Aledo QB Matthew Bishop RB Jonathan Gray (Texas Commit)        Lake Travis QB Baker Mayfield, DT Jude Jefferies

The battle of the 4A state champs the past two years go at each other again just like they did last year in week 2. The 2011 Matchup is very similar to the situation from last year. Lake Travis was hurt by injuries early last season as several stars missed the game. 2010 starting QB Michael Brewer (now at texas tech) was unable to play in this one along with starting center and a couple of others. Lake Travis hung with Aledo till late in the 4th quarter, until Jonathan Gray on 4th and goal from the 1 yard line scored the game winner. This year the offense is again decimated by injuries
QB Colin Lagasse SMU commit (shoulder) WR Griffin Griffin TCU commit( groin) RB Varshaun Nixon Super Soph(toe) OT Ty Anderson (ankle) dont know which of those guys will play but all ended last week on the sideline. New Lake Travis QB Baker Mayfield has stepped up big time throwing 5 TD’s last week against a tough Hendrickson. Aledo lost their opener against a stout Stephenville team by one point 49-48 (I think) but it was by one point. Then easily beat their next opponent. This years game I expect to be much like last years a defensive battle low scoring. But Aledo the home team is coming in with all hands on deck. Aledo gets my pick in this one

HIGHLIGHTS OF LAST YEARS MATCHUP

TOES PICK
LAKE TRAVIS: 14
ALEDO: 17

HIGH SCHOOL GAME OF THE WEEK
MAGNOLIA WEST MUSTANGS at WILLIS WILDKATS
Fri. Sept. 9th 7pm Willis Wildkat Stadium

Magnolia West Desmond Richards, QB Tyler Anderson        Willis QB Fred Nixon, WR Kevin Markham

Well 1st thing you might ask why would this be considered the game of the week in the Houston Area when you got games like North Shore Klein Oak. Well If you went to game between them last year in the playoffs when these two teams played each other, you would know why. Willis last edged Magnolia West by one point (48-47 I think??) It was quite the game. Magnolia West has started out this season on fire (no pun intended lol) 2-0 with big victories over Oak Ridge and Kingwood Park Magnolia West has Tomball transfer Desmond Richards at running back who through two game is averaging over 10 yards per carry. Magnolia West so far is looking a little more balanced so far this year with QB Tyler Anderson throwin to Neal Tykoya and Tyler Resendez. Willis is also 2-0 with victories over Houston Davis and Navasota. Willis has Fred Nixon at QB a versatile athletic QB with some pretty good weapons Quan West tall 6-4 6-5 receiver and is a Iowa State commit. Kevin Markham putting up some good numbers at the receiver position as well and running backs Autrey Golden and Jerrid Deveraux. This game may not be a go with the Magnolia wildfire situation(if its played) the subvarsity games have been canceled. But I drove by Magnolia West on Wednesday and the team was at the field house so I figure this game is a go, but if it isnt, Both teams have a bye week next week so they might play then. But if these teams do play expect it to be a barnburner (no pun intended lol) but seriously its gonna be a shootout.

TOES PICK:
MAGNOLIA WEST: 44
WILLIS: 38

TOMBALL COUGARS vs KATY MAYDE CREEK RAMS
Sept. 9th 2011 7pm Cougar Stadium

Tomball S Terrence Johnson LB Kyle Harden          Mayde Creek WR/RB Troy McCormick QB Tyler Dickson

I thought the week 0 game Morton Ranch game was embarrassing. This one last week was even worse it was hard to watch. The defense once again played horrible on the edge to be specific the corners and outside linebackers couldn’t hold their edge and force the play back inside. The Jersey Village RB would pop outside then no one on Tomball had the speed or ability to get there and take him down. And when Jersey Village threw the ball to the outside it looked easy lil 10 yard curls and out routes were hardly challenged and then fade routes were hit easily to even in obvious fade situations. When starting corner #5 got hurt you knew they was gonna go right back and go after the backup I said to the person I was sitting next to they throwing the fade on #21 and thats what they did. They should have known better to put that guy on an island by himself. Ya he was right where he needed defensively and got snagged on but. He should be asked to hold anyone by himself. The offense still hasnt shown up no running game what-so-ever. The offensive particularly in the middle cant seem open any holes or keep anyone at bay. The passing game lacks any kind of playmakers outside. The QB is running for his life most the time. They try to move the pocket with some sprint outs and other types of plays but those arent working either. The O Line just hold the line. And when asked to the running backs miss their blocking assignments so they are no help in that department. Tomball has Mayde Creek this week, and They have nearly every starter back from last years team that Tomball defeated last year pretty bad. But this year Mayde Creek has totally changed their offense from a wishbone veir option offense to a spread option offense where they have been throwing the ball a lot more than they did last year, which against Tomball secondary could be easy, I dont know why I’m picking Tomball in this one, maybe its cause I feel Tomball doesnt win this one it may not happen this year. Maybe Morton Ranch and Jersey Village are really good this year dont really know not a lot to judge by, But Im guessing not, Morton Ranch got killed by Cy Falls last week 48-7, and Tomball was Jersy Village’s 1st game. But Hopefully Tomball can have a good showing against Mayde Creek then they will have 2 weeks to get ready for Westfield.

I STILL DONT KNOW WHY TOMBALL DOESNT HAVE ANY COOL VIDEOS LIKE THIS ONE FOR MAYDE CREEK

TOMBALL: 21

COLLEGE GAME OF THE WEEK
ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE at PENN ST. NITTANY LIONS
SAT. SEPT. 10th 2011 3:30pm Georgia Sanford Stadium TV: ESPN

Alabama RB Trent Richardson, Coach Nick Saban Penn State Coach Joe Paterno, WR Derek Moyer

FROM ESPN.COM PREVIEW: The respected head coach couldn’t decide between two players after the preseason-long race for the quarterback job, then played both candidates in a season-opening romp.
Alabama’s Nick Saban and Penn State’s Joe Paterno followed the same script in Week 1. Now they need to start figuring out what the other guy plans to do at quarterback when the third-ranked Crimson Tide visit No. 23 Penn State on Saturday in a marquee matchup between two of college football’s name-brand programs. Not surprisingly, both coaches are playing it coy ahead of the showdown at Beaver Stadium.
At Penn State, Paterno said both sophomore Rob Bolden and junior Matt McGloin will share time again. JoePa’s son and quarterbacks coach, Jay Paterno, said the derby will be evaluated week-to-week, but that the Nittany Lions feel “we’ve got two guys we can win with.” Bolden started the 41-7 win last Saturday over FCS school Indiana State, going 6 of 12 passing for 37 yards. McGloin entered the second quarter, going 6 of 8 passing for 77 yards. They split time in the third quarter, then both Bolden and McGloin headed to the bench for good in the fourth with the game well in hand.
Better get them rested up for the rest of the tough schedule. “Alabama next week is going to be a physical football game. … our conference is physical,” Jay Paterno said. “You better have two guys ready.”
Sounds like what’s going on down in Tuscaloosa. Sophomore AJ McCarron started and was 14 of 23 passing for 226 yards, with two picks and a 24-yard touchdown to Marquis Maze in the 48-7 victory over Kent State. Redshirt freshman Philip Sims was 7 of 14 for 73 yards and also threw two interceptions. Neither player would be yanked for making a mistake, Saban said before the game. Statistically, McCarron appeared to separate himself from Sims — though Saban didn’t name either quarterback his permanent starter afterward. “Right now, we feel confident no matter which quarterback is in,” right guard Barrett Jones said. “It’s not really something that we have to really change anything for. We run the same system with both of them.” Saban didn’t sound that upset about the interceptions, which he hoped would turn into key lessons for his young signal-callers. They could come in handy against a veteran Penn State secondary featuring four senior starters.”AJ having a little more poise, having played a little bit more, probably played with a little more poise today, but we have a lot of confidence in Philip and in most cases he plays extremely well,” Saban said. “I think he learned a lot out there today and I think he will be a very good player for us here.”
Back in Happy Valley, both Bolden and McGloin still have lessons to learn, too. Bolden could have accumulated more yards, though a couple well-placed throws to covered targets bounced off his receivers’ hands each time. Displaying more mobility than McGloin, Bolden also had a tendency to dive head-first for extra yardage outside the pocket. The art of sliding feet-first will come up at position meetings this week. “You want a guy who wants to compete, who wants to try to get the extra yards,” Jay Paterno said. But “you’ve got to know when to hold them and know when to fold them … at any rate, he’ll figure it out. The offense seemed to operate a little smoother under McGloin, especially in a 14-point second quarter. But McGloin also nearly tossed an interception after trying to throw a pass away while under pressure up the middle. Which brings up the other main problem from last Saturday’s otherwise easy season-opening win — the offensive line struggled with pass protection, especially considering the foe was a lower-division school. Left tackle Quinn Barham placed part of the responsibility on the quarterbacks recognizing defensive fronts and stunts. “It was kind of frustrating,” Bolden said about the pass rush, “but we’ll look at the tape and get better so we don’t those problems next week.” Bolden had some problems last September at Alabama in these teams’ first meeting since 1990, completing 13 of 29 passes with two interceptions and no touchdowns in a 24-3 loss. The Crimson Tide beat the Nittany Lions in the 1979 Sugar Bowl to win their 10th national championship, and a rivalry was born for the next decade. The powers met every year from 1981-90, with Alabama winning six times and even handing Penn State its lone loss during its 1982 national championship season.
