Well, if you like scoring, wild stats and crazy games Week 8 was just for you.
The biggest game ended up being a wild 73-70 victory for Tomball Memorial over Cy Lakes in what turned into a Saturday afternoon slugfest. Not one time this season have we selected two Gridiron Players of the Week from the same game.
But this was a special occasion.
Colton Marwill – Tomball Memorial
Start with the victor in the mega-showdown. Marwill finished 23 of 33 for 414 yards and seven touchdowns; 11 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown. Marwill helped power the Wildcats to the win in the end.
The Woodlands Christian Academy fell just short of bringing home a state title a year ago. A loss in overtime ended up being the difference.
Coming off that, the Warriors have worked hard this offseason to get right back to the championship game and this time bring home the title. One of the key returners is senior Bakari LaStrap.
LaStrap, a TAPPS 4A first-team, all-state selection, averaged 14 points, six rebounds and five assists per game last year.
VYPE caught up with LaStrap at The Woodlands Christian Academy's VYPE Winter Media Day.
