Occasionally, you'll come across a storyline for the ages. A Cinderella story, a comeback win in the final minutes of a game, one final push for security of the playoffs. Fortunately, in the world of Texas high school football, these stories are an ever-developing landscape. This particular stand-alone, however, is a unique one. It has all of these elements and more.
On November 6th, district rivals Grapevine Faith and Fort Worth Christian squared up underneath the bright Friday night lights. Fort Worth Christian celebrating a senior night and fighting hopes to extend towards postseason play with a shortened schedule. Grapevine Faith looking to secure a home field playoff game with another district win. One for the books?
This past weekend, VYPE Hoops hosted its second high school basketball preseason showcase at the Texas Tornados facility. This time it was the boys' turn to hoop it up.

College Park,Stratford,Cy Ranch, Barbers Hill, Galena Park, Salt & Light, Cy Falls and Cy Park all went 2-0 in the showcase event. Some power programs were also involved such as 2020 state finalist Stafford, perennial power Katy Tompkins and Morton Ranch were also in attendance.
"I love our preseason events; it provides VYPE a sneak-peek to the upcoming basketball season," VYPE Chief Strategy Officer Derek Dusek said. "The competition was fantastic on Saturday. We deeply appreciate the support we receive from Houston-area schools. The coaches value our format; it allows them to work out a few kinks before practice starts this week. And a quick shout-out to the staff at Texas Tornados…they were great helping keep a clean/safe environment for athletes, coaches, fans and staff."
