The area-round is complete as the UIL Texas High School Playoffs move onto the regional round. The power programs are rising and the competition is getting fierce. Staying healthy is paramount and mistakes can flip games in an instant. 

Katy is destroying teams with old-fashioned football — running the ball and great defense. That can be said for Klein Collins, Cy-Fair, Westfield and North Shore. Atascocita, Lamar, Langham Creek and Friendswood do it by outscoring their opponents.

Class 5A is anchored by Manvel, Angleton and FB Marshall, while Foster has been a bit of a surprise. Manvel will have an epic matchup against Cedar Park this week.

Stay tuned to vypehouston.com for upcoming predictions and don’t miss our VYPE SCOREBOARD SHOW Friday’s at 10:15 on 97.5 FM.
