Jasper vs Silsbee-

First high school game I ever attended. Kirby Stadium. "Stop, look, and listen here come the mighty Tigers". My mom was a Silsbee grad and my grandparents lived in Silsbee and worked for the lumber mill. Great atmosphere between the sugar cane (or whatever that was that was around Kirby Stadium). I was only 7 years old.

Baytown Lee vs Baytown Sterling: The Game-

Back in the 70's and early 80's this was clearly one of the greatest high school rivalry games in the state. Easily 10K to 12K in attendance. Even now, it will be the highest attended game for both schools.  

(Sorry. Could not think of 3 others.)

"The Game" between Baytown Sterling and Baytown Lee. May not be what it once was but I'd like to see how many other high school rivalries draw 13k. Also the loser of that game traditionally falls apart the rest of the season over the loss. 

I also like the trio of BH/Crosby/Dayton.

Deer Park and La Porte is also awesome. 

Side note. Talking to the kids, Baytown Sterling vs. Goose Creek Memorial is gaining traction quickly. GCM kids wanted to do workouts at 5 a.m. when they heard Sterling worked at 5:30. It will only get more intense now that both are 6A.

1. Plano vs Odessa Permian - Plano found a way to win every time. 4-0 in the Semifinals against Mojo.  No other team can compare.

2. La Marque vs Calallen - Poor Calallen... lost in the Semis to LM six times  but almost every game was a great one.

3. WOS vs Jasper - #1 vs #2 one year, Quarterfinalists another year, always a good show

4. Katy vs The Woodlands - The Woodlands had Katy's number and won early on in the season several times but couldn't keep it going

5. PNG vs Ned - always a classic

1987 WOS 3 Jasper 0

For a 3-0 game was one of the greatest games I ever saw. I still break out the old VHS tape and watch this one from time to time.

    • Yes you are right they did qualify for 7 on 7 sate tournament, Texan live has a free event posted today outlining all the teams.
    • Anahuac will be much better than some of those listed in the top 25. It will not take long for them to be ranked. 
    • Slightly more black than white in Section 8.    This is the hidden content, please Sign In or Sign Up But that’s completely understandable based on the percentage of single parent households  in those respective communities. 
    • How does the doorman’s decision make Trump a racist?
    • But this is the type of thing I’m talking about. Are black people to stupid to get a photo ID? That’s what liberals would have us believe. Requiring everybody to provide a photo ID when voting is discrimination towards blacks? Gimme a break.    It’s a proven fact that black people commit the majority of violent crimes in America, despite making up only 13 percent of the population. But racism is the reason that there are more black people in jail for committing violent crimes? Duh.    The majority of individual wealth is comprised of our homes… but it’s exceptionally hard for single moms of any race to achieve home ownership. When 75% of AA kids are born to single moms, it’s not surprising that more black kids grow up in rent houses and apartments.    I know a young man that dropped out of high school, got arrested a couple times, has three baby mama’s did some actual time, likes to smoke a lot of weed, has neck tattoos and can’t speak the King’s English. You’d say “well, that’s institutional racism, the legacy of our original sin of slavery, and the effects of growing up in poverty.” I’d say, “hold up… you’re completely wrong-this kid is white and he’s just an eff-up.”  But you give no possibility to the idea that a lot of problems are self-inflicted, not the ol’ racist boogey man.    And there wasn’t a current racist policy in that article. There was a lot of conjecture on the part of the author, trying to pin outcomes on racism, without a single shred of evidence, other than the outcomes.    Racist laws and policies against minorities have been illegal since 1964. You can’t point out a single policy that’s discriminatory to minorities in 2024. Racism is imagined at this point.
