After a very abbreviated 2020 schedule, the 2021 season is just underway with pretty much every team in the area getting started over the weekend - some already with a handful of games under their belts.
The mostly lost season a year ago has baseball coaches, players and fans/parents antsy to make sure the entire year plays out, culminating with crowning state champions across all classifications and organizations.
What we'll do instead is highlight a team we think has a high chance to win state, a team that could be dark horse in that class as well as a preseason player to watch in each class.
HOUSTON - Every athlete has one of those games where everything seems to go right.
Jorynn Ross knows that feeling.
In a 77-30 victory over St. Stephen's Episcopal on January 15, Ross did something that no John Cooper School women's basketball player has ever accomplished - joined the 20-20 club, finishing with 20 points and 20 rebounds in the victory.
"The game for me was great," Ross, who listens to "Female Goat" by Lakeyah ft. City Girls before every game said. "I love away games because of the energy that you have to bring and because you have to work hard to prove yourself in a hostile environment."
