TPI Hot Games of the Week: Houston

Each week check out Texas Prep Insider for our Games of the Week feature highlighting a few of the big match ups in various regions of the state. This week in Houston, there are quite a few games that you will not want to miss.

Thursday, August 27
Hottest of the Hot: Houston Yates vs. Houston B.T. Washington
Can't beat the Booker/Bryant Classic right. This annual game between two historically rival schools is one that has a lot of pride and many times pulls a nice crowd. Last year, Yates' second half surge proved to be the difference for a 24-0 victory. 

Look out for:
Yates – QB Darveon Trahan, RB Reginald Perry
Washington – WR William Waddell, LB Detrane Lindsey

Other hot match ups:
Aldine vs. Clear Lake
Houston Bellaire vs. Alief Taylor

Friday, August 28
Hottest of the Hot: Klein Oak vs. Cy Creek
This game could end up becoming a rivalry, especially after these squads brief history from last season. Saving you the details of all the drama, the Panthers gave Creek its first and last loss of the season. So this one may have a little extra heat coming from the Cougars side of things. We'll see how this opening match up in 2009 turns out.

Look out for: 
Klein Oak – QB Andy Wilson, LB Luke Muncie, WR Tory Waites
Cy Creek – ATH Brent Mitcham, RB Jermichael Selders, LB Sam Sammons

Other hot match ups:
Angleton vs. Dickinson
Lamar Consolidated vs. Texas City
LaMarque vs. Waller
Morton Ranch vs. Tomball

Saturday, August 29
Hottest of the Hot: Katy vs. North Shore
Don't get much hotter than this one. Katy has back-to-back state championship trophies in Class 5A Division II while North Shore is looking to keep its streak of regular season wins alive. The Mustangs are currently at 78 consecutive wins. No surprise that this game has communities and the internet buzzing with excitement. And why not? This is two of the best programs in the state and possibly the country. It will be a wild one and a must-see for you hard-core Texas high school football fans.

Look out for:
Katy – RB Will Jeffery, DB Sam Holl, DE Nick Narcisse
North Shore – RB Tracy Woods, DB Alton Demby, LB Derrick Matthews 

Other hot match ups:
The Woodlands vs. Cy Fair
Eisenhower vs. Hightower
Klein Forest vs. Dallas Carter
