Thursday, September 10
Hottest of the Hot: Fort Bend – Hightower vs. Kempner
Zone (district) play begins in Houston's largest 5A district in Fort Bend. Here lies a battle between two teams that were favored to run the table in the district. Both have played one game each, Hightower shut out Eisenhower while Kempner fell to Pearland in the final minute. Kempner's ground game against the Hurricane defense should make for a nice game. 

Key Players:
Hightower: LB Shaun Lewis, DB Harvey Jackson
Kempner: RB Josh Bell, QB John Shalala, WR Kenneth Bibbins

Other hot match ups: 
Pearland Dawson vs. Pasadena Dobie
Klein vs. Kingwood
Fort Bend – Dulles vs. Willowridge

Friday, September 11
Hottest of the Hot: Houston Lamar vs. Brenham
Though two different classes, here are two of the best the city has to offer as far as being top of the class. District 20-5A power Lamar and top 4A contender Brenham. Both teams are 2-0 and neither have had an opponent within a couple of touchdowns. Brenham proved in week 0 that class does not matter after handling Mayde Creek. A win here will make a statement for whatever team comes out on top. 

Key Players: 
Lamar: QB Bram Kohlhausen, RB Patrick Andrews, DB Drew Bostick
Brenham: QB Ty Schlottmann, WR Terrell Reese, ATH Troy Green
More Hot: Aldine vs. Klein Forest
Speed, speed and more speed. That's what you will find when these North Houston teams collide. Both teams are undefeated and have beat some worthy opponents. Most notable: Aldine beating Clear Lake by a couple touchdowns and Klein Forest dropping at least 50 points in both of its dominant wins. If you find yourself out on the North side, Klein Memorial Stadium is the place to be.

Key players:
Aldine: RB Dontae Williams, RB Wesley Vincent, WR George Moore
Klein Forest: QB Matt Davis, RB Cory Idlebird, ATH Damien Payne
