorite teams. Check out who we feel will come away with a win this week. And best of all, you can enjoy this content for free.

Houston Memorial vs. Houston Strake Jesuit 
Strake Jesuit, led by quarterback James Scott, will face one of the city's toughest defenses in Memorial. Scott has been productive offensively and he will need to continue that trend this week for the Crusaders to get a win. For Memorial, Daniel Neumann and Nolan Miller are the primary players and Michael Ratterree is fierce on the defensive end. I see this game being a close, but defense usually makes all the difference.

Alief Taylor vs. Houston Stratford
Stratford has been know for being competitive, but this week the Spartans are facing a team that averages 28 points and 350 yards a game. Of course, this will be the toughest team Taylor has faced, but I still see them with a slight advantage this early in the season. Lion quarterback Rodney Owens has proved that he can manage the offense well and has the numbers to back it up. For Stratford, look for Rodney Anderson to have a solid game as well.

Houston Northbrook vs. Houston Spring Woods
If there is one thing that is for certain, a lot of ground-game action is likely. Both teams are traditionally run-oriented, but so far Spring Woods has been sort of balanced. The Tigers will be looking for their first win while Northbrook is looking for a 2-0 start. Look for Raider running back Derrick Rainey to put his team on his back and carry them to victory

Alief Elsik vs. Alief Hastings
District play is on the horizon and Elsik in Hastings usually ends up being a great game. And even though it still may be, Hastings has the advantage in this one. Quarterback Alvin Mitchell leads the way by air and ground. In Elsik's first game, it resulted in a loss to Nimitz and the Rams have some trouble moving the ball on offense.
