Rev your engines ladies and gentlemen! The 2021-22 high school football season has arrived and the matchups are thrilling, to say the least.  ESPN U kicks off H-Town play covering Bridgeland and Klein Cain for national audiences this opening weekend. Then, October forecasts to be something memorable with defending champion Katy playing against Katy Tompkins, the only team Katy lost to last season by a score of 24-19. 

North Shore and Fort Bend Marshall look to be in tip-top form going into the season and are primed to make strong cases nationally going into the season stacked with next level talent across the board.

In HISD, the rivalry and street classics games should be pretty Gucci this season. I am curious to see what Yates’ offensive attack will look like under new head coach Troy Degar.  IDK emoji.
