Roger Smith is the play-by-play voice of Fort Bend ISD high school games on vypefortbend.com. Listen throughout the school year for multiple games every week during the school year, featuring all 11 FBISD schools: Austin, Bush, Clements, Dulles, Elkins, Hightower, Kempner, Marshall, Ridge Point, Travis and Willowridge.
Marshall and Willowridge are still together in district play for the 2020 football season, but they won't see Manvel anymore. Kempner moves down from class 6A to class 5A, and they'll be in the same district - but they might not even play each other.
Hear from Marshall's James Williams, as he talks about life for the Buffs after Devon Achane, Malik Hornsby and a marvelous cast of players graduated. He's even got a star QB (a transfer, just like Hornsby) to run the offense. Meet Willowridge's new sideline boss, Ramon Chin-Young, who takes over for retired head coach Richard Lazarou.
Welcome to the 2020 football season. What a weird offseason it was for everyone. There was not a summer camp circuit for players to go showcase their talents at. In-person recruiting came to a screeching halt and the COVID-19 Pandemic has affected everyone.
