Next year’s favorites

Here is my take on region 3 5A boys pre-season top 10. This is based off what I know about the schools in Region 3 and their players.
1. Elsik– Brings back a talented bunch that have the ability to make a deep run, BUT cant seem to win the big games when they count.
2. Pasadena Dobie– This team has a had a good run the last few years, this seems to be the culminating season of that group of kids, will be strong up front and have a great work ethic. BUT they will struggle defensively and this may be their downfall.
3. Strake Jesuit- Never count out the Crusaders, always a program with talent and the ability to win the region BUT this group does not seem to be quite as solid as years past.
4. Westside– Bring back a number of players from last year, and always seem to find a few new stars. Look for them to be a major contender.
5. Pearland– ” My Dark Horse Prediction” very young team that is loaded all over the field with premier league club players. Don’t under estimate this team as they have the talent to make a run at the region.
6. Langham Creek– Had a strong showing early last year but fell off late in the year, look to build on that success with key players back this year.
7. Katy Seven Lakes– This team has the talent, but have been very up and down the last few years, if they can put it all together they can make a deep run.
8. Ft. Bend Clements– Young team from last year took one on the chin against South Houston in the playoffs, look to rebound this year with another strong showing… BUT their district does not help them get better as the year goes on.
9. Deer Park– Had two year showing at the regional tournament with a great group of kids, BUT graduated a lot of key players. Still has a core that will keep them moving forward and possibly make a run.
10. Cy Ridge– Great year last year, and should continue on that path, but I do not see them being quite as strong as they ended the year last season.

Other notables:

Pasadena– Good solid team that has potential to make some noise.
Mortan Ranch– new coach and lots lost to graduation but never count them out.
North Shore– always a threat to make a run, but not as strong as years past.
