As the old saying goes ... Defense Wins Championships.
Having a solid defense paired with an unstoppable offense can be the recipe for a state title. Look at North Shore and Shadow Creek for instance. In their title games there were crucial moments - a 4th and goal from the three for Duncanville and a Hail Mary by Denton Ryan - were the defenses stood tall.
So, who were the best defensive players in Houston in 2019?
To the victor go the spoils.
After a season that saw North Shore win its second-straight championship, Shadow Creek win its first-ever title and Fort Bend Marshall return to another state final appearance, it's no surprise who were named to the All-VYPE teams.
We first look at the offense, who carried the flag for the city.
The citywide MVP is a no-brainer as North Shore's Dematrius Davis stole all of the headlines. FB Marshall's Devon Achane was a scoring-machine and had an amazing career for the Buffs.
