Since the group of eight walked onto the pitch, Kingwood Park has done almost nothing but win, including reaching the state tournament for the first time in program history last season.

"They've taken us to places we've never been before and set that as an expectation," White said. "When I first came in it was the third year of the school's program. We improved each year but when this group came in and their sophomore year we saw a big jump. In not can we just compete but we expect to compete and win against some traditional powers."

The seniors notched another win in their belts on Wednesday blowing out Willis 8-1 on senior night.

The win improved the seniors to 50-1-2 in district play, winning three district crowns in four years, and 78-11-5 overall with one more district and one regular season match left on the schedule.

"It means a lot, playing for this program has been so fun," Kingwood Park senior Allie Byrd said. "Obviously, all the successes have been really fun going through the last four years."

Byrd, who scored four goals on senior night, has been one of the key pieces to this senior class.

The North Texas signee now has 76 career goals, which puts her three goals behind Kobe McNutt (78) for sole possession of third-most goals in Kingwood Park history. Once past her, Brooke Harper's 96 goals would be next for second-most all-time.

"The last four years I've seen the seniors graduate and I was like that is never going to be me," Byrd said. "Now it's actually me it's a weird feeling."

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
