FANSTAND: ROUND ROCK SQT 2012 – ‘POOL A’ PREVIEW
 
Marble Falls Mustangs Football Marble Falls Mustangs (District 25-4A, Cen-Tex West) Head Coach: Todd Dodge

Fanstand Skill Player Watch List:
WR Carson Bowen (’14)
QB Jay Watson (’13)
WR James Fry (’13)
WR Cody Shulz (’13)

Notes:

Losing 26 seniors (including 3 year QB Woerner) is tough, but Fry and Bowen lead a young crew.  James normally plays RB, but will split wide for this Summer’s 7 on 7 session.  With a high profile hire at head coach, the Mustangs community will expect improvements.  Our first full look at potential QB Watson in a pass heavy setting.  Wondering who will replace Cauble’s production in 2012.

Vista Ridge Rangers Vista Ridge Rangers (District 24-4A, Cen-Tex West) Head Coach: Rodney Vincent

Fanstand Skill Player Watch List:

WR James Cotterell (’13)
WR Adrian Duncan (’13)
QB Leland Dunn ('13)
DB Kevin Harris (’14)
WR Blake Gossett (’14)
RB Stedman Mayberry (’14)
QB Zach Lowe (’13)
LB Dillon Carter (’13)
LB Jamison Geracci (’13)

Notes:
The Rangers look to make consecutive trips to College Station, after last year’s trip to the 7 on 7 State Championship Tournament.  The team is ready to prove that 2011 was a fluke.  There are several Senior ’14 Ranger players who could make an impact this Fall.  Proving themselves in Summer drills could go a long way towards the coaching deciding who starts.  We remember Cotterell and Duncan as some of the more impressive skill players from last summer.  Geracci won’t be able to tackle anyone, but we’re interested in seeing how he defends the pass.  Dunn looks like the man to replace Estes, but Lowe can contribute if asked.  The VR bounce-back begins in May.

Cedar Park Timberwolves Cedar Park Timberwolves (District 26-4A, Cen-Tex West) Head Coach: Joe Willis

Fanstand Skill Player Watch List:

DB Grayson Cotham (’13)
WR Bill Estevanott (’14)
LB Peter Maneikis (’14)
RB Mikal Wilson (’13)
DB Blake Bouffard   (’14)
TE Austin Hisler (’13)
DB Trevon Spohrer (’13)
QB Ethan Fry ('13)
LB Michael Dayanandan (’13)
WR Christian Garcia (’14)
RB Nathan Harwell (’13)

Notes:

This will be our first look at Ethan Fry playing QB in an extended passing set.  This time last year, Alex Curl was handling Summer duties for Brian Hogan.  Rumors swirl that OL Austin Hisler could get looks at TE next year.  Summer could be fun for the big man.  Some believe Estevanott is destined for stardom.  Harwell is a proven stud.  CP is not known as a Summer 7 on 7 threat, but could change minds this May.

Westwood Warriors Westwood Warriors (District 16-5A, Cen-Tex North) Head Coach: Anthony Wood

Fanstand Skill Player Watch List:

QB Bear Fenimore (’14)
QB Sam Swensen (’13)
WR Travis Dale (’14)
WR Ben Harris (’13)
DB Brad Watson (’13)
DB Tyler Logan (’13)
WR Garrett Gibbins (’14)
WR Drew Hillhouse (’13)
DB Sean Hoeferkamp (’14)
DB Daniel Fry (’14)
LB Blake Thomas (’14)
LB Michael Fisher-Jones (’14)
RB Mason Bartek (’14)
RB Tanner Osborn (’13)
WR Josh Bishop (’14)

Notes:
Sure, Bear Fenimore will be fun to watch.  His skill players will make Westwood one of the more entertaining squads at May 26th’s tournament.  The list of 2014 players above bodes well for the future of WW.  This year could belong to DB Watson and WR Harris.  Breakout campaigns from Hoeferkamp and Bartek are expected.  Logan and Osborn are already proven producers.  The Warriors expect to not only win the weekend tournament, but compete for the 7 on 7 Championship in July.
 
POOL A PREDICTIONS:

Based on talent and home turf advantage, Westwood is the early favorite.  We think Vista Ridge is sneaky good.  There’s a reason they went to the Championship tournament in 2011.  Both the Rangers and Warriors have experience with success in this arena.

Cedar Park has been known as a passive 7 on 7 team, but could make things interesting.  QB Fry has a chance to improve the passing game – which could translate into regular season offensive balance.  The Timberwolves have too much pride to lay down, and will be fun to watch during the morning round. 

Marble Falls may not pose a threat to the larger teams in Pool A.    With higher expectations for the upcoming year, we expect a spirited effort from the Mustangs.
