  Stephenville vs. Monterrey Tech   This has got to be my favorite time of year as a new season of football is upon us. Optimism abounds in the great state of Texas as everyone sits at 0-0 with grand visions of gridiron success. The anticipation of success doesn't get any bigger locally and state wide than for the Stephenville Yellow Jackets. The Jackets are a consensus top 3 pick in nearly every poll with many having Stephenville at the top spot. High expectations are nothing new for the Jacket program but they are even bigger with top talent returning and a drop in classification. For years Stephenville was one of the smallest 4A's in the state and now with an enrollment of 999 they are 2nd largest 3A school. The drop down shouldn't be looked at as a drop in competition either but more as going home. Four of the six playoff teams Stephenville faced in their 1998 state championship run are now 3A. The Jackets are back in familiar territory and with any luck the visions the The Jackets have for 2012 will end in grand fashion.   The season gets kicked off in unique style this Friday as Stephenville for the first time ever will not only play an out of state team but an international opponent. The Monterrey Tech Barregos or Wild Rams from Monterrey, Mexico. The Barregos have been playing football for 16 years winning the Mexican National Championship the last 4. Tech is a feeder school for Monterrey University which has won the last 8 Mexican national collegiate championships. The Barregos have played in Texas every year since 2006 playing mainly 4A and 5A schools. They call all their plays in english and have molded their game to match the American game as closely as possible. Tech will be a good quality football team and give the Jackets all they want.   Stephenville Yellow Jackets (0-0) vs. Monterrey Tech Barregos (0-0):

Monterrey Tech changed a few years ago from a ground oriented offensive scheme to a spread air it out attack. The Wild Rams throw the football about 70% of the time. The random highlight tapes I watched from the last two years show they have good size on the OL and speed where they need it. That is about all the info I have on the Monterrey Tech.   Defense
The Barregos live up to their name on defense. They run a multiple look based out of the 3-4. They are not afraid the bring the heat and will so often. That aggressive style lead to Tech giving up big plays to Highland Park last year in the passing game which they lost 46-7.   Special Teams
The only info I have here is that they do have a good kicking game.
Prediction Tech has played stout Texas competition every year since 2006. They will not be afraid or intimidated by the Jackets. Stephenville will have to bring it's "A" game because the Barregos definitely have the talent to pull the upset. With that said I have no doubt the Jackets will be pumped and ready to go for the season opener at home. The Jackets strong passing game should exploit Tech's aggressive style on defense.
Stephenville 42 Monterrey Tech 21
Now for the rest of the 7-4A picks.   Alvarado Indians (0-0) vs. Bridgeport Bulls (0-0): Bridgeport returns 7 offensive and 5 defensive starters off a 7-4 playoff team. Alvarado was the 3A D1 state finalist last year and returns 7 and 4 starters as well. The Indians are a higher caliber football team with so many starters back from a team that was 1 point away from their first state championship. I look for Alvarado to start fast and furious as they take the first step to get back to the big dance.
Alvarado 35 Bridgeport 14   Glen Rose Tigers (0-0) vs. Carrollton Ranchview Wolves (0-0): The Wolves return 4 off and 5 def starters from a team that went 2-8 a year ago. The Coach Tommy Dunn led Tigers have 6 off and 8 def starters off a 6-6 playoff team. Coach Dunn was a longtime Stephenville assistant before going over to Glen Rose in 2006. The Tigers have been a consistent playoff team and will over match Ranchview.
Glen Rose 38 Carrollton Ranchview 7   Hillsboro Eagles (0-0) @ Buffalo Bison (0-0): Buffalo is a 2A D2 team. They went 6-4 last year narrowly missing the playoffs and have 9 off. and 7 def. starters back. Hillsboro has 6 off. and 7 def. starters back off a 2-8 team. This should be a competitive ballgame with the Eagles escaping Bison country with a "W".
Hillsboro 20 Buffalo 17   Venus Bulldogs (0-0) vs. Fort Worth Polytechnic Parrots (0-0): 4A Poly has 8 off. and 1 def. starter back from a 3-7 team. Venus has 5 and 5 starters returning from a 5-5 ballclub. The Bulldogs will start the season out right against the Parrots.
Venus 28 FW Poly 7   Be Loud! and Be Proud! AHYCB

  Stephenville vs. Aledo   This is one Jacket fan that grossly underestimated the caliber of football we would see from the Monterrey Prepa Tec football team. The Barregos came to town and hit the Jackets right in the mouth. Stephenville looked a little stunned and it took a half of football before the Jackets got their bearings. Stephenville came out of the locker room and fought to get back in the game. The defense forced several 3 and outs and the offense got things going after early struggles. Monterrey had 3rd and long late in the 4th qtr and went to the air to pick up the first down. Sophomore WR/DB Jarrett Stidham came up with an INT around the goal line and returned the ball out to the 30 yard line. The Jackets had 2:14 on the clock down by 3. It was not to be as the Barregos defensive front forced a quick throw on a screen pass. The ball was tipped and intercepted by the DE and returned for the pick six. Sometimes it can take a game or two for a team to work out any kinks or weaknesses, and a good team like Monterrey can definitely help you find where you need to improve. The Jackets will need to become more physical and execute better in the trenches. Coach Briles said this about the offensive line in the 1998 highlight video, "as they go, we go." That is true now as it was then.   Stephenville is going from the frying pan to the fire as they take on rival and 3 time state champ Aledo. The Bearcats identity on offense has changed but the quality of product they put on the field hasn't. Aledo played Highland Park last week in the Tom Landry classic at SMU's Ford Stadium. The two teams traded blows in the first half as they felt each other out. There was no doubt in the 2nd half as Aledo dominated the Scots. I have a good friend that went and watched this game and he said the Bearcats played like a beast in the 2nd half and Highland Park had no answer for their physicality. The Jackets will find out real quick if their line play has improved against a very good Aledo front. I expect a packed house as these two teams write another chapter to their exciting rivalry.   Stephenville Yellow Jackets (0-1) vs. Aledo Bearcats (1-0):

The identity of the Bearcat offense has changed quite drastically. They replaced all but 1 starter off of last years title team. Gone are All-American Jonathan Gray and Tarleton QB Matt Bishop. The Aledo offense is vintage pre-Gray Aledo. They ground out 5 to 6 yards at a time and are consistently in 2nd and 3 and 3rd and 1. This makes them very difficult to defend. The running game was done by committee last week as 3 different players had double digit rushing attempts. Frysinger and Anders are the main ball carriers. Frysinger can fly and will pop a big one on you if you miss an assignment. Anders is a sophomore with a ton of potential. I saw him play last year as a freshman and he has great laterally quickness. Pate Davis takes over the QB spot and he continues a long line of dual threat Bearcats QBs. Aledo has their usual solid offensive line. The receiving core was led by Taco Anderson last week and has their lone returning starter in Willie Gibson. Anderson had a 40 yard TD reception and Gibson a 33 yard TD reception.   Defense
This is the side of the ball the Bearcats are the stoutest at. They return 7 starters off a defense that by the time the playoffs came around was rock solid. They are led by an extremely talented linebacking core. MLB Jordan Mittie was one of the key move ups last year that solidified this defense. He carries on a tradition of excellent Aledo middle linebackers. Gunner Johnson on the strong side wreaked havoc last week and should the whole season. The Bearcats defensive ends put a ton of pressure on the Highland Park QB last week and will be difficult to deal with. Rounding out the backside of the Aledo defense is a good secondary led by free safety Clayton Lowe.   Special Teams
The kicking game has been somewhat of an adventure for the Bearcats over the years but it appears this time Aledo has themselves a solid kicker in Chance Nevarez. Nevarez can put it inside the 5 yard line on his deep kickoffs and nailed 33 yard field goal against Highland Park. #47 Baker Roberson is their punter and he did a good job last week averaging nearly 40 yards a punt.
Prediction The Jackets offense will get tested very quickly by a talented Bearcat defense. Defensively I think Stephenville matches up well with Aledo. They will score some points but the Wardogs should be able to hold them down enough to give the offense a chance. There is a very good possibility that this Aledo team could win their 4th state championship in a row and the early returns show that they are up for the challenge. The Jackets are a very good team as well but they have some issues in the trenches to work on and this is a tough team to do that against. The Bearcats appear to be at a different level than the Jackets this early in the season. These regular season games between the two get pretty wild sometimes and I think this one will be no different. The Jackets get some more of that Tarleton Memorial magic and pull the upset.
Stephenville 28 Aledo 27
Now for the rest of the 7-4A picks.   Alvarado Indians (1-0) @ Mexia Blackcats (0-1): The Indians just dominated Bridgeport last week 64-13. Mexia appears to be about the same caliber team as Bridgeport has they got pounded themselves by China Spring 69-20. Hide the women and children as this one will get ugly.
Alvarado 56 Mexia 14   Glen Rose Tigers (1-0) vs. China Spring Cougars (1-0): Both teams won big last week as they went over 60 points in their respective victories. The Tigers have a slight edge being at home. This should be a very good ball game.
Glen Rose 38 China Spring 35   Hillsboro Eagles (0-1) vs Hamilton Bulldogs (1-0): Hillsboro may be down this year as they got beat pretty good by 2A Buffalo 49-26. Hamilton meanwhile took care of business over Comanche 33-14. I expect a similar type of score for the Bulldogs this week.
Hamilton 35 Hillsboro 10   Venus Bulldogs (1-0) vs. Dallas Jefferson Patriots (0-1): Venus has been trending upwards since last year's 5-5 finish. The Bulldogs had a convincing win as they shutout FW Poly 33-0. Jefferson is historically one of the worst football programs in Texas. Venus should roll big in this one..
