Lots of great games are in the Houston area for Week 0. Scout.com will be all over the state of Texas providing coverage. Here is where you can find us in the Greater Houston area.

Thursday, August 25
Memorial vs. Stratford, Tully Stadium
This is one of the few true neighborhood rivalries that remain in the city. Memorial is coming off an awesome year going deep into the playoffs while Stratford made it to the post season as well.

Quick Thoughts…
How will Stratford fare with a new quarterback taking the snaps?
Will Memorial's running game continue to be as solid as it has been in years past?

Players to Watch:
Memorial
RB Justin White "Boomer" (TCU, baseball)
LB Mason Stewart

Stratford
QB Jeremiah Briscoe
DB A.J. Justice (SMU)
DB Kelvin Rainey

Rosenberg Terry vs. La Marque
In Class 4A football, there are not many match ups that can rival this one. Two great squads and two great coaches face off this early in the year. 

Quick Thoughts…
With two awesome offenses taking the field, will this game turn into a high-scoring affair?
In his first game as the new coach at La Marque, how Dr. Mike Jackson will the Cougars look in their debut?

Players to Watch
Terry
QB Antoine Arbuleda 
LB Taruis Bishop
DB Victor Davis
WR Derrick Griffin
TE Billy White
RB Eugene Wright

La Marque
WR Bryan Allen
QB Emmanuel Williams
RB Timothy Wright

Saturday, August 27
Klein Collins vs. Richmond Travis
This is a nice matchup between two teams that won its district title last year and are poised to do it again. 

Quick Thoughts…
Which defense will step up in this game as both are pretty solid?
Is it interesting that both of these teams have 6-foot-6 quarterbacks? 

Players to Watch
Klein Collins
RB Shane Rhodes (Boise State)
DB Ryan Santos
QB Tyler Stehling (Rice)

Travis
QB Kyle Coulter
LB Michael Rose
