RR SQT Preview: Pool C



Pool C will feature three Austin-area teams entering marquee years.  Cedar Ridge debuts as a UIL Varsity team.  Hendrickson is entering their first year in 5A.  Georgetown has hopes of a state title as they begin a 4A venture.  All three can get off on the right foot with a solid showing on May 26th.  Pool C kicks off at 9 a.m on Cedar Ridge's main field.  Here is our preview:

With a larger student body than any other Austin-area 5A school, the expectations are high in year one.  Coach Ford brings a Dallas-mentality to a fun group of youngsters.  They are slated for an August 31st season opener on the road versus the Lehman Lobos.  Cedar Ridge has athletes for days, and Mike McCann could put on a show.

Georgetown EaglesGeorgetown Eagles (District 17-4A, Head Coach: Jason Dean)

While we won't see our friend Brent Ellerbee in action this Summer, he'll work hard to get ready for Fall.  Brent will root on a talented cast of receivers and preseason MVP candidate during May 26th's SQT.  17-4A will likely be the area's highest scoring district...perfect for the Eagles' method of attack.  7 on 7 will be a great tune up for a team that may throw for over 3000 yards next year.

Hendrickson Hawks FootballHendrickson Hawks (District 16-5A, Head Coach: Chip Killian)

We first noticed RB Samaje Perine this time last year, during 7 on 7.  The speed and strength are natural, so he should be OK sitting this Summer session.  His teammates will get much needed work, as they prep to enter the 5A fray.  A new quarterback has Hawk Nation buzzing.  There is room for new players to make a name for themselves.

Abilene Cooper Cougars (District 3-5A, Head Coach: Todd Moebes)

After a 2 game postseson affair in 2011, the Cougars are hungry to follow up their 9-win campaign.  They have a junior at quarterback that has bided his time at wideout.  They'll make good competition for our Austin-area teams, who will need to watch for the following players we'll highlight.  There is no shortage of speed here.

POOL C Predictions: May 26th will be our first full extened look at Cedar Ridge.  We'll visit Raiders camp before that time, but it will be good to see them in elevated competition.  We think Pool C will boil down to Hendrickson and Georgetown.  Don't be surprised if the Cougars snatch a victory of two.  With a preseason MVP in QB Jake Hubenak and proven performers like Randy Knightner, the early edge goes to the Eagles.  That being said, the Hendrickson defensive backfield is our favorite of Pool C.  We'll see how it shakes out when the morning round kicks off at 9 a.m.
