Monica Gonzalez has quite the resume.

She played college soccer at Notre Dame, played in World Cups and the Olympics with the Mexican National Team, has been a studio analyst for ESPN and played and coached in the professional ranks.

She has recently been named the Fort Bend Christian Academy girls' soccer coach for the 2019-20 season.

"We are so blessed to get Coach Gonzalez on our campus this season," FBCA AD Kelly Carroll said. "Her international experience as well as her recent work in Mexico with younger females is unmatched. She has been to two World Cups, the Olympics and commentated for ESPN for the 2011 World Cup and Champions League. Her most recent position that brought her to Houston was as an assistant coach of he Houston Dash. I'm excited for her to be impactful with our players. Our girls have a renewed excitement about them that will make this season great.

"She also has her own Wikipedia page," Carroll laughed.

Football fans, this will be a feast of incredible games this weekend as the Regional Semis have snuck up on us.

Let's take a look at the Games of the Week and throw out some "fearless" predictions.

Here we go.

...

It's Katy vs North Shore... Again. Let's not rehash all of the times they've played in the past... that was the past.

General thoughts?

North Shore's offense is starting to ramp up as super-freak Zach Evans is revving his engine. The OL is solid and QB Dematrius Davis (Va Tech-commit) makes good decisions. The key on offense is if North Shore can loosen up the front seven of Katy, meaning plays downfield to Shadrach Banks (Texas A&M-commit) and crew. Banks didn't play in the first game, and the 'Stangs lost.

Katy's defense is nice. Ty Cana is a beast at MLB and teams up with wily senior Jaylen Phillips. They are really good. The secondary is on point with Bryan Massey (UTSA-commit). He runs the show in the back.

When Katy has the ball, it's all about WR Jordan Patrick -- a great HS football player who is as slippery as they come. Will Ron Hoff play? Most likely. Don't sleep on Katy's TEs and full-back. They make plays also. The OL wore out North Shore's defense in Week 1. Can they do it again?

Special teams and turnovers will play big roles in this game, but it's going to be man-on-man football in the trenches.

PREDICTION: North Shore wins when it counts and advances to Regional Finals.
