Things are heating up across the state as we enter the third week of the 2017 Texas high school football season and we have a good one for our TexasHSFootball.com Game of The Week. This week, we head east The Woodlands travels to Katy for a game of Houston area powers on Saturday night.
Both teams had a delayed start to the season as Southeast Texas and the Gulf Coast continue to recover from Hurricane Harvey. As a result, this will be the first game for both teams on the season.
The Woodlands enters the 2017 season with high expectations but also with the knowledge of replacing several top starters. Wide receiver KeSean Carter is back and should be a go-to playmaker on offense for the Highlanders. On defense, head coach Mark Schmid will replace seven starters and he’ll be looking for someone to step up on that side of the ball.
On the other sideline, the Katy Tigers will look to get back to a state title in 2017 by relying on junior running back Deondrick Glass. The junior emerged as the main playmaker for the Tigers and he and senior Josh Oglesby will be a powerful backfield duo for head coach Gary Joseph. Defensive end Michael Matus will lead a unit that is traditionally strong as they’ll look to slow down the high-powered Highlander offense.
The game will also be part of the debut of the new $72 million Legacy Stadium at Katy ISD, which would lend itself to an electric atmosphere. The game kicks off at 6 p.m. Central Time on Saturday.
