Preseason Austin-Area Slighted and Sleeper Team '12

Not every player can be chosen as the very best.  After reading two days worth of reactions to our preseason All-Austin Area Teams, we had to drop a follow up.  This is a look at some of the stars we may have overlooked in our first go-round.  We then follow up with some players flying 'under the radar'.  Any of our highlighted up-and-comers could end the upcoming season as one of its top producers.

McNeil WR
Noticed that Ryan Murphy hasn't shown up on y'all's lists. Just wait. He'll be a big factor for the Mavs this season.
07/27/2012 5:29PM
Mcneil's receivers have been insignificant in the past due to the offense they run. Receivers make more of an impact blocking than anything else.
07/27/2012 5:46PM
anderson Trojans
Xavier Garcia is a returning 15-5a all district TE who's going to start both ways but I haven't seen him on your lists. He'll be a stud
07/27/2012 6:09PM
McNeil WR - Ryan's on our first list :)
Indeed, Ryan is the man. We put him on our first installment, when exclusively talking 5A. We also S/O Nick Parinella. Read it here http://bit.ly/OlMtxg
07/27/2012 6:11PM
Anderson Trojans, Garcia listed as DE on 1st installment
Xavier is a great TE (as is Wake Smith for Anderson). Since they both play defense/offense, we listed them on the first installment of our 5A talk. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/OlMtxg
07/28/2012 12:14PM
Manor lb
Quinton Grant from Manir now that he is back at lb will cause problems and Barion Henry at safety well just ask an Lopez bout the hit he took from him
07/28/2012 10:43PM
vista ridge
What happen to vista ridge QB Leland Dunn? We seen this kid in some camps and he looked great.
07/29/2012 5:25PM
Players selection
How are the player selected for FNFS talk show?
07/30/2012 5:26PM
Totally Whiffed
Hunter Streuling - FS Lake Travis - He will be an impact player on LT's D.
07/31/2012 4:10PM
Manor LB, Grant and Henry are some hard hitters. 17-4A will be one of the most fun districts to watch. Vista Ridge, the Rangers' Dunn is still the projected starter on our watch list. We had Lowe down as an up-start, since Leland's entering his senior year. The team actually talks about the QB situation in an upcoming video (drops before August 3rd). Totally Whiffed, we have Hunter on our first installment of 5A highlighted players: http://bit.ly/OlMtxg Players selected: We reach out usually in rounds by district. Is there a school you want to see get some pub? We try to keep the teams from our main coverage area: 17-4A, 25-4A, 26-4A, 15-5A and 16-5A
07/31/2012 11:59PM
Ñoah Douglas, not Thompson. Just want to help with the correct name. Thank you
08/30/2012 4:11PM
The good the slighted the up and coming
Notice only one Marble Falls receiver on your list. The starting four are interchangeable. Gray is the big speed guy, Ishia Carson also a deep threat, and Parnell who had to play qb last year on varsity level. Brennen Parker at linebacker could be a force.
