HOUSTON – At a moment's notice, Joe Price III is ready to get a college coach everything he needs.

Setting up a visit, a player's transcripts, test scores and whatever other info is requested about one of North Shore's football stars is accessible at his fingertips.

Price's phone has been busy, especially since North Shore won the Class 6A Division I State Championship and even more so since the NCAA Recruiting deed period ended on January 10.

"Obviously the night of the game I got a lot of congratulatory texts," Price, North Shore's recruiting coordinator, said. "Guys like Shadrach Banks were getting offers while the game was going on. Pretty much since the dead period ended the 2020 guys have been getting interest nonstop. We've had huge numbers coming through the school to see the kids."

The numbers are crazy.

On a particular day last week, Price counted 17 college football programs walk into the field house on the east side.

Three of the teams had played in the College Football Playoff this year and another was the Division III National Champion.

"If you were imagining a school that you want to have come to your place, they're coming through here right now," Price said. "Schools that haven't been through here in a while, schools that are trying to get a presence in Texas, a little bit of everybody."

HOUSTON – It was another banner night for Humble ISD on the pitch.

For the third-straight season Kingwood girls soccer is heading to the Regional Semifinals with a 3-1 victory against Deer Park on Friday. Kingwood hasn't reached the Regional Finals since the 2010 season.

District-mate Atascocita moved on to the Regional Semifinals with a penalty kicks victory over Clear Springs. After full time and overtime, the Lady Eagles won the match 4-3 in penalty kicks. This is only the second time in program history Atascocita has reached the Regional Semifinals. The last trip to the fourth round came in the 2017 season.

Atascocita will face Tompkins at 12:30 p.m. and Cinco Ranch will play Kingwood at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12, at Deer Park's Abshier Stadium. The Regional Final between the winners will take place Saturday at 11:30 a.m.

Kingwood Park had the best night of all, sending not just its state semifinalist girls soccer team back to the Regional Tournament but also its boys team.
