Every weekday until the beginning of the season, the TexasHSFootball.com staff writers will be picking the teams they think will win each district

Klein Collins ended up coming out on top of this district in 2016 and had their best season in program history, advancing all the way to the state semifinals. Heading into 2017, they have to replace a lot of talent on the special group on both sides of the football.

The biggest challenge could come from a number of teams, including Klein who bring back a number of key all-district performers including Newcomer of the Year in D’Anthony Sims. Stratford and Klein Oak will present their own challenges but I think the running combination of Isaiah Spiller and Joshua Powell will help carry the Tigers to a successful defense of their district title.

Prediction: Klein Collins

Klein Collins has won back-to-back district titles and I expect them to produce a similar result in 2017. Even with 18 starters gone from last year’s team that went 13-2 and almost stopped DeSoto’s title run, Klein Collins has the next group of players ready to carry the banner.

The coaching staff has been shuffled slightly with former offensive coordinator Adrian Mitchell sharing responsibility on defense as the co-DC with former linebackers coach Steve Powers and also the hiring of Todd Rankin as the new offensive coordinator, but it does not look to be much of an obstacle with the in-house replacements smoothing the transition.

Klein Collins has a formidable running attack with Isaiah Spiller and Josh Powell returning and should be in good hands with their upcoming players from their junior varsity and freshmen teams so I don’t think Klein Collins misses a beat this upcoming season.

District 15-6A should be an interesting one to follow in 2017, yet again. In 2016, Klein Collins ripped through their conference schedule unblemished en route to a 13-2 record to end the season. The byproduct of such a talented bunch is losing much – 44 seniors from a 77-man roster – and meanwhile, Klein and Klein Oak look poised to build upon their previous efforts by returning plenty.

Klein will return it’s starting quarterback and leading rusher and wide receiver in Malcolm Deary and Austin Trammell, respectively. I think Klein Oak returns a bit more, though, such as upwards of 3,000 yards of offense and key pieces from a stout defense, and that should be the small difference in two teams that went 5-2 in district last season.

Prediction: Klein Oak

Hunter Cooke

I don’t see much reason why any final win total should change in this district. I think Klein Collins loses a ton of very underrated players who will be very tough to replace, but at the same time, I don’t think anyone can really contend with what they bring back either.

Klein Collins was one of the most underrated teams in the state last year. I don’t expect that to change too much.

Prediction: Klein Collins
