The TWCA Warriors are a playoff lock in TAPPS for 2019
The Woodlands Christian Academy has high hopes this fall with eight starters on both sides of the ball returning off of last year's 8-4 campaign.
They Warriors reached the second-round appearance in the playoffs. Caden Queck will not return at the quarterback position after passing for 1,230 yards and 15 scores a year ago. The QB will be Aaron Monsivaiz, who had 82 tackles and five sacks a year ago at linebacker. The real show on offense is Dane Jackson. The junior rushed for 1,622 yards and 23 scores last year, earning him second-team, all-State honors. Jackson broke the 100-yard mark in eight games, with his season-high being 226 yards against Grand Oaks.
On the offensive and defensive side of the ball, Caleb Chappelle is a match-up problem. Offensively, Chappelle had 34 grabs for 537 yards and seven scores. Defensively, the senior pulled down 10 interceptions, and was also a threat in the kick return game with more than 700 yards.
OL/DL Blake Leslie is out with a knee injury and WR Caedmon Parker will provide some explosion. The lines will be bolstered by Ethan Hummel, Nick Bryngelson, Jason Ellis and Joseph Bouis. Other skill players include Colt Glover, Hunter Ellis and Forrest Winton.
The coaching staff expects even better play from its returning players and sees more unity up and down the roster. This could be the breakout year third-year head coach Randy Hollas expects.
