TPI 2009 Preseason 5A HOUSTON Rankings

TPI ranks the best 5A teams in Greater Houston. Lot of room for discussion on order of the top 10, but also the teams making the preseason list. Join us the Forum to express your opinions at HOUSTON'S TOP TEAMS IN 2009

When TPI releases a preseason ranking, it is based on team strength and expected playoff strength.

For example, Katy is expected to win its third consecutive state championship in 2009 – a tall order even for Southlake Carroll's best teams – but if Lufkin, Hightower and Katy both go undefeated in regular season play, the question arises of which team is better. That is explained by which teams plays and wins the most postseason contests. It's where you finish at the conclusion of the season that matters.

Your comments are welcome on the TPI Forum.
