This is the toughest district in the state of Texas. No argument. Back-to-back State Champion North Shore and perennial playoff powers Atascocita and Beaumont West Brook come together to form a mega-district. The final playoff spot will be a battle between Humble, Summer Creek, C.E. King and Kingwood. So, who comes out on top in 2020?
The West Brook Bruins are not far removed from playing for a state championship (2018) and return six starters and 28 lettermen off last year's area-round team.
<p>The Bruins return <a data-linked-post="2647640187" href="https://www.vype.com/Texas/Houston/vype-football-2020-preview-district-21-6a" target="_blank">District 21-6A</a> Newcomer of the Year <a data-linked-post="2645628148" href="https://www.vype.com/vype-setx-recruiting---bryce-anderson-west-brook-football" target="_blank">Bryce Anderson</a> (LSU), who played both ways last year but will solely play quarterback in 2020. Other key returners on that side of the ball include running back tandem Jordan Guidry (467 yards, 8 TDs) and Jamichael Foxall (617 yards, 7 TDs), who were both second-teamers a year ago. The receiving corps will be led by Joe Hayes, Montavian Jones and Andre Dennis. On the line, Cam Handy will be a player to keep an eye on as he earned second-team honors a year ago and also watch for Tyler Tucker at tight end as well as Ben Bennett. </p><p>Defensively, Gabe Silva, Caleb David, Reggie Holmes and Jayden Davis will anchor that group. There will be some juniors coming up from an 8-1-1 JV team from a year ago, which will fill the holes. </p><p><br/></p><p><em><strong><a href="https://vypemedia.zenfolio.com/p207970692?utm_medium=photographer_referral_link&utm_source=zenfolio_email_system&utm_campaign=gallery&utm_content=SETX%20Football%202020" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">CLICK HERE</a> to purchase photos from the VYPE SETX Football Photoshoot</strong></em></p><p><em><strong><em>Due to COVID-19 this year, the VYPE Houston Football Preview Magazine will be LIMITED for pickup at area retailers due tot COVID-19 restrictions.

Week 5, or Week 1? I'm not sure how to classify this week. I've personally watched four weeks worth of football, but this is the first game of a 10-game season for the 5A and 6A boys. Getting to this point has been antsy. We've seen a number of prolific games canceled for this week - some teams dealing with multiple cancellations - and the chances of actually making it to state for all levels seems to be 50/50 at best, right now.
Either way, here we are. Schools in 4A and below are still rolling through, and 6A, 5A and TAPPS finally get to hit other teams.
#7 Frisco vs. Frisco Independence<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDQzNjQ4Mi9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTYzNDUwODI4Nn0.5lHG7X4MY_5Qpp1O1WEYJSo7tVhtrZkfY2LstiZdM8A/img.png?width=980" id="e3d84" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="adf0c0d6841a2c385dc3e864ca462f0d" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p><strong>TIME: </strong>7 p.m.<br><strong>DATE: </strong>September 24, 2020<br><strong>LOCATION:</strong> Toyota Stadium (Frisco)<br><strong>LINE:</strong> Frisco by 4</p><p>It is quite an start contrast between these two as one (Frisco) is all about the ground-and-pound attack while the other (Independence) likes to air it out. Last year, Frisco ran for more than 3,000 yards as a team but it graduated more than 70 percent of that production from a year ago. Independence likes to spread the field out and put it in the hands of dual-threat senior quarterback Braylon Braxton, who racked up more than 3,200 yards passing, 850 yards rushing and 56 total TDs.</p><p>Both teams return a lot of starters from teams that won 10-plus games and made it to the regional semifinals last year.</p><p><strong>PREDICTION:</strong> Frisco Independence 38, Frisco 34</p>
#17 Rockwall vs. Denton Braswell<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDQzNjUxNC9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY2MzEzNzQwOH0.H3nbsVVS_pfHn7I5zdGnwy8JQXauR--Y6l-fmcWa18E/img.png?width=980" id="b04a0" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="f33aaf8381bf87058f01dbf42603b988" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p><strong>TIME: </strong>7 p.m.<br><strong>DATE: </strong>September 25, 2020<br><strong>LOCATION:</strong> Collins Athletic Complex (Denton)<br><strong>LINE:</strong> Rockwall by 17</p><p>There's a big question for each team entering the 2020 season. For Rockwall: How will the offense and Braedyn Locke fair not having an all-world receiver to throw to along with its three other top receivers? For Braswell: How will it adjust to life in 6A and playing in a loaded district?</p><p>We find out those answers in the opening week as Rockwall has a new coach but is still guided by Locke, who passed for 4,200 yards last year. In a game against Longview, Locke looked pedestrian as Jaxon Smith-Njigba had to leave early with an injury. Braswell has a new starter at quarterback, replacing some big shoes left by Grayson Thompson. </p><p>PREDICTION: Rockwall 40, Denton Braswell 28<br></p>
Fort Worth Wyatt vs. Arlington Seguin<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDQzNjUyOC9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY1NTQzMDg2M30._3XGfogMirS_eVQWK0WGJ2byv08Havx_W5YKdPsh6uI/img.png?width=980" id="bd1b4" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="a84fd01b1dd389c5215cb193e5e733b1" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p><strong>TIME: 11</strong> a.m.<br><strong>DATE: </strong>September 26, 2020<br><strong>LOCATION:</strong> Globe Life Park (Arlington)<br><strong>LINE:</strong> Seguin by 4</p><p>Both teams return a lot of starters from a year ago, which could help spark vast improvements from a year ago. Wyatt made the playoffs last year despite finishing with a 3-8 record. Seguin, on the other hand, mustered just one win. Neither team is projected to make the playoffs, according to TexasFootball.com, so this sesaon-opening matchup will tell a lot about where each team is to start the season and how the rest of the year could shape out. </p><strong>PREDICTION:</strong> Arlington Seguin 27, Fort Worth Wyatt 21
Weatherford vs. #2 Aledo<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDQzNjU1NS9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0MjMyOTQ2NX0.BxjqiOTbfQza7MXOSCli87iHkHqMgqoSFkOo4Xcxi50/img.png?width=980" id="0366b" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="306ee479f48c39e45e00c28eb5ed98b9" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p><strong>TIME: 3:30 p.</strong>m.<br><strong>DATE: </strong>September 26, 2020<br><strong>LOCATION:</strong> Globe Life Park (Arlington)<br><strong>LINE:</strong> Aledo by 18</p><p>Another year, another possible state title appearance for Aledo. That's the running consensus as it brings back 10 starters from last year's championship team, including 4-star, LSU-commit JoJo Earle. TexasFootball.com notes that Aledo will be strongest at defense this year while Weatherford will need to find answers at quarterback, losing Ken Seals to graduation. After a hot start to the year last year, Weatherford sort of faded in district play and limped into the playoffs. Aledo? Not so much. It rolled through the regular season, district and playoffs to another state crown.</p><strong>PREDICTION:</strong> Aledo 48, Weatherford 35
Colleyville Heritage vs. Grapevine<img lazy-loadable="true" src="https://assets.rebelmouse.io/eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJpbWFnZSI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXNzZXRzLnJibC5tcy8yNDQzNjU3Ny9vcmlnaW4ucG5nIiwiZXhwaXJlc19hdCI6MTY0NzU0NzA1M30.GSX6MP-ElKEMdqmMEGnrD8GhSCU8-GVTeNaUc7odFkI/img.png?width=980" id="5f976" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="0101efb3605f6932bb0860386b90b857" data-rm-shortcode-name="rebelmouse-image" /><p><strong>TIME: 8:00 p.</strong>m.<br><strong>DATE: </strong>September 26, 2020<br><strong>LOCATION:</strong> Globe Life Park (Arlington)<br><strong>LINE:</strong> Grapevine by 8</p><p>Last year Colleyville Heritage ran right over Grapevine in their annual rivalry game. The 2020 version should be quite different as both teams lose quite a bit of starters from a year ago but have notable pieces back to help transition. Heritage were regional finalist a year ago while Grapevine was knocked out in the first round. This game always has some big plays and the hits seems to be a bit louder, and look for Grapevine to rebound from last year's poor outing. </p><strong>PREDICTION:</strong> Grapevine 27, Colleyville Heritage 23
