Everyone wants to say, "I saw them when…"

Seeing those athletes before they blow up on the college or professional scene like Boston Celtic Carsen Edwards (Atascocita) or future NFL first-rounder Walker Little of Stanford (Episcopal).

So, who are the Big Tickets entering the 2019 Houston-area sports season.

No. 1 Zach Evans, North Shore Football, RB, 2020

Nation's No. 1 recruit can run over, around and make people miss better than anyone in the country. You better get to the game early because North Shore will be blowing people out by halftime. Great for his future because he doesn't have a ton of tread on the tires.


No. 2 Demond Demas, Tomball/North Forest, Football, Texas A&M-commit, 2020

Not sure if he plays at Tomball or North Forest, but this guy is one of the best overall athletes in Texas. He won state in the high jump a few years back, which translates to the football field. He has swag, athleticism and will be a difference-maker early for the Aggies. He is a great self-promoter and his ability matches his hype.

Julia Faseler has seen it all on the volleyball court.

The Second Baptist School senior has been digging volleyballs at an elite level since middle school. She has seen the speed and power of the Class 6A game when she played varsity at state-ranked Pearland Dawson.

The libero moved to Second Baptist School entering her junior season and hit the ground running.

"I really wanted to get to a Christian-based school where the bible is implemented in what we do on and off the court," she said. "It's been a great experience for me personally. I wouldn't change a thing.

"Coach (Sue) Berg has been amazing," she said. "She's one-of-a-kind and is a tremendous motivator. I love playing for her."

Now a senior, Faseler has taken the baton as a team leader for a young team.

"It's been so fun this season," she said. "I've made so many friends here and have grown really close on the court. I've also learned so much on how to effectively lead, which is a great life skill.

"I've played defense my entire career and I love libero so I can control what we are doing on the back row."
