Reasoning

Like we’ve said before, it’s hard to quantify emotion when it comes to how sports teams will preform.

The Woodlands is playing for something more than themselves, they’re playing for Grant Milton, their teammate in an induced coma. They’ve won every game they’ve played since the incident in decisive fashion, so it’s safe to say that the emotion hasn’t gotten the better of them.

This isn’t to say that The Woodlands isn’t good. They are. They have some serious talent at multiple positions, starting with the quarterback position and Eric Schmid. Through injuries and everything else that has come at the Highlanders, Schmid has remained calm, cool and collected, and has orchestrated a great offense.

If we’re talking about talent though, we have to talk about Lake Travis. We have to talk about Charlie Brewer, Cade Brewer, and Maleek Barkley. We have to talk about one of the best offenses of all time that happened to run into the 2015 version of the Katy Tigers last year, and appears to be back for revenge in 2016.

Lake Travis is extremely good, and they’ve caught fire ever since losing to Converse Judson on opening weekend. Cibolo Steele took this team to overtime the next week, but since then no one has come close to the Cavs. They’re a powerhouse in every right, and their clash with The Woodlands will be one for the ages.

If everything was normal emotionally wise, we’d give this one to Lake Travis. However, we can’t count out the extra element that playing for a teammate in a life-altering situation brings. This one is close, very close, and it should be a fantastic game that ends a great week of football.
