With the prolific offenses of the DFW area - most of the stars are put on the offensive side of the ball. We've talked about Alex Lowry and Cody Bauer - two players that made the second team offensive team. Lowry, the Rice commit, is one of the stronger players in the state.
He is spending his time getting ready for powerlifting season - so Rice fans should be excited. Lowry also played some on the defense - but was acknowledged by the coaches on the all-district team as the offensive lineman AND defensive player of the year.
The Guthrie brothers out of Pilot Point are solid football players. Mason could end up as a DII prospect or a walk-on - but he is young and could grow into much more. Jake Williams, the junior out of Godley - could grow into a non-BCS conference recruit. The first team underclassmen will be fun to watch develop over the next two years. Pilot Point and Gunter both participate in 7 on 7 3A and under tournaments, so these kids will get to see how they rank against the area best. The first team offense will have some very good recruiting talent on the team.
