Every year, new athletes emerge.
That's the natural process in high school sports. This year is no different.
Sophomore RB Jaydon Blue of Klein Cain was not a name on the radar coming into the season. Now he's pulling DI offers and leading the Hurricanes to school history.
Last season, Cy Lakes QB Sofian Massoud was playing in the Bronx, New York. Fast forward to now and he's lead the Spartans to new heights throwing the ball.
For years, Conroe has been a bump in the road for their District 15-6A foes. Not any longer. QB Christian Pack is the top dual-threat QB and Michael Phoenix is the city's top WR.
Check out this week's updated stats.

Having an ear to the ground as it relates to Houston football recruiting, you hear things early.
"Have you heard about this kid dominating the Klein Little Leagues?" which turns in to "You have to see this kid… in the seventh grade."
I've heard it for nearly two decades working for Rivals.com and finding VYPE a decade ago. Street legends of kids dominating the pre-varsity landscape. Most fizzle out, but the name Jaydon Blue continues to trend.
The 5-foot-11, 190-pound sophomore RB has all the tools to be an elite recruit under the direction of coach James Clancy at Klein Cain.
New school Klein Cain is in its embryotic stages, but coach Clancy has a sophomore class that is loaded that includes Blue, WR Matthew Golden, QB Carson Roper and DT Lukia Rawls. Golden is a can't-miss DI inside WR, who will start receiving offers in before the end of the season. Roper is going to grow into the position and has huge upside, while Rawls is a run-stopping tackle.
"Blue is special and he's going to play football as long as he wants to," Clancy said. "What he did on the freshman football field last year was just stupid."
