Editor’s note: We will not be doing rankings this week, as we feel like rankings are useless once the playoffs start. Our four full-time writers will be picking the closest matchups in each region from each division in each classification. Here are our picks for 6A Division 2.
Cedar Hill – III
Denton Guyer – I
Advantage: Cedar Hill, 3 votes to 1
Reasoning: Did you see Avery Davis last week? He put on a clinic, carving up a very good Waco Midway team. Denton Guyer is good, but Cedar Hill seems to be peaking at the perfect time.
RR Cedar Ridge – II
Klein Collins– II
Reasoning: Klein Collins has a powerful offense, but Cedar Ridge has a dominant defense. This will be the best unit either team has faced so far.
La Porte – II
Friendswood – II
Reasoning: These two teams have similar results against the same teams. Friendswood has the offense, but will it be enough to beat a La Porte team that’s at least solid in all aspects of the game?
Laredo United East – I
San Benito – III
Advantage: San Benito, 3 votes to 1
Reasoning: Laredo United East has a great story, but San Benito is built to beat teams like them.
