Every week day, the staff writers of TexasHSFootball.com are picking who they think will win each district.

20-6A will be a week-by- week primetime showdown with several of the teams in the district more than capable of making the playoffs in 2017.

Of course there is last year’s district champ in Ridge Point that steamrolled most of the competition to 11-straight wins before losing to Lamar in the second round of the playoffs.

Fort Bend Travis made a strong effort in trying to claim the title but came up a bit short after dropping a game to Fort Bend Hightower and giving Ridge Point their most competitive game last year.

Then you have Bush, Kempner and Hightower lingering and waiting to capitalize on the first mistake any district opponent makes. So 20-6A will definitely provide the anticipation of finding out what the final score was throughout the district every Friday night but if I’m going to hitch a ride with one of these teams, I’m picking Travis.

Travis returns their First-Team All-District quarterback Amryn Jeffrey that led the district in passing with 3,608 yards and 33 touchdowns. They also have one of the most elite talents in the state returning at wide receiver in Arjei Henderson and they also get back their 1,000-yard rusher in Naveon Mitchell. They also return Jake Lynch (LB), Braxton White (DE) and Zach Zimos (DB) on defense to help round out one of the better two-way teams in the state. Fort Bend Travis all the way.

Prediction: Fort Bend Travis

This district flies a little bit under the radar but it could certainly be one of the most competitive. Fort Bend Ridge Point has arguably the most talent, but Bush and Hightower have multiple key starters returning as does Fort Bend Travis.

I’m going to give a slight edge to Ridge Point for their talent and the versatility they have on offense. That said don’t be surprised if Travis’ offensive weapons (QB Amryn Jeffrey and WR Arjei Henderson) present a major challenge.

As much as I’d like to believe what should be improved squads from Bush, Kempner and Travis have a chance to truly compete for the district title in 2017, it’s difficult to believe Ridge Point isn’t poised to run through its schedule once again.

The Panthers return the district Coach of the Year in Brett Sniffin and plenty of high-level talent from last year’s 11-win team, including elite tight end Mustapha Muhammad, linebacker Chad Bailey, quarterback Aaron Allen and running back Mason McBride. Ridge point is simply stacked and now adds the edge of further experience, which is good news for the Panthers, but bad news for the rest of District 20-6A.

Prediction: Fort Bend Ridge Point

Hunter Cooke

Ridge Point isn’t going to be a tough out, nor will most of the teams in this district, but my pick is going to Amryn Jeffrey and Fort Bend Travis.

They won’t be a massively popular pick, but they return some serious firepower, and they have the most exciting player in the district in Jeffrey. Other teams may have some flash and some big recruits, but I believe that Travis can go on the road and beat Ridge Point.

Prediction: Fort Bend Travis
